True, they came for religious

True, they came for religious freedom but not so much to discontinue authoritarian rule. They became equally as authoritarian condemning those who didn't believe as they did. The original Puritans ruled with an iron fist and punished and exiled all those who went against their beliefs.

Our Founders did a truly radical thing when they created a secular Constitution for our country because the original inhabitants came here to create a theocracy that was based on their beliefs which were so heavily persecuted in England.
