Massachusetts Given Religious Freedom - Except for Catholics

Sucks to be them!!!

Massachusetts has been granted a new royal charter by King William III. The charter unifies the Massachusetts Bay Colony with Plymouth Colony, Nantucket, Martha’s Vineyard and many more. Most importantly, the charter extends the right to vote beyond just those of Puritan faith and grants freedom of worship for all Christians… except for Catholics. They’re still screwed.

This is a BIG step towards total religious tolerance, minus the whole Catholic thing.

Thoughts??
