This is a good example of why truth is often counter-intuitive to, or at least unexpected by, the masses. I live in a culture intoxicated with opinion polls. From politicians to pastors we misuse the ones that reflect our views and abuse the ones that reject them. If we disagree with a poll, we become brave and label our self a statesman (if a politician) or a prophet (if a pastor.) If we agree, we get over-confident and call our self a man of the people (if a politician) or a man of Issachar *(if a pastor.)
I think the political process has been eviscerated by the 24 hour opinion polls as news cycle. Churches have been encapsulated by the seeker sensitive methodological models.
If you want the answer to a math question, asking 100 people does not necessarily provide a trustworthy answer. Include the toddlers and you may get an interesting array of opinions. The correct answer is a fact. We could do with a lot more facts and a few less feelings.
