If the pope were a liberal Jew, what would his pontificate look like?
I’m being facetious, of course, as everyone knows that the pope, by definition, is Catholic.
That said, humor me, if you will, and consider the sorts of things that might come from the pontificate of a man who, practically speaking, thinks and feels and acts with the mind of a liberal Jew.
Before we begin this exercise, we need to know a little bit about what constitutes liberal Judaism, the two main branches of which identify as “Reform” and “Conservative,” despite the absence of a formal creed to which their members must accede.
To that end, for the sake of expedience, I’ll focus on sources that describe the characteristics of Reform Judaism, with the understanding being that, broadly speaking, Conservative Judaism differs rather little from Reform Judaism in its core convictions, notwithstanding its more “traditional” window dressing.
In order to get our hands around the tenets of Reform Judaism, such as they are, it is useful to consider, first and foremost, the myriad of traditional Jewish beliefs that the movement rejects.
Writing in the magazine Reform Judaism, Rabbi Elliot Stevens referred to several such beliefs, saying:
..the famous Pittsburgh Platform of 1885 that defined Classical Reform Judaism for several generations … rejected such traditional Jewish notions as peoplehood, chosenness, the personal Messiah, resurrection, and a return to the Land of Israel … as well as any references to the priesthood and the sacrificial cult.
Commenting upon the history of the Reform movement, Rabbi Elaine Rose Glickman explained:
Reform Jews prized an intellectual outlook on Judaism and valued religious tenets that could be upheld even in a rational, secular milieu. They did not, therefore, embrace traditional messianism – rooted in complicated Scriptural allusions and folklore, filled with images of apocalyptic battles, a superhuman deliverer, and even a physical resurrection of the dead.
Perhaps the most powerful reason to jettison traditional messianic belief, the Reformers argued, was that it was simply not needed anymore. Human beings – guided not by a Messiah but by their own intellect – had already begun the work of redemption … Reform Judaism abolished the concept of a divinely-sent Messiah and promised instead that humanity would accomplish its own redemption.
With so much focus on man as his own redeemer, it may come as little surprise that reformjudaism.org contends:
Social justice and advocacy are among the central tenets of Reform Judaism.
Among the causes that fall into this category (as addressed on the same site) are those concerning economic justice for the poor, gun control, and liberal immigration reform.
No one cause, arguably, has taken on quasi-religious status among Reform Jews to an extent equal to that of radical environmentalism – a movement-within-the-movement that twists the Psalmists words, addressed to God, “Thou shalt send forth thy spirit, and they shall be created: and thou shalt renew the face of the earth,” into a manifesto for purely human endeavors that tend toward earth worship.
With regard to its aversion to the traditional understanding of peoplehood, and its unwillingness to embrace a doctrine that would dare to single out Judaism as the uniquely exalted religion of the one true God who revealed Himself to His chosen people, it only makes sense that Reform Judaism also holds:
In our diverse and multicultural society, effective interreligious relationships are vital so that diverse faith groups may live together in harmony and work cooperatively.
Reform Judaism, just as predictably, also rejects traditional belief in the divine origins of the Hebrew Scriptures.
Rabbi Amy Scheinerman articulates the consequences of this rejection thus:
For Orthodox Jews, the Hebrew Scriptures is a divinely-authored text and therefore every commandment contained therein must be obeyed … Reform Jews, however, understand the texts to have been written by human beings — our ancestors.
The absence of belief in divinely instituted, obligatory precepts naturally leads to a situation wherein personal choice in matters of belief and behavior is allowed to reign supreme.
For liberal Jews, the reality is that Jewish law (including the observance of Shabbat), is not necessarily seen as binding authority. Instead, the tradition is evaluated from the standpoint of whether and how it benefits them personally. – Roberta Rosenthal Kwall, Author of The Myth of the Cultural Jew: Culture and Law in Jewish Tradition
In short, according to reformjudaism.org:
The great contribution of Reform Judaism is that it has enabled the Jewish people to introduce innovation while preserving tradition, to embrace diversity while asserting commonality, to affirm beliefs without rejecting those who doubt, and to bring faith to sacred texts without sacrificing critical scholarship.
At this, let’s recap some of what we’ve discovered of liberal (specifically Reform) Judaism, while considering how its tenets might shape the pontificate of a man who, practically speaking, thinks and feels and acts accordingly:
– A rejection of peoplehood and chosenness, as well as a rejection of a singularly exalted view of their own religion.
The pope that shares such a mindset would likely be quick to condemn Triumphalism and those “traditional” Catholics who still behave as if the Holy Roman Catholic Church is the one true faith established by God and endowed with the right to pass judgment on the personal and social obligations of men.
He might even go so far as to say that it is not necessary to convince those in error, more specifically religious error, to accept the Catholic faith (“no, no, no”), but merely to accompany them in their current condition, whatever it may be.
– A rejection of the bodily resurrection, along with a denial of God’s promise of a personal Messiah as “simply not needed,” in favor of the view that man, of his own volition, begins the work of redemption in the here-and-now via acts of social justice, thus ushering in a “messianic age” of peace.
A pontificate cut from such cloth would likely engage in a largely earthbound mission; necessarily focusing on those needs that arise from man’s material poverty; even to the near exclusion of those that concern his spiritual poverty. He may even speak of a desire for a “poor Church for the poor,” as if such superficial solidarity with the materially impoverished would somehow enrich the world.
This pope would also likely downplay both the Divinity and the Kingship of Christ, suggesting that the traditional understanding of the Lord’s resurrection somehow lacks in majesty. He may even suggest that Our Blessed Lord “stripped Himself of His divine glory” in order to serve humankind, thus providing the secular do-gooders’ best example of what it means to give of oneself to others.
In other words, this Roman Pontiff would likely give every appearance of sharing the liberal Jewish view of Jesus of Nazareth – namely, that of a noteworthy agent for social change who wasn’t afraid to “make a mess” as He went about challenging the powers-that-be with His universal message of brotherly love.
Having thus effectively demoted the Lord of all creation to the status of “all-around-good-guy-worthy-of-emulation,” this pope might even go so far as to say that man himself is “King of the Universe,” declaring that it is he who should be the “center of society and the focus of reflection.”
– The anthropocentric reading of the Psalmist’s prayer “thou shalt renew the face of the earth” that makes of environmentalism a religion all its own; leading to the near deification of the planet.
A pope that is infected with such a mindset as this would most certainly be susceptible to the ploys of those who promote agenda-driven pseudoscience (e.g., as it concerns climate change, bio diversity and ecological sustainability).
He may even contribute to the deification of the planet by suggesting that ecologically irresponsible men are guilty of committing “sins against creation,” further corrupting the Psalmist’s cry directed to God, “Against you alone have I sinned.”
To the sheer horror of the faithful and embarrassment of the Church, he might even do so in the context of a papal encyclical.
– Abandonment of the traditional understanding of the unique role of the priesthood and the importance of the sacrificial cult.
A pope who dared to tread on this unholy ground might downplay the singular dignity of those in Holy Orders, suggesting that the ministerial priesthood is but “one means employed by Jesus for the service of his people,” as if all of the baptized, heretics included, are of equal dignity – all of which would effectively relegate the Holy Sacrifice of the altar to a mere supporting role in a drama presumably written, directed and carried out by man for his own sake.
– A belief in the necessity of effective interreligious relationships, the goal of which is to embrace diversity while stressing commonality; encouraging people of all faiths to simply live harmoniously and to work cooperatively in service to a manifestly temporal view of the common good.
The pope that embraces such a notion would necessarily reject the Divine commission to convert the nations to Christ; perhaps to the point where he might even condemn the work of laboring for converts – the stock and trade of missionaries, martyrs and Saints – as “solemn nonsense.”
This pope would most certainly be heavily invested in ecumenism, and would openly preach the necessity of dwelling on those things that Catholics, Jews, heathens and heretics hold in common (as if boldly thumbing one’s nose at Christ the King and His Most Blessed Mother is but a trifle) as we go about, arm in arm, serving our fellow men, again, in their temporal need.
Along the way, he may even coin meaningless phrases like “unity in diversity,” daring to give attribution to the Holy Ghost.
– A rejection of the Scriptures as a source for divinely-given commandments that must be obeyed.
A pontificate infected with such faithlessness would likely tend to promote false dichotomies between doctrine and pastoral practice. This pope might even one day boldly declare that “the disjointed transmission of a multitude of doctrines to be insistently imposed” is the enemy of “pastoral ministry in a missionary style.”
– A steadfast belief that it is possible to introduce innovations in practice and discipline while simultaneously preserving the integrity of tradition, even in matters that are absolutely central to the traditional understanding of the faith.
The Roman Pontiff that holds such a contradictory position, God forbid, would likely pay little more than lip service to traditional doctrines while undermining the same in both word and deed.
In time, a pontificate so infested with modernism might even go so far as to invite the bishops of the world to join him in debating ways to update the Church’s treatment of matters that are truly non-negotiable; such as those practices that reflect upon the immutable truth concerning sexual morality, marriage and family as addressed by our Blessed Lord in Sacred Scripture.
So… does this hypothetical pontificate sound vaguely familiar?
Of course it does; it describes to a tee the mindset and the pontificate of Pope Francis – a man who has demonstrated time and again that he most certainly does not sentire cum ecclesia, but rather thinks and feels and acts with the mind of a liberal Jew, which is presumably why the Jewish Daily Forward named him among the “Fifty Most Influential Jews” less than a year into his papacy.
With all of this in mind, does it not make perfect sense that one of his very closest of friends (Rabbi Abraham Skorka) is a leading figure in the so-called “Conservative” branch of liberal Judaism?
Indeed, these men, and their movements, have much in common, not the least of which is the unshakable conviction that religion must adapt to the exigencies of the times; with the Lord who is ever the same yesterday, today and tomorrow summarily recast as the “God of Surprises” who magically endorses the validity of their every last whim.
You see, along with all liberal Jews, be they Reform or Conservative, Jorge Bergoglio’s words and deeds have long been informed by a worldview that revolves squarely around man – not the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, much less Jesus Christ, but man – his autonomy, his temporal condition, his conscience and his choices.
It is a stunning reality to look squarely in the face, to be sure, but acknowledge it we must.
That said, let us not zero-in on the Argentine Jesuit so intently as to ignore the role of that which not only produced him, but also gave rise to a church wherein such a man might one day enjoy singular prominence; namely, the Second Vatican Council.
The influence of liberal Jewish thought permeates the conciliar decrees, evident not only in the disastrous declaration, Nostra Aetate, but also in Unitatis Redintegratio, Dignitatis Humanae, and everywhere else the text celebrates the glories of human dignity in such way as to suggest that the Catholic Church, “no more than any other, has the cult of man” (cf Pope Paul VI – Closing Address to the Second Vatican Council, 7 Dec. 1965).
The humanist coup d’etat that is Vatican II has produced clearly discernible parallels between the crisis-ridden Church of today and the plight of its so-called “elder brothers in faith,” as John Paul the Great Ecumenist delighted in calling them.
Indeed, history repeats itself:
For just as the Jews – the once chosen people – rejected their Anointed One, only to one day find the preponderance of their progeny so far removed from tradition as to worship mankind as his own redeemer, so too has the Church in our day, thanks to Vatican II, with its practical denial of the Sovereignty of Christ, drifted so far afield that her children, the New People of God, now boast of a pope who plainly declares that man is “King of the Universe.”
No, Jorge Bergoglio is not the architect of the anthropocentric takeover of the Holy Catholic Church; he is simply the most faithful of its sons to date to have darkened the Petrine Office.
With every passing day, Pope Francis, who I pegged nearly two years ago as “the long awaited generalissimo of the humanist revolution that was unleashed in earnest in 1958” (upon the death of Pius XII and the elevation of John XXIII), is revealing himself all the more clearly to be exactly that, and his pontificate as precisely what one might expect should a man with the mind of a liberal Jew somehow ascended to the Chair of St. Peter.
“Reform Judaism abolished the concept of a divinely-sent Messiah and promised instead that humanity would accomplish its own redemption.”
Wow. Thanks Louie. Now I understand the Jews. I lived in an area with a lot of secular Jews and I could never understand them. They are very obnoxious so I admit I never made much of an effort and mostly tried to avoid them. But that explains everything.
“Against You alone have I sinned”.
‘you alone’ is much ‘updated’ by bergoglioists, skorkaists etc. – by de facto freemasons, or more simply, de facto antichrists.
Sadly anyone who will not accept Blood of Christ is a de facto Jew.
PS. Since the antichrist is never the pope, the pope is never the antichrist, so if a supposed pope is a manifest antichrist something rotten in the state of Denmark. (It still is wierd that someone with the ‘wits’ of say, a Harold Bloom, cannot understand the Blood of Christ, yet who reckons, after all, to understand Hamlet…)
the religion of Judaism ended when Christ was born. All covenants by God to his people have been fulfilled. everything that has come after that is not a religion, it is nothing. modern jews are an ethnicity, a race, nothing more. they are not old testament jews. their heritage can be traced to a place called khazaria, the land of the khazars. this area is now the republic of Georgia, and also parts of the Ukraine. most of these modern jews are talmudists, also known as Zionists. their god is Lucifer, the angel of light. they are revolutionaries. they hate Christ and his Holy Catholic Church. they are behind all of the demonic evils in this world including abortion, pornography, and gay marriage. you can listen to an interview on youtube between abe finkelstein and a protestant, james wickham. listen closely to what finkelstein says. the jews also control all western governments and parts of the east. they take control by seizing the printing presses, including our own federal reserve. the federal reserve is a private jewish bank that reports directly to the London Rothschild family.
The invisable enemy of Christ on earth is indeed at work. Satan is the enemy but who does he use here on earth to advance the decline of true christian faith & morals.
TALMUDIC ZIONIST JEWRY.
just as it was the roman soldiers who physically scurged tortured and murdered christ during his passion it is International talmudic zionist jewry who is behind the same passion of holy mother church. ( 1 , holy , catholic & apostolic ). As with our Lord you will not see their hands upon the bride of christ but it is they who are the synagog of satan apocalypse chap 2,v9 & 3,v9. Their very long awaited goal is to prepare the world for their own Messiah The ANTICHRIST. the talmudic zionist jews are behind the nwo.

” As a child of the Jewish people who, by the grace of God, for the past eleven years has also been a child of the Catholic Church, I dare to speak to the Father of Christianity about that which oppresses millions of Germans. For weeks we have seen deeds perpetrated in Germany which mock any sense of justice and humanity, not to mention love of neighbor. For years the leaders of National Socialism have been preaching hatred of the Jews…. But the responsibility must fall, after all, on those who brought them to this point and it also falls on those who keep silent in the face of such happenings.
Everything that happened and continues to happen on a daily basis originates with a government that calls itself ‘Christian.’ For weeks not only Jews but also thousands of faithful Catholics in Germany, and, I believe, all over the world, have been waiting and hoping for the Church of Christ to raise its voice to put a stop to this abuse of Christ’s name.”

Birth pangs for july 2015
Ever mindful – Not sure what trying to say ??
There are many times I’m not sure what I’m trying to say either!!
Intuitively sensed an undertone of anti-semitism, and was referring to one historical trajectory of such sentiments, as expressed by a Jewish Catholic Saint
If the “pope” were a “liberal Jew”, he would be in fact the “false prophet”, a sort of anti-St John the Baptist heralding the reign of the Anti-Christ.
“And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns, like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon.” Revelation 13:11
The beliefs of current day Jews are indeed myriad, but generally speaking those Jews that at least claim belief in “God” (since the term “Jew” really only denotes a claim to a particular ethnicity, it is not a label to any kind of religiousness, as there are even so called “Atheist” Jews, etc) do expect a Messiah of some sort or other to show up. According to Fr Herman Kramer in “The book of destiny” when the Anti-Christ makes his appearance on earth, these same Jews will welcome him as their long-awaited “Messiah” and the unrestrained vice and persecution of true Christians that will occur as a result.
On another note – how can any sane so called “trad” support such evil men such as sodomite promoting and pathological liar Bibi Netanyahu??!!
I would argue that anti-Semitism (or hatred of a specific racial group) is inherently anti-Catholic. But even Sr Edith Stein recognized that the suffering of the Jewish people during the Nazi era was a fulfillment of their own self-inflicted curse, “And the whole people answering, said: His blood be upon us and our children.”
Hahahaha im no Anti-semite im catholic i try my best to love my neighbour. In true charity theres a real reason to expose the enemy’s of holy mother church. The main sorce of this enemy here on earth is the talmudic zionist jew. Obviously they are only poor instruments of the devil but thats the truth. I speak no wrong against the individual jew. Im certain theres lots jews commited far less grave sins than i. I pray for conversion of all Gods people.
Jews against zionism
It is believed that Edith Stein (St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross) died, along with her sister who also converted, in a Nazi concentration camp. When her cell at the convent was cleaned by the nuns, they found a religious picture inscribed on the back in her handwriting that she would offer all her sufferings for the conversion of the Jews. I guess she was not ecumenical. We could use a few more Edith Steins today.
If the pope is a liberal Jew, why does he pretend to be Catholic? Shouldn’t he just announce his true allegiance and abdicate?
“November 9, 1938. The synagogue of Cologne was burned, the Jews were looted and tracked down ruthlessly throughout the city ! Sister Benedicta [Edith Stein] seemed dumbfounded with grief : “ It is the shadow of the Cross that casts itself over my people, ” she said. “ Oh ! If only they would give in to reason ! This is the realisation of the malediction that my people called down upon themselves [ “ His Blood be on us, and on our children, ” Mt 27:25 ]. Cain must be punished [Sister Theresa Benedicta compared the Jews killing Jesus to Cain killing Abel], but woe to him who lays a hand on Cain ! [ “ Therefore whosoever slays Cain, vengeance shall be taken on him sevenfold, ” Gn 4:15] Woe to this city, to this country, to these men, on whom divine vengeance will weigh heavy for all the outrages that will be committed against the Jews. ”
This is all a very old conspiracy coming to fruition. It is called judeo-masonry. It aims to destroy the Catholic Church in honour of its Master – Lucifer, pinnacle of the three persons of the Third Trinity in one Antichrist.
“Indeed, fearing nothing and yielding to no one, the Masonic sect proceeds with greater boldness day by day: with its poisonous infection it pervades entire communities and strives to entangle itself in all the institutions of our country in its conspiracy to forcefully deprive the Italian people of their Catholic faith, the origin and source of their greatest blessings.” (Pope Leo XIII Encyclical Inimica Vis, n. 3, 1892)
In 1994, former member of the Vatican’s honor guard Franco Bellegrandi published his book Nikita Roncalli: Counterlife of a Pope. Bellegrandi had worked in the Vatican from the late 1950s to the mid-1960s, during the entire reign of “Pope” John XXIII. Later he became a correspondent for the Vatican’s newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano. Bellegrandi revealed that the election of Angelo Roncalli (John XXIII) and later Giovanni Montini (Paul VI) had been pre-arranged by Marxist-Masonic forces behind the scenes:
“In the Vatican’s high spheres it was indeed no secret that after Pius XII, the coming Conclave would elect Venice’s patriarch Roncalli, who, in turn, would “bring” on the See of Peter Giovanni Battista Montini. From Milan, the Brescian bishop … was pulling the strings of a colossal game, with the precious help of a group of powerful prelates among which distinguished themselves Belgian cardinal Leo Jozef Suenens, Dutch Bernard Jan Alfrinck, and German Agostino Bea, with the secretive support of international Marxism. That colossal game that would upturn the contents and the aspect of the Church, of Italy, of Europe, and of the whole world with all its established checks and balances, needed, to get in motion and develop, a formidable “battering ram.” This “battering ram” that hit with irresistible violence against the bi-millenarian walls of the Church, shattering their inviolate compactness, was Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli. Behind him the fury of the “New Course” would burst into the vanquished citadel. All had long been predisposed, with precision, so that the cardinal from Sotto il Monte would become a breaking Pope.”
It is no accident that John XXIII’s “Second Vatican Council” took up the three Freemasonic ideals of liberty, equality, and fraternity, and foisted them on the unsuspecting faithful as religious freedom, collegiality, and ecumenism. By now, the Novus Ordo Church is essentially a mouthpiece of Freemasonry, teaching its basic tenets in place of sound Catholic doctrine, with some minor modifications, of course, for plausible deniability. Hence the constant emphasis on Masonic ideas such as the rights of man (ever hear of the rights of God from the Vatican?), an exaggerated human dignity, freedom of religion, ecumenical practices, interreligious dialogue, peace through secular fraternity among all men, and so forth. These errors have all been condemned by the true Catholic Popes before.
The most undeniable evidence of all comes from the Masons themselves, evidence that was publicly unveiled by order of two Popes – a document called the “Permanent Instruction” of the Italian Alta Vendita lodge. This paper outlined a 19th-century battle plan for the (attempted) destruction of the Roman Catholic Church. By the wonderful workings of Divine Providence, it fell into the hands of Popes Pius IX and Leo XIII, both of whom ordered it to be published. Google it and read what it says. Also check out the testimony of Bella Dodd before Congress.
The evidence that testifies to the existence of a conspiracy devised by the Masonic sects against the Catholic Church is overwhelming and undeniable. Only a fool would close his eyes in the face of it and pretend the threat does not exist.
Pope Leo XIII, in his 1884 encyclical against Freemasonry, did not mince words:
“We wish it to be your rule first of all to tear away the mask from Freemasonry, and to let it be seen as it really is; and by sermons and pastoral letters to instruct the people as to the artifices used by societies of this kind in seducing men and enticing them into their ranks, and as to the depravity of their opinions and the wickedness of their acts. As Our predecessors have many times repeated, let no man think that he may for any reason whatsoever join the masonic sect, if he values his Catholic name and his eternal salvation as he ought to value them. Let no one be deceived by a pretense of honesty. It may seem to some that Freemasons demand nothing that is openly contrary to religion and morality; but, as the whole principle and object of the sect lies in what is vicious and criminal, to join with these men or in any way to help them cannot be lawful
(Pope Leo XIII, Encyclical Humanum Genus, n. 31)
Once we look at everything in a calm and objective manner, informing ourselves of traditional Catholic teaching and soberly accepting the facts right in front of us, we realize that a diabolical conspiracy has indeed been carried out against the Catholic Church, and that affirming this does not make us looney or stupid. We are seeing what Our Lady and many others have warned would come to pass – Our Lord’s punishment of our sins. Blessed Montini brazenly wore the ephod; Saint Wotjyla brazenly wore the satanic pallium; Bergoglio dons the insignia of the Patriarch of the World, yet many call him Pope and Vicar of Christ. Others seek canonical jurisdiction from him, hang his portrait in the foyers of their churches and offer the Holy Sacrifice to God in union (una cum) with him. Yet they declare themselves to be Catholics.
There are none so blind as those who refuse to see!
In Hoc Signo Vinces,
The phrase “anti-Semitism” is useless and devoid of any real meaning. I place it in the category with “homophobia” and “Racist” you really should not allow your enemies created you vocabulary for you.
If you want to be shocked and horrified, read what the Talmud says about our Lord and Catholics in “The Talmud Unmasked” by Father I. B. Pranaitis- Roman Catholic Priest; Master of Theology and Professor of the Hebrew Language at the Imperial Ecclesiastical Academy of the Roman Catholic Church in Old St. Petersburg at:
I have no desire to get into a useless argument over this, but the simple matter of the fact is that there are people who hate others of the Jewish race, regardless of their religion. The name for this in common parlance is anti-Semitism but you may call it by something else.
The removal of Sr Edith Stein from her convent in Germany for being a “non-Aryan” to a convent in Holland, followed by her deportation to Auschwitz by virtue of her Jewish origin, notwithstanding her Catholic religion, is a case in point.
It’s easier to imagine the Pope is an “anonymous” enemy of God and His Holy Church, to borrow Mr Rahner’s heretical idea of the “anonymous Christian” which the Pope and most prelates seem to apply to everyone, in their efforts to destroy the Faith.
Thanks for that link, Peter.
In Hoc Signo Vinces, you have just fallen into their trap. The anti-Semite is their best friend. Read the papers/diary of the father of modern day Zionism, Theodore Herzel. He wrote that the anti-Semite will be our best friend. The reason being is that anyone looking into or questioning what these demons(Talmudic jews) are doing, they will play the anti-Semite card. It works every time, just ask Patrick J. Buchanan. Stop using the word “hate”. The homo-mafia, which the jews fund and control, have hijacked that word, to use against us. Stop using their propaganda words. jews are revolutionaries against Christ, his Holy Catholic Church, nature, the family, and the established order of things. read e. Michael Jones’ book, “the revolutionary jew and its impact on world history”. Edith Stein has nothing to do with this.Zero!
Thank you, Peter Lamb. Your response now makes we wonder whether Bergoglio is a victim of MK Ultra-like mind control.
Are you sure he’s not? That is to say, a Spanish or Portuguese Jew who converted outwardly to Christianity in the late Middle Ages so as to avoid persecution or expulsion, though often continuing to practice Judaism in secret.
It’s difficult to say, but he could still have retained a bit of the Conversos gene.
