Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced on Monday, March 9, 2020 that the government has broadened internal travel restrictions to the entire country until April 3.
The country’s northern region was initially locked down in an attempt to keep the coronavirus from spreading even further.
In doing so, Conte’s measure has led to a lockdown of 6o million people in one of Europe’s most populated countries. Italy is the country with the highest number of people testing positive for the coronavirus outside of China. Additionally, Conte revealed that all public gatherings and sporting events would be prohibited.
As of Sunday, March 8, 2020, 9,000 people tested positive for the coronavirus in Italy, with more than 450 people dying from the complication. This development compelled Italian authorities to act.
Italy initially imposed travel restrictions on the Lombardy region in addition to the 14 other northern provinces this past weekend.
According to Conte, the new decree would go into effect on Tuesday, March 10, 2020 and it is designed to protect Italy’s most vulnerable. The Italian leader advised his citizens to stay home and avoid traveling unless it’s an emergency.
Thanks to the influence of Italian populist Matteo Salvini, Italian political leaders have been forced to take nationalist positions once he left office.
Europe’s open borders social experiment has already brought about devastating social results.The current coronavirus health crisis presents another dangerous flaw of open borders as freely flowing people increases the chances that certain regional illnesses become global in nature.
Unlike most of Europe, Italy gets it. Hopefully, the U.S. takes a page from the Italian playbook and considers shutting down its Southern border in order to reassert its sovereignty and protect its citizens from this global virus outbreak.
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.

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.
