According to CBS SF BAYArea, “All three properties have one thing in common. They’re big and have multiple units, but many of those units are currently occupied by tenants.”
“I’m sure the tenants have been asked to leave,” Allen Thomas commented. He lives close to one of the three properties, 811 Davis Street in Santa Rosa.
Neighbors said it’s a bad idea to evict renters to house the homeless.
“It’s just insanity,” declared Karen Sanders, who also resides in Santa Rosa.
Sonoma County leaders have plans on buying two properties in Santa Rosa and one in Cotati. They are expected to pay approximately one million dollars for each property. One county worker noted that they’re already contracted to buy property on Davis Street.
“Million dollar homes; million dollar homes for these transients living on the trail,” Sanders stated.
The county wants to clear the Joe Rodota Trail of the homeless. Many neighbors where those three properties are located worry that the new neighbors could potentially make the neighborhoods less safe and reduce the overall quality of life.
“I’m not NIMBY, but we’ve done enough,” declared Sher Ennis, a neighbor who lives close the Davis street property.
Davis claims a man from a re-entry housing program attacked her home a few years ago. She is concerned about her safety.
“We don’t know. Are we getting dangerous criminals? Are we getting felons? Or are we getting people who are simply down on their luck,” said Ennis.
However, another neighbor is in favor of the county’s plan.
“I don’t think that it makes [the neighborhood] any less safe, no,” said Andrew Atkinson.
He believes that the county must take immediate action
“It’s going to take more than this, I think, to solve the problem. But I’m glad to see they’re trying,” said Atkinson.
Many upset neighbors have plans to express their concerns at a community meeting Friday night in Santa Rosa.
County leaders plan on discussing about the plan to buy the houses and other housing alternatives in dealing with the homeless.
Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting
They say they’re not changing their name.
The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.
To correct multiple inaccurate reports, “We Are Great Commission Baptists” is the 2021 Annual Meeting THEME.
The GCB descriptor was approved in 2012 for churches to use if it would be helpful in their local context.
The Southern Baptist Convention remains our official name.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.
Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.
The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.
The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.
It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
