“It’s what we have to do to save lives,” Cooper said during a 4 p.m. news conference.

As of Friday, the state has recorded 763 cases of coronavirus in at least 60 counties. Three deaths have taken place in the state so far.

“North Carolina is now considered by the Centers for Disease Control to have widespread transmission,” Cooper declared. “Because no one is immune, because there is no vaccination, the best scientifically proven tool we have to slow the spread is to keep our distance.”

Cooper acknowledged that the order will cause increased hardships for many of the state’s workers.

The governor announced that the first round of unemployment benefits in North Carolina will be going out in the next week.

The governor’s executive order came in the wake of a Dare County announcement earlier on Friday which ordered a stay-home order starting at 5 p.m. Saturday.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

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.
