The man who filmed the hotly controversial February confrontation between Travis and Gregory McMichael and Ahmaud Arbery was arrested and charged with murder and attempted false imprisonment on Thursday. William Bryan filmed the altercation between the McMichaels and Arbery in Brunswick, Georgia, which proved fatal for the latter.

Lawyers for Arbery’s parents had been calling for the arrest of Bryan, who drove behind the McMichaels as they boxed off Arbery and attempted to place him under a citizen’s arrest. The Georgia men had suspected Arbery of involvement in several burglaries in Brunswick, although they hadn’t witnessed him engaging in crimes firsthand; Arbery’s advocates maintain that he was accosted by reckless, armed vigilantes.

An attorney for Bryan is pointing to a polygraphs he says his client took exonerating him of any involvement in the shooting. Bryan claims to have been unarmed at the time of the shooting, and didn’t have any conversation with Travis or Gregory McMichael before the event.

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.
