  • Answers
  • The founders of the Pennsylvania colony believed that tolerance was a great virtue. William Penn, the founder of Pennsylvania, wrote in his “Frame of Government” (1682) that “force and compulsion are inconsistent with a free government” and that “tenderness and respect ought to be showed to all men, as well as strict justice administered to offenders.” Pennsylvania was also unique in that it allowed freedom of worship for all religions, setting an example of religious tolerance which has become known as the “Pennsylvania Experiment”.
