== == This group of bigots were called the "Puritans". They thought that they had a much better way of practicing their religion and left Great Britain to be able to live without being challenged by others about their restrictive life style. They were narrow minded and beset by superstition and a mistrust of all but their own "kind" of people. If it were not for the kindness of the Aboriginal peoples, they would have starved to death that first winter.

The puritans were a group of English Protestants that were dissatisfied with the Church of England. These people were named "Puritans" because of their goal, to "purify" the Church of England and to make it less like the Roman Church. They felt the morals were incorrect and all other traditions.

The Puritans did not entirely agree with the Church of England. They wanted to purify the Church of England because they felt the Church of England was still like the Catholic faith. As a result, they were persecuted.

The Pilgrims wanted to separate from the church in England, which is why they left for America. The Puritans wanted to purify or improve the practices of the church which is why they came to America. The similarities were that they wanted to leave to escape discrimination by the king for their religious practices which did not follow the rules of the English church.

The Puritans wished to reform - "purify" - the Church of England. The Pilgrims emigrated to America in 1620 because they wished to worship in their own setting, not in the Church of England. This right, which we take for granted in the modern Western world, was severely restricted in England at the time.

The pilgrims mainly settled in New England because they wanted religious freedom. The majority of the first pilgrims were either Puritans (wanted to purify Anglican church) or Separatists (wanted to separate from Anglican church). It is also important to realize that they wanted religious freedom for themselves, not other religious congregations.

Puritans did not separate from the Anglican Church, they wanted to stay and "purify" it of the Roman Catholic beliefs that remained after the Reformation. Pilgrims believed that England shouldn't have a church who's ideals switched with every new king. They wanted to separate from the church and be free to practice their own interpretations of the Bible. Hence the name "Separatists."
