Card responds to Enderís Game boycott

0

Very recently a LGBT group announced that they were going to boycott the upcoming Ender’s Game because of author Orson Scott Card’s stance on same-sex marriage and gay rights. Card declared to Entertainment Weekly that the gay-marriage issue is moot because of the Supreme Court rulings.

Card’s full statement is as follows:

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.
