BLP reported on HR 8’s passage on February 26, 2019 which was the most significant piece of gun control passed in either chamber of the U.S. Congress since the passage of the Brady Act in the 1990s.

Under H.R. 8, millions of private gun sales and transfers could potentially be criminalized. Prospective buyers would have to pass a background check just like buyers who go to a store to purchase guns.

The problem with calls for more gun control is that the Virginia Beach shooter, DeWayne Craddock acquired the .45 handgun he used to commit this heinous act legally. In other words, he had to pass the mandatory NICS background check. On top of that, this shooting was committed in a gun-free zone according to a report from the Crime Research Prevention Center.

On top of that, H.R. 8 looks to be dead in the water due to Republican control of the U.S. Senate.

However, this will not faze the anti-gun Left, who use these shootings as a way to further their anti-gun agenda.

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.
