Founding Myths
by Krista Tippett
Colonial America was no safe haven for minority religions—including Judaism—and the founding fathers were at odds on church-state separation. In a conversation with the RJ magazine editors, Steven Waldman discusses how in 17th-century New England it was a crime to be a Quaker and in Virginia it was a crime to be a Baptist—and Jews were kept out for generations.
