Greg Locke, senior pastor of Global Vision Bible Church in Nashville, hasn't been timid about his thoughts on the government's position on lockdowns during the COVID-19 pandemic. He has repeatedly called COVID a hoax and has refused to comply with government mandates from public health officials.
This past Sunday, he took his defiance further and took aim at the wearing of masks during his services. The message was posted on Twitter by a leftist organization called Right Wing Watch.
"Don't believe this Delta variant nonsense. Stop it. If you start showing up with all of these masks and nonsense, I will ask you to leave," Locke told his congregation. "I am not playing this Democrat games up in this church. If you want to social distance ... don't come to this church. I'm done with it. I ain't playing these stupid games."
Locke previously tweeted: "The Left says I'm a merchant of death because I don't allow masks at our church. Yet, since Sunday, they've threatened to beat me, burn down our church, rape my wife and kids, murder me slowly, turn me into the FBI, IRS, local police and ban my account.

He further went on to say:
"Lockdowns do not stop the spread of a virus, but they do cause the mass spread of government propaganda and media hysteria."
