Three NRA Board Members Resign Citing Leadership Incompetence

Published

on

Three members of the National Rifle Association’s board resigned on Thursday August 1, 2019.

Concerns about fiscal impropriety and mismanagement motivated the board members to resign from the organization.

The three board members — Esther Schneider of Texas, Sean Maloney of Ohio and Timothy Knight of Tennessee — claimed that they were stripped of their committee assignments after they questioned NRA CEO Wayne LaPierre’s spending habits.

BLP reported on concerns about LaPierre’s lavish spending a few months ago, which has drawn considerable criticism from members of the gun rights community.

In a letter to the NRA, the former board members wrote “While our belief in the NRA’s mission remains as strong today as ever, our confidence in the NRA’s leadership has been shattered.”

NRA President Carolyn D. Meadows said in a statement that the gun rights organization accepts the reisgnations.

She said “We look forward to working with our new board members in furthering our noble mission of protecting our Second Amendment rights on behalf of our millions of members.”

Things are not going so well in NRA land. NRA President Oliver North stepped down after voicing his concern about the group’s finances and the NRA’s chief lobbying Chris Cox resigned after he was accused of allegedly participating in an extortion scheme to oust LaPierre.

BLP reported that the NRA is also facing a political witch hunt in New York from the state’s Attorney General, who is demanding that the organization disclose financial records.

Even gun rights activists are disenchanted with the NRA’s recent management structure, with some like David Codrea calling on LaPierre to resign.

BLP interviewed Aaron Dorr, the Vice President of Political Operations for the newly formed American Firearms Coalition, who questioned the NRA’s leadership on the issue of gun rights and believes they have been ineffective in defending said rights.

All in all, things do not look well for the NRA at the moment.

Some of the criticism of the NRA is valid due its inability in curtailing decades worth of gun control infringements at the federal and state level.

It remains to be seen if the NRA will survive from this fallout.

Nevertheless, its reputation among gun owners is now tarnished, and there’s no telling how low far this decline will go.

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.
