Best Answer

Both religions came to America trying to find separation from the English religious turmoil. Not all Protestants came to America at first, but the non-Anglican sects did because they did not want to admit King Henry VIII was the head of the Church of England. The Catholics came over mainly when Maryland was created originally intended to be a haven for Catholics but, because of financial regions, had both Protestants and Catholics. Eventually, lots more people wanted to come over.
