just some grammar carl, "too" should be "to"

Robert Miller

Certainly, Catholics who live in the US should honor the Carrolls of Maryland.

But I think their Recusant take on what Catholics' role in public life ought to be is central to the "faithful citizenship" impasse we face today (and really have faced, though not as acutely, since the founding of the republic).

Charles Carroll may have been the "last Roman" -- and perhaps even the noblest of them all. But he was not an American Caesar, and neither is the US regime. Before we "render unto Caesar", we must first ask Our Lord's question: "Whose image and inscription are these?"

Stephanie Mann

No one claimed Charles Carroll was an American Caesar--the author refers to him as an American Cicero! I presume he gives him that title because Carroll defended the republic against, not imperialism like Marcus Tullius Cicero, but democracy. Looks like an excellent book.
