what are the jesuits supposedly doing? all this jesuit hatred, and jesuit spies, and jesuit plots, but to what end? this isn't clear to me as a non american with no knowledge of early america or inter-religion politics
>Jimmy J went to a Jesuit school
>Tommy P hates Jesuits
>The Pope is a Jesuit
>If they ain't WASPs, they ain't human
That's basically what any WASP author would say 1900-1970. Jesuits were the "Da Joos!" of that era; you can find these kinds of Others everywhere throughout history if you look hard enough.
TFW before the military industrial complex there was the glory to god conglomerate.
>Catholicism is the same as an unchristian faith…Roman Catholicism is even worse than atheism itself…Atheism only preaches a Christ it has slandered and blasphemed, a counter Christ…Roman Catholicism is not even a faith, but decidedly the continuation of the Western Roman empire…Atheism came out of them, out of Roman Catholicism itself!…socialism is also a product of Catholicism and the Catholic essence! It, too, like its brother atheism, came from despair, opposing Catholicism in a moral sense, in order to replace the lost moral force of religion with itself, in order to quench the spiritual thirst of thirsting mankind and save it not through Christ but also through violence!…Our Christ, whom we have preserved and they have never known, must shine forth as a response to the West!…Precisely from our boredom…The Russian people, as soon as they reach the shore, as soon as they believe it’s shore, are so glad of it that they immediately go the ultimate pillars…if one of us embraces Catholicism, then he’s bound to become a Jesuit, and of the most underground sort at that, if he becomes an atheist, he is bound to start demanding the eradications of belief in God by force…Why is that, why is there such frenzy all at once?…Because he has found his fatherland, which he had missed here, and he rejoices, he has found the shore, the land, and he rushes to kiss it!…Show him the future renewal of all mankind and its resurrection, perhaps by Russian thought alone, by the Russian God and Christ, and you’ll see what a mighty and righteous, wise and meek giant will rise up before the astonished world, astonished and frightened, because they expect nothing from us but the sword, the sword and violence, because, judging by themselves, they cannot imagine us without barbarism…
>Spanin was hated by United Provinces (now Nwtherlands) because of their independence war
>Spain was hated by England due to Anglo-Spanish War
>Spain was hated in Holy Empire because it defended Catholicism against Protestantism. Particularly the Jesuits were hated because they were the main defenders of catholic orthodoxy in the theological debate.
>The actual inventor of "leyenda" was Bartolomé de las Casas, who denounced the "genocide" in Spanish conquest of Americas. Actually the main guilty was smallpox.
