The First Jesuit Pope: Criminal? Bringer of End Times?

You just knew that the first Jesuit to become pope had to have some juicy scandals somewhere in his past. To start with, Salem-News.com reports:

Former Cardinal and Pope-elect “Francis I”, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, is accused of helping kidnap opponents of Argentina’s military junta during the 1970’s “Dirty War”, and of baby trafficking, by lawyers and members of the Plaza de Mayo human rights group. (Los Angeles Times, April 17, 2005, “Argentine Cardinal Named in Kidnapping Lawsuit.”

Then there are the “Black Pope” end times theories, rounded up by IBTimes.com:

The 2013 papal conclave may have escaped the precise election of a black-skinned pope, but conspiracy theorists among netizens remain adamant the selection of Pope Francis has indeed heralded the end of days for the people on planet Earth.

…The former Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio is the leader of the Jesuits, who traditionally wear black cassocks. When he got elected to become spiritual leader of the Catholic church, he became the first Jesuit Pope.

“Therefore, the head of the Catholic church Pope Francis, who is now ‘Peter,’ is also the head of the Jesuit Order,” the member said.

Simply put, Pope Francis is, at least according to conspiracy theorists at that forum, the black pope…

Trying to head off the conspiracy theories before they take root, U.S.Catholic does its best to debunk them:

Thanks to over four centuries the Jesuits’ global presence, the order has been the subject of speculative adventure stories which all have the same underlying theme: the prime directive of the Society of Jesus is to preserve the power, wealth, and prestige of the Society of Jesus. Some of the greatest hits include:

They are headed by the Black Pope, who influences and controls the real pope.
The Jesuits are headed by a general. On formal occasions he wears a black cassock similar to the pope’s white cassock. The rest of the time, he usually wears a clerical collared shirt and slacks. Like just about every other priest you know.

The Jesuits are all secretly Jews.
This nugget of anti-Semitism stems from the fact that several of the first members of the Society of Jesus in Spain descended from Jewish families forced to convert to Catholicism during the reign of Ferdinand and Isabella. But the modern Jesuits? Definitely not Jewish…

There’s lot more out there … the Jesuits are often described as “God’s Marines,” regarded as the Catholic Church’s enforcers. They are the Machiavellian masters, so this pope’s regime is bound to be full of intrigue. Enjoy the show!

    Of course he’s a criminal, why would they want to buck tradition?

  2. It would be unseemly to spread unfounded accusations and rumors about such an undoubtedly holy man.

    Who’s got some not mentioned here?

  3. Before you say anything, I would recommend you to read this post about “new” Pope

    pales in comparison to the skeletons in the closets of the Homeland Feral Grubberment

    Man, If you want to look for end times, just look out the damned window. I don’t need crackpot theories to tell me that we are looking into the abyss. One need go no further than your favorite news site to see that we are in danger of extermination. Be it polluted air and water, toxic food, global warming, over population, dying oceans, dying bees, fracking, ect. The “Black Pope” is just window dressing.

    63 dollars is a really obscure amount. Is that before or after taxes? What kind of laptop was she sporting? What is the exact amount of hours? Because in the grand scheme of things and the seemingly infinite progress of time, a few hour could be a few years. Lastly, is your friend blond by any chance? I have a thing for blonds with disposable income and lots of free time.

  12. The church is left of centre on just about absolutely everything except those things that are relative trivia until globalists start sowing division among a countries chattering classes, like homosexuality and abortion (ie. the pet issues of first world liberals).

    That leftist ‘humanists’ should spend so much time on such issues and ignore the overall trend within the Church to shift left, is very telling as to their true agenda.

    • Protecting pedophiles and helping right-wing governments disappear people is not part of any secular humanist agenda I ever heard of.

      Your church has a track record. Care to defend it?

      • Its not my church because I’m an atheist, I’m objecting to manufactured criticisms of the Catholic church that have no connection to reality.

        And most of those ‘paedophiles’ in the clergy were older guys fucking teenage men, sure covering up faggotry is Catholic hypocrisy to save face but these people are not child molesters. Which ‘right wing’ government did they help people to disappear from? If you’re referring to the current Pope he’s way to the left of Obama by any traditional measure of socialism before liberals subverted it for ‘first world issues’.
