Some pastors spend Mother’s Day gushing over the moms in the congregation or preaching about women in the Bible.
Christian Hate-Preacher Greg Locke, who’s spent much of the past year hosting precaution-free services for his congregation in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee, chose a different approach. He spent his morning calling Pope Francis a pedophile.
What kind of Mother's Day sermon does one hear at right-wing pastor Greg Locke's church? One in which he attacks President Biden and calls the Pope "the biggest pedophile on the planet," naturally. pic.twitter.com/iyYCo41pYd

… I got three letters in the mail just the other day. Not a one of them had a return address. Not a one of them. And all three of them were castigating me because they said “We want you to know that Joe Biden is an honorable man! Joe Biden is a practicing Catholic!”
So is the pope, but he’s the biggest pedophile on the planet! Say “Amen” right there!
You tell ol’ John-boy I said so!
I don’t know who “John-boy” is. (John Paul II? The pope who died more than 15 years ago?) There’s also no way three people are sending him hand-written letters defending Biden’s Catholicism. I want to see those letters. Also, Locke is just plain wrong. The pope isn’t a pedophile; he merely helps cover up pedophilia.
But leave it to a hate-preacher to call someone a pedophile, only to follow it up with Can I get an “Amen”?
Meanwhile, Locke had nothing to say about Josh Duggar, who molested his younger sisters many years ago and is currently accused of downloading illicit material involving children. Nor did Locke go after Rep. Matt Gaetz, who’s accused of sex trafficking. That’s not surprising given that Duggar and Gaetz share Locke’s bigoted views.
But if you’re looking for logical consistency, you’re not going to find it at Locke’s church.
Happy Mother’s Day, I guess.
