    The Jesuits are a muderous cult. Here's what Abraham Lincoln said about the evil Jesuits:

    "This war [i.e., the American Civil War of 1861-1865] would never have been possible without the sinister influence of the Jesuits. We owe it to popery that we now see our land reddened with the blood of her noblest sons. Though there were great differences of opinion between the South and the North on the question of slavery, neither Jeff Davis nor anyone of the leading men of the Confederacy would have dared to attack the North, had they not relied on the promises of the Jesuits, that, under the mask of Democracy, the money and the arms of the Roman Catholic, even the arms of France were at their disposal, if they would attack us. I pity the priests, the bishops and monks of Rome in the United States, when the people realize that they are, in great part, responsible for the tears and the blood shed in this war. I conceal what I know, on that subject, from the knowledge of the nation; for if the people knew the whole truth, this war would turn into a religious war, and it would at once, take a tenfold more savage and bloody character. It would become merciless as all religious wars are. It would become a war of extermination on both sides. The Protestants of both the North and the South would surely unite to exterminate the priests and the Jesuits, if they could hear what Professor Morse has said to me of the plots made in the very city of Rome to destroy this Republic, and if they could learn how the priests, the nuns, and the monks, which daily land on our shores, under the pretext of preaching their religion, instructing the people in their schools, taking care of the sick in the hospitals, are nothing else but the emissaries of the Pope, of Napoleon, and the other despots of Europe, to undermine our institutions, alienate the hearts of our people from our constitution, and our laws, destroy our schools, and prepare a reign of anarchy here as they have done in Ireland, in Mexico, in Spain, and wherever there are any people who want to be free."

    -Abraham Lincoln (1809-1865; 16th President of the United States)

    Source(s): The Jesuits exist only to force people into worshipping the "pope". There is no "pope" in the Bible. Catholics are not saved Christians, and they teach a false gospel of works that leads to eternal hell. The Jesuits and the genocidal Vatican have murdered millions and have sent millions to eternal hell.

    The Society of Jesus is the official name of the Jesuit Order. It was founded in 1540 by St. Ignatius Loyola. The Jesuits plyed a key role in the conversion of the Americas and parts of Asia. While their missionary work was impressive, the order has has its problems, due to their tendency to meddle too much in politics. They have been suppressed by the Holy See a couple of times.

    The most recent difficulty of this religious order was their involvement with socialist movements in Latin America under the philosophy of "Liberation Theology." The Jesuits in Latin America are openly defiant of the Pope in this matter. These last maverick actions resulted in the shooting of some Jesuit priests in Nicarauga for providing military support for the socialists.
