"...the Jesuit law was from the beginning a battle to fight ultramontanism....." [Wikipedia]

It is maybe an unspoken, opportunist religious motivation the one at the base of the today's obsession on the "human rights"? 

If the "human rights" of the Jesuits (the "right" to do the religious war of Counter Reformation, to infiltrate, manipulate and subvert countries, governments, etc.?) are touched, "human rights" must become the most sacred concept of any political idea and transformed in a religious concept?

Interesting that till the moment when Germany was roughly fifty-fifty papist and protestant nation, till 1945, there was the opposite fashion, of the denial of "human rights". After 1945 there was a changing of ideology, but there was no more a strong Protestant Germany who could have advocated  and utilized for herself the "human rights".....

Denying human rights via denying the existence of the ones who could advocate them?

Jesuit law [Wikipedia]

The Jesuit law of 4 July 1872 was part of the Kulturkampf and forbade the offices of the Jesuit Order on the soil of the German Empire.

Content and consequences

The focus of the cultural action was due to State laws. Besides the so-called pulpit paragraph, the Jesuit law was one of the few laws in force in the kingdom level.

Unlike the introduction of civil registry offices or the enforcement of state supervision (surveillance law school) in Prussia, the Jesuit law was from the beginning a battle to fight ultramontanism, but the Jesuits were the spearhead of this movement. This followed the public campaigns of the real Old Catholics (*)  and the German Protestant Association. The Liberal majority in the Reichstag cause a draft of the Bundesrat, that is of the Chancellor Otto von Bismarck, was exacerbate. On 4 July the law that affected the operation of the Jesuit Order and related
was proclaimed. It banned all religious houses on German soil, and authorized the government to pronounce travel restrictions against individual Jesuits as well against foreign Jesuits who at any time were to be expelled from the Reich. Although the culture war was pushed forward by the Liberals, it was rejected by individual politicians such as Karl Biedermann [1], Ludwig Bamberger, Eduard Lasker as the Jesuit law as an exception from the law because it intervened heavily in the fundamental rights and blatantly discriminated against a single group. The majority of Liberals voted Bismarck, however, too rough, when he announced to the Reichstag: "we do not go to Canossa - neither physically nor mentally."

The law remained even after the substantial completion of the Kulturkampf in the 1880s into force. As a consequence, the Centre Party and other organizations [2] demanded again and again in vain for the repeal of the law. Inadvertently the continued validity of the law contributed to  strengthen the cohesion of the Catholic milieu.

Only in 1904 the law was eased in 1917 and abolished. The motives  were due to concessions to the Centre Party, which now was indispensable for the formation of the government.

["....Inadvertently the continued validity of the law contributed to  strengthen the cohesion of the Catholic milieu.....": but this was a great lesson of strategy by Jesuit order, then implemented in the same Fascist Italy. Not for nothing SJ Giovanni Sale in his book "La chiesa di Mussolini"  says that the  sector of the Italian anti-fascism the most repressed in the twenties was the Popular/papal party ("...In fact the cities the most hit by Fascist violence were the ones where the PPI [Partito Popolare Italiano - avles] was having the greatest following among the Catholic masses and was supported by the many Catholic organizations..." page 182). Mussolini was a tool of Jesuit order, in the sense that they re-created in the religious-ideological Italian laboratory of the post war another "Bismarck", who had the task to hit with violence the popular Roman Catholicism in order to teach it to the first elementary principles of the  Ultramontanism (diffidence and hostility towards secularism and autonomy from the church). Then in Slovenia, with the "Cedermaci" etc. all this Jesuit strategy knew simply the apotheosis. Don't have doubts from where the traditional sense of enmity the Italians have  for the state is born and who is the true religious beneficiary...(see my series "INSIDE THE MIND OF ROME"...].

".....The term Old Catholic Church is commonly used to describe a number of Ultrajectine Christian churches that originated from Catholics after the Pope declared certain doctrines within the Roman Church. The Old Catholic Church remained faithful to the original teachings of the Church and the Roman Church split from the Old Catholic Church over certain doctrines, most importantly that of Papal Infallibility. These churches are not in communion with the Holy See of Rome, but their Union of Utrecht of Old Catholic Churches is in full communion with the Anglican Communion[1] and a member of the World Council of Churches.[2] ........"
