Since the founding of this country the vitriol against catholics by christians has always been in the background and sometimes in the forefront, seems like the same language is being used against groups and immigrants now that was once used against catholics by christians

When America Hated Catholics

A far right wing Protestant hatred, morphing into outbreaks of reformed and pentecostal hate groups, has always existed in America.

A lot of Catholics give it back: TheIrishRam, saintmichaeldefendthem, and turzovka, for instance, on the board.

OF course you must first study history to understand history. Then it is easier to know why, when and where.
Well when you look at history and who was the church in the early settlement times, you can understand why they wanted to leave it. The king of England was a representative of the catholic church, and the puritans left it for America, because they wanted to get away from the suppressive government that stole the lives of those who stayed.

Puritan Reasons For leaving
All in all, the puritans left England not as Separatists from the church, but rather as separatists from its corruptions, “to practice the positive part of church reformation, and propagate the gospel in America.” The persecution from which the Puritans fled was, then, one that was inspired in their opinion, by a party in the church, whose control would soon bring it to the state of “the house which our savior saw built upon the sand.”

as a non Catholic and a non Protestant i don't hate either . My comparison of both of these religions which i consider to be Christian based is to look at the societies that they both helped to build . USA for example was mostly influenced by Protestants while third world South America was mostly influence by Catholics . --------------------------------------------------------------------Even now , look how the Catholic POPE is encouraging the destruction of Europe with his urging to accept muslim so called refugees into Western society which is only destabilizing Europe .

One small point: King Charles was the head of the Church of England, which had separated from the Catholic Church in 1536. (A small point, because had they been Catholics, Puritans would have had the same complaints about the Catholic Church.)

Your comment practically answers your question. While there are difference in theologies, notice that a lot of the vitriol concerns political and secular matters. Remember, with the Enlightenment movement, the working class were striving to move up into positions of power and leadership--which for centuries had been in the hands of Church and Kings. Protestants leaving the Church was as much a political move as it was a theological one. This can be seen when we study the history of Martin Luther's backers and supporters. The people were of the mind that Kings and Church held the pie of power and wealth--and they didn't see why they shouldn't have a large share of it. Catholics and Loyalists were the Conservatives of their day, and the Liberals (those supporting the overthrow of King and Church as the ruling class) were Protestants who hated that day's Conservatives.

What we have been seeing for the last century is that while politically, Liberals and Conservatives are as far apart as ever, theologically, Catholics and many non-Catholics are working towards greater Christian unity.

My family genealogy traces back to Colonial times. As each new group came to America--be it Welsh, German, Irish, Dutch, or Catholic they were not very often greeted with open arms--often with great suspicion and hostility by my English ancestors. One Quaker ancestor was beaten and persecuted by Puritans.

There may be something to be said of the old adage, "The more things change, the more they remain the same."
