What was Roger Williams' belief about people and religious matters?
Asked in Colonial America, Massachusetts
Why did Roger Williams disagree with the leadership in Massachusetts?
Roger Williams disagreed with the Puritan government of Massachusetts because he thought they were being intolerant and rigid about religion. Although he was the same religion as they were, he had a very different interpretation: he was what we today would consider liberal or moderate, and he believed in religious freedom. Roger Williams wanted people to have the right to seek God in their own way: he believed Massachusetts should be welcoming to people of all religions, even non-Christians. He also believed women should have the right to speak in public, and he believed dissenters should not be punished. Further, he believed the native peoples (called Indians back then) were being treated unfairly, and that colonists should not take their land from them. These were not the views the leadership of Massachusetts had, and eventually, they asked him to leave.
