Damage Reduction
My apologies, I've read several sources and I'm still not clear on this.

Specifically, if a Good Cleric casts Righteous Might and he gains Damage Reduction x/Good
then does an evil dragon's natural attack's negate this since it's natural attack is magical?

Damage Reduction
A good cleric would have DR x/Evil (since it would take an Evil weapon to overcome it).

Damage Reduction - http://www.d20srd.org/srd/specialAbilities.htm:
A creature with an alignment subtype (chaotic, evil, good, or lawful) can overcome this type of damage reduction with its natural weapons and weapons it wields as if the weapons or natural weapons had an alignment (or alignments) that match the subtype(s) of the creature.

So... the answer is no, unless the dragon has the evil subtype (most evil dragons don't).
