Don't hold your breath waiting for evidence. I doubt it will ever happen.

For example, I have posted this before but it the eyes of some posters, it never happened. I'm sure it never happend this time either. LOL.

Because of the rural nature of early America, many in colonial times chose churches based on convenience.
