Not One Community, but Many

Some of the first colonies in North America were founded by people looking for a place to practice their religion freely. But instead of creating one large community open to all faiths, the first settlers created a number of different religious communites. Why do you think this happened?

I think that people thought their religion was the true religion, and that they didn’t want to be around people who thought differently, and also they wanted different laws based on their religion, and no one could agree with anyone else.
