The following is a list of earlier postings on the subject of Puritanism.  Those posting were prompted by liberals’ ever strident attacks on Christians and by the generally scornful dismissal of Puritans as ignorant and bigoted.  As the 1920s notorious critic H. L. Mencken put it, “Puritanism was a form of neurosis.”


It seemed worthwhile to take note of the historical truth about the Puritans who founded New England as a counter to the vacuum of ignorance created by John Dewey’s “progressive” education and the swing to outright advocacy of atheistic materialism in public education since the late 1960s.
