Rally sparks religious controversy

Jan. 24—When the ReAwaken America Tour made its Nashville stop in Mt. Juliet over the weekend, the event sparked controversy amongst Middle Tennessee's religious leaders.

The discourse not only centered around the event itself, but also on its venue — Global Vision Bible Church.

Located on Old Lebanon Dirt Road, the church and its pastor, Greg Locke, have been the subject of scrutiny for years. Noise complaints and petitions have been filed against the church, and Middle Tennessee religious leaders held a press conference on Friday admonishing the ReAwaken America Tour and the Global Vision Bible Church's teachings.
