WHITEWASH: Charleston City Council Unanimously Voted to Take Down John C. Calhoun Monument

Published

on

On June 23, 2020, the Charleston City Council unanimously voted on a resolution authorizing the removal of the statue and monument dedicated to John C. Calhoun, a 19th century South Carolina politician and one of the greatest statesmen in American history.

Per the resolution, the statue and monument will be relocated to a museum or academic institution at a later date.

“When I was approached with the idea of moving the statue from Marion Square, I was very concerned, because I know people on both sides are very passionate,” Council member Kevin Shealy stated. “But I believe the statue can be relocated to a place where it can be safely displayed for those who choose to visit it, and I believe we should move it there. I just believe it’s the best solution and the best compromise.”

City leaders voted for the resolution in response to multiple days of protests in front of the statue, which is located in Charleston’s Marion Square. Agitators ended up vandalizing the monument after Charleston mayor John Tecklenburg announced his decision to move forward with this resolution on June 18. This incident led to 9 arrests of individuals who were charged with property destruction.

“For those of you who did harm to our city, you’ve accomplished nothing here, other than adding to your criminal record” Shealy declared in a speech. “This has nothing to do with you. You’re not the reason for my decision tonight. … I’m going to support relocating the Calhoun statue, because it’s a wedge that’s splitting us apart. I support this … for hundreds of Black leaders who’ve made our city better every day. … My hope and prayer is that everyone will come together in Charleston. That’s why I’m making this decision.”

Calhoun served as a Congressman, Senator, Secretary of War, Secretary of State, and Vice President throughout his political career. He was a staunch defender of preserving states’ rights and an advocate of nullification of unconstitutional laws passed at the federal level.

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.
