Bio: Roger Williams was an English Protestant theologian who was an early proponent of religious freedom and the separation of church and state.

Quote of the day

From a poor man, poor in Time, I was suddenly lifted up into a vast revenue; I could see no end of my possessions; I wanted some steward, or judicious bailiff, to manage my estates in Time for me.
