In last Sunday’s Philosophy in Action Webcast (Nov 6th), I discussed working for a minister. The question was:
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?
My answer, in brief:
An atheist shouldn’t want to endorse or assist religion, but that doesn’t preclude secular business relationships with religious believers.
