Roger Williams and Religious Freedom
Throughout his life, Roger Williams, was a passionate advocate of religious freedom and “Soul Liberties.” Williams was staunchly against forced religious conversion, and argued that forced worship “stinks in God’s nostrils”. Using the analogy of a ship, Williams argued in a “Letter to the Town of Providence” (1655) that none f the papists, protestants, Jews, or Turks be forced to come to the ship’s prayer of worship, nor compelled from their own particular prayer or worship, if they practice any. In light of Williams’s plea, ESSAYS could address how Williams established Rhode Island as a haven for religious dissenters, and his quest to live equability with people of different religious denominations.
Essay can consider the legacy of his quest to promote religious freedom. How has Rhode Island or the wider world live up to Williams desire to see all faiths co-exist? This cold includes broad topics such as how his ideas and actions have influenced later events, people, and ideologies both in America and around the world.
By welcoming displaced peoples, Williams implicitly made it clear that everyone was allowed to live in Rhode Island. Many of the people that Williams welcomed to Rhode Island were religious refugees, who had been persecuted in England and Massachusetts Bay. A significant number of these people faced both corporal punishment, and even execution, for their religious beliefs in England and other new England colonies. When Williams welcomed them to Rode Island, he may have saved their lives. In light of recent global events, essay could explore how this part of Williams vision is relevant today in 2016
