(excerpt)Apparently the New York Times forgets what it wrote in 1892 about a faction within the Roman Catholic Church/Vatican, headed by one Miesczyslaw Ledochowski, uncle to the then future Jesuit Order Superior General Wlodimir Ledochowski (b. October 7, 1866, elected Superior General February 11, 1915, retaining that position to his death of December 13, 1942):
Mr. McCain had sought the endorsement of the Rev. John Hagee, a televangelist, for more than a year and finally won it in February, only to have the Catholic League denounce Mr. Hagee for waging “an unrelenting war against the Catholic Church.” Mr. Hagee called it “the Great Whore,” an “apostate church,” and a “false cult system.” The pastor apologized and said his remarks had been misconstrued, a truce was declared and Mr. McCain still welcomed the endorsement.
It is very well understood, however, that
Monacois entirely under the control of Ledochowski, that proud, imperious, and able Pole who made such worlds of trouble in the old Kulterkampf day and who has been able to impose his will very often upon even the present Pope. This powerful man was in a German prison when Pius IX created him a Cardinal in 1875. Next year he was released and banished, and he has since lived in Bismarck , devoting his great wealth and talents to building up a militant Ultramontagne party about him. His wrath at the treatment he received at the hands of Rome has colored all his political views. He has hated both Bismarck Germanyand Italyand has looked unceasingly forward to the time when French bayonets should restore the temporal power of the Vaticanin the old . Roman States
If we assume that this spirited and resolute prelate will shortly be ruling the Church through its nominal head, it becomes a most anxious question how he will accept the existing political conditions of
Europewhich have so radically changed since 1875. The new rulers of the Germans have been at pains to show their desire to abolish the last traces of the Kulterkampf. When the pending Prussian Education bill is passed, the German Catholics will be actually stronger than they were before the May laws. During the last half year these dispatches have frequently reflected the new interest which William and his immediate entourage are displaying in the Polish question. Of course a good deal of this has arisen naturally from the contemplation of the necessity of sooner or later fighting Russia: but even more it represents the effort to allure Ledochowski into friendship with by an appeal to his national sentiment. How far this has succeeded will be, as has been said, a most anxious question. Germany
In any event under this new regime there would be an abrupt cessation of pastorals on Socialistic and labor problems and of poems about St. Thomas Aquinas. We should instead see the
boldly embark upon the troubled waters of European diplomacy, seeking alliances and taking desperate risks upon the fortune in the next war. Vatican

What The New York Times writes now is an insult to the 10s of millions of people murdered by the Ledochowskis' wars- 1st that for Polish independence (WWI), and especially the following war (WWII) for the 'cleansing' of Poland of its Jewish and its more independently minded peoples and so many many more, for the goal of Poland's shift westward for the continuing counter reformation's aim of the wholesale theft of lands from Protestants.
