The Morality of Working for a Minister: Sunday Webcast

By Diana Hsieh

In Sunday's live Philosophy in Action Webcast, I'll be answering a question on the morality of working for a minister that I think might be of interest to some readers of this blog. The question is:

Is working for a minister giving religion moral sanction? As an atheist, I once worked for an ordained minster who was the owner of a gallery. I became his manager when I made it clear that I was an atheist, but that I was a good framing manager. I don't think I gave him a moral sanction for his irrationality by working for him under those terms. What do you think?
Go to www.PhilosophyInAction.com on Sunday at 8 am PT / 9 am MT / 10 am CT / 11 am ET to watch me answer this question live and join in the text chat.

Note: The web site isn't yet up because I've not yet taken off the bubble wrap! It will be ready on Sunday morning.

You can read the full announcement for this week's webcast on my blog NoodleFood.
