Not entirely true. There were "state religions" in Colonial New England. The
Puritans, who came to Massachusetts for "freedom of religion" didn't really
believe in that, for the penalty for not belonging to and attending their
church could be death.

The civil government and the church government were pretty much the same.
The "inflytting (moving in) and utflytting (moving out)" described by others
in this thread sound a lot like the "warning out" records of Colonial New
England: Persons moving in to a town had to have visible means of support or
they were "warned out" and thus had to return to be the charge of the place
where they originated.
