Evangelical Pastor Greg Locke Blasts Donald Trump for Vaccine Support

Pastor Greg Locke, the Founder and Lead Pastor of Global Vision Bible Church in Tennessee, is the quintessential Trump-supporting evangelical minister. The two basic tenets of his church are the exaltation and glorification of Donald Trump and spreading COVID-19 conspiracy theories.

Locke’s theology is distorted and perverted because he spends more time inside Trump’s rectum than he does reading the Bible. He will unceremoniously excommunicate any parishioner who speaks ill of his orange messiah or who advocates in favor of vaccines or wearing a mask.

Criticizing Trump was the unforgivable sin as far as Locke was concerned until his hero publicly and repeatedly spoke in favor of vaccines.

Locke told members of his church that he is “sick” of the former president promoting vaccines. “He was lied to and he knows it. And his arrogance won’t let him change his mind. I’m telling you right now, on the authority of the Bible, if Donald Trump does not get out in front of this vaccine nonsense, he is going to lose his voter base in the next coming election,” Locke said during a recent sermon.

Locke isn’t the only prominent Trump supporter who has broken with him over his advocacy of vaccines, Alex Jones called him an idiot for pushing vaccines.

The scales have been removed from their eyes, and now these former Trump cultists realize that he’s arrogant and stupid. No kidding, he’s also racist, misogynist, homophobic, ignorant, vindicative and a steaming pile of human shit.

Trump’s promotion of vaccines will result in the exodus of some of his followers from his cult. I wish they would leave him because he’s a racist idiot and not because he’s promoting vaccines, but thank goodness he’s losing some of his devotees.  

Only a Schizophrenic, Charlatan or Narcissist Says ‘God Told Me’

It’s impossible to prove the existence of God, likewise it’s impossible to prove that He doesn’t exist.

Theists, and especially evangelical Christians, rely on tautological or circular reasoning. They will engage in lengthy rhetorical flights, but their argument boils down to:

The Bible is the Word of God and the Bible says there is a God, how can a mere mortal disagree with God? I believe there’s a God because the Bible is the Word of God.

Gravity is the invisible force that keeps us on the surface of the Earth, and the Earth in orbit around the Sun. From Galileo to the present day the reality of gravity has been conclusively proven by scientific means. Even an idiot will realize that gravity is real when a pine cone falls off a tree and hits him on the head.

God is also an invisible force, unfortunately there is no way to prove His existence by scientific means or by rhetorical flourish. When a Christian says “I know that God is real because he changed my life”, we must adopt the attitude that he is entitled to his belief, regardless if it’s based on emotion and not on logic.

When Christians declares that they talk to the Almighty, we must respect their faith without being condescending.

However, my patience runs out when they insist that God talks back to them. Whenever a believer exclaims, “God told me…”, I instantly turn a deaf ear.

Of course, God doesn’t talk to anyone, and whenever anyone prefaces their remarks by uttering, “God told me” they are just trying to give more weight to their words by ascribing them to God.

When you hear anyone, whether he/she is a minister or the slob sitting next to you at the bar, say “God told me”, you have every right to tell them: Shut the fuck up.

Televangelist Michael Todd Illustrates How Disgusting Evangelical Christianity is by Rubbing His Spit on Man’s Face

“Popular Oklahoma Pastor Michael Todd of Transformation Church has apologized to his more than 1.8 million fans across social media after receiving public backlash for wiping globs of spit on the face of a man he has identified as his little brother during his sermon on Sunday.”

Christian Post

Everything about evangelical Christianity is disgusting, from its literal interpretation of the Bible that condones slavery and genocide, to its infatuation with Donald Trump, to its misogyny, homophobia and xenophobia.

Televangelist Michael Todd illustrated just how disgusting his religion is by wiping globs of his spit on the face of his brother during his Sunday sermon.

Todd even grossed himself out, he apologized for his publicity stunt saying:

“It’s never my intention to distract others from God’s Word and the message of Jesus … even with illustrations! I apologize for my example being too extreme and disgusting!”

I watched it back, and it was disgusting. Like, that was gross. I want to validate everybody’s feelings. That was a distraction from what I was really trying to do — trying to make the word come alive and make people see the story.”

Believing that a woman’s gender disqualifies her from being a pastor is disgusting.

Spreading COVID by refused to mask up and getting vaccinated is disgusting.

Demonizing gays and lesbians is disgusting.

Supporting the racist, homophobic, misogynist, spiteful, petty and vengeful Donald Trump is disgusting.

Failure to take action against pedophile clergy is disgusting.

Spreading QAnon conspiracy theories is disgusting.

Rubbing spit on a man’s face is nothing compared to these evil sins that define the evangelical movement.

Some QAnon Cultists Believe JFK Was Trump’s Body Double at Arizona MAGA Rally

“Members of a QAnon group based in Dallas have floated the theory that John F. Kennedy is not only alive, but disguised himself as former President Donald Trump over the weekend to attend a rally in Florence, Arizona.”

Huffington Post

QAnon cultists believe in some conspiracy theories that are absolutely bonkers:

A cabal of Satan-worshipping elites (including most Democratic politicians and Hollywood stars) run a child sex ring and control most governments in the world, including the United Sates.

Humans do not play any role in climate change.

Most mass shootings in recent years were staged hoaxes.

COVID-19 was created in a lab in China.

QAnon cultists live in Crazy Town, and the Mayor/Messiah of Crazy Town is the looniest bastard of them all, Donald Trump. Craziness is the coin of the realm in Crazy Town, and the residents have never been introduced to a conspiracy theory that’s too bonkers.

Some QAnon members believe John F. Kennedy is alive and well and impersonating Donald Trump at MAGA rallies. If JFK was miraculously still alive, he wouldn’t be doing a gig as a body double for Trump, he’d be trying to get into Melania Trump’s pants.

QAnon believers are infatuated with the Kennedys, they also believe JFK and his son John F. Kennedy Jr will rise from the dead to help Trump reclaim the presidency.

Not to belabor the point, but if JFK was resurrected, he’s be too busy making sure his presidential pecker was fully resurrected, and helping Trump regain the presidency would be the last thing on his mind.

I wrote this essay to try to bring home the point that QAnon cultists are absolutely nuts, and you shouldn’t waste any time trying to bring them to their senses.

Joe Biden Goes Off the Rails in His Voting Rights Speech

A firebrand, Joe Biden is not.

Biden won the 2020 presidential election by running as a moderate with a decades-long history in the Senate of achieving bipartisanship by cultivating personal relationships with his Republican colleagues.

He was perceived by the electorate as a level-headed statesman who was best equipped to unite our country after the chaos and division of the Trump administration.

We saw a different version of Biden in in a speech announcing his support for changing the filibuster rules to allow a simple majority to pass new voting rights legislation.

“Do you want to be the side of Dr. King or George Wallace?,” screamed Biden. “Do you want to be the side of John Lewis or Bull Connor? Do you want to be the side of Abraham Lincoln or Jefferson Davis? This is the moment to decide, to defend our elections, to defend our democracy. If you do that you will not be alone.”

Biden’s rhetoric was over the top and shrill, and his demeanor was off-putting. Even some Democrats criticized Biden’s rhetoric comparing the current opposition of Republicans to the voting rights legislation to segregationists.

Barack Obama often employed a professorial tone in his speeches, but he was capable of employing fiery oratory when he was led by the spirit. And it worked for him, because he was a relatively young for a politician.

Fire and brimstone verbosity doesn’t work for an old politician who looks like the Grim Reaper. Biden looked unhinged and deranged. Not a good look.

What the hell did Biden accomplish? Nothing. It’s Democrat senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema who have sabotaged his voting rights bills by refusing to agree to change the filibuster rules. If Manchin and Sinema have proven anything, it’s that they are immune to public pressure from their Democratic colleagues.

Unfortunately, the voting rights bills are dead. Biden should chill the hell out, and stop promising things he can’t deliver.

Evangelicals Don’t Get It: Having More Than Two Children is a Sin

“A majority of Americans in a new survey reject the idea that society is better off if marriage and procreation are prioritized. However, white evangelicals – who often hold more traditional views on the issue – think just the opposite.

The Pew Research Center survey found that only 34 percent of U.S. adults believe society is better off if ‘people make marriage and having children a priority,” while 64 percent believe society is ‘just as well off if people have priorities other than marriage and children.’

Yet among white evangelicals, 56 percent say society is better off with marriage and procreation being prioritized, while 41 percent say other priorities are fine.”

Christian Headlines

When Jehovah commanded Adam & Eve to “be fruitful and multiply”, it made perfect theological and evolutionary sense, if human beings were to survive as a species, an exponential growth spurt from day one was a biological necessity.

The first couple living in a pristine world could afford to procreate like rabbits without feeling a tinge of guilt, but today people living in an overpopulated and polluted world should think twice before bringing another child into this godforsaken world.

Americans get it, a life focused on getting married and having children is no longer a moral imperative. The opposite is true, a moral couple will take their financial situation and a surging world population into account, before having one or at the most two children.  

Evangelicals on the other hand are living in an alternate reality, where a woman’s greatest achievement is bearing children, and birthing a lot of little polluting monsters is somehow a good thing.

Once again, evangelicals are on the wrong side of history. Evolution doesn’t always get everything right, or else evangelicals would embrace birth control, be in favor of a woman’s right to choose, and stop having so many damn children

Why are White Evangelicals So Angry?

What emotion best describes white evangelicals?

Is it not seething anger? It doesn’t take any effort to picture a white evangelical shouting: Get off my lawn! Get out of my country! Stay out of my neighborhood! Don’t you dare enter my church!

Evangelicals used to place a high premium on repentance; they sought to repent of sins that angered their God, in the hopes it would bring them in harmony with their community.

Why are 21st century evangelicals so angry? It all stems from the fact that they have exchanged their compassionate and merciful messiah Jesus Christ for the sociopathic and vengeful Donald Trump.

Make no mistake about it, Trumpism has thoroughly corrupted the evangelical movement, in 2016 and in 2020 about 85 percent of evangelicals voted for their orange savior.

Evangelicals don’t measure the sincerity of their faith by how much they model the behavior of the kind and gentle Jesus Christ, but how they much they channel the vindictiveness, resentment and obnoxiousness of Trump.

Evangelicals judge the authenticity of your faith not by how closely you adhere to traditional Christian orthodoxy like the virgin birth and resurrection of Jesus Christ but by how loyal you are to the MAGA-controlled GOP.

Anger has corrupted the evangelical movement and destroyed the the Republican Party. It’s imperative that true Christians denounce the evangelical movement and that genuine Republicans cut out the cancer of Trumpism.

Evangelicals Love Their Long-winded Pastors

“Fewer than 10% of evangelical Protestants want to have shorter sermons during worship, while nearly a third want more in-depth teaching, according to recently released survey data.

According to the report, a copy of which was emailed to The Christian Post on Monday, only 7% of respondents want sermons to be shorter, while 85% believe the sermon lengths are acceptable as they are. About 8% percent said they wanted sermons to be longer.”

Christian Post

Sermons by evangelical ministers are devoid of empirical evidence, established science and common sense. You’d think their homilies would be short and sweet considering they appeal to the blind faith of their parishioners and they don’t engage in logical reasoning or a recitation of facts.

It shouldn’t take long for a bible-thumping preacher to bellow: The Bible says it, I believe it, and that settles it! Ya’ll go out there and convert the queers, commie liberals and feminazis to our Lord and Savior, Donald Trump!

But as anyone who has attended an evangelical service knows, pulpiters have a penchant for getting caught up in the Spirit, and they babble incoherently, seemingly endlessly.

When you are a cult member, and most evangelical congregations exhibit cult-like tendencies, you need constant reassurance. You need more than a ten-minute sermonette to cement your belief in your church’s myths, fables and conspiracy theories.

Hearing a televangelist screech for a minute is all the bullshit I can tolerate; thank God my mind and my spirit aren’t exposed to such toxic rhetoric.

To Demonstrate the Transparency of His Administration & His Mental Acuity Biden Must Hold a Lengthy Press Conference

“Biden has held seven total press conferences – formal settings where he takes traditionally unvetted questions from the press – four joint, and three solo, according to a count by the University of California at Santa Barbara’s American Presidency Project.”

Daily Mail

This is unacceptable for a president who pledged to run a transparent White House, and very telling for 79-year-old man who claims not to have cognitive issues.

Biden averages less than a dozen news conferences per year, in comparison Trump averaged 22.00 and Obama 22.38.

We all have a senile uncle that we don’t let interact with friends and acquaintances during large gatherings for fear he may make a spectacle out of himself.

Uncle Joe’s handlers keep him on a short leash, during press conferences he is given a list of reporters to call on, and they are rarely allowed to ask any follow-up questions. He provides short answers, and the only conservative journalist he calls on is the hapless Peter Doocy from Fox News. Doocy is good for comic relief, but there are serious conservative White House correspondents that Biden habitually ignores.

In order to demonstrate the transparency of his administration and his mental agility it’s imperative that Biden hold a lengthy formal press conference where he takes questions from all the journalists present, and allows each correspondent at least one follow-up question.

Millennials Turn in Their Treasonous Boomer Parents for Their Role in the January 6 Capitol Attack

“Many young Americans are still reeling from their parents’ involvement in the violence of a year ago – and some reported them to the police.

A year on from the Capitol attack by loyalist supporters of Donald Trump, many families are still reeling from members outing each other to law enforcement and offspring traumatized by their parents’ involvement in the insurrection.

The Guardian

Many young people turned in their parents for their role in the Capitol attack.

It’s incumbent upon anyone whose parents were involved in the insurrection to turn them in to the FBI, it’s the patriotic and Christian thing to do.

Indeed, if children turn them in, it’s evidence that their parents taught them to be civic-minded and to love their country before they became enthralled with Donald Trump and lost all perspective.

Young people would be well-advised not only to reject the terrorist actions of their parents, but also to reject the evangelical faith and the Republican ideology that inspired their treasonous and despicable crimes.

The evangelical movement and the Trump-enabling GOP are incompatible with democracy and patriotism.

There are still hundreds of insurrectionists that law enforcement has been unable to identify, millennials need to step up and do the right thing and turn in their treasonous Boomer parents.

Pope Francis: ‘Choosing Pets Over Children is Selfish’ Pope is Dead Wrong!

“Pope Francis criticized people who decided not to have children, but to have pets instead.

Pope Francis said “many couples do not have children because they do not want to, or they only have one and not more. But they have domestic animals – two dogs, two cats.” He called the decision not to have children a form of “selfishness.”

CBS News

The Grand Poopah of a patriarchal religious organization that maintains and celebrates a celibate priesthood has no business chiding conscientious couples who choose not to bring any children into this godforsaken overpopulated world.

Having children can be a form of selfishness, many parents, especially fathers, spit out children primarily to carry on their family name.

I can see how it benefits the Roman Catholic Church for their parishioners to be fruitful and multiply, every baby born to a Catholic family will most likely grow up to be a Catholic who supports the church financially.

Let’s not forget that a pedophile priesthood needs children to sate their perverse desires.

Would to God more couples chose adopting a pet over having a baby, nothing humanizes a family more than having a pet.

Jehovah commanded Adam and Eve to be fruitful and multiply, not an unwise mandate for a couple tasked with populating the world.

But in a world of nine billion souls, nobody Catholics, Protestants, Muslims or atheists should obey Jehovah’s obsolete commandment.

Joe Biden is Sending Mixed Messages on Wearing a Mask

Former president Donald Trump famously eschewed wearing a mask. After all, a face covering might project vulnerability and weakness, and that would conflict with the macho image the grotesquely obese clown with the double-chin and the sphincter-shaped mouth sought to cultivate. Suffice to say, Trump didn’t model good behavior when it came to COVID mitigation efforts or anything else.

President Joe Biden isn’t much of an improvement, nearly two years into the pandemic he’s still sending mixed messages. He is wearing a mask outside alone with his wife while walking his dog yet takes it off when he goes indoor to a retail store surrounded by people.

Wearing a mask while playing with his puppy on a deserted beach with the Secret Service more than ten yards away isn’t virtue signaling, it’s a sign of dementia.

Biden is fully vaccinated and boosted, there is no damn reason for him to wear a mask on a deserted beach, none whatsoever!

A good citizen who’s done the right thing, been vaccinated and boosted, washes his hands frequently and wears a mask, when necessary, has earned the right not to don a mask on a deserted beach.

The president by all means should model good behavior but wearing a mask in a sparsely populated beach is anal-retentive conduct.

News Networks Should Boycott Trump’s January 6, 2022 Mar-a-Lago Press Conference

When Franklin D Roosevelt, the 32nd president of the United States, delivered the “Day of Infamy” speech to a joint session of Congress on December 8, 1941 Americans were united in the belief that Imperial Japan and Nazi Germany posed an existential threat to America. Decades later, December 7, is still a national day of mourning and remembrance that binds us together as a nation.

January 6, 2021 when a mob of Donald Trump supporters attacked the Capitol in Washington, D.C., seeking to overturn his defeat in the 2020 presidential election by disrupting the joint session of Congress assembled to count electoral votes that would formalize then President-elect Joe Biden’s landslide victory is also a day that should live in infamy.

But a year later only Democrats and a relative handful of Republicans perceive January 6, 2021 as a day of infamy when a safe and secure presidential election was almost overturned by an attempted coup.

Most Republicans accept Trump’s Big Lie that he won the election as the Gospel and they consider the violence of January 6, 2021 as a false flag event.

On December 6, 2022 the twice-impeached former president Donald Trump is going to hold a press conference at Mar-a-Lago, and he is expected to downplay the violent insurrection, reiterate his Big Lie and use the event as a kick-off for his 2024 presidential campaign.

It is critical that the cable news networks and broadcast stations do the right thing, and refuse to carry Trump’s shit show live. They should not give him a platform to promote his lies and disinformation.

Enough is enough!

Organized Religion is Anathema

Organized religion poses a greater threat to humanity than organized crime or organized political tyranny.

Organized religion is responsible for more genocide, slavery and oppression than any political movement or authoritarian government.

If you find meaning in life by believing in a personal deity or by accepting the Bible or the Koran as the Word of God, it’s all good, just don’t share your personal revelation with anyone else.

Any organization with a deity as the ultimate power is inherently evil and will result in the enslavement and oppression of believers and unbelievers alike.

Religions claim to derive their power, authority and wisdom from God, and accusing them of the subjugation of women, demonization of gays and lesbians or oppression of minorities is tantamount to criticizing the Almighty.

Found Jesus? I’m happy for you, if you must share, do so only with family members and intimate friends. For God’s sake, don’t join a megachurch or any church for that matter. The more organized a church, the more equipped it is to do evil.

We all need to fellowship with people who share our interests and hobbies. Become a member of a gym, join a book club or attend a sporting event, just don’t let religion be what brings you together with other people.

Organized religion is anathema.  

‘Creepy Weirdo’ Steve Cortes Fixated on Feet of AOC’s Boyfriend

New York Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) vacationed in Florida with her boyfriend.

A New York liberal vacationing in the red state of Florida didn’t sit too well with Steve Cortes, a rightwing commentator who was too extreme for Newsmax. They sacked him for vocally opposing their policy requiring employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

Cortes posted a photo on Twitter of AOC and her boyfriend on vacation in the Sunshine State. The two were pictured at a table with drinks, and neither of them were wearing masks.

His photo included the following snarky comments:

“If Leftists like AOC actually thought mandates and masking worked, they wouldn’t be frolicking in free FL.” He gratuitously referred to her boyfriend’s “gross pale male feet” and “hideous sandals.”

AOC quoted Cortes’ tweet with a reply. “If Republicans are mad they can’t date me they can just say that instead of projecting their sexual frustrations onto my boyfriend’s feet,” she wrote. “Ya creepy weirdos.”

“Creepy weirdo” perfectly describes the physical and psychological essence of Cortes, in high school he was the socially-awkward boy who stood in the outskirts of the dance floor criticizing the shoes of his more popular classmates.

Why is Cortes infatuated with the feet of AOC’s boyfriend? Was he checking out his feet, in the belief that the size of a man’s feet reflects the size of his penis? Is Cortes a repressed gay man like many of his anti-gay Republican colleagues? It’s 2022 come out of the freaking closet, you creepy weirdo!

And of course, they weren’t wearing masks, they were drinking you stupid creepy weirdo!
