Catholic Founding Fathers - The Carroll Family
CHARLES CARROLL CARTER
George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, James Madison, Patrick Henry, Benjamin Franklin. Nearly every schoolchild recognizes them as the Founding Fathers. But there were a great many more Founding Fathers, even if their names are not so familiar as the above. Several of those lesser-known men who played key roles in the creation of the United States of America were Catholics.
George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, James Madison, Patrick Henry, Benjamin Franklin. Nearly every schoolchild recognizes them as the Founding Fathers signers of the Declaration of Independence, framers of the Constitution, heroes of the Revolutionary War.
There were a great many more Founding Fathers, however, even if their names are not so familiar as the above. Several of those lesser-known men who played key roles in the creation of the United States of America were Catholics. Chief among them were three members of the Carroll family of Maryland: Charles Carroll, the only Catholic signer of the Declaration of Independence; his cousin Daniel Carroll; and Daniel Carroll's brother John Carroll, who became America's first Catholic bishop.
Charles Carroll of Carrollton (1737-1832) was the most illustrious and best-known of the Carrolls. He was the only signer whose property Carrollton was mentioned in the Declaration of Independence. Carrollton was the 10,000-acre estate in Frederick County, Maryland, that Charles Carroll's father had given him on his return to America from his education in Europe.
At the time he signed the Declaration, it was against the law for a Catholic to hold public office or to vote. Although Maryland was founded by and for Catholics in 1634, in 1649 and, later, in 1689 after the Glorious Revolution placed severe restrictions on Catholics in England, the laws were changed in Maryland.

Same-Sex Marriage is legal in 37 of the 50 United States. It is a definitely controversial issue -for some- that further redefines the word 'family'. Earlier this year a video entitled "Love Has No Labels" was released and went viral. It is a simple statement that has couples of diverse make-ups stand behind a screen that only shows their skeletons. When the couples emerge from behind the screen viewers are amazed to see various degrees of love i.e., gay couples, interracial relationships, different faiths, etc. which showcases that true love has no color, gender, or sexual orientation. I invited Jason and Anthony Henderson-Strong (a couple featured in the video) to be my special guests so we can discuss their road to becoming legally married gay men and new fathers to a wonderful son.

It's All For the Children
Children are the inheritance of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is His reward. Please consider the enormous responsibility involved in raising children in righteousness. There is no greater task required of man than to lead children in the right path and provide everything necessary for their growth and protection. God requires parents to raise their children in the fear of God and to protect them from all harm. But what are people to do when the culture and society is making room for things that debase and demoralize people? The present generations are witnessing terrible crimes and abuses of children and this is the rotting of the whole of society.
There will be no call-ins until the last 15 minutes of the show. Visit itccs.org

Hey, what's five times three times five? Ah, who cares? But it's a day divisible by 5, which brings Frank Zappa to mind (cue "Five Five Five" from Shut Up N' Play Yer Guitar here), not to mention jazz fusion, prog and more. Oh, yeah, and something about remembering veterans, too.
Remember when we had a country by and for the people, one for which men were courageous and willing to fight for our collective individual rights and freedoms? Remember freedom of speech?
I know, it's been some time now since Y2K and the Presidency Where Sanity Went Away, and we got morons like Antonin Scalia telling us "the Constitution is dead", but some of us still believe in the "Grand Experiment" our Founding Fathers built for us, and know in our hearts that THAT'S what our vets were fighting to preserve...rather than the sad corporatocratic oligarchy and burgeoning serf fiefdom a band of red leaning lunatics are trying to dismantle our proud nation into.
So come and celebrate what this country is actually all about - the rights and freedoms of the individual, with a safety net for the general public, the rights of the lower and middle class worker over the wealthy shareholder and an eye towards the greater good.
It's Memorial Day on At Eye Level!
Reflections of peace causes one to think about the upcoming holiday: Memorial Day. We think about how we live in a country that was founded on the philosophy of faith, peace, and love for America. However, during this year, we have to ask ourselves if we are truly living the live our Founding Fathers fought so hard for. Thus, are we philosophical in sync. This is the focus of today's show.
