    The colony known as Massachusetts, was founded by a fraction of Puritans. These Puritans came to America in search of religious freedom, and in turn, non-Puritans were forced to practice the same beliefs. Those not practicing the Puritan faith were punished by being whipped and sometimes persecuted. Many were forced out of Massachusetts into another colony where the settled, Rhode Island.

    Rhode Island was the place dissenters were forced to live. Any religion founded and practiced in Rhode Island was accepted. This was the first colony to accept all religious beliefs. Many of the dissenters that were not forced to settle in Rhode Island settled in Connecticut.
