UNPRECEDENTED: Trump will Become First President to Give a Speech at March for Life

Published

on

On Friday, January 24, 2020, President Donald Trump will be the first president to give a speech at one of the premier pro-life events in the country.

Trump is set to deliver an in-person speech at March for Life, a rally held annually in Washington, where pro-life activists gather to protest the legalization of abortion.

March for Life is 47 years old and has taken place every year since the landmark Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision which made abortion legal.

In 2019, Vice President Mike Pence made a surprise appearance at the rally before roughly 100,000 attendees.

The president also sent out a message of support for the cause to rally participants via live video.

Jeanne Mancini, president of the organizing group, praised the announcement in a statement, declaring Trump has remained loyal to the anti-abortion movement.

“From the appointment of pro-life judges and federal workers, to cutting taxpayer funding for abortions here and abroad, to calling for an end to late-term abortions, President Trump and his administration have been consistent champions for life and their support for the March for Life has been unwavering,” she stated. “We are grateful for all these pro-life accomplishments and look forward to gaining more victories for life in the future.”

This announcement was made on the anniversary of Roe.

Initially, the pro-life movement was skeptical of Trump’s anti-abortion credentials. However, his efforts to cut taxpayer funding for abortion and his calls for ending late-term abortion has won the pro-life movement over and they now view Trump as a champion for pro-life causes.

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.
