Tennessee pastor Greg Locke last week filmed a nearly 2 minute-long rant on YouTube complaining that he received a thank-you card from Planned Parenthood, an organization he claimed “killed more innocent people other than radical Islam,” according to a report at Daily Kos.
“So today in the mail I got a very shocking and very interesting card,” Locke said in the video. “It came from Planned Parenthood, which is a very strange organization to be sending me anything at all because everyone knows my very bold and biblical stand against them.”
“But here’s what’s interesting. Here’s what the card said. ‘Dear Greg Locke. Planned Parenthood Federation of America is pleased to let you know that a generous and thoughtful donation has been made in your honor by’ and then apparently the hater’s name was Christa Ginsberg in Houston, Texas. And it doesn’t say how much it was and then sincerely, you know, the Richards lady that runs Planned Parenthood,” he continued.
“At the end of the day … it was an absolute waste of your money,” Locke argued. “And the stamp was an absolute waste of your money as well.”
The pastor then raged against the organization, which serves 2.5 million men and women per year.
“Don’t ever send me anymore nonsense from Planned Parenthood,” Locke demanded. “There has never been another organization in the world that killed more innocent people other than radical Islam than that of Planned Parenthood.”
“Planned Parenthood does not give the flip of a wooden nickel about women’s healthcare,” he charged. “It’s a bunch of deceptive individuals that are in it for the money that have been known to sell baby parts on the black market.”
“I don’t want my name associated with this wicked mess,” he continued. “Ya’ll can keep butchering babies, I’m going to keep speaking the truth.”
In response to the video, Los Angeles local Danny McNamara started a GoFundMe page to raise money for Planned Parenthood under Locke’s name. You can donate here.

Iran probes seized UK-flagged tanker — Britain to hold emergency meeting
ran warned Sunday that the fate of a UK-flagged tanker it seized in the Gulf depends on an investigation, as Britain prepared for an emergency security meeting on Tehran's action.
Iranian authorities impounded the Stena Impero with 23 crew members aboard off the port of Bandar Abbas after the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps seized it Friday in the highly sensitive Strait of Hormuz.
Video footage released by Iran showed the Stena Impero tanker being surrounded by speedboats before troops in balaclavas descend a rope from a helicopter onto the vessel.
In an audio recording of a radio exchange, an Iranian officer can be heard ordering the tanker to change course "immediately".
For Cubans — a day at the beach is no easy task
Cuba's constitution guarantees its people access to its beaches, but many locals are unable to enjoy the island's pristine white sands and crystal clear blue waters.
While foreign tourists flock to such paradisiacal Havana sites as Varadero, which was this year named the second most-beautiful beach in the world by American travel website TripAdvisor, Cubans are typically found elsewhere.
"Not many tourists come here," said 43-year-old Rey Gonzalez, who was enjoying a day at Guanabo, a beach east of the capital.
Guanabo's sand isn't as white and the water not quite as clear as Varadero's, but that mattered little to Gonzalez, who was there with his family.
