Ron Johnson lectures the Pilgrims

Ron ... believes that freedom of religion doesn't mean freedom from religion.

Why does he think the Mayflower sailed?

Actually, the Mayflower sailed so that the Brownists could impose their religion on their neighbors. They had spent several years in Amsterdam, where things were entirely too tolerant for their liking. The Massachusetts Bay Colony was a theocracy, complete with forced conversions of the Native Americans.
