    Actually, the pilgrims would have been very proud of this ruling. Unfortunately, that is not a good thing. The pilgrims did not come to America to seek religious freedom, they came to establish their own, exclusive community, one that did not tolerate deviations from their strict beliefs.

But that's not the America many of us want to live in!
