In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, sci-fi author, anti-gay activist and National Organization for Marriage board member Orson Scott Card tried to back-peddle on his vicious anti-gay attacks of the past fearing that the bottom-line of the Ender’s Game box office and his share of it revenues will suffer.
Card claims that since the SCOTUS ruling of DOMA made him even more a “loser” than he normally is, everyone should forget all his hateful anti-gay statements including that “gays are pedophiles” and that “gays should be arrested” .
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.
Interesting that Card can’t tolerate our existence but he can equate us not financially supporting him and his hate as intolerant.
