Something missing with St. Thomas More Society

I wonder if separating one’s faith from one’s work is Catholic. Apparently Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia (CR, Oct. 28) thinks it is. He said as a lawyer he would uphold an intrinsic evil (i.e., abortion) if the evil was “constitutional.”

The way I see it if a job required me to deny my faith I would have to refuse taking the job. That was St. Thomas More’s position and it cost him his head. Yet the St. Thomas More Society awards Justice Scalia their “Man for all Seasons Award.” What am I missing?
