Greg Abbott Attempts Damage Control, Feigns Outrage Against Enforcement of *His Own* Order

Published

Governor Greg Abbott is angry about activist politicians in Texas who seek to undermine the state and persecute law-abiding Texas during a time of a pandemic. However, Abbott should also be angry at himself for signing the very executive order that enables the imprisonment of Texans who dare to make a living by keeping their stores open.

Nonetheless, Abbott is beginning to recognize the error of his ways.

In the middle of this chaos, politicians  also want to let thousands of criminals loose.

On April 7, 2020, Abbott tweeted, “Throwing Texans in jail whose biz’s shut down through no fault of their own is wrong.I am eliminating jail for violating an order, retroactive to April 2, superseding local orders. Criminals shouldn’t be released to prevent COVID-19 just to put business owners in their place.”

Soon, the Texas Supreme Court ordered the release of Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was unjustly incarcerated for keeping her store open.

Abbott subsequently issued an executive order that banned incarceration as a punishment for violating a shelter order.

Texas has maintained a level-headed approach to the Wuhan virus pandemic for the most part.

It has protected gun rights by declaring gun stores as “essential” and rolling out a gradual re-opening of the economy.

However, Abbott caved in to leftist pressure by implementing a shelter order. This was a big mistake and has hurt countless small businesses in the state.

Hopefully, the Lone Star states takes it to another level by pursuing a bold re-opening plan and not look back.

There is no need to destroy people’s economic livelihoods for a virus that can be handled through common sense public-private partnerships that don’t infringe on people’s liberties.

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.
