LIKE HELL THEY ARE!

The Asshat used his money to pass PropH8, and deny our brothers and sisters Marriage Equality in Hawaii before that.

He also swore in writing that he was try to demolish our Government if it ever recognized Marriage Equality for it's Citizens. That's a promise to commit treason against the United States of America.

LIKE HELL THEY ARE "IRRELEVANT" !!!!

Don't know why, he most probably hates you. He's full of hate. It's quite infectious and never stays focused on just one topic.

Card is a Mormon, and his views are in line with those of his church. When the Mormon church changes its policy regarding gays, the same way it changed its views regarding whether African-Americans could get into heaven (this happened after the Civil Rights Movement), then Card will most likely change his views as well.

It's unfortunate that he holds this opinion, but I like his writing and I'm looking forward to the movie.

It was a great book. Doubt the movie will make a hit with this generation unless they strip it down.

Your perspective is that of an outsider who does not have to suffer the direct effects of his actions.

I won't give him one more cent to hurt me with.

They can forget about MY money, and I'm a rabid sci-fi fan. I couldn't care less if Card has already been paid for Ender's Game, and that a boycott won't stop him from receiving that money.

I've got a list of reasons that a boycott will keep him from getting MORE money, and these reasons conveniently already have names:

Speaker for the Dead
Xenocide
Children of the Mind
Ender's Shadow

And so on. So by all means, pay to see "part 1" if you want Card paid for "part 2" or "3", etc.

The tragic irony in all this is that one the underlying themes of the Ender stories is the ability to find common ground with those who are "alien" to you. Card even coined a series of terms describing the different levels of "alienness" that can separate intelligent beings.

With all his focus on reaching out and communicating with those who have inherent differences from yourself, it's a damn shame that this bastard couldn't apply his own philosophy to his own species.

Of course the author is important. The author was paid for the rights to make a movie based upon the book. The maker of the movie will want to recoup those funds so anyone buying a ticket to see the movie is helping to pay the author.

A boycott is meant to also tell movie-makers that future movies based upon Card's books may not find an audience so don't bother putting more money in Card's pocket.

Oh give it a rest, SniKKKers. We know this gets you hot because it's about the 18th time you've commented on it. Can’t you find another way to wallow in your joy, or is your vibrator once again in the repair shop?
