The Tennessee-based Baptist pastor [Greg Locke] offered his latest tirade against "godless Democrats" and the Biden administration, claiming the federal government only wants "compliance," and not improved public health ...

...

"Don't believe this Delta variant nonsense. Stop it! Stop it! If they go through round two and you start showing up with all these masks and nonsense, I will ask you to leave," Locke told the cheering audience. "I will ask you to leave. I am not playing these Democrat games up in this church."

"I don't need to be a jerk for Jesus, but...I'm not going to kowtow down to a wicked godless culture," Locke continued, sparking raucous applause. "Here's what the left has told us: 'If you comply, you compromise, if you comply, eventually you'll get in our good graces.' But no, you'll never be able to comply enough!"

...

The conservative pastor's accusations against the Biden administration and Democratic lawmakers have included his claims that ... Kamala Harris is a "jezebel demon" and that the administration is overseeing "child-trafficking tunnels" beneath Washington, D.C.

"I ain't playing their games, shut the nation down for a second time...it didn't hurt the economy bad enough. You know what happens when they shut down private businesses? They open government businesses. The government isn't hurting one bit," Locke said ...

"Yes, I'm narrow-minded...doesn't matter to me what 'The View' says, what Oprah [Winfrey] says, what Whoopi [Goldberg] says, what [Pastor] Joel Osteen says. If you want to social distance, go to First Baptist Church but don't come to this one! I'm done with it, I said I'm done with it," Locke said ...

"They're talking about shutting down this nation for round two, talking about masking everybody back up, shutting down churches, hey, my hind leg if they think they're going to shut this church down," he added.
