The goal of the Illuminati is the creation of a New World Order and the eradication of "organized religion." Before attacking Islam, in what is now called the "War on Terror", their first victim was the Catholic Church. Ever since the advent of the Italian Carbonari, a subversive Masonic group headed by Giuseppe Mazzini, who is believed to have succeeded Adam Weishaupt as head of the Illuminati, there was a conspiracy to hijack the Vatican and install a Pope of their own. The plot took place through the person of Cardinal Rampolla, a member of the notorious O.T.O. of Aleister Crowley, the godfather of 20th century Satanism. Although Rampolla's attempt to become Pope was foiled, he initiated a chain of succession that resulted in Vatican II and the current reigning popes, representing the full infiltration of the Catholic Church by Masons and occultists.
