    "The Roman Catholic Version of the American Revolution"

    in History

    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.

I remember the nights we had soldiers call from Iraq letting us know they enjoyed this show! I remember the fear in one man's  voice as he asked us to pray for his unit.  We hope to honor them tonight with this show. The last thing we want is to stir up your emotions and then you do not feel a call to personally honor these brave men and women.  Pease remember to take time today to pray for the families and friends of our brave fallen men and women.  Then in your own way, show thanks for their service.  We are shairing a program with you that is helping our wounded vets.

    Sasquatch Watch Radio Welcomes Mark Hudak!

    in Science

    Join us Tuesday night May 26, 2015 at 9pm eastern as we welcome Mark Hudak to the show!  Mark took Environmental Management as a vocation in high school.. Mark has furthered his knowledge by a strong urge to learn about every plant and animal in Ohio by self education.  He has been an avid hunter and fisherman all his life with many exploits and accomplishments. He first read and learned about Bigfoot at a young age and was influenced by the movie "The Legend of Boggy Creek". During his growth, he never thought that there were Bigfoot in Ohio, just the Pacific Northwest, until sixteen years ago when his brother, two friends, and he had an encounter in Monroe/Belmont counties. They were paralleled by at least two Bigfoot for over a mile going to their hunting stands then screamed at by one of them. It was truly a life changing experience for him. He has read over eighty books on the subject, poured over countless websites, and has been a guest on five internet radio shows now. He has been actively researching now for over sixteen years.

    Ber Careful If You Think You Stand LEST You Fall

    in Current Events

     Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.


     Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents.


     Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer.


    Now all these things happened unto them for examples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come.


    Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall.


     There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.


    14 Wherefore, my dearly beloved, flee from idolatry.


    15 I speak as to wise men; judge ye what I say.


    The cup of blessing which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? The bread which we break, is it not the communion of the body of Christ?


    For we being many are one bread, and one body: for we are all partakers of that one bread.


     Behold Israel after the flesh: are not they which eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar?


    19 What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing?


    20 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.


    21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.
