Most of us who grew up seeing Westboro Baptist Church protest at funerals were disgusted by it.
Pastor Greg Locke was apparently jealous.
The Tennessee preacher was jealous of the attention and notoriety. That would at least explain why he’s flouting social distancing rules, protesting lockdown orders, and posting one inflammatory video after another.
But Seth Andrews — who’s normally as calm and even-keeled as anyone — just posted this “open letter” to Locke in which he just goes off on Locke for his constant martyrbating.
That had to feel good to make. That felt good to watch. I mean, I’m still angry about everything, but that was a brief respite from the drama and chaos caused by Christian fundamentalists who arrogantly and mistakenly think public health is nothing more than an attempt to stifle their practice of religion.
