Comment from a thread on Metafilter – completely unsubstantiated but I know some of my network knows Jesuits and Franciscans – be interesting to see if there’s any truth:
I have a friend who’s a member of the Jesuit order and a teacher. They’re not saying anything publicly. They’re not making statements yet. But my friend says this: the Jesuit order is fucking furious about how the Church is handling this. Like, schism-level furious. And he also says (although this is less credible for me) that the bulk of the Franciscans are similarly angry. Take this for what it is worth, which is little. But even so, it’s interesting to consider.
