The owner of a Massachusetts ice cream shop closed up his business just after one day of reopening during the Wuhan virus pandemic.

Lawrence was anticipating reopening his shop in accordance to the state’s restaurant guidelines on Mother’s Day weekend.

Lawrence told FOX25 Boston that customers grew frustrated with the longer wait times for the ice cream and started taking out their frustration on his staff.

“One of my best workers quit yesterday at the end of her shift,” he commented. “But the words she was called and the language, you wouldn’t even say in a men’s locker room. And to say it to a 17-year-old kid, they should be ashamed of themselves.”

According to a new plan to keep customers and employees safe, Lawrence announced that he posted on the shop’s Facebook page that all orders must be placed an hour beforehand. However, many customers didn’t abide by the new guidelines, according to Lawrence. In addition, they became rowdy.

“People have forgotten how to treat other human beings in the six or seven weeks that they’ve been confined to their homes,” Lawrence commented. “They have no clue how to respect other human beings.”

Lawrence said he will close the store’s doors until he comes up with a new operating plan.

In the hours after Lawrence’s decision to close, the rest of the community sent him hundreds of messages of support.

“I was very impressed by how your staff stayed patient and kind,” one user wrote. “You guys were doing everything you could and I do not blame you for not reopening. Know there are plenty here that will support you and accept your service however we can get it.”

The parlor filled limited orders on April 9, which Lawrence statd “was a vastly improved operation” in an update on the shop’s Facebook page. He said customers “followed the rules and it worked,” with orders being placed over an hour beforehand, and some were even placed a day before.

“We will continue to tweak our efforts and eventually try again to open full speed ahead,” Lawrence posted on Facebook. “Thank you for the incredible outpouring of love and support from so many. It truly means so much to me at this time.”

Under Governor Charlie Baker’s stay-at-home order, restaurants have been allowed to offer take-out services while dine-in services are temporarily shut down in order to contain the spread of the Wuhan virus.

Non-essential business shutdowns and the stay-at-home order are staying in place until at least May 18.

The real culprit behind such situations are state governments, which have made small businessmen from gun store owners to salon owners miserable.

Because of the shutdown orders many businesses have had to close up shop or radically alter their business models.

Let’s hope that lawmakers exercise some sanity soon. The country cannot take shutdowns for any longer.

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.
