What is implied in the Constitution is that the persecution was just religion based and not being caused by those of a different and lesser race. That is why the clause, "Congress can make no laws that RESPECT religion is in the Constitution!"
What we know today is that there are likely even completely different species among us such as the Chromosome missing or extra Down's Syndrome and also the RH- blood type!
What if Religious leaders were all of a different species; and that is who the Founders of the United States fled from and established freedom as a defense against them? That is how the Constitution reads to me; the meaning of it!
