Over $200,000 Raised for Heroic Salon Owner in Texas After She is Given Jail Time and Fines for Opening Her Business

Published

on

Dallas area salon owner Shelley Luther became famous by breaking Texas’s shelter order in late April.

Like many small business owners, she had to make ends meet and could not afford the luxury of a prolonged shutdown.

She would then receive a citation from the city of Dallas. Her case gained widespread coverage and she would later be invited to a rally protesting the closures.

At the rally, Luther expressed her desire to keep her business afloat and also wants the rest of the Texas economy to continue running.  She said before the crowd, “We have a right to run a business and feed our children.”

Luther then took out her citation and ripped it up in front of the crowd, which drew massive cheers from the crowd.
“You’re our Rosa Parks,” a woman yelled from the crowd as Shelley Luther took the stage.

 

On May 5, 2020, Luther received a 7-day jail sentence and was fined $7,000. The salon owner refused to apologize to the judge for her decision to open the business.

Essentially, local busybodies want to castigate Shelley for the grievous crime of trying to sustain herself and family.

On the night of May 5,a  GoFundMe page was set up to raise money for Shelley Luther and her business.

As of May 6, over $260,000 has been raised for Luther and her family.

The Texas state government has done a solid job by protecting the right to bear arms by declaring gun stores essential.

However, the government has been lackluster in its efforts to re-open the economy.

Governor Greg Abbott must take action, lest he wants people like Luther to continue to economically suffer.

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.
