Another user, Darren of Plymouth, commented “There have been anti-lockdown protests today in Berlin. Don’t expect to see this on the BBC tonight, just more Death, PPE. and Boris Bashing.#TurnOffTheTv

In another video, a protester was carried away by Berlin police, which another user highlighted:

“In the middle of Berlin another Saturday protest is underway against the lockdown measures introduced – and slowly being lifted – by the Germany government. #COVID19 One of the protestors was just carried away by police officers”

International news video agency Ruptly posted a video on Twitter of protesters at the Polish-German border. “Crowds gather at German-Polish border in #Zgorzelec to protest #coronavirus lockdown #Poland #Goerlitz

Euronews reported that “More than 100 people were on Saturday arrested by German police for flouting the coronavirus lockdown measures they were protesting against.”

A high-profile protest took place at Berlin’s Rosa Luxemburg square where demonstrators voiced their grievances against the Wuhan virus lockdown measures that the German government has implemented.

On the protest organizer’s website there was a demand for the government to put “an end to the state of emergency.”

In a statement, police claimed that it repeatedly asked protesters to comply with social distancing rules but was then compelled to bring in reinforcements when protesters ignored their requests.

“A total of 105 people were identified and administrative offenses and criminal proceedings for violations of the containment measures in connection with the Infection Protection Act were initiated,” the police statement read.

According to the Robert Koch Institute, Germany has 152,438 confirmed cases of the Wuhan virus and 5,500 deaths.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

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.
