Upon hearing that I attend Puritan Seminary, I had one person ask me if we kill witches there. Wow!
Here are a few other false ideas of who the Puritans were:
- A Puritan is a person who pours righteous indignation into the wrong things. -GK Chesterton.
- A Puritan through Life's sweet garden goes to pluck the thorn and cast away the rose. -Kenneth Hare
- The Puritan hates bear-bating, not because it gave pain to the bear, but because it gave pleasure to the spectators. -Thomas Macauley
- To the Puritan all things are impure. -DH Lawrence
