After a protest took place in Downtown Buffalo on May 30, 2020, Reverend Mark Blue, President of the Buffalo branch of the NAACP, declared that it is time for police to change their policies.
This call for police reform came after a Minneapolis police officer suffocated George Floyd on May 25, 2020.
Blue reported that the NAACP has established a list of reforms that law enforcement must implement.
“We would like a ban on the use of knee-holds and chokeholds as an acceptable practice for police officers”, the online petition read.
The petition also called for better de-escalation training. Many advocates of police reform believe that this kind of training can help officers defuse certain confrontations with citizens.
“We also want the state to open up records of officers that have had misconducts and disciplinary history,” Blue declared. The proposal was also recently floated by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.
“We want recertification of credentials…(to be)…denied for police officers if determined their use of deadly force was unwarranted by federal guidelines.”
In the petition, there was also a demand for Citizen’s Review Boards in municipalities as a means of holding police departments accountable and building “public confidence.”
These demands are reasonable and are a stark contrast from the radical Left which wants to abolish the police and render them completely ineffective. Such demands would lead to a complete breakdown of public order in the U.S.
Ideally, these kinds of policies would be free from federal and globalist micromanagement.
No matter how hysterical people get, there are reasonable ways to solve these problems.
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.
