Off Point: CRTV Partners with Disgraced Pastor Greg Locke
One of the newer players in the conservative media marketplace is CRTV. The online subscription service (it’s basically Fox News for millennials) has made a name for itself by providing no-nonsense, right-leaning news commentary and features popular figures such as Steve Deace, Allie Beth Stuckey, Mark Levin, and Phil Robertson. CRTV now also features disgraced pastor Greg Locke.
Locke is well-known for his politically incorrect social media rants about politics and religion. Readers of Pulpit & Pen will recognize Locke as the foul-mouthed, spouse-abusing small-time Tennessee pastor who notoriously divorced his wife of two decades and quickly married his secretary. Despite his biblical infidelity, Locke retained his position as pastor of Global Vision Bible Church, which he founded himself.
He now finds himself with a bigger platform on CRTV, where he is featured on a show entitled “On Point”. One must now wonder if the management of CRTV, in partnering with such a scoundrel, has any true concern for biblical family values. Christians should think twice before subscribing to and sharing CRTV resources, lest they participate in publicizing and providing this platform for an unqualified t-shirt-hawking “pastor” in desperate need of repentance, more accountability, and less visibility.
