Letter: Traditional marriage in danger? No, only hate, fear
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2013, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

OK, this I don't understand, and apparently neither does Travis W. Jones ("Florists, jewelers can't keep up; 'traditionals' suffering," Forum, Dec 28): How does allowing gay marriage destroy "traditional marriage"?

Maybe the feeling is similar to saying that allowing people in blue sweaters to have a driver license will lower sales of Ford F150s. No logic anywhere on this, as near as I can tell. No, "traditional marriage" is not in jeopardy; however, prejudice, fear and hate are.
