Growing up, it wasn’t hard to tell which priests the moms favored and the men friended, which priests the boys wanted to emulate. It was the Jesuits. They cut striking figures in the black frock coats of the day; they were fit and highly intelligent. They looked you in the eye when they talked to you. Something made them different. It’s doubtful many parishioners knew the history of the Jesuits other than they were the driving force behind preparatory schools and colleges, and what could be wrong with that? In our lifetimes, they were the last of an era when priests were men…effectively, .
Up to 60 percent of Jesuits are gay, and the Lavendar Mafia wields enough power at the Vatican to seat a Pope whose hard-left politics aligns with theirs and who lacks the character and courage to stand up to their evil. As in all institutions, the decay set in when prominent people began to call out corruption—and they were ignored.
Church Reform movements percolated in the early 1500s, but didn’t take hold until Martin Luther’s “Ninety-Five Theses” in 1517. Luther taught theology at the University of Wittenberg in Germany, and he held the Church accountable for its abusive practices, namely charging believers for “indulgences” to have the sins of family members forgiven. Luther argued that people weren’t reaching a place of repentance because they knew they could buy their way to redemption, and they were giving their money to the Church when they could spend the money to better the lives of the poor.
And, that was only one thing on the list. Luther tried to stay in the Church and work to reform it, but he was excommunicated four years later. Protestantism was born, with various denominations forming and splintering off, and it grew like wildfire. The printing press made it so bibles in the vernacular could reignite a believer’s personal relationship with God. This was a huge threat to what was now known as the Roman Catholic Church.
Members of the nobility were drawn to Protestantism and that hit the Catholic Church in the bottom line. At first, the Church’s response was to try to bring Protestants back into the fold—while not cleaning house and making no concessions. Eventually, Church hierarchy recognized that reconciliation was impossible. Enter Ignatius Loyola, a Spanish Army officer who flaunted his physique in tight hose, boots, and a wide-open fluttering cape. He fenced, and dueled, and made hay with the ladies. In other words, your typical solider.
That is up until the Battle of Pamplona in May 1521. A cannonball ricocheted off a wall and took Loyola out that the knees. He returned to his father’s castle, underwent multiple surgeries in an age with no anesthesia and little in the way to dull the pain. Given little hope of surviving, he beat the odds and healed. One leg would always be shorter than the other and his military career was over, but he limped away from the experience having had a long period of time in which to cultivate a religious reawakening, tempered by patience in the face of extreme physical pain.
Along with Francis Xavier and Peter Faber, Loyola founded a religious order that was steeped in the rigid conformity and discipline of his military experience. Loyola was convinced that not only was reform required within the Church, but it was required within each cleric. While the Church at large contained priests who were corrupt or poorly educated, this was not the case with the Jesuits. They put a premium on self-discipline and education.
Traditionally, they refused advancement within the Church because it would prevent them from moving and working among the poor. However, that practice fell by the wayside and today the first Jesuit is serving as Pope—go figure. The Society of Jesus religious order was founded in 1540 by Pope Paul III, and expanded 10 years later by Pope Julius III. Jesuits took vows that recognized the infallibility of the Pope. They committed themselves to any job a Pope might have for them. In other words, they were the Church’s SpecOps.
Jesuits were willing to use any means to accomplish the mission, the mission being to win back lands and people who had left the Church to become Protestants—and to suppress or eliminate the ones who wouldn’t come back. They succeeded in slowing the bleeding of people and resources to Protestantism, and were the first religious order to approach education as a ministry, establishing schools to give people a knowledge of Renaissance Humanism (immersion in the classics, not secular humanism) combined with Christian theology.
The schools lured Protestants back into the Church. Although this hearts-and-mindsy plan was a go-to weapon for Popes during what was called the Counter Reformation or Catholic Reformation, the Jesuits were also the papal storm troopers. Francis Xavier requested an Inquisition into “heretics” (read: people who wanted to pare down the opulence, not rip people off, and follow the bible) when he arrived at the Portuguese-held area of India called Goa. He may not have done the wet work himself, but he certainly submitted the request.
Jesuits were Oscar Mike all the time, shipping out to remote and not so remote areas and exacting a Catholic rejuvenation in clerics and believers. God’s soldiers, God’s Marines, “the Company” answered to a Superior General and took vows of poverty and chastity, and eventually obedience. Their system, whether they understood the brain science or not, was to hook people through the insatiable human desire to know, to understand, to seek and to find–education.
They established schools, yes, but also retreats with extended periods of silence and religious introspection. There is nothing wrong with any of this, except for one perpetually slippery part: The Jesuits incorporated the leanings of those they converted into Christianity, lending a universality to their teachings. Jesuits are renowned for being able to argue both sides of an equation expertly and passionately. We are told that openness is something that must be strived for at all costs, but openness also allows for a lowering of standards and an inclusion of paganistic or even satanic rituals.
It’s challenging to face some facts about men that the majority of Catholics and former Catholics admired and respected. It was easy to call these men “Father.” Speaking of names, who has the kahunas to call themselves “Jesus”? Although the founding members never referred to themselves as “Jesuits,” which carries a connotation of someone who too loosely refers to themselves as Jesus, other orders took notice and complained—to no avail.
What God-fearing order would stand by while pregnant Argentinian women were kept alive long enough to give birth then killed during the Dirty War of state terrorism from 1974 to 1983? Their babies were given away to those within the power structure or sold into slavery. Today they are adults and do not know who they are. They have no identity. In fact, human rights organizations made the preservation of one’s identity a human right.
Americans helped draft the language, but the U.S. failed to ratify its protections. As Americans, we don’t have a right to our own identities. Nothing is more soul crushing than not knowing who you are, where you came from, or where you are going. The man in charge of the Jesuits in Argentina during the Dirty War was Jorge Bergoglio, a.k.a. the Pope. To what extent Pope Francis contributed to these horrors or lacked the courage to stand up to them is debatable, but what is certain is that he certainly hasn’t been able to stand up the Lavendar Mafia within the Church.
This is not to say that many Jesuits weren’t good and Godly men. That is the insidiousness of the Enemy’s plans. We can’t say all Jesuits were bad. In fact, some Jesuits suffered at the hands of their own fellows. But as is the case in every organization, if the good men and women don’t call out the bad and expel them from their midst, the evil takes over, corrupting everything in its wake.
The last good men within the Jesuits began leaving the priesthood in droves when the foothold of homosexuality, pederasty and pedophilia took hold—as a “lifestyle” or a ritualized practice in satanic worship, whichever. Again, we know that at least some of the apostles were married. How the church determined that man should be alone, when God himself said that the one and only thing that was not good about his creation was that man should not be alone—so he made Eve. And, for the record, she should not be left alone either.
Certain suppression of female contribution to society has unintended consequences, and this is one of those cases. One of the few reasons why we know about what happened in Argentina is because “crazy women,” the mothers and grandmothers of stolen children, never shut up about it. They never stopped marching, asking questions, searching, remembering, calling out the perpetrators. Even when some in their number were killed, they didn’t stop. They banded together and got loud and pushy—the very things we get uncomfortable around in women. I’m telling you, it’s a fighting force that we haven’t employed before. Where are the women and grandmothers of American children who have been abducted or “disappeared”? We need to unleash those women.
If the Catholic church desires strong men, family men, leaders in their communities to teach and encourage believers, then it would permit priests to marry, but it doesn’t because it seems to see nothing wrong with the abuse it enables. In fact, it rewards it. Cardinal Bernard Law who shuttled pedophiles around the Boston archdiocese like it was a shell game was rewarded handsomely for his efforts. Screw the victims, their families, and friends. And yet, the Church still stands. Where does it get the money? My educated guess based on past history: illicit activities. Drugs? Human trafficking? “All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.”—Edmund Burke
