My Thoughts on the Jesuits



On this feast day of St Ignatius of Loyola, I'd like to make my stand clear on the order Loyola founded:
the Society of Jesus, aka the Jesuits.

Now before we get too much into it, let me make a few things clear:
-This is NOT going to be a collection of conspiracy theories. All of my claims can be verified by several sources.
- I do NOT think Pope Francis is a false pope just because he's a Jesuit. For that matter, I don't think he's a false pope at all.
-If you know of a holy Jesuit, this is not directed towards him. There are several Jesuits living their vows in full accordance with their order's by-laws and in full compliance with the Magisterium. In fact, one deceased Jesuit, Fr John Hardon, is up for sainthood.

Lastly, I want to make it known that this is a very tough article for me to write. My family has close associations with the Jesuits and at one point, I almost went to a Jesuit high school for reasons I won't get into right now. I've also done the Jesuit exercises and I feel closer to the Holy Trinity than ever before.

Having said all this, I've now concluded Jesuits as a whole have lost their way and the order should not be supported until they change their ways.

Consider the following:
-Out of all the Jesuit run colleges and universities in the U.S, not one has the Cardinal Newman Society seal of approval…meaning their colleges don't do a very good job passing the faith to students.
- Every single so-called "Catholic" politician that winds up betraying the faith or pulls the old "I don't want to impose my faith on others" routine are almost all graduates of Jesuit colleges.
-In a March 2015 video, Michael Voris at Church Militant made a video about a former Jesuit seminarian. (For the video, click here).
-Shortly after the Supreme Court ruled on gay so-called "marriage", Fr James Martin, SJ, went on Facebook and made a post so sugary and so asinine no thinking person could in any way take it seriously. (and trust me: a rant is coming to tear it a new one).
-In Latin America, Jesuits have promoted an idea called liberation theology. While it has not been condemned as a whole, certain portions have been. Despite this, Latin Jesuits are still promoting the condemned portions.
-American Jesuits have their own magazine called America. In 2005, then lead magazine editor Fr Thomas J Reese was asked to resign under orders from the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith after it was discovered he allowed several published articles that ran contrary to Church teaching. In 2009, under the new Jesuit head editor, the magazine gave support to Obama in receiving an honorary degree from Notre Dame.
-At one point, Jesuit priest Robert Drinan was also a Massachusetts congressmen. When then Pope John Paul II ordered all priests to withdraw from political office, Drinan resigned but not before having a long career promoting abortion "rights." 
Remember that "I don't want to impose my beliefs" bull I mentioned earlier? Drinan started that. 
Today, there is the Drinan award given to abortion friendly politicians and no Jesuit has come forward calling to end the practice, even though it's given by a Jesuit college.

Now, to make it clear I am not entirely negative, here are some positive things to say about Jesuits:
-They were responsible for introducing Christianity to the Far East.
-Some of the most admirable saints in the Church are Jesuits (such as Francis Xavier, Francis Borgia, Peter Claver, Peter Faber, Edmund Campion, and many others).
-Most of the craters on the moon are named after Jesuit scientists.
-Jesuits invented and gave the majority of contributions to seismology. Even today, seismology is still nicknamed "the Jesuit science."
-A Jesuit founded Apostleship of Prayer, considered to be the Pope's personal prayer group
-Jesuits taught a young man about the faith, and that young man not only became a priest, not only became a bishop, and not only returned several people to the Faith during the Reformation, but also became a saint and a Doctor of the Church. Today we call that man St Francis De Sales.
-Their spiritual exercises…enough said.
-A Jesuit served as a spiritual director to St Josemaria Escriva, founder of Opus Dei.

My point of all this is in light of all the good they've done…what happened?
Why are they an empty shell of what they once were?
Why are they producing so many dissidents and traitors to the faith?

While I still recommend people go to any Jesuit run parish in your area today and gain a plenary indulgence (under the usual conditions, of course), stick to the writings of declared Jesuit saints in learning about the order, and demand the Jesuits change their ways.

Otherwise, more atheists will form, and atheists are idiots.

The Devil in Detroit



I always suspected Detroit was going to hell in a hand basket, but now we have documentation:

How a homeless Satanic monument wound up in Detroit 

Baphomet is part man and part animal. The goat-headed Satanic symbol is often shown with one arm pointing upward and the other pointing down. He is even sometimes depicted with female breasts. The icon means different things to different people, but for the Satanic Temple, Baphomet's dualities make him the perfect symbol of reconciling opposites and plurality. That's why the group (who describe themselves as "non-theistic Satanists") decided to build a one-ton, 9-foot-tall bronze monument of Baphomet with the hopes of getting it installed next to the Ten Commandments monument on Oklahoma's state Capitol.
Before then, a stop in Detroit, where the Satanic Temple has established its first national chapterhouse, to officially unveil the monument. And that's when all hell broke loose. In Detroit, the group has faced violent threats, which caused them to relocate the event to a secret, private location. And possibly in an effort avoid any further conflict, Oklahoma's Supreme Court recently declared the Ten Commandments monument unconstitutional — which means for now, Baphomet is looking for a new home.
(For the full article, click here

The article would go on to say the group is open about their beliefs and anyone can access it.
On a whim, I actually went to the website…and found some of the most juvenile, self-contradictory statements I've ever come across, especially the tenants section. 
Except earlier, they said people should act with compassion in accord with reason, but later on said the pursuit of justice should prevail over laws and institutions.  

I'm not going to lie: I had a hard time figuring out which ones were the dumbest, so instead I went with the two that made the least sense in light of the others. 
What reason? The reason you feel like listening to? What if your pursuit doesn't make sense in light of reason? Which rule takes precedence? Are they saying pursuing justice is more important than following the law? Then why not just say that? Wouldn't that just devolve laws into just what you feel like listening to? How would you know the difference between a just and unjust law? 
If they're just principles, why even bother following them? What are the consequences? What about that pursuit of justice thing? What's going to win out: the pursuit of justice of the spirit of compassion? Won't one be sacrificed at the other's expense? If not, what guarantee do we have on that? If the written word should never prevail over the spirit of justice, why even have written tenants? 
But let's say for argument's sake the tenants made perfect sense. Even if they did, why should we still have no tolerance for this?
It all comes down to three questions:
1. Do they really understand what the statue stands for?
2. If they don't know, are they just doing this to protest something?
3. If they do know, do they have any idea how sickening that sounds to people? 

Considering for a moment they just admitted they are non-theistic, that means they don't believe, which means they're atheists.

And atheists are idiots.

Protesting Pioneer Day



For those not familiar with it, Pioneer Day is a state holiday in Utah celebrating when Mormon pioneers first moved and settled in that particular area. While not an official holiday in Mormonism, it's still considered a key historical moment for them.

I bring this fact up in order to make one thing abundantly clear about Mormons:

They are NOT Christians!

I don't care if they seem like nice people. I don't care if they seem more clean cut. I don't care if they look like people we should admire.

When it comes to where it counts--i.e. God's plan for us in His divine will--Mormons aren't Christians, and that's not just my opinion: That's also the opinion of the Catholic Church and for every prominent Protestant governing body.

Still don't believe me? Take a look at what Mormonism actually believes…what those "missionaries" don't want you to know beforehand:

If this seems too much, here's South Park. And yes…everything in this particular episode is true:

Now, when confronted with these facts, Mormons will always--WITHOUT FAIL---react in one of two ways:

-They'll smile like idiots and not bother answering anything.
-They'll say something like "it doesn't matter what people believe; all that matters is if their belief makes them a nice person."

To that, I ask this:
1. If it does't matter what people believe, then why should I bother considering Mormonism?
2. If you really believe that, doesn't that make you an ignorant fool than a nice person? I can help out the homeless but I look like an idiot if I do that and believe the world is flat.

And then they'll smile like idiots and not bother answering anything.

Before any Mormon writes to me about this saying I have it wrong or I don't know what I'm talking about, I have access to all the texts Mormons are supposed to believe in, so take your best shot.

The Evil of Atheist Planned Parenthood (Part 2)



Man, those baby killing scumbags are at it again, aren't they?

If you, like me, have had enough, sign the petition to defund this sickening group.

You don't think I'm being fair? They get taxpayer funds even though no other non-profit groups gets that privilege.

We've already shown atheist idiocy; now's the time to nail them with it.

The Evil of Atheist Planned Parenthood



Far be it for me to jump on a bandwagon, but more people need to see this video. This is more sickening than shooting a film downwind from an H-bomb testing area.

Phrase Moratorium



I know it's been over two weeks since the Supreme Court ruling but…I'm sorry: I still can't get over it. Not only have I not gotten over it, I refuse to get over it. In this entire time, I've come across even more levels of heretical stupidity.

In fact, I've heard several phrases concerning gay so-called "marriage" that we need a moratorium on because they just don't make any sense and someone needs to point out why they don't make sense.

1. "It's the law of the land."

I see. So when they passed Jim Crow laws, no one should have protested that because "that was the law of the land?" How about when women wanted to vote but couldn't because "that was the law of the land?" What about poll taxes? Having no federal income tax?

Oh, I'm sure you meant you think gays have the final word. Nice try, but wrong.

2. "You can't break the law."

Yeah…there's a difference between not breaking the law and something that doesn't count as a law. What's the difference? Explain how the ruling can in any way be enforced.

3. "You can't trample on other people's rights."

Try telling bakers and florists that.

4. "Banning gay marriage is just like banning interracial marriage."

1) No it isn't. Banning that didn't change the one man and one woman dynamic. 2) Based on polls, racial minorities aren't buying that. 3) the law was upholding a racist legal order. Trying to say the ban on gay marriage was upholding a homophobic legal order is not only asinine but doesn't hold up to logic.

Speaking of homophobic….

5. "Homophobe!"

NO mental health group--NONE--recognizes homophobia as a valid fear. Granted heterophobia is not a valid fear either (despite what the Urban Dictionary says) but given gay activists behavior, they're either that or sociopaths.

6. "Half of all marriages end in divorce."

What they mean is half of all straight marriages end in divorce, which is a) wrong, b) wrong because several calculations say it's actually closer to 1 out of 5, not 1 out of 2, and c) even if it was correct, why on earth would we allow a different group marry if one group supposedly is so bad at it?

7. "Gay marriage is no different than straight marriage."

Besides the obvious thing wrong with it, it's also wrong because there's no fidelity in gay relationships and gays are also responsible for the majority of new STD cases.

And before anyone cries "homophobe", a) see #5 and b) that's not my opinion; that's also the conclusion of the CDC.

Think I'm lying? Go look it up yourself.

8. "Love won."

Hate won. You know how I know hate won? Because it's obvious gay marriage supporters hate people who disagree with them.
They hate voters because out of the 35 states who let the voters decide, 33 said no. If they were serious about letting people make the decision for themselves, then they shouldn't have whined to the courts.

They hate religion because religion asks them to take responsibility for their lives and we can't very well have that if we want to whine about "rights", now can we?

They hate different opinions despite the fact they want people to accept their choices.

And for those who think I forgot about gay marriage protestors, I have a stupid phrase they use:

"9 unelected judges."

1. It wasn't a 9-0 decision. 2. Even if it was, Supreme Court justices are appointed, not elected!

I just used one because the majority of the stupidity seems to come from the gay activists.

Proof once again atheists are idiots.
