The American conservative can do anything he wants. However, only, only under terms which is the reality of 2013. In 2013, the American Christian church do not have one vestige of power, influence, and authority to intervene people's lives. The United States of American government since 1790, don't have one vestige of power, influence, or authority to intervene in an American person's life.
Since 1954, a person with white skin has not had the power, influence, or authority to intervene in another American citizen's life. You can intervene for about two weeks in your own life, 2013, style, then a change happens. Give it and us a break, this is a fluid era.
