Greg Locke, the controversial Pro-Trump, anti-vaccine pastor, has been permanently banned from Twitter.

Locke announced his permanent suspension through a post on Facebook, statingL "Twitter just permanently suspended my account. Welcome to America."

In a Facebook Live video posted to his account, Locke claimed that he was the first pastor to be banned on Twitter and that his ban was an attack on Christians. Locke says he would sue Twitter for banning him and implored his fellow Christians to fight the liberal forces destroying America.

Locke is the lead pastor of Global Vision Bible Church, based in Mount Juliet, TN near Nashville. Locke initially made a name for himself in 2016 when the pastor posted a video claiming that Target's policies regarding transgender people using appropriate bathrooms would open the door for "perverts and pedophiles". Since then, Locke has been a vocal social media user, often commenting on faith, politics, and Pro-Trump politics.

In July, Locke informed his church that he would kick people out of his church if they wore masks. He also posted a sign outside of his outdoor church, stating that the campus is mask-free and that they celebrate "FAITH over FEAR." 

Locke also made news when he told his congregation, "Do not get vaccinated," and that only "crack-smoking, demon-possessed leftists" would believe that Joseph Biden is a legitimate president.
