Very interesting video. I have been aware of St Ignatius Loyola and his ascension as founder of the Jesuit Order. From what I have read he appears to
be like the many evangelicals of today, but in a Catholic sense. He was a religious fanatic being led astray by his blind faith in the institutions
and practices of the Church in his day. In my humble opinion, blind faith can be as dangerous as being brain washed.
The scary thing is when someone truly believes they are doing God's work when in all reality they are being bamboozled. In their eyes they feel they
are doing nothing wrong if it is destructive to their fellow man or this world in general. Europe in the 15th century was a far different time than
today where things were often done in the name of religion and faith. However, in this day and age, things are done when they are grounded in logic.
To equate the modern Jesuit Order with the one formed in the days of Ignatius is quite a stretch. Today they run some of the finest institutions of
knowledge on the planet. Wouldn't being advocates of knowledge be against what Ignatius and his inquisitors were opposed of in his day? He was, but a
product of his environment. Perhaps, the Jesuit have a sinister agenda and maybe they are the religious fanatics of old. However, I haven't seen any
of that in the modern day.
When was the last time any have seen someone burned at the stake in the middle of the town square? The only modern theme I can equate to the Jesuits
Order of 500-years-ago would be the fundamentalist Islam and to a lesser extent Evangelical Christianity. Both have some pretty outrageous world
views. To have faith is a good thing, but to be blinded by it can be dangerous. Therefore, it must be grounded in logic. Just my opinion on the Jesuit
Order and your video. Plus, I am unfamiliar with the credentials on the man making the accusations or claims, so in that regard I remain skeptical . .
