Oklahoma State Senator Nathan Dahm wants to put a stop to sanctuary city policies in Oklahoma.
According to a report from Fox 25, Dahm filed Senate Bill 1459, which would ban any municipality in Oklahoma from implementing sanctuary city policies.
These policies protect illegal aliens from facing federal prosecution.
Under Dahm’s bill, any city or town that institutes sanctuary policies would not be eligible for state funding via agencies and grants.
“In the past, we have had cities say they would willingly violate federal immigration laws by declaring their cities a sanctuary for those law-breaking foreigners,” Dahm stated. “Senate Bill 1459 says no such sanctuary policy can be implemented in our state, and any government entity that violates these laws would be subject to loss of funds until they uphold the law.”
Sanctuary policies also bar municipality officers from verifying or reporting the immigration status of any illegal alien within the municipality to federal agencies or officials.
On top of that, sanctuary policies grant illegal aliens the right to legally reside in a municipality in clear violation of federal law and prevent law enforcement officers from inquiring about an individual’s citizenship or immigration status.
SB 1459 authorizes legislators to request a legal opinion from the Attorney General’s office when they receive a complaint about a municipality violating federal immigration laws.
If funding is cut off for a city under the bill, the Attorney General would have to determine if the city is following the law in order to restore funding.
Through his legislative action, Oklahoma Senator has quickly become a friend of gun owners and those who believe in limited government.
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.
