And as for KIngs, the Calvinists were heretics for not recognising the Jesus is King of all and those of us now alive are living witnesses to the ineluctable destruction that followed the creation of a nation that refused to acknowledge and worship Jesus as King of Kings.

Yes, I am aware of the facts you state, however, to suggest that the Pilgrims and Puritans were pro-Papacy in any way shape or form, is ludicrous. Early America wanted freedom from the religious oppression of Europe’s kings and Popes. Whether the oppression was RC or Church of England.
Except for Maryland, the one Catholic redoubt, early America was anti-RC. What you guys stand for is the antithesis of what this country is all about.
