Viral 'You Have Lost Your Ever-Lovin' Mind': Pastor Rails Against Target's Bathroom Policy
One Tennessee pastor had some sharp words for Target, after the corporation announced a new policy that would allow transgender people to use the bathroom that they say corresponds with their gender identity.
Close to a million people have now signed a pledge to boycott Target stores – and Pastor Greg Locke, for one, says Target is “being ignorantly, ignorantly naïve.”
“You have lost your ever-lovin’ mind,” Locke declared, in a video that took no time to go viral.
“Your political correctness has caused you to do something extraordinarily stupid. You know why? Because you’re not ‘targeting’ and being inclusive to transgender people by doing this,” he said.
“They make up 0.3 percent of the population. What you are targeting are perverts. Pedophiles. People who are going to harm our children.”
Pastor Locke, in the clip above, joined Neil Cavuto to explain his side.
Since the video, he has been getting “a lot of vitriolic hate mail from the LGBT community,” he said.
“This is just a common sense issue, and I don’t understand why it’s such a big deal,” added the father of four.
“We have raised a generation of people that believe that morals and convictions and values equal bigotry and discrimination. And I think that is a great injustice in the day in which we live.”
