Before we enter this subject I would point out that with the rush to present information about the Society of Jesus in recent years, many who operate in this theatre are apt to merge the Vatican system with that of the Jesuits. Today under Pope Francis[1] this is definitely the case, but it has not always been so, the Jesuits and pre-Vatican II Catholicism had shown themselves to be absolute opposites.

The Jesuit Order or more correctly The Society of Jesus or  ‘The Company’ was formed from the differing Monastic orders existent in the 1500s. It is headed by the Jesuit Superior General also known as the ‘Black Pope’ and is said to be the most formidable enemy to religious and civil liberty that the world has ever seen. The Jesuits became so infamous in Europe for fomenting wars and revolutions, and for assassinating heads of State, that they were expelled from 83 countries, city-states, and cities by 1931 – quite often by Roman Catholic monarchs.

In Burgundy from around 909 AD at Cluny Abby, the seat of the Roman Church, the Merovingians-Carolingians completely reversed the Benedictine doctrine on property and land ownership and became the Monastic system. Thus the Monasteries became the base for the warrior tribes that want omnipotent control over the earth.

In 1773 a Papal Bull was signed to suppress the Jesuits by Clement XIV, this coming after Clement XIII was murdered for agreeing to sign, but not getting the chance. Clement XIV for signing the Bull would die a horrible death in that his body began to decompose before he actually died, suggesting some horrific poisoning event, a point synonymous with the preferred method of assassination by the Jesuits. From this time would see the Society disappear from the public stage at least in the fact it was spoken of no more within Catholicism, but Jesuit led Napoleon Bonaparte after capturing Rome in 1798, imprisoning Pius VI who then died some six weeks later. By some miracle the next Pope, Pius VII, in 1814, would rebirth the Society of Jesus one year before the Napoleonic wars would come to an end.  The Secret Treaty of Verona which reinstated the Society into Vatican life caused great concern for American James Monroe whose doctrine was formed to curtail the spread of the Jesuits into America, John Adams and Thomas Jefferson also had concerns which has been referenced in a letter between them. All three were killed on the 4th of July, Adams and Jefferson within hours of each other.

1647 : Roman Catholic Bishop Palafox found almost all the wealth…and all the treasures of the Province of [South] America in the hands of the Jesuits…

All this property and all these considerable revenues which might make a sovereign powerful, serve no other purpose than to maintain ten [Jesuit] colleges… To this may be added the extraordinary skill with which they [the Jesuits] make use of and increase their super-abundant wealth. They maintain public warehouses, cattle fairs, butcher-stalls, and shops… They lend out their money for usury, and thus cause the greatest loss and injury to others.”
Roman Catholic Bishop Palafox (from a letter of his in 1647)

What is conveyed in the above quote is that the South American expedition of Columbus became in part the possession of the Jesuits, as the main purveyors of trade and finance. Given the Spanish monarchy had set loose the drive for the Americas, was it not the case that the Jesuits had basically taken the power away from the monarchs? And like the days of the Templars, the wealth gained for a secret order would be based on the conquest of kings, Kings that claimed their actions for the Church. Such a move would certainly fill the coffers enough to become a powerful opposition to the Church itself.

Like the suppression itself, the media event unfolded in several stages, each of which had its own characteristics and transnational dynamics. It began with a piece of news that, on the face of it, had no connection with the Society of Jesus: In January 1759 the Portuguese court announced that King Joseph I (1714–1777) had been the target of an assassination attempt in September 1758, a fact that had been kept silent for some months by the Portuguese government. Occurring only months after the attempted assassination of the French King Louis XV (1710–1774) in January 1757, the news of the attempted regicide shocked the European public. Rumours soon began to circulate, however, suggesting that the Jesuits had had some part in this affair. The consensus of opinion which had initially characterised the response of the press throughout Europe vanished immediately and the news item of the attempt on the life of the Portuguese king turned into a controversy about the Jesuits. The king and his minister Marquis of Pombal expelled the Jesuits from Portugal in September 1759, accusing them of having provided a theological justification for, and having actually instigated, a plot against the king’s life in order to cover up their rebellion in South America, where they had allegedly seized royal territory and founded an independent ‘Jesuit Republic‘.

This first stage of the media event lasted until 1761, when a controversy involving finances and a Jesuit missionary in the French Caribbean called Father Lavalette caused public attention to shift from Portugal to France. Inspired by the Portuguese example, the French high courts or parliaments used the Lavalette affair to launch an attack on the French branch of the order, eventually denouncing Father Lavalette’s doctrines as seditious. In 1761/1762, much to the king’s displeasure, the magistrates declared the constitutions of the order incompatible with the laws and customs of the realm, closed down the Jesuit colleges and forced the fathers to renounce their religious vows or leave the kingdom. Louis XV, seeing no means of contravening the actions of the parliaments, confirmed the interdiction in 1764.5 The Society of Jesus had then lost two of its most important branches and the cumulative character of the repressive acts against the Jesuits was obvious to contemporary newspaper readers. The third and last stage of the media event began with the expulsion of the fathers from Spain and its colonies in 1766.6 It was then generally believed that the fate of the Society of Jesus as a whole was at stake, a perception which was reinforced by the Jesuits’ banishment from Naples in 1767 and from Parma in 1768, and was confirmed by Pope Clement XIV’s (1705-1774) issuing of the brief Dominus ac Redemptor in 1773.

Pope Clement XIV

After the suppression of the Jesuits in many European countries and their overseas empires, Pope Clement XIV issued a papal bull on July 21, 1773, in Rome titled : “Dominus ac Redemptor Noster ”. That decree included the following statement.

“…having further considered that the said Company of Jesus can no longer produce those abundant fruits…in the present case, we are determining upon the fate of a society classed among the mendicant orders, both by its institute and by its privileges; after a mature deliberation, we do, out of our certain knowledge, and the fullness of our apostolical power, suppress and abolish the said company: we deprive it of all activity whatever…And to this end a member of the regular clergy, recommendable for his prudence and sound morals, shall be chosen to preside over and govern the said houses; so that the name of the Company shall be, and is, for ever extinguished and suppressed. …”
- Pope Clement XIV, Dominus ac Redemptor Noster

Clearly the Jesuits upset the colonial monarchs by claiming the trade and financial dealings in the South American colonies, what is not clear is the degree to which they acted against the doctrine of the Church. Yet the Church did move against the Jesuits which suggests the moves made by the Jesuits was indeed a self serving program not unlike the agenda of the Templars.

According to Theosophist Alice Bailey in her book; The Externalisation of the Hierarchy, the intention of the Illuminati is to get the masses in three ways; through education, the Church and the Masonic orders. The aim of the Illumined is to externalise the mystery religions and present it as the one world religion.

The method of the global Illumined direct out of the mystery religion of antiquity operates in this manner :
The Jesuits control the Church
Freemasonry controls the Reformation
The Suffis control Islam
The Rosicrucians control the New Age Movement

The purpose of Pombal’s campaign was to gain Europe-wide acceptance for the official Portuguese version of the Jesuit affair in order to justify the expulsion of the fathers. According to this version, Jesuit missionaries had usurped Portuguese territory in Paraguay in order to establish an independent “Jesuit Republic” and to enslave the native Guaraní, their primary goal being the enrichment of their order. As the king was about to discover their betrayal, the Jesuits plotted to murder him. To this end, they conspired with a group of discontented noblemen and abused their spiritual authority by assuring the noblemen in the confessional that the murder of King Joseph I only constituted a venial sin.

One thing is clear in history, the Jesuits held slaves. This is important when we consider the fact slavery became a part of the colonial agenda. This suggests that with or without the Jesuits, the colonial monarchs copied the same strategy of the Jesuits, especially within the Protestant nations, or history has chosen to present this fact while hiding none Protestant use of slavery.

The Reformation
If we dig deeper into the role played by the Jesuits in the Reformation from the start, does suggest that regardless of what went on as far as the Jesuits and the Church of Rome, the Jesuits still had control of the Reformed doctrine that is the Protestant religion.

Let us add the testimony of a professed Jesuit, by way of making up full weight. When archbishop Laud’s papers were examined, a letter was found among them, thus endorsed with that prelate’s own hand :

“March, 1628. A Jesuit’s Letter, sent to the Rector at Bruxels, about the ensuing Parliament.” The design of this letter was to give the Superior of the Jesuits, then resident at Brussels, an account of the posture of civil and ecclesiastical affairs in England; an extract from it I shall here subjoin: “Father Rector, let not the damp of astonishment seize upon your ardent and zealous soul, in apprehending the sodaine and unexpected calling of a Parliament. We have now many strings to our bow.

We have planted that soveraigne drugge Arminianisme, which we hope will purge the Protestants from their heresie; and it flourisheth and beares fruit in due season. For the better prevention of the Puritanes, the Arminians have already locked up the Duke’s (of Buckingham) eares; and we have those of our owne religion, which stand continually at the Duke’s chamber, to see who goes in and out: we cannot be too circumspect and carefull in this regard. I am, at this time, transported with joy, to see how happily all instruments and means, as well great as lesser, co-operate unto our purposes. But, to return unto the maine fabricke:–OUR FOUNDATION IS ARMINIANISME. The Arminians and projectors, as it appeares in the premises, affect mutation. This we second and enforce by probable arguments.”
-Hidden works of darkness, p. 89, 90. Edit. 1645.

So the Jesuits either on their own or with Church approval are claiming they have instilled a drug within the Puritan heresy, a drug that will bear fruit in undermining the whole show. What they are speaking of is the merging of the doctrines of Grace, the Protestant belief, with Jesuit Futurism beloved of the many American Evangelist’s while claiming the title of Protestantism.

This is the point at which we must look at Revelations in the Bible. There are four ways of interpretation for this important text :

  • Preterism : is the theology that the entire revelation was fulfilled before 400AD. This theology was created by a Jesuit priest called Lvdovici Alcasar.
  • Historicism : is the theology that contends that the millennium has already begun and is identical with the current church age; or, it began with the advent of the Roman Church. This was the belief held by the Reformers and Protestantism as a whole, who saw the Roman Church as the Anti-Christ system.
  • Idealism : is the theology that contends that Revelation does not refer to actual people or events, but is an allegory of the spiritual path and the ongoing struggle between good and evil. Therefore Revelations is a story of the angels and demons, it is a battle one should accept as ongoing in your everyday existence, or, man is the battleground in every given moment of his life. Technically the new age ideology can be said to be formed within this interpretation which aims to make physical this battle through the script that is UFOs and Extraterrestrials. 
  • Futurism : Is the theology, again formulated by Jesuit writers, Manuel Lacunza and Francisco Ribera in 1585, that contends Revelations has yet to come to pass.

Out of the four ways of interpretation of the Book of Revelations, two are a direct consequence of the Jesuits, Preterism and Futurism. Both means of interpretation removes the Church of Rome as the Anti-Christ system to be fought, which was the overriding belief of the Reformers. This view was then codified by Saint Bellarmine thus giving power to Arminianism from the Greek and Latin fathers. This is the drug claimed by the Jesuits to have been planted into the early reformation.

1585 saw the beginnings of Arminianism yet the Protestants continued to hold the belief about the Church of Rome being the Anti-Christ system until the early 1900s and the introduction of the Scofield Bible. Now it gets very interesting indeed because if we are to seek out the foundation of Zionism, we have found it in the Scofield Bible.   See also Christian Zionism

Francisco Ribera’s work introduced an infidel marker for the Anti-Christ figure which today we know as Islam. Islam has played into this role with the introduction of the Hadiths, thus suggesting that from the get go, Islam has been influenced by the same force that we see in the Jesuits.It is a fair conclusion from the history of Islam that in their drive to become a part of the Israelite tradition and the copying of their own end times scenario from the Jews and early Christians, they too have become embroiled in the false interpretation of Revelations.

“We are all in this together” a phrase so apt for our global condition today as we begin to understand that Superior General Hans Kolvenback’s remark that; “the future of the Church is in Asia and Africa” shows clear that whatever is building in Asia, and the thrusting of African immigrants upon Europe, has the Society of Jesus paw prints everywhere.

Jesuits, Trump and Clinton, the game today :

In Conclusion

To claim outright that the billions of people through the last two thousand years that took on the doctrines of the Church of Rome, existed in an evil existence, is perhaps the most spurious claim that any denomination of religion could make. The old Christian laws served the West very well indeed.

The West in taking on as the foundation, the laws of the Gospels, was and remains to be the only civilisation that holds love as the main emanation of deity. From this the entire civilisation has been built with love as the highest form of human endeavour. The result of which broke the ancient idea of all powerful deity to which the ancient world held as prime protocol, leading to full blown dictatorship with the king, emperor, caliph or pharaoh, as the representative of the omnipotent deity, able to do as he willed and claim it the will of God. As such the people could not question the commands of the all powerful leader to do so would be to question God.

The overriding thesis of the new world order has and remains to be a move to undermine the civilisation built in love and to return the world to the original understanding of deity as absolute power, giving theological authority to the chosen ‘Vicar’ of the deity. Here begins the rise of the one world religion.

However if we are to look at the First Vatican Council of 1870,[2] under the auspices of Pope Pius IX, we can better understand that Pope Pius IX began the road to turn the Vatican system into a dictatorship, in direct contradiction to scripture and tradition. When you understand the history from the First Vatican Council it becomes obvious that the Church and the Jesuit system has worked hand in hand ever since 1870, an agenda culminating in the Second Vatican Council in 1963. 

Malachi Martin is absolutely correct when he says the Church of Rome is a windswept house, I believe it has been so a lot longer than he had the grace to learn.

Today in 2016 the physical representation of what Revelations could well be describing, is not the Church of Rome under Christian law, no, what we can see today as a system that has absolutely no morality for life, nature nor for any idea of a spiritual self, and thus fits the profile of the Anti-Life system described in Revelations. What we face today is a mimic of the Christian law system they call the Legal System. And that ladies and gentlemen is a child in the hands of Freemasonry

Further insight into this reality explains why Pope Pius X dragged the then existent Christian law into a new block called Canon Law, the law only the Popes of Rome had control :

“After 1789 when the Roman Catholic Church could no longer use the repressive power of the State, Church authorities became more and more interested in using the Legal and ideological powers of the State Through Laws enshrined in the Concordats, through education of youth in schools and universities and through welfare services such as hospitals and Charitable organisations. In fact the Church increasingly became an ideological apparatus which fulfilled for the State and the ruling class the functions necessary for their own growth and reproduction. Inside the Church, the Bishops and Priests became functionaries of the central organisation with little individuals freedom of their own.”

Jean-Guy Vaillancourt ,Associate Professor of Sociology University of Montreal.

What the Jesuits have hidden well is the agenda of the Illumined, for which the Society of Jesus is perhaps the Praetorian Guard, an agenda by which the Illumined themselves have coveted the Roman system for itself, through which they can indeed launch their own brand of global religion by first having the Israelite tradition destroy itself through war. The only remaining nations outside the israelite tradition today are to be found in Asia and indeed big parts of Africa, and thanks to ex Superior General Hans Kolvenbach, we know that the future of the Jesuits is in Asia and Africa.

Destroy Christian Europe by twisting their own doctrines while setting up the new Church in the lands without the Israelite ideal, then set them to war….

That is some seed and drug indeed……

Notes

[1] 

[2] Pope Pius IX (1846-78) was the pope that opened the path back to papal power after the total loss of the Vatican’s Civil power within the European States. Napoleon’s General forcibly, under arms, removed Pope Pius VI from Rome in 1798 during his campaign against the entire Christian monarchies of Europe, Perhaps the Monarchs had become a little more Christian than the Church after the Inquisitors playtime?

Having lost this Civil power under Napoleon, the Vatican lost its power to make claims on territory as a sovereign nation, the empire would be severely wounded. This act brought down the Holy Roman Empire in 1798.

Pope Pius IX was the man who turned the Vatican system into a full blown dictatorship by bringing the power to appoint Bishops, Arch Bishops and Cardinals into the hands of the Pope. He also created the dogma of Papal Infallibility from which absolute despotism was born. 

Such was the mess at the time of Pius IX, even Italy had declared itself an independent nation, a republic, as all European nations bereft of the dictates of Rome went nationalistic. Nationalism must therefore be a natural law, but with the Jesuits around, they soon turn that pride in ones nation into war, immigration anyone?

The Church having no Civil power due to loss of sovereign power, the Vatican which had ruled for centuries from the seat in Rome,  determined to restore the power of the Vatican.

Pope Pius IX’s first move was to proclaim a dogma, a dogma called ‘Papal Infallibility’ on all subjects such as faith and morals, the Pope now had a divine infallibility. If you want to be a dictator one must first find a way to prevent anyone else from questioning your authority (The military do this with rank and absolute obedience programming.) Such a move was hitherto unknown by the Church and was found nowhere in scripture, that is unless scripture is describing Babylon. But as an Israelite tradition to be followed, absent it certainly is. He finally succeeded in getting his way, in spite of the then Church historians explaining this was not a divine edict. In 1870  the First Vatican Council was called by the Pope. During this meeting Pope Pius was able to declare to every church in the West that he was now  the infallible leader in all matters of faith and morals.

His next clever move was to change the entire historic precedent in having the locals and clergy of each parish elect they’re own Bishop, as was the protocol throughout Europe and in Rome herself. Pius decreed only the Pope could elect Bishops, he succeeded in his move and would expand this to include Arch Bishops and also Cardinals. Total dictatorship of the Vatican system into the hands of the Pope.

This strategy having lost the Civil power would force the power and authority of the Pope back into every Church in Catholic Europe, this would also be the case for the many Jesuit colleges and would position the Pope of Rome at the heart of the education of all the children in Christendom.

The new infallible Pope agenda grew to great heights under the next leader of the Vatican, Pope Pius X, this Pope would bring together all the laws within the Catholic Church into one block of codified laws called the Code of Canon Law, this became the basis of the Vatican morality  but was not announced to the world until 1917 and not long after the poor masses of Europe had blown each other to pieces.

Next we visit the Lateran Treaty of 1929 a treaty that shows how the Catholic Church became a modern nation, having ambassadors in 174 countries around the world. (Did you still think it was a religion?) The fascist Mussolini signed the treaty with Pope Pius XI, in which Mussolini officially conceded Vatican Hill to the Pope. Civil power back.

If we take Revelation as understood by the original Protestants then the wound of the beast was healed with this treaty. The Vatican once again became its own sovereign state with the kick back of full Civil power. This prompted many more Civil agreements or Concordats between the Pope and Mussolini.

One of these Concordats (contracts) would be signed by Pope Pius XII and Adolf Hitler.

The Jesuits were not at all successful in Ireland and England up until 1829  but this would change with the Concordat signed called  The Catholic Emancipation Act 1929, from which the Jesuits were allowed back into England. In 1833 the Oxford Movement or Tractarian Movement would be born. One of the best known leaders of this movement was John Henry Newman. Newman began his career as an Anglican minister but his ambition was to reform the Anglican Church so that it became indistinguishable from the Roman Church. This meant he had to remove all the hitherto Protestant beliefs relating to the then held belief that the Roman Church was the Anti-Christ. This was the point that the Jesuit agenda and drug of Futurism was thrust into the English Church, education and political systems.

We also better understand what has happened to law, which for many years the alternative media, myself included, have lay at the feet of the Protestant hierarchy for the birth of the Legal system, but this is not the truth of the matter at all :

“After 1789 when the Roman Catholic Church could no longer use the repressive power of the State, Church authorities became more and more interested in using the Legal and ideological powers of the State Through Laws enshrined in the Concordats, through education of youth in schools and universities and through welfare services such as hospitals.”

Jean-Guy Vaillancourt, Associate Professor of Sociology University of Montreal.

The new Roman Church now a full blown dictatorship naturally supported Catholic dictators, including :

Benito Mussolini in Italy from 1922 to 1943
Adolf Hitler in Germany from 1933 to 1945
Francisco Franco in Spain from 1936 to 1975
Antonio Salazar in Portugal from 1932 to 1968
Englebert Dollfuss and Kurt von Schuschnigg in Austria from 1932 to 1934
Juan Peron in Argentina from 1946 to 1965
Ante Pavelić in Croatia from 1941 to 1945

Today the Church appears not to act in the manner as its history presents, yet having regained its Civil power, its influence today is driven directly into politics and religion through the education of our entire political and theological class. The Church has moved to re-write history removing its bad history, especially the 600 year long torture and murder that was the inquisition. On this very subject Roman Catholic author Peter De Rosa explains the change in title of the Inquisitor office thus :

“In recent years, having had a bad press, the Holy Catholic and Apostolic Inquisition, like the Soviet Secret Police, had been renamed more than once. In 1908 the oldest of Rome’s sacred congregations, became the Holy Office. From 1967 it changed to the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith.”
From the book; Vicars of Christ, The Dark Side of the Papacy, Peter Da Rosa.

Pope John Paul II played yet another cover for the inquisition when on 12 March 2000 during Mass he asked for forgiveness for wrongs committed during the inquisition by members of the Church. 

This is a bit of an outrage when you consider the orders of the inquisition came directly out of the Papal office and directed through the Civil authority they had, this is what oversaw the inquisition, it was not a sin to be forgiven of the Catholic faithful. This is a seriously underhand and deceptive move by Pope John Paul II on the back of which they can now hide this monstrous agenda that lasted over 600 years, to future new world religious devotees. It was the Popes that signed off on any actions of inquisition, it was the Popes that chose the enforcers.

 


 

Quotes on the Society of Jesus
“The presence of the Jesuits in any country, Romanist [i.e., Catholic] or Protestant, is likely to breed social disturbance.” –Lord Palmerston

The Jesuits offer the world at large a system of theology by which every law, Divine or human, may be broken with impunity, and by which the very Bulls of Popes may be defied. It is a ghastly religion; it is a religion to be abhorred by all honest and honourable men.
-M.F. Cusack  Trail of the Serpent, Inquire Within

“My history of the Jesuits is not eloquently written, but it is supported by unquestionable authorities, [and] is very particular and very horrible. They’re [the Jesuit Order’s] restoration [in 1814 by Pope Pius VII] is indeed a step toward darkness, cruelty, despotism, [and] death. … I do not like the appearance of the Jesuits. If ever there was a body of men who merited eternal damnation on earth and in hell, it is this Society of [Ignatius de] Loyola.”
-John Adams (1735-1826; 2nd President of the United States)

“The Jesuits…are a secret society – a sort of Masonic order – with superadded features of revolting odiousness, and a thousand times more dangerous.” 
-Samuel Morse (1791-1872; American inventor of the telegraph; author of the book Foreign Conspiracy Against the Liberties of the United States)

“The Jesuits are a military organisation  not a religious order. Their chief is a general of an army, not the mere father abbot of a monastery. And the aim of this organisation is power – power in its most despotic exercise – absolute power, universal power, power to control the world by the volition of a single man. Jesuitism is the most absolute of despotisms – and at the same time the greatest and most enormous of abuses.”
-Napoleon I (i.e., Napoleon Bonaparte; 1769-1821; emperor of the French)

“The war [i.e., the American Civil War of 1861-1865] would never have been possible without the sinister influence of the Jesuits.”
-Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865; 16th President of the United States)

“It is believed that the Pope [i.e., Pius XI] will offer these services to Signor [Benito] Mussolini through the Jesuit Father Pietro Tachi-Venturi, who is often consulted by Mussolini on important matters.”
-(Daily Express, 2/9/1935) BRITISH UNITED PRESS

“[Wherever] a totalitarian movement erupts, whether Communist or Nazi [Fascist], a Jesuit can be found in the role of ‘adviser’ or leader; in Cuba [it was] [Jesuit-trained] Castro’s ‘Father’ Armando Llorente…”
-Emanuel M. Josephson (American physician and historian)

“The Jesuit Order at last reached the pinnacle of its power and prestige in the early eighteenth century [i.e., the early 1700s]. It had become more influential and more wealthy than any other organisation in the world. It held a position in world affairs that no oath-bound group of men has ever held before or since… ‘Nearly all the Kings and Sovereigns of Europe had only Jesuits as directors of their consciences [i.e., as confessor-priests], so that the whole of Europe appeared to be governed by Jesuits only.’”
-(1927; using a short quote by Jesuit Cordara)– Boyd Barrett (Ex-Jesuit)

“It would seem that the Jesuits had had it in mind, from the beginning of the war [the American Civil War of 1861-1865], to find an occasion for the taking off [i.e., the assassination] of Mr. [Abraham] Lincoln.”
– Thomas M. Harris (US Army Brigadier General; Author of the book Rome’s Responsibility for the Assassination of Abraham Lincoln)

“The favourite policy of the Jesuits [is] that of assassination.”
-Brigadier General Thomas M. Harris

“The organisation of the [Roman Catholic] Hierarchy is a complete military despotism, of which the Pope is the ostensible [i.e., apparent; seeming] head; but of which, the Black Pope [Ed. Note: The Superior General of the Jesuits], is the real head. The Black Pope is the head of the order of the Jesuits, and is called a General [i.e., the Superior General]. He not only has command of his own order, but [also] directs and controls the general policy of the [Roman Catholic] Church. He [the Black Pope] is the power behind the throne, and is the real potential head of the Hierarchy. The whole machine is under the strictest rules of military discipline. The whole thought and will of this machine, to plan, propose and execute, is found in its head. There is no independence of thought, or of action, in its subordinate parts. Implicit and unquestioning obedience to the orders of superiors in authority, is the sworn duty of the priesthood of every grade…”
-Brigadier General Thomas M. Harris
