During high school public speaking class, you are forced to argue one side of a debate, whether or not you actually agree with it. This exercise opened my mind to more effectively analyzing both sides of any debate in order to form the most educated opinion possible. If you understand the other side’s argument inside and out, you’re more equipped to respond to their assertions.
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.
