Tonight in his live address to the Nation from the Oval Office, President Donald Trump highlighted his administration’s past actions which limited American exposure to the Conora Virus, as well as delivering a very bold plan to keep further development from happening on American soil.
“Today the World Health Organization officially announced that this is a global pandemic.
We have been in frequent contact with our allies and we are marshaling the full power of the federal government and the private sector to protect the American people.
This is the most aggressive and comprehensive effort to confront a foreign virus in modern history”, said the President.
“It only matters how you respond and we are responding with great speed and professionalism”, he went on to say.
Then the President then laid out his plan to contain any more outbreaks in the United States; which included a European travel ban for thirty days and federal financial relief for those affected by the announced epidemic:
“The European Union failed to take the same precautions and restrict travel from China and other hotspots. As a result a large number of new clusters in the United States were seeded by travelers from Europe.
After consulting with our government’s top health professionals I have decided to several strong but necessary actions to protect the health and well being of all Americans.
To keep new cases from entering our shores we will be suspending all travel from Europe to the United States for the next thirty days. The new rules will go into effect Friday at midnight. These restrictions will not apply to the United Kingdom…
We will soon be taken emergency action which is unprecedented to provide financial relief. This will be targeted for workers who are ill, quarantined, or those caring for others due to Corona Virus. I will be asking Congress to take legislative action to extend this relief.”
The President finished his remarks by saying, “The virus will not have a chance against us. No nation is more prepared, or more resilient than the United States. We have the best economy, the most advanced healthcare, and the most talented doctors, scientists, and researchers in the anywhere in the world.
We are all in this together. We must put politics aside, stop the partisanship, and unify together as one nation, and one family. As history has proven time and time again Americans always rise to the challenge and overcome adversity.
Our future remains brighter than anyone can imagine. Acting with compassion and love we will heal the sick, care for those in need, help our fellow citizens, and emerge from this challenge stronger and more unified than ever before. God bless you and God bless America.”
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.
