Anti-gay pastor still upset at Trump's loss, calls Biden a pedophile and Harris a 'Jezebel demon'

 A wonderful side benefit to Trump no longer being in office is how it has affected some members of the religious right. It's as if Jesus came down from Heaven and slapped them. A lot of it has to do with how much egg many of them have on their faces from the embarrassment of having to explain pre-election day assurances that God said Trump would win. Some admitted they were wrong and others made excuses.

And then there are folks like Pastor Greg Locke of the Global Vision Bible Church in Tennessee. 

That last statement is not altogether accurate. I doubt there are any pastors like Locke. He is in a class by himself and that's not necessarily a good thing.

Locked predicted that Trump would win. And now that the election is over, he is still claiming that Trump won.  

And it gets better (or worse, or more comical depending on your sense of mood.) During a  recent sermon, Locke had some very vulgar things to about President Biden, Vice President Harris, and various Hollywood celebrities. He called them a bunch of sex-trafficking perverts, making sure to single out Harris by calling her a 'Jezebel demon.' Then came the claims that there are child trafficking tunnels under the Capitol and the White House.

And  based upon past sermons, Locke is also a rabid homophobe (which really shouldn't surprise anyone.)

Earlier today, Franklin Graham and the Family Research Council verbally attacked Olympic athlete Gwen Berry for supposedly disrespecting the American flag. They have yet to comment about Locke and I doubt they will. It's rather indicative of the religious right's sad state of misplaced priorities and inflated sense of importance.

Jessica Stern

Veteran Activist Jessica Stern Named U.S. Envoy for LGBTQ+ Rights - A much better official than that ghastly Richard Grenell.

Catholic & Southern Baptist leaders are making faith more about their politics than God - Yep. It's going to backfire and then they are going to blame us.
