Trailer full of Bibles set on fire outside conservative pastor Greg Locke's Tennessee church on Easter Sunday
· Mar 31, 2024 ·

Someone actually bought a bunch of Bibles and a trailer just to set them on fire outside a church. What must it feel like to have that much hate?

The Wilson County Sheriff's Office said deputies responded to a fire at Old Lebanon Dirt Road and Chandler Road around 6 a.m. Sunday. Mt. Juliet Fire Department crews quickly contained and extinguished the trailer fire.

The trailer, containing Bibles, had been dropped off in the middle of the intersection near Global Vision Bible Church and then was intentionally set on fire, according to police.

The charismatic Baptist church's pastor, Greg Locke, is outspoken about his conservative political beliefs and has been featured by conservative outlets like The Blaze.

No other details were immediately released.

Anyone with additional information and/or camera footage is urged to contact the Wilson County Sheriff's Office at 615-444-1459.

Some comments from the department's Facebook post:

And here was the response from Locke:

Whenever someone burns Bibles to get attention, I always ask them this question:

Why don't you do that to the Quran?
