The University of Utah has rejected criticism of a quiz given to students which asked them to rank the “best” argument against gay marriage.
The question was included on a test for international students taking a Public Speaking class at the university in Salt Lake City, nearby the HQ of the Mormon Church.
The test asked students to evaluate the best arguments for a number of topics. For example, a question on raising the speed limit including the not-very convincing “I like to drive fast” and “Studies show no significant increase in crash risk with higher speed limits”.
However, one of the questions took some students by surprise, asking for the best reason that “gay marriage should be prohibited”.
