Mt. Juliet Church Pastor Says Vandalism Likely Happened Because Roger Stone Will Speak There


Mt. Juliet’s Global Vision Bible Church was vandalized, possibly because Roger Stone is to speak on Sunday, Aug. 30, WSMV said.

Pastor Greg Locke on Sunday posted photos of the damage, available here. The church shared his post on its Facebook page, available here.

One graffiti tag read, “Locke & Stone will burn in h***.” Another tag read, “Fascists beware.”

Locke wrote, “Just got word from our staff that our building, tent, chairs, church sign and my pulpit were all vandalized last night. Headed there now. Police are on the way. SERVICE WILL NOT BE STOPPED. See y’all at 10:30.”


A number of people posted statements of support for Locke and Global Vision.

Roger Stone is scheduled to appear next week.

One person posted, “Loved your sermon this morning in spite of them trying to disway you.”

President Donald Trump in July commuted the sentence of his longtime political confidant Roger Stone just days before he was set to report to prison, the Associated Press reported. Stone had been sentenced to three years and four months on counts of lying to Congress, witness tampering and obstructing the House investigation into whether the campaign colluded with Russia in the 2016 election.

FOX 17 News says Locke told the station that he has been invited to attend President Trump’s nomination at the Republican National Convention.

The Wilson County Sheriff’s Office told the TV station that no one had forced entry into the church. Deputies will conduct extra patrols.
