I called 202-334-2000 and explained what information I wanted and was transferred a couple of times and finally was able to ask the lady on the phone why they would give respectability to a group that either ignores or hates logic, science, and the scientific method and she stated that they were checked out and that they were a respectable philanthropic organization that supports the science she then gave me the following URLs to prove her point.

She also stated that allowing them the use of the facility does not give them any more respectability than they already have.

So now I wonder how much extra money they are paying the Academy for the use of their facilities.
