Pennsylvania was founded as a more "free" state then the other colonies, with regards to religion that is. The Quakers were being persecuted all over America but when Penn. was founded, one of the first things William Penn (gov. assigned by Charles II of the British) did was to make his state free of all religious persecution which set an example. Many colonies and countries adopted free-religion legislature soon after.

Some measure of religios tolerance with an emphasis on European Quakers.
