Another aspect of the chapter which interested me was the way the English used religion to justify their actions. In several instances, the English believed that it was God's will for them to kill the Native Americans, thus killing them was acceptable. Native Americans didn't believe in the Christian God, therefore they were God's enemies.
Even in the case of some English Christians who chose to convert the Native Americans they came into contact with rather than simply murdering them, conversion didn't mean the Native Americans were treated much better. Once converted, they were forced to worship and live in their own congregations and towns outside of the colony, and they had to follow very strict rules.
Through converting the Native Americans but not welcoming them into the colony, it seems to me the English viewed them as projects, in a sense. They weren't equals (obviously, since they weren't permitted into the colony) and there was something wrong with them (supposedly, since they didn't worship the Christian God), so it was up to the English to come in and save them. Similarly, this shows an English view toward Native Americans as child-like and unable to save themselves or find a suitable god on their own. It's just one more way for the English to excuse their horrid treatment of the Native Americans by disguising it in the idea it's for the Native Americans' own good.
