Someone kind of ask if my business had a stance on a current issue, and I always wonder, why?

Why do businesses have stances not at all related to their product or service. My business should support or oppose issues related to trapping, wildlife control, animal laws, and business laws, but why should my service have any opinion on something like presidential candidates or gay marriarge? I havent seen many gay raccoons asking for marriage licenses, so why would my business care?

I just hate when my choice of cookie, sandwich, or shampoo has a statement on anything other than the companies goals.

So, I keep business and personal seperate as much as possible, but what about you guys?

There is a big difference in doing work with someone you disagree with vs helping them do something your faith considers wrong. For example i would do work for a gay couple and even patronize their business but i wouldnt participate in their marriage in any way. If i only did work for people that i consider non sinners i would have no customers but i also wouldnt help someone do something i consider wrong.

Good point Tom. Overall, my dealing with gays of both sexes has been as normal as dealing with straights. The only thing that I have

noticed in many cases is that when dealing with two gals, one will be perfectly normal and talkative while the other one will have a

frown and look at you like she can read your mind. I had a gay rehab nurse after my heart attack and besides being a top notch Iron

Man, she was a phenomenal help to all the rehab patients. Her partner also worked at the hospital in accounting, I believe, and I

don't ever remember her smiling. I wonder if being allowed to marry will change things. I have an idea that it probably won't. As far

as politics goes, I have very strong opinions which, surprisingly, I have been able to keep to myself. I never ever watch the news

unless our company is on it and that helps immensely!

I don't care what sex, gender, race anyone is. If they've got a handful of cash I will gladly relieve them of it. I've nothing against gays, one of my friends is one. But I don't want to see two men doing anything intimate together, women yes, but not men! laugh
I'm not religious, but when I'm called to remove moles from a graveyard I always make sure that the person in charge thinks I'm as devout as devout can get, I just find it helps business to mould yourself into whatever you need to in order to ensure the customer is happy and will recommend you.....that's my take on things.

I'll work for everyone, no matter if I agree with them or not. If I disagree with their beliefs I see it as taking money away from their causes. Ever been paid with a check that had the HSUS emblem on it? Then get referrals from them too? And no I didn't tell them lies and fantasies about it going off to play with Bamby and Thumper.

Where I am at New England they don't ask for my opinions. They just want the work done. It must be a California thing.

I have galatians 2:20 on my website and if asked what i believe i will share what i do...i believe in a husband of one wife and i believe that Jesus is the Son of God and he died on a literal cross and rose again the third day defeating sin....

If they dont want my belief dont ask for it...but if they dont want me to work for them cause of my beliefs then i am fine with that....

I am my business so God is at the forefront of it.

If they're asking what your business' opinion, they probably have an agenda you could be looking at some cameras coming your way.

IMO, as a professional I wouldn't reveal anything that does not support my business: favorite sports teams, brand of motorcycle, politicians, etc. Your brand should only promote what you can do for your clientele...who is anybody with dough.

I was taught that business should be separate from personal life. Looks like they're trying to drag the two together. Whether you answer or not is your decision, but I would make it clear that these are my personal views and have nothing to do with our transaction.

The 2 female supreme court justices performed gay marriage ceremony, but did not recuse themselves. Their votes to overturn the states right to regulate marriage led to the victory. Oathbreakers, liars, activist, un-elected lawyers in black robes making laws for 360 million people. Add to this judicial mess, an Marxist executive branch, and a do-nothing legislative congress. DC is a vile nest of evil.

My advice to a business owner is to behave like a retarded deaf and dumb person on the job. Just do the job, collect the money, then scoot. If asked a question not related to the job just roll your eyes, let out a hearty "gahilk" and start scratching yourself.

I am a little surprised at some of the responses.

If big business, which should be neutral, since they are an extension of their shareholders, and their shareholder base is too diverse to definitively side with an issue one way or the other, can take sides in these political issues then a closely held little company has a right and obligation to do the same. Else we find ourselves in the boat we are in now.

That being said I would work for someone with opposing views because I don't see anywhere in the Bible where I shouldn't, but the opposite. We are supposed to hate sin and love sinners.

Bob, over the course of 51 years as a voter, I have made a complete 180 more times than I care to count. I am not going to get into

specifics but there was a time when the Democrats were all going to heaven and those rich Republicans were all going to heck.

Somewhere along the way, they traded places. My opinion on war is etched in stone. If we don't go "All In," then we stay "All Out!"

The famous quote that, "All of southeast Asia is not worth one American life," is also true of Russia, the middle East, and most

of the rest of the world.

Perhaps instead of "opinion" you are referring to the "core values" or "mission statement" of the business.
