Paganism: Money is Bad, Right?

*Note: this was first published on Pagan Activist, and is also included in my book The Leader Within. These conversations about Pagans and money and do we pay our teachers come up over and over, so I thought this was worth reposting here as it's an important issue for Pagan leaders.
