Church renamed, new (correct) photo rejected by Niantic

I submitted a photo for a newly renamed church that is under new leadership.

The original name was "First Baptist Church of Newport" and the new name is "Cornerstone Baptist Church"

The photo is of the newly renamed church’s sign.

I have another edit coming through to change the name of the portal to match the new name of the church as well. I expect that one will be rejected too and I'll be right back here again.. but in any case, you can see the new sign and name of the church in Google Street View:,-81.0981855,3a,22.9y,301.03h,87.24t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1ssWdWuoiKefMUyMfix3MRxg!2e0!7i16384!8i8192

From the rejection email from Niantic:
