Separation of Church and State: Constitutional Policy in Conflict 21
It is not accidental that two more conservative Republicans with religious right beliefs were
chosen recently by President George W. Bush. Both Roberts and Alioto were former Federal
Circuit Appellate Court Justices with reputations for supporting conservative values and the side of
corporate institutions in their rulings. In addition, their education and religious support of the
Catholic Right Opus Dei Society is fact. Further, Justice Scalia is also a supporter of Opus Dei
Doctrine, has a son who is an Opus Dei priest, and Scalia has influenced Justice Thomas to join him
in this support of Opus Dei philosophies (Cocozzelli 2006, Part Two). The Opus Dei Society is one
of the Catholic Right advocacy Groups that blatantly expresses the highest regard, almost reverence
toward wealth, economic power, and close State and Church ties (Cocozelli 2006, Part Three).
The U.S. Presidency, Neo-conservatives, and the Christian Right connections:
It is difficult to know whether President George W. Bush joined forces with neo-conservatives
because he either followed, had knowledge of, respect for, or already believed in political
philosophies taught by German philosopher Leo Strauss, an important Professor of Political
Science at the University of Chicago during the 50’s and 60’s, who died in 1973. Strauss wrote
numerous books on his understanding of philosophies. Strauss taught and wrote about moral
behavior and the political, which are the philosophies that Neo-cons [new conservative
Republicans] live by (Mason 2004; Xenos 2003; Boyle 2003; Hersch 2003; Drury 1999).
Drawing the connection between Christian Right activists and Straussian Neo-cons, both of
which President Bush 43 affiliates with, is easier than perceived to be, because they all have a
common goal: Government is the tool to redeem morality in society by making God’s laws
prevalent over American society.
