  1. Your first claim can be argued reasonably well but your reasons and assumption are not very good. Maybe make the reason something about how everyone has different political stances and we should accept others with different stances and the assumption should be something like "a person’s political opinions should not hinder them from speaking at BYU". Or possibly make the claim something a little more broad. It is a really good idea to go with though.
