Interestingly enough this word has more than just the well known meaning.  Be honest, when you hear the word Jesuit  you think of Jesus or a Roman Catholic.  Am I right or am I right?

Well... I found out this evening that the word Jesuit has a derogatory definition as well.  It can be used to define a  crafty, intriguing, or equivocating person.  I find this fascinating.  I'm not sure I would use it in a conversation as I think it could be understood to be derogatory about Catholicism to which my motto is "to each his own" and therefore I try not to denigrate it or anything I don't think I know enough about.
