The Tennessean reports:
Controversial Tennessee pastor Greg Locke, who has repeatedly been accused of spreading misinformation about COVID-19, was banned from Twitter on Tuesday. After the permanent suspension, Locke, who pastors Global Vision Bible Church in Mt. Juliet, posted a video on Facebook saying he was being censored for “dropping gospel bombs.”
In the video, Locke claimed that one hour after being banned, his church’s attorney filed lawsuit against the social media giant he calls “censorship Nazis.” He once served on an advisory committee for Evangelicals for Trump and regularly attended events in Washington, D.C. He was in Washington on Jan. 6, the day of the Capitol insurrection.

From my report yesterday:
Locke, of course, is most infamous for claiming that there’s no such thing as COVID and that the vaccine is totally a Satanic/Nazi plot by the deep state to take away bibles and guns.
He first appeared on JMG last summer when he threatened to kick in the teeth of a teen Dunkin’ Donuts employee for asking him to wear a mask in the store.
Shortly afterwards, Christian sites reported that Locke had been cheating on his wife with a much younger church secretary. He and his wife then divorced and he married his mistress.
In the video below, Locke repeatedly screams that he’s the only pastor with a verified account to have been banned by Twitter. (Anyone know of any others?) As you’ll see, Locke pretends to be flabbergasted that any pastor would be banned by a social media platform.
