The world renowned entertainer Madonna declared on May 26, 2020 that “no one should be able to carry a gun,” above all, police officers. She made the comments in response to the controversial incident involving George Floyd former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin.
Chauvin had Floyd handcuffed and held him down on the ground by placing his knee on his neck causing him to suffocate.
Once news of Floyd’s death went viral, riots kicked off in Minneapolis and all over the nation.
“Watching this Cop suffocate George Floyd with his knee on his neck, handcuffed and helpless, crying for his life with his face in the street is the most sickening, heartbreaking thing ive seen in a long time,” Madonna commented on Instagram. “This Officer knew he was being filmed and murdered him with arrogance and Pride. This has to stop!!”
“Until we can overcome Racism in America— no one should be allowed to carry a gun. Most of all cops,” the celebrity stated. Madonna hoped that “senseless killings” stop happening. She concluded her post, “I pray to GOD it does one day.Until then—Fuck The Police!” Ok.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News noted that on June 13, 2019, Madonna released “God Control,” which had a depiction of mass shootings in the video. In an interview with the People magazine, she used the shooting in the video as a means of drawing “attention to a crisis that needs to be addressed.” She opined, “To me, this is the biggest problem in America right now.”
She said to Reuters, “When you think about the amount of people who have died, been killed, have been wounded, whose lives have been changed irrevocably because of the lack of gun control in America, it’s such a huge, huge problem. It’s pretty frightening, yes, it’s pretty scary.”
Madonna, like most of her counterparts on the cultural Left, enjoys virtue signaling and advancing leftist narratives.
It’s safe to say that the entertainment is a solid ally for the Left and has very few dissenting voices.
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.
