So I found a different way to do this. It's pretty close to my original
method I had mentioned, but instead of calling $self->auth_required I
changed it to:


Which has the desired effect. Now all I need to do is if a controller
does not require authentication in order to be viewed I override the
auth_required method in that controller to return 0 instead of the
default 1.
