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.
Right-wing pastor Greg Locke used his sermon today to allege that there are child-trafficking "tunnels" under the Capitol and White House and accuse Joe Biden, Oprah Winfrey, and Tom Hanks of being "a bunch of pedophiles." pic.twitter.com/hYC864ir8a— Right Wing Watch (@RightWingWatch) June 27, 2021
Locke’s extremism ranges widely. He is old school religious-right when it comes to LGBTQ people, denouncing Pride Month and marriage equality, saying, “It’s always been about these pedophiles!” https://t.co/9mxYzEGx0O— Right Wing Watch (@RightWingWatch) June 28, 2021
