How long until we hear about THIS fuckwit getting seriously ill and his "church" having an outbreak among his congregation?

No doubt his stance (assuming its real - wouldn't surprise me, to be honest, if he HAS been vaccinated) is mostly about donations and getting fame on Fox News and the like.

Evangelical pastor demands churchgoers ditch their masks: ‘Don’t believe this delta variant nonsense’

Since the early months of the coronavirus pandemic, Greg Locke, the pastor at a Nashville-area church, has repeatedly called covid a hoax, undermined emergency mandates and refused to comply with guidance from public health officials.

This week, Locke took his defiance a step further, making a sharp warning regarding mask-wearing.

If “you start showing up [with] all these masks and all this nonsense, I will ask you to leave,” Locke, 45, told scores of Global Vision Bible Church parishioners during his sermon on Sunday. His statement was followed by cheers and applause.

“I am not playing these Democrat games up in this church,” he added.

Global Vision Bible Church did not immediately respond to The Washington Post’s request for comment.

Locke’s fiery five-minute diatribe, in which he also denied the existence of the delta variant, comes as vaccination rates in his home state slow and infection rates climb. So far, about 44 percent of Tennesseans have received at least one dose of the vaccine, according to The Post’s vaccine tracker, making it among the states with the lowest rate. The state recently reported that 98 percent of people who died of covid and 97 percent of covid hospitalizations are among the unvaccinated.

The vaccine rollout in Tennessee made national headlines after the controversial firing of the state’s top immunization official, Michelle Fiscus, on July 12. Fiscus’s firing was the casualty of the Tennessee Department of Health’s campaign to encourage teenagers to get vaccinated against the coronavirus. The effort attracted ire from Republican state lawmakers.

In an interview with WTVF on Monday, Fiscus said Tenn. Gov. Bill Lee (R) consistently resisted the state’s promotion of the vaccine.

“I feel like the [health] department was gagged,” she said.

Locke’s evangelical church in Mt. Juliet, Tenn., about 20 miles east of downtown Nashville, has grown during the pandemic, CNN reported. The pastor’s controversial commentary on covid and the 2020 presidential election has attracted far-right churchgoers.

During a sermon last month, Locke called President Biden a fraud and “a sex trafficking, demon-possessed mongrel,” a reference to QAnon, an extremist ideology based on false claims.

He has also falsely claimed that the pandemic is “fake,” that the death count is “manipulated” and that the vaccine is a “dangerous scam.”


And the pastor has preached misinformation about the vaccine, including falsely claiming that it’s made of “aborted fetal tissue.”

During a sermon in May, Locke told churchgoers that he wasn’t getting the vaccine and would refuse to promote it.

“I discourage everybody under this tent to get it,” he said, according to CNN.

Locke has also openly defied the state’s emergency mandates. In July 2020, he posted on Facebook that the church was remaining open and that people did not have to wear masks or social distance.

“I don’t care if they send the military, they roll up in there with tanks … ladies and gentleman, we are staying open,” he said, according to Newsweek. “We are packed to capacity. You ain’t gotta wear a mask.”

Strutting back and forth on a stage beneath a sprawling red-and-white striped circus tent on Sunday, Locke launched into yet another impassioned monologue. This time, he warned churchgoers to not wear masks and railed against the possibility of more shutdowns.


“They will be serving Frostys in hell before we shut this place down, just because a buck wild, demon-possessed government tells us to,” Locke said, referencing the frozen dessert from Wendy’s.

“Don’t believe this delta variant nonsense,” he continued. “Stop it!”

He advised parishioners who are looking for services with social distancing “don’t come to this one” and chastised other churches for following public health advisories and abstaining from certain rituals as cases rise.

Tennessee resumes most vaccine outreach to minors paused after GOP backlash

“A bunch of pastors talking about how much they want to see people heal, and they’re afraid to baptize people because of a delta variant — I’m sick of it,” Locke said. “I ain’t playing these stupid games.”

Toward the end of his rant, Locke made one final warning.

“I’m going to be a problem moving forward,” he said. “I’m not giving in to this mess.”
but your fine with illegal immigrants walking straight through the southern border from all sorts of countries who could be carrying covid or tb or a multiple of sicknesses with them , selective outrage as usual and the other clown hoping they die such a nice guy

Where have I said I’m fine with illegal immigrants walking in uncontrolled?

No comment on the actual article and the general right wing idiocy which is going to drop us right back into masking and maybe even shutdowns?

Did you figure out yet where you heard about the supposed bogus PCR test?
50k plus have been released into the country and 13%!have shown up to first immigration hearing. The guy who invented the pcr test said it didn’t work properly for covid but you know better than him , keep on showering with your mask on

CDC in USA are now saying pcr tests are not able to distinguish between flu and covid .
Rahm the golfer is a weird case he has had covid has antibodies and is fully vaccinated but still tested positive for covid but is not sick and never was sick.
Strange people are not a little more curious about this

You’ll not get flu in the summer generally, you can still get it and not be sick but pass it on, I’ve you more cleverer than that
so is he testing positive for the flu or covid ?
Most policies have been based on test results over the last year if the tests are compromised then the policies  have  to be too.

So let’s get your thoughts first.

Is covid real or just flu?

Is flu seasonal or all year round?

With limited travel globally why has ‘flu’ become such a big spreader?

If it’s flu then why not just use the same flu jab that has been used for years

Why are governments shooting themselves in the foot with restrictions and what do they get out of it?
I don’t know what he’s testing positive for
I think you could get flu at any time no ?
I didn’t know it had
Governments are already  ramping up for a big flu season.
Let’s see hospital numbers in uk in next few weeks

I think you need to re-evaluate your news sources and stop relying on "journalists" who don't know their ass from elbow when it comes to this stuff.

The CDC is advising labs to switch to tests that can detect BOTH Covid and flu.

They're not advising them, late in the day, that the test couldn't distinguish them.

My guess is that such tests now exist, whereas this time last year they didn't.

After December 31, 2021, CDC will withdraw the request to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) of the CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel, the assay first introduced in February 2020 for detection of SARS-CoV-2 only. CDC is providing this advance notice for clinical laboratories to have adequate time to select and implement one of the many FDA-authorized alternatives.

In preparation for this change, CDC recommends clinical laboratories and testing sites that have been using the CDC 2019-nCoV RT-PCR assay select and begin their transition to another FDA-authorized COVID-19 test. CDC encourages laboratories to consider adoption of a multiplexed method that can facilitate detection and differentiation of SARS-CoV-2 and influenza viruses. Such assays can facilitate continued testing for both influenza and SARS-CoV-2 and can save both time and resources as we head into influenza season. Laboratories and testing sites should validate and verify their selected assay within their facility before beginning clinical testing.

https://www.cdc.gov/csels/dls/locs/2021/07-21-2021-lab-alert-Changes_CDC_RT-PCR_SARS-CoV-2_Testing_1.html

f**king right wingers think scientists and doctors are a bunch of vacuous morons who came down with the last shower and are no better than some blowhard on youtube or Fox News.
j70 the tests don’t work properly what’s the problem with that ? You guess ? Who are you to guess but tell me my opinion is thrash ? Give the Fox News a rest it’s getting old and played .
Stay inside with your mask on and remove yourself from society please your an extremist.

There will be 2500 fans in Killarney stadium for the game tomorrow wearing masks and spread out but probably 20k in the town watching from beer gardens and hotels all mask less , the stupidity boggles the mind . The fear is out of control and is not backed up by data, and judging by what I read on here 95% of the country is suffering from it

135k incorrect votes counted in New York mayors race wtf but anyone who questions anything about presidential election is a conspiracy theorist or a right wing nut job isn’t that how it goes .

There is a difference.

There is evidence that there was a mistake in the figures that were published for the NYC mayoral election. They know what the problem was and have communicated what the problem was.

In the presidential election Republicans made up stuff because they didn't like the result.
43k swung the election in 3 states would you not want to make sure everything is above board .

You would.

And they did.

Every state has multiple safeguards, checks, validations etc. After they were followed and Trump lost the Trumpnuts didn't like the result and started making up stuff.

Just seeing this now.

Should have known he would make this idiotic comparison. Unfortunately for the Trump cult, facts and evidence matter in the real world (although they're doing their best to pass laws in some places to ensure that next time they can change the result regardless).
did you see the townhall on cnn last night ? Quite embarrassing wouldn’t you say

No, I didn't see it.

Pray, tell us what horrors did (whoever it was) inflict on the world?
just another hour of word salad from joe
