On May 7, 2020, Mayor London Breed revealed a plan to lease out hotel rooms for a number of inmates who would been homeless had they been released from jail and left on their own.
About 51 people who are either waiting to go on trial or who have been given the go ahead to be let out of jail will receive a room under a joint partnership involving the Adult Probation Department, the San Francisco Pretrial Diversion Project, and other entities.
San Francisco has recently used vacant hotel rooms to house vulnerable segments of the city’s population during the Wuhan virus pandemic and allegedly curtail the spread of the Wuhan virus.
“We’ve moved over 1,100 people into hotels and we’re continuing to move more vulnerable and homeless residents into these rooms every day,” Breed remarked in a statement. “This is yet another innovative effort to respond to these unprecedented circumstances.”
Criminal justice reformers have obsessed about inmates during this pandemic and are afraid that that the virus could spread in jails.
According to the San Francisco Examiner, Chief Adult Probation Officer Karen Fletcher revealed in a statement that the criminals will have “access to case management, supportive services and basic necessities including food, clothing and hygiene kits.”
“The program provides a platform for change with a shared vision that focuses on client needs and supports their success, while ensuring public safety,” Fletcher remarked.
Cities like San Francisco would rather promote social dysfunction as opposed to finding common sense ways to combat the virus while preserving civil liberties and maintaining public order.
This is par for the course for the modern-day Left, which is exploiting this virus for political gain. In neighboring San Jose, the local government attacked the right to bear arms by issuing a shutdown order on gun stores.
The Wuhan virus saga is showing Americans which jurisdictions actually care about preserving freedoms and which ones want to engage in tyrannical social experiments.
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.
