Orson Scott Card Responds On Gay Marriage And Boycotts

orsonEntertainment Weekly has Orson Scott Card’s response to the Ender’s Game movie boycotts currently being planned, over his board membership of NOM and its attempt to ensure gay marriage in the USA remained illegal.

Orson told them;

Ender’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.

Translation? “I give up. You won.”

Will that be enough? Could it have saved his Superman comic from being buried at DC Comics?
