How did the colony feel about religious freedom in Connecticut?

Best Answer:

The Connecticut colony had a more relaxed attitude when it came to religious freedom than many other colonies. Many of the Puritans who came to Connecticut were evangelical Christians, and they wanted to live in a society where they could practice their religion without interference. In fact, the Connecticut Colony was the first English colony to grant religious freedom to all its residents. This policy was later adopted by other colonies, and it helped to create a more tolerant society.
