The broadcasting of this issue of a local church being 'thankful' for the San Bruno gas line explosion is relevant and up to date because it was posted within this week. It is relevant because the San Bruno explosion changed many people's lives. The sources are pretty reliable because they are either community/church members being interviewed about their thoughts on why they think the gas line explosion was a sign to not tolerate homosexuals in a bay area high school. The article does reflect 7 live's mission statement because this news is modern and an issue that has been debated. It is of interest to the society.
