The Texas Director of Operations for Gun Owners of America Teresa Beckmeyer reported on the Texas border county of Presidio declaring itself a Second Amendment sanctuary on Wednesday July 10, 2019.
At the Commissioner’s Court, over sixty citizens presented this resolution to a standing room crowd.
Six individuals spoke out in favor of this pro-gun resolution. No one came out in opposition.
The last speaker asked for a show of hands of those in support of this resolution. All those present raised their hands and shouted “Hear, hear!”
In Presidio County, having gun rights is a matter of basic survival for those living close to the Southern border. Beckmeyer noted this:
Some of those speaking were rancher’s wives who told of instances where they had encountered illegal aliens on their property and that without a weapon, they would have not been able to protect themselves should the need have presented itself.
Additionally, law enforcement is not very reliable in this area.
In this sparsely populated part of Texas, it can take law enforcement 45 minutes to an hour to reach the vicinity of a 911 call.
Other speakers noted how the federal government has overreached on gun rights and re-iterated that they have a constitutional right to defend themselves. No government, federal or state, can infringe on that.
The local sheriff also spoke before the court and crowd. Like other sheriffs across the country, he pledged his support for Presidio county citizen’s right to keep and bear arms.
After much discussion, the commissioners present at this gathering voiced their approval for the Second Amendment and the need to defend it at all times.
When the final vote came, all three commissioners and the judge in attendance voted for the resolution.
The gun rights sanctuary movement is arguably one of the fastest-growing nullification campaigns taking place in the nation.
When state governments fail to uphold gun rights, local entities must take matters into their own hands.
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.
— SBC Executive Committee (@SBCExecComm) September 17, 2020
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.
