I have known three Opus Dei members. Two were obsessed zealots one with psychiatric disorders ( whom Opus Dei recognized and was sent for pastoral assistance). One was as you say a "plain Vanilla Catholic" One was a vulnerable person who needed to belong to something and be special. Opus Dei filled that need.

I rank Opus Dei along with the Liberation theologists. Fringe types. Both OD and LT's are perilously close to cults...

I wouldn't exactly call the basis of you opinion very sceintific. Listen, any religious organization is going to attract oddballs. My point is that Opus Dei, is primarily a service organization, and the people who run it are actually pretty mainstream. What I did for them was give art lessons to underprivledged kids in the Bronx.
