Half of Pastors Say the Opioid Epidemic Has Hit Their Church
Nashville-based LifeWay Research asked 1,000 Protestant pastors about their personal connections to the opioid epidemic and how their churches are looking to address the issue.

I wonder how they define epidemic?
Calling it a "widespread bad habit" might make people feel bad, so they shift the blame to something out of one's control to avoid guilt. Defining away guilt is the Left's way of salvation.

BTW, I informally define "habit" as something one can do while thinking of something else. This explains how I can drive towards the market when (for example) I am supposed to take my wife to the doctor instead.

Headline says, "Opioid Epidemic Has Hit Their Church"
But the text says "a family member" or "someone in their congregation knows a local neighbor...". These folks are NOT necessarily part of a church!

So this is bait-and-switch exaggeration to hype someone's book, as the article writer works for its publisher, who also paid for the survey. Now I don't deny there's an opioid crisis, but it's hard to get the story straight from those with a profit agenda.
