The same issue comes up for me whenever I join any organization or before I vote for a candidate. As a matter of fact, I remember talking to my grandmother about FDR and the fact that she was not looking positively on everything that he stood for. However, she voted for him (as opposed to against Hoover and the following challengers) because she liked most of the things that he stood for and did. She didn't even agree with all of his policies that helped bring us out of the depression, but she was in favor of enough of them to see that help was needed to bring us out of it.
For me, I don't like all of the policies AND programs of the public radio station that I support. But since the prepoderance of it is excellent, I have been sending my membership dues whenever I could afford to.
I don't think that anyone will always agree with any group all of the time. But if you're in favor of much of what they do AND you can afford to, why not help them achieve your mutual goals. And if you can't afford it (or if you can) why not try and help out in other ways? Just a few of my thoughts.
