New York Senator and 2020 presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand wants to purge the Democratic Party of pro-lifers.
Gillibrand argues that the party has no room for lukewarm abortion supporters.
The New York Senator said that talking point of keeping abortion “safe, legal, and rare” is outdated and being pro-abortion is non-negotiable. In an interview with the Washington Post, Gillibrand called out anti-abortion bills moving across the nation.
Gillibrand told the Washington Post that “As a party, we should be 100 percent pro-choice, and it should be non-negotiable.” She added, “We should not settle for less, and if our party cannot support women’s basic human rights, their fundamental freedoms to make decisions about their bodies and their futures, then we are not the party of women …”I will not compromise on women’s reproductive freedom.”
The protection of Roe v. Wade has been a central part of her presidential campaign platform. According to Politico, she released a pledge with a plan to enshrine Roe vs. Wade protections into law, should she become president.
Like gun control, abortion has become a wedge issue that Democrats have become progressively more radical on during the past few decades. Now Democrats are showing their true colors as they have moved leftward and taken extreme stances on issues like abortion. The recent passage of Alabama’s pro-life bill will make abortion one of the hottest issues in the 2020 elections.
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.
