A Response to “Giving thanks for the Pilgrims”


The Pilgrims came for religious freedom but only for themselves. They once hanged a dog on suspicion of being a Quaker. They believed Native Americans were infidels. They called Roger Williams’ “open colony” the “piss pot” of the New World. They thought they and they alone were the only “elect” and all others were damned. They created an economic system based on one of the Seven Deadly Sins, greed, and taught what the ancient Hebrew prophets condemned and that was wealth equaled God’s favor! You can have the bloody Pilgrims!
