I personal think that freedom of religion is great and wonderful thing. Without it I feel that there would be a lot of uncontrolled chaos between religion factions like violent protesting religious groups and the destruction of religious property. With freedom of religion we are forced to deal with each other and learn about each other. I believe this has helped our society and made us more tolerant of other religions and idealism and thous better people as a whole. For instance my sister is a bible thumbing christens and I am a god doubting Ignosticism and we get along just fine.
I reached John Winthrop and found out that he was a very important puritan. He was the first governor of the Massachusetts Bay Colony for 12 terms but then he was banished from the colony for having a fight with Roger William.
