Greg Locke, an anti-LGBT pastor of Global Vision Bible Church in Tennessee, released a rant-filled YouTube video this week threatening to brutally beat a Dunkin Donuts employee for asking him to wear a mask.
According to Locke, nothing in history has “separated the body” from the “Lord Jesus Christ” the way masks have. Masks aren’t safety precautions, Locke says, they’re “gags.” He then goes on to regurgitate his beliefs that mask “don’t do anything whatsoever.”
In his rant, Locke claims that he has gone to that same Dunkin’ Donuts without a mask many times before.
“But then all of a sudden, here comes Nazi Skippy,” Locke says, referring to a Dunkin’ Donuts employee who asked him to wear a mask. According to Locke’s description of events, it’s clear that the employee was just doing his/her job. But Locke was so incensed by being asked to wear a mask, he initiated a confrontation with the employee, even saying he had to control himself from “coming over the counter” and assaulting the person.
“Let me be truthful in what I said, because more than likely it’s on video and it’ll be on Newsweek or Time Magazine sometime this week,” Locke says before describing what he says were the employee’s false accusations of him trying to kick in the glass.
“I said, ‘If you call me a liar one more time, I’m going to take these work boots and I’m going to kick your teeth down your throat,’” Locke said.
