Is Jesuit Fr. John Dear Another Sly Fox in the Hen House?

He both castigates and praises the Order for the purpose of confusing people about the Jesuit Order's main historical purpose of infiltration, duplicity and political meddling.

They never stop their Hegelian dialectic nonsense and the black robed
Jesuits are at it again, this time spreading propaganda in a January
2008 article written by Jesuit priest, Fr. John Dear, in the National
Catholic Reporter.
The Hegelian dialectic method, used by Fr. Dear in this article, is the framework for guiding our thoughts and actions into conflicts that lead us to a predetermined conclusion.

At first glance, the article entitled "The Society of Jesus should
renounce all military ties", appears to be anti-Jesuit. But when you
read closely it's another Jesuit attempt to confuse people about the
real purpose and intent of the Society of Jesus.

The writer, sly as a Jesuit fox in the hen house, praises and castigates
the Jesuits in the same article, praising the works of founder Ignatius
Loyola and the Order's historical main purpose while, at the same time, denouncing so-called rogues or bad seeds in the Order that need to be weeded out.

The first question must be raised: Why would the Vatican hierarchy allow a Jesuit, who takes the strict vow of obedience, to denounce the Order unless it was approved for another motive?

Secondly, if Fr. Dear was true to his colors, he would leave the satanic Jesuit influence, understanding Loyola and the Jesuits have been rotten to the core from its initial foundation in the mid 1500's.

So, what is Fr. Dear trying to do by both slamming some Jesuits but
praising the Order's main purpose and cause? The purpose is a simple tactic of throwing some bad apples to the wolves but laying the wrong premise and foundation in people's minds that the Jesuit Order is basically good.

In other words, it's a way of meeting and heading off growing criticism
in the U.S. that the Society of Jesus needs to change its evil ways.
It's another way of saying Jesuits are taking care of the problem
because basically our organization from its foundation is basically good and we will weed out the bad apples.

However, nothing could be farther from the truth. According to many
anti-Jesuit and Vatican researchers the Jesuits main purpose and its
foundation was also based on a deception, infiltration and political
meddling for the purpose of hiding and spreading the wealth and power of the Vatican.

Furthermore, it is hard to believe that Fr. Dear doesn't fully
comprehend the true evil history of the Jesuit role in the Protestant
Reformation as decreed in the Council of Trent. It is also hard to
believe that Fr. Dear hasn't read the Jesuit's 4th and evil vow as
reprinted in the U.S. Congressional Record.

And if Fr. Dear was not just another fox in the hen house, he would have left the Order a long time ago like Jesuit priest Fr. Alberto Rivero, who tried to tell the world about the truth of the Jesuit mission before being killed by them with their poison cup.

Here is Fr. Dear's article, which know can be read knowledge of the
article's real intent:

The Society of Jesus should renounce all ties to the military

By (Jesuit) JOHN DEAR

Last fall, when I stood trial for our Santa Fe antiwar witness, I was
asked about my mission as a Jesuit priest. I testified under oath that
our job was to “save souls, end wars, liberate the poor from poverty,
and welcome God’s reign of justice and peace as disciples, friends and companions of Jesus.” “Where does it say that?” the judge interrupted. “In the documents of the Society of Jesus, General Congregations 31, 32, 33 and 34,” I answered.

He looked at me with stunned disbelief. “I’m just trying to fulfill my
job description,” I explained.

In January, hundreds of Jesuit leaders from around the world are
gathering in Rome to convene the 35th General Congregation, the
international leadership meeting of the Society of Jesus. The purpose of this assembly is to elect a new superior general, as Fr. Peter-Hans
Kolvenbach, 80, steps down. Many speculate that the meeting, which will continue through March, may bring new statements about justice and the environment.

In India and Africa, the number of Jesuits is growing, and many serve
the poor and work for justice and peace. Here in the United States, with our 28 universities serving the well-to-do and our 71 secondary and pre-secondary schools, our numbers have dropped from 8,000 a few decades ago to under 3,000, with most members over 60 years old.

This past spring, the National Jesuit News, a U.S. newspaper reporting on the Society of Jesus, featured a glowing profile of a Jesuit priest who served as a chaplain in, of all places, Abu Ghraib, Iraq -- not to minister to the tortured, but to the torturers. Happily, he has left Iraq. Alas, he now teaches the morality of war at West Point, where, incidentally, the police have banned me for life.

This report was shocking and scandalous to me and my Jesuit friends. I don’t understand how we claim to follow the nonviolent Jesus yet support someone who works in a torture center or an international war headquarters. Unfortunately, given our history of violence, it’s not surprising. The Jesuits owned slaves in Maryland up until the 1850s and did not liberate them. They justified slavery, sold these human beings and used the money to set Georgetown University on a firm financial ground.

Many Jesuits throughout history supported war or were part of war. A
U.S. battleship is named after a Jesuit. A Jesuit law school dean from Colombia currently serves on the board of directors of the notorious “School of the Americas,” now known as the Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation. Jesuit university presidents have awarded honorary degrees to Presidents Reagan and Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice. The leading Jesuit publication, America, features regular ads paid for by the Pentagon to recruit priests to join the military in support of their killing campaigns. Two Jesuits were involved in the development of the atomic bomb. Until recently, a Jesuit worked at Los Alamos, the U.S. nuclear weapons headquarters.

On top of this, most of our universities and high schools train young
people how to murder other people in an evil program called Reserve
Officer Training Corps, or ROTC. This work goes against everything Jesus gave his life for, everything we stand for. While I was in Central America in 1985, Salvadoran Jesuit Ignacio Ellacuría talked about ROTC: “Tell the Jesuits of Georgetown that they are committing mortal sin because they are supporting the forces of death, which are killing our people.” He was assassinated in 1989.

These realities disturb and depress me. After the Second Vatican
Council, Pedro Arrupe, the massacre of the Salvadoran Jesuits, Sept. 11, the sex abuse scandals, the wars on Iraq and Afghanistan, why haven’t Jesuits and Jesuit institutions moved forward with the task of disarmament, a prerequisite for any “faith that does justice”? I have spent years trying to end the Jesuits’ support of war, to no avail. But I’ll keep at it.

I keep at it because of the dozens of heroic Jesuits around the country who continue to inspire and amaze: saints like Daniel Berrigan, who will turn 87 this May; Steve Kelly, currently serving a prison sentence for an anti-torture witness; Greg Boyle and Mike Kennedy serving gang members in Los Angeles; and many others.

We Jesuits have a celebrated history of saints and martyrs -- from St.
Ignatius and St. Francis Xavier to Edmund Campion and Peter Claver, to Miguel Pro and Walter Cizek, to Alfred Delp and the 80 Jesuits targeted and killed by the Nazis. At the recent protest gathering at the U.S. Army’s Western Hemisphere Institute, Fort Benning, Ga., a list of Jesuits martyred since the 1970s was read out. Forty-six names were read, including Ignacio Ellacuría and six other Jesuits of El Salvador. There was Richie Fernando, working in a refugee camp in Cambodia in 1996. Someone tossed a bomb into the camp in the middle of a youth
soccer game Richie had organized. Richie jumped on the bomb and saved the lives of dozens of kids. There was Martin Royackers working in a slum parish in Jamaica, preaching against violence, drugs and gangs, only to be assassinated on the church doorstep in 2000. And Thomas Anchanikal, an Indian Jesuit who defended the dalits (the “untouchables”) from unjust landlords; he was beheaded in 1997.

“What is it to be a Jesuit?” the 32nd General Congregation, under the
leadership of Pedro Arrupe, asked.

It is to know that one is a sinner, yet called to be a companion of
Jesus as Ignatius was. … Today the Jesuit is a man whose mission is to dedicate himself entirely to the service of faith and the promotion of justice, in a communion of life and work and sacrifice with the companions who have rallied round the same standard of the cross, for the building up of a world at once more human and more divine.
In his forthcoming book, They Come Back Singing: Finding God with the Refugees, published by Loyola Press, my Jesuit brother Gary Smith tells about a pamphlet that’s circulating in Uganda. Titled “The Secret Terrorists,” it accuses the Jesuits of fomenting terrorism. “Those damn Jesuits are plotting again,” it begins.

“I confess we are plotting,” Gary writes. “But there is nothing secret
in our plotting. It is this: to overthrow the world’s duplicity with the
truth of the Gospel; to confront injustice with Christ’s passion for the
poor; to replace violence with peace; to go anywhere, anytime, and by any means to places where we can confront the heart of darkness with the heart of God.”

I hope Gary is right. That nonviolent plotting for justice and peace in
the footsteps of Jesus drew me into the Jesuits 26 years ago and keeps me in.

As Jesuit leaders gather in Rome to plot our work for the next few
decades, pray with me that we can reclaim our early historic Gospel
zeal, the spirit of our saints and martyrs; that we might individually
and corporately renounce violence and war once and for all; that we
might ban ROTC from every Jesuit campus; that we might have nothing to do with any military anywhere and instead defend the poor and marginalized from every injustice.
