An early boycott for Orson Scott Card’s book-to-movie adaptation Ender’s Game is in the works due to Card’s past homophobia.
Card has responded to the boycott thusly:
Enderâ€™s Game is set more than a century in the future and has nothing to do with political issues that did not exist when the book was written in 1984.
With the recent Supreme Court ruling, the gay marriage issue becomes moot. The Full Faith and Credit clause of the Constitution will, sooner or later, give legal force in every state to any marriage contract recognized by any other state.
Now it will be interesting to see whether the victorious proponents of gay marriage will show tolerance toward those who disagreed with them when the issue was still in dispute.
An interesting response. It goes a step further than the Church’s response to the rulings by foretelling that Utah will eventually have same-sex marriage, and so, oh well, the battle is over with. “So, get over it, and see my movie!” he says. I wonder if he really expects public discourse to just bend to whatever is most profitable for him.
