Published

The man responsible for killing Texas’ Constitutional Carry bill in 2019, — Texas House Speaker Dennis Bonnen —announced on Tuesday, October 23, 2019 that he will not be running for election in 2020.

As Texas Gun Rights reported in an email update, Bonnen is “laying the Speaker’s gavel down in disgrace and slamming the door shut on a 22-year career in the Austin swamp.”

Bonnen was caught in the middle of a backroom deal where he promised to give media credentials to Empower Texans CEO Michael Quinn Sullivan and his staff in exchange for attacking several House Republicans.

News of this encounter caused tremendous chatter at the state capitol and the recording was eventually made public.

The fallout was tremendous and Bonnen could no longer take the heat.

However, Texas Gun Rights reminded its members in an email that Bonnen’s refusal to run for re-election “all started because the Republican Speaker picked a fight with TXGR and the Second Amendment.”

When Bonnen decided to go after Texas Gun Rights Executive Director Chris McNutt for peacefully canvassing in his neighborhood, it became clear that he was in for a fight.

Texas Gun Rights responded accordingly by turning up the pressure on Bonnen through its email and social media campaigns.

Bonnen tried to sully McNutt’s reputation in the media, but the no compromise lobby did not let up in attacking him.

The House Speaker even threw a public fit when he confronted McNutt in person at a Texas Republican meeting.

Texas Gun Rights then filed a lawsuit to defend McNutt’s image from Bonnen’s vicious attacks.

Conservatives throughout Texas started to take notice of Bonnen’s actions and demanded some degree of accountability.

After all, the 2019 legislative session was seen as a disappointment by conservatives across the state for not addressing key issues such as abortion, gun rights, or property taxes.

The meeting that Quinn Sullivan scheduled with Bonnen proved to be fateful as he caught Bonnen and his lieutenant Dustin Burrows via recording trying to buy off his group.

By releasing the recording of this incident, the Empower Texans CEO was able to seal Bonnen’s fate by exposing him as another wheeling and dealing politician. GOP leaders across the state called for Bonnen to step down from his position.

For gun owners across the state, Bonnen being out of the picture will make it easier to move pro-gun legislation like Constitutional Carry.

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.

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.
