21. Try looking into the history of

the Puritans of early America. They did not believe in icons of Christ or God in any form and therefore went into periods of anti Catholic extremism. They were very concerned that the Catholics of the North (Canada) were going to come down to impose "pictures" of Jesus on them.

I'm no scholar on the subject of Puritanism, but that does come to mind.
