Chris discusses the topic of the Jesuits and their history of casuistry, by examining the writings of 17th century philosopher, Blaise Pascal. Incredibly, Pascal wrote about the Jesuits’ methods of justifying evil acts — including abortion. The phrase “the end justifies the means” is called the battle axe of their philosophy, and is said to govern the Catholic Church even now. Could this be true? Is there evidence of “casuistry” in American culture and politics today?

Two examples of the Jesuit’s promotion of casuistry in America are listed below.
NEW YORK —
His death, at a Jesuit health care facility, was confirmed by the Rev. Thomas R. Slon, executive assistant to the provincial of the New York Province of the Society of Jesus.
Father Carter’s coming out was a very public one. In October 1973, Dr. Howard J. Brown, a former New York City health services administrator, announced that he was gay and that he was forming a civil rights organization for homosexual men and women. Then called the National Gay Task Force, it later became the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force.

A celebration honoring the life and work of Robert Drinan, a Jesuit and former Massachusetts congressman, will take place at the Boston College Law School. The panel, which will take place on March 7, was announced on Friday, February 18, and will feature other pro-abortion speakers.
Among the members of the panel is Fr. Raymond Scroth, S.J., who has publicly supported pro-abortion political policy. He has recently published a book entitled, Bob Drinan: The Controversial Life of the First Catholic Priest Elected to Congress. Also scheduled for the panel is Congressman Barney Frank, whom the Cardinal Newman Society calls “a strident defender of legal abortion.” An article on Lifesitenews.com remarks that Frank’s “opposition to Church teachings is well-known in both personal and political life.”
Robert Drinan, a native of Massachusetts, graduated from Boston College in 1942. That same year, he joined the Society of Jesus. From 1956 to 1970, Drinan served as the Dean of the Boston College Law School. In 1970, the Jesuit was elected to the House of Representatives, where he served for twenty years.
