When this land (the United States of America) entered the global scene, the immigrants, who came from Western Europe, in hopes of finding a new life in a land without a pontiff (pope) and sovereign (king), saw this new land as a welcomed relief from religious and political tyranny. Little did these Protestants know that what they had experienced in Western Europe would be duplicated here in the new land. The Protestant denominations quickly stopped protesting Rome and began oppressing those who would not worship as they did. Eventually the Protestants would stop protesting all that their pioneers had found at odds with the Bible and God. But that is not the end of the story. No longer protesting against Rome, they are preparing to join her and show the worst religious and political tyranny this world has ever seen.
