The Catholics, hated by the Protestants and forbidden to enter any of the colonies, petitioned the King of England to create the colony Maryland to avoid the other Christians’ prosecutions.
In conclusion, the vast majorities of people in the colonies were mostly slaves, indentured servants, adventure seekers, expatriated British and French paupers, most here to make some money and exploit the riches of the wilderness. A few were heretics not considered Christian and were really just trying to avoid the Christians.
As for our Founding Fathers, they went out of their way to make this a secular, not Christian, nation. A simple read of the Constitution shows this truth. Everyone should be open to revision as facts reveal themselves. Science is that way. Conservatives, by definition, are not. “Liberal” derives from liberty, freedom from old thinking and worn-out ways and freedom to accept a new reality.
I got most of this information from an old fifth-grade U.S. history book. It is common knowledge and should come as no surprise.
