If you’re close to me, you probably know my politic leanings. If you’re don’t know me well, you may be in the dark. For now, I’m going to keep it that way- I hope that not knowing which side I actually support will encourage you to keep an open mind as you read. I think it’s important to play devil’s advocate when addressing political and social issues, so hopefully I veiled my actual opinion well enough
For some people, business and politics are like oil and water- they can’t mix. For others, the two naturally go hand-in-hand.
Take Chick-Fil-A for instance. Many people don’t know that they routinely donate to anti-gay organizations like Focus on the Family and the Family Research Council.
Whether you believe these organizations are worthwhile or not is your choice. But the fact is that Chick-Fil-A is using revenue generated through their successful business model to support an agenda that they believe in.
