2. There are a few
here are a few. Of course they have been on record as denying it, and i am no conspiracy theorist, but considering they are liars, and opus dei has a history of courting politicians, the evidence is just so strong.

Hanssen, who could face the death penalty for his acts of treason, is a member of Opus Dei who sends his children to Opus Dei schools. Immediately following that revelation, stories began to surface in the press claiming that FBI Director, Louis Freeh and Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas are also Opus Dei members. Opus Dei denies that Freeh, Scalia and Thomas are members, though Freeh sends his son to the Opus Dei School, The Heights, and Scalias wife is reported to regularly attend Opus Dei functions. Robert Hanssen, Justice Scalia and Louis Freeh also all worship at St. Catherine of Siena parish in Great Falls, Virginia, where the Tridentine Latin Mass is offered, rather than the new order of the Mass declared by Paul VI. Whats unusual in these stories is not that Opus Dei claims members in the corridors of power in this country--a rigidly class-bound organization, Opus Dei has always sought the majority of its members from the upper classes--but that the revelations were made at all, since Opus Dei has always been characterized by a secretiveness that would rival that of the CIA. And yet, the organization runs its own schools and colleges and selects and trains its priests from within its own ranks.
