Wonder why??Hitler on one hand thought once to be Christian (later he put real Christians into the concentration-camps), was "respected" by the Vatican & Luthers writings against the Jews drivels with hate, although
there are apologists (Luther-side), who think, they're are forged..I don't think so.If you get a chance, try to get the vow in English, Jesuits pledge to their order & to the Vatican(I only have a German link)...I mean, politics & religion were interwoven since old times..no surprise,nothing new.Problem is, we often think, that was a thing of the past...couldn't happen now or to us.I think that could prove very easily to be wrong...much of that was discussed at soapbox...& I think, that was needed.
