New Americans and Old

The New Beginning reminds of of those who in contrast to "the American Puritans who crossed the ocean in search of religious freedom, ... came for the land, for the jobs, for the prosperity and freedoms that would allow them to build a home, open a restaurant, and enjoy weekends off from work" — The Hard Truth about Orthodox (and Catholic) Immigrants.

I suppose, though, the same is true of those Anglicans who populated the Jamestown Settlement in 1607, a far happier lot than the Christian Taliban up in Massachusetts.
