Best Answer

Roger Williams and Anne Hutchinson founded Rhode Island. They founded Rhode Island because of the religious tension in Massachusetts. They were both forced out of Massachusetts. Roger Williams was forced out because he believed that you didn't need to worship god in a certain way, you just needed to worship him in your way. Anne Hutchinson was forced out because she told the colonists that she spoke to God and he told her to tell them which preachers they should listen to. She told them which Preachers were speaking the true word of God
