It seems like the Jesuit’s role at Notre Dame University has become politically focused (liberation theology/communism) and not Christ-focused. I don’t approve of that line of thinking. My take is based off of my cousin’s experience, an alum of the school, and what I’ve seen and heard from individuals and happenings in the news over the course of 20 years. That’s the extent of my general knowledge of their order that I’d see as harmful on a large scale. It seems like there’s definitely more to discover in their history.
Spending too much time speculating on “the smoke of Satan”, on what religious orders and what people are evil, and how these things have infiltrated the Church, is dangerous and divisive. One must be vewy, vewy careful when doing this. And I think, unless it’s directly affecting you and you are held responsible to decide for practical purposes, then I think it’s wrong to go there. Yes, I’ve done a little bit of that on this thread, but only because we are dealing with thousands of concrete cases of abuse that have recently come out. Perhaps we shouldn’t speculate on how liberal ideals have allowed a manipulative homosexual cabal to take root within the priesthood. I’ll admit I’ve gone the way of generalizations based off of what Out Lady of Fatima said about Russia during their communistic era, warning Russia “will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church.
