Patrick, thanks so much for this excellent response. I think you are certainly right (and the form of discourse demanded in most American philosophy departments as you know also ends up excluding continental philosophy). By the same token, religion is excluded from political science departments because of the dominant positivism though it does not explain its exclusion from the political theory aspects of that discipline. I do think that an anti-religious bias or ignorance coupled by others with a fear that the discussion of theology might be perceived as proselytizing is a significant factor.
