What do the Jesuits and Oprah have in common?

Whether you're an Oprah fan or not, you have to admit that it's pretty cool that she picked a Jesuit author for her latest Book Club book. Fr. Uwem Akpan, SJ wrote this series of 5 short stories each set in a different African country and tackling some of the most difficult topics from poverty to child slavery to genocide. Each story is written from a child's perspective.

Fr. Akpan is a Jesuit from the East Africa Province who also studied at Creighton University and Gonzaga University before returning to his home.

The Jesuits are the biggest and most brutal mafia on this planet. They have killed Christian protestants during the Inquisition, they have killed millions of Buddists, Muslims, Hindus, Jews. They financed Hitler etc, etc. They run the world bank, the UN, CFR, WHO, the FED. They ARE the mafia.
