Religious Tolerance: Made in America

Religious Tolerance: Made in America
Speech or Interview filed in American History

In a Prager U video, I explain how religious freedom is a historical aberration -- an ideological revolution created by the Puritans and pre-1776 Americans.

Religious tolerance is a given in the West. But it's a historical aberration -- an ideological revolution created by the Puritans and pre-1776 Americans. What was it that led to the religious tolerance revolution? Was there something unique in Protestantism and Americanism? Or would tolerance have eventually arisen elsewhere, perhaps in Europe?
