From Sodom, Gomorrah & Jones:
CJ's Heavy Reading

The early history of America is largely a result of the Intolerance meme. The Puritans were a persecuted Christian minority in England, at odds with the "official" Christian Church of England doctrine, so they fled to America to establish their own Puritan town. Ironically, the Puritans, and other groups that followed, in spite of being victims of persecution, were no more tolerant than their former persecutors – once they arrived on the shores of America, they were quick to impose their own version of Christianity on everyone in sight.
