no it wasn’t. Religious persecution was never a reason for the founding of the United States. And the Pilgrims that came here left Europe because it got too religioisly free for them and they weren’t allowed to persecute the people they wanted to. Now after the US was a thing many immigrants came here to escape religious persecution, but that was never a complaint against the British by the founders.Um, yea, you do know this country was founded by people looking for freedom to practice their religion, free of hassle from the man, right? So one way to look at it is the country was started by what other people saw as religious nuts.
We seemed to have done alright.
