[1631 - Roger Williams arrives in Boston]
The Sanctity of Practically Everything
Whenever folks begin to clamor about the sanctity of any thing, we know we are in deep trouble. Who decides what is sacred? What is sacred to George may be to John profane, and to William a matter of personal choice.
"God requireth not an uniformity of Religion to be inacted and inforced in any civill state...true civility and Christianity may both flourish in a state or Kingdome, notwithstanding the permission of divers and contrary consciences, either of Jew or Gentile."
