Society of Jesus
|Some dare call it|
It is an evangelical order, practising missionary work and education, with many Jesuit schools around the world. During the Holocaust some German Jesuits risked their lives to rescue or protect Jews. Jesuits also spread disease in the new world, killing off native populations. With so many mysterious deaths occurring around them, some natives were wary of Jesuits. The Jesuits blamed these deaths on the natives' heretical religion and converted those who believed them.
The head of the order is the Superior General, based in Rome, sometimes referred to as the Black Pope because of his black priest's garments (in contrast to the Pope's white robes) and influential position.
 Criticism of Jesuits
The Jesuit order has come under strong criticism, largely from Protestants, since its inception in the 15th century. During the Reformation era, it seemed to the Puritans to personify the wealth and corruption they perceived in the Catholic Church, and was constantly suspected of subversion. Often these fears were well founded, as Jesuits were implicated in numerous political intrigues and conspiracies, including the Gunpowder Plot.
Distrust of Jesuits, and conspiracy theories about the order, have continued into the modern era. These theories often focus on the Black Pope, portrayed as the real power behind the Papacy and the Church.
A number of websites posit that the Black Pope has a negative influence on world events (including getting rid of white Popes who refuse to obey their bidding), being linked to Satan,  general destruction, and the New World Order.
