From Chick-fil-A to Amazon, Why Companies Take a Stand on Social Issues

Last week, billionaire Amazon founder Jeff Bezos and his wife MacKenzie pledged $2.5 million to help pass a referendum on same-sex marriage in Washington State. With the donation, the Bezoses became the largest public financial backers of gay rights in the country — and the liberal answer to Chick-fil-A president Dan Cathy, who made waves two weeks ago when he affirmed his company’s opposition to gay marriage.
