    I am not engaging in a political discussion in this thread, rather looking for some indication of the BB folk to their view and use of current events as it relates to their work.

    Perhaps there are those who view current events in a different light than the questions asked in the poll.

    Because there is a ten item limit, I couldn't keep a third option on the last two. :(

    I neglected to post that a person can vote for more than one choice.

    I use current events often as an illustration or introduction to sermons. Jesus did in Luke 13.

    I never did see a poll.

    Current events are usable as points taken.
