Ender’s Game Boycott

I first read the book “Ender’s Game” in college and I loved it.  The story was intense and gripping.  The characters have depth, flaws and are transformed by their experiences.  I went on to read many other books by Orson Scott Card which I also enjoyed.  When I heard about the film adaptation of Ender’s Game I couldn’t wait to go see it!

Recently several friends informed me of something incredibly disappointing, which I confirmed with online sources.  It turns out that Orson Scott Card is a raging homophobe.  So now I am boycotting the film and any future works by OSC.  I cannot in good conscience support someone who publicly espouses such hateful ideas.  I’m not the only one either.
