The Justices of the U.S.
And Their Faith
published on February 10th, 2010
The purpose of this note is to bring to the attention of those who need
to know what we consider a very serious functional anomaly that has
crept in, unnoticed, in the government of the United States of America.
Considering the reality of the Opus Dei phenomena (1), which makes the Dan
Brown's allegations look like child's play, every level headed citizen
of this great Nation should take careful note of this and do what is
within their legitimate and lawful means to neutralize, as much as
possible, what, in effect is, the takeover of the most powerful branch
of the US government. Let us face the reality that, when compared to
the Executive Branch and the Legislative Branch, both of which
are answerable to the voters, the Supreme Court of the U.S. only
answers to God.
The problem we now seem to face is - Which god?
Anyone who may think that this document is anti-Catholic propaganda
should take good note of our position about the Catholic Faith (2) before passing a failed
After a fairly thorough literature search we have found that the
following Justices are Catholic and conservative, however, rumors of
their active Opus Dei membership cannot be confirmed. There are some
family and parish associations with Opus Dei, but nothing else can be
ascertained through what is published in what is accepted as legitimate
No immediate or remote OD tie found.
Anthony McLeod Kennedy
Of this group, he is the most centrist; he has voted in both “liberal”
and “conservative” directions. No immediate or remote OD tie found.
John Glover Roberts
Roberts’ “children reportedly attend an Opus Dei school in Maryland.” (3)
Antonin Gregory Scalia
John Allen, author of a friendly book on Opus Dei, was told that Scalia
is not a member, despite rumors to the contrary. (4) Scalia “attends
St. Catherine of Siena Church in Falls Church, Virginia, St.
Catherine's has a strong Opus Dei presence, complete with Sunday
morning Latin Mass. It is the Washington, DC parish for many Opus Dei
members and cooperators, such as former Senator Rick Santorum. In
addition, his son Paul has been reported to be a priest in the
the Holy Cross, Opus Dei's priestly order, as well as being affiliated
with Fr. Frank Pavone's Priests for Life. (3)
Allen was also told that Thomas is not a member, despite rumors to the
contrary. (4) Thomas’
conversion/return to the Roman Catholic Church was handled by the Opus
Dei "priest to the political stars" John McCloskey, with the
assistance from Paul Scalia (another OD priest, and son of Justice
Other high profile Catholic
Republicans, not on the Supreme Court:
John Allen says:
“The old joke about the Church of England dubbed it the ‘Tory Party at
prayer.’ From an external point of view, it would be easy enough to
draw a similar conclusion about Opus Dei in various parts of the world.
In the United States, links between the Republican Party and certain
members of Opus Dei are well documented. A number of American
conservatives, such as Robert Bork, Robert Novak, and US Senator Sam
Brownback, none of whom are members of Opus Dei, nevertheless were
brought into the Catholic Church through the efforts of Father C. John
McCloskey. In the American press, Supreme Court justices Antonin Scalia
and Clarence Thomas are frequently identified as Opus Dei members.
Though neither man is a member, the fact that it's the most
conservative justices of the Court who attract such speculation says
something. The Opus Dei-affiliated Catholic
Information Center on K
Street in Washington DC has become a crossroads for conservative
Catholics involved in lobbying and public policy on the Hill; the daily
noon Mass sometimes collects a ‘Who's Who’ of that world.” (5)
We must now consider the following statistics:
+ Out of a total of nine US Supreme Court Justices, five are conservative Catholics -
that is 55.6 % of the membership.
+ Out of those five, two have
"too close for comfort" ties with the Opus Dei - that is 22.2 %
of the membership.
+ According to a 2007 survey (6)
there are only 23.9 % Catholics (of every stripe - but mostly center
and liberal) among the adult population in the US
With the clearly established record of infiltration by conservative
Catholics - mostly "closet Opus Dei cases" - in the US security
establishment [CIA and FBI] (7)
it should be easy to see the serious impact the Opus Dei cult has had,
and currently has, on the day-to-day lives of Americans and the long
term impact on national and global affairs.
Imagine the hue and cry that would be raised by Main Street America if
those five gentlemen in the Supreme Court were Muslims, Jews or
Mormons, faith groups which do not have an agenda that comes even close
to that of Opus Dei. (8)
A review of world public servants who have acknowledged being part of
the Opus Dei cult (9)
- a number which, because of their "discretion", must be only the tip
of the proverbial iceberg - should be enough to raise a few red flags
Considering that we firmly believe that:
(a) The Catholic Faith is the most
complete Faith available to man [but not an absolute requirement for
(b) We live it - not just talk about it; and
(c) We wish that everyone would benefit from the richness of its many
....we find that the most
troubling issue in today's world is what we have brought to
light in this document.
Let us pray....
