I swear to you that this is the first time I heard about the ideo-theological role of that guy, Adolf Stoecker.
Unfortunately I have not the least minimum time in order to describe, at a very elementary level, what I have in mind. I am again reading the anti-semite - ops, pardon! - anti-Jewish works of doc. Martin Luther, and new sides of history are presenting in front of my eyes. Just only think to the link of a Luther raging against the Jews for their calumniation against the mother of Christ, with the sucessive very keen Roman Catholic use of the image of the same mother as symbol of the war against the Reform. Or the usury problem, with the Jews suddenly appointed as the master of the finance by Rome the same, and a doc. Martin Luther unable to see this elementary link......
Probably not only I'll never put here them "black on white", but, as unfortunately it usually happens, I the same will inadvertenly bury them in the coffin of my amnesy inside the cemetery of my mind (I hope at least to post some links about Martin Luther, anti-semitism/anti-Jewry, Holocaust, "good work dogma" etc.) - Not for hobby or sport I usually puts those words at the end of my messages:
"As I have no time, no resources, no money, no support at disposition, it is clear that what I wrote is affected by many errors and uncorrectness. I am not a prostitute lay journalist etc. etc...."
(Words in red to be noticed - especially the final ones related to capitalism and economy)
Adolf Stoecker (December 11, 1835 – February 2, 1909) was the court chaplain to Kaiser Wilhelm [disambiguation needed], a politician, and an German Lutheran theologian who founded one of the first Christian Social Gospel political parties in Germany, the Christian Social Party.
Stoecker was born in Halberstadt, Province of Saxony.
A staunch Protestant, Stoecker was a believer in German kultur Protestantism. His theology was combined with a political philosophy which believed that German culture was being corrupted by materialistic economic dogma. A favorite theme in his sermons and speeches was that the new capitalist system was allowing the rapid centralized accumulation of capital in a small group of individuals, thereby increasing wealth disparities, upsetting social order, and de-Christianizing the German nation. Upset with the dislocating socio-economic effects brought on by rapid industrialization and the new capitalist system, he called for German society to rededicate itself to Christian faith and return to Germanic rule in law and business. Overtime he increasingly laid blame on this cultural change on Jewish capitalists, becoming one of the early investigators of Jewish conspiracy theories, and so becoming one of the early leaders of modern anti-semitic philosophy.
Franckly I am not interested to know if that guy Stoecker was in good faith, was manipulated by Jesuits or not, was under the influence of the "On the Jews and their Lies" works or under the influence of the Black pope or of the Grays of Zeta Reticuli. If the ideological software in his brain didn't allow to him to see the materialist dialectic content of the Council of Trent, well, the problem was for him, not for me.
For me you can chose one of the above possibility, following your personal attitude. I simply see Stoecker as a "black box", i.e. how scientists analyzes phenomena without caring of the 'content' of the object studied. And those (by me put in red) words, are a confirmation of what I saw where (at least it appears to me) no other human brain exercised a minimum of critic.
God faith or not, Stoecker was a perfect agent of the spreading of the Roman Catholicism through economy (helping it diverting the attention from the Roman Catholic essence of the "money-work" exchange using the Jews) and the perfect example on how 'conspiracy' works for the 99% of cases outside the awareness of the agents by her moved:

"...........In Catholic theology, an indulgence is the full or partial remission of temporal punishment due for sins which have already been forgiven. The indulgence is granted by the Catholic Church after the sinner has confessed and received absolution. The belief is that indulgences draw on the Treasure House of Merit accumulated by Christ's superabundantly meritorious sacrifice on the cross and the virtues and penances of the saints. They are granted for specific good works and prayers.
Indulgences replaced the severe penances of the early Church. More exactly, they replaced the shortening of those penances that was allowed at the intercession of those imprisoned and those awaiting martyrdom for the faith.
Abuses in selling and granting indulgences were a major point of contention when Martin Luther initiated the Protestant Reformation (1517).
