“Sticks and bones can break my bones
but words can never hurt me.”
The Pennsylvania exit polls have demonstrated that this nursery rhyme may not be accurate. Words may not break bones but they do hurt one’s feelings. Gun owners and those who regularly attend church flocked to the polls and supported with their ballots the opponent of the person who called small town people “bitter.” The day before the primary election, Stuart Rothenberg noted many Democrats have been elected to the U. S. Congress with the strong support of these conservatives including four member of the Pennsylvania congressional delegation.
I was more interested in the significance of the Pennsylvania exit polls for those individuals crafting strategies for growing churches.
