24 Replies to “New general of the Jesuits: I do not like being called “the black pope””

  1. The title Black Pope was not a casual designation—it was earned. Expelled from over 120 countries, there is a reason for this, and it was not religious persecution against The Catholic Church. It was the centuries of plotting and planning and scheming and fomenting violence all over the globe. Liberation Theology anyone?

  2. It's understandable that he doesn't like being called the "black pope" because he isn't the "Black Pope". It's his job that no one knows who the real "Black Pope" is.
    Note to the Jesuits and the criminal Black Pope: WE WILL NOT TOLERATE YOUR CRIMINAL ABUSE.

  3. A black operation or black op is a covert operation by a government, a
    government agency, or a military organization. This can include
    activities by private companies or groups. Key features of a black
    operation are that it is secret and it is not attributable to the
    organization carrying it out. The main difference between a black
    operation and one that is merely secret is that a black operation
    involves a significant degree of deception, to conceal who is behind it
    or to make it appear that some other entity is responsible ("false flag" operations).
    A single such activity may be called a "black bag operation"; that term
    is primarily used for covert or clandestine surreptitious entries into
    structures to obtain information for human intelligence operations. Etymology
    "Black" may be used as a generic term for any government activity that
    is hidden or secret. For example, some activities by military and intel
    agencies are funded by a classified "black budget", of which the
    details, and sometimes even the total, are hidden from the public and
    from most congressional oversight.
    The Superior General of the Jesuits ("Society of Jesus") is also called the "Black Pope" and is
    believed to have similar meaning as being the actual Pope behind the scenes.

    "The position of Pope Leo XIII. in the Church to-day is
    simply that of a slave of the Jesuits. This is so universally recognised
    in Italy that when he says or does something outrageously disloyal the
    Italian press as a whole regards him in pity, rather than in anger,
    reserving its indignation for the Jesuits, saying, "Povera creatura
    (poor creature), he has to do what he is bid." The General of the
    Jesuits, the "black Pope," is the real and only Pope. The one who bears
    the title is but a figurehead.
    It is the Jesuits' policy he pursues. their voice that speaks through him, their hand that guides him."
