“…there has never been a Jesuit pope. Indeed, the word ‘Jesuit’ has at times been used as a pejorative suggesting a scheming politico and reflects a long-standing distrust of the church’s most intellectual and freethinking of orders.”
Wow, intellectual and freethinking. Heaven forbid. They taught me to logically question blind dogmatism and conformity.
I personally owe them a lot. If it weren’t for the Jesuits, I’d probably be a practicing Catholic.
