Yesterday, Tim3P0, r3v, and I went to visit a local museum here in San Jose with a nice collection of Egyptian artifacts. Â It was a decent little place, part of a neat campus of ancient Egyptian style buildings and great vegetation. Â I’m still torn over whether or not it was right for us to go, as the museum is owned and operated by the Rosicrucians, a spiritual group somewhere between Scientology, Gnostic Christianity, Freemasonry, and New Age-y things. My justification to myself is that I was able to get some information about the group for future research and writing on the topic for the blog and/or podcast.
How do you approach situations like this? Do you think twice about paying for an event when you know the money will go to a cause you don’t agree with?
