Orson Scott Card asks for “tolerance” for his views

Illustration for article titled Orson Scott Card asks for “tolerance” for his views

Perhaps this is old news to some (and it might have been covered on io9 main already) but Orson Scott Card has released a statement addressing his views and the call for a boycott on the Ender's Game movie.

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.

I feel bad for those involved in the production of this movie, but I'm definitely not going out of my way to watch this movie in any form, even through piracy or by sneaking in at the theaters. What about you? Does this statement in any way change your mind on Orson Scott Card and whether or not to watch the movie?
