'Ender's Game' coming to theaters; wonder if NOM will get a screen credit

by Jeremy Hooper

EndersgameHarrison Ford, Abigail Breslin, Sir Ben Kingsley, and assorted others are gearing up to shoot the film version of Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game:

Harrison Ford & Abigail Breslin Join ‘Ender’s Game’ [Screen Rant]

Why is this of interest, you ask? Well, because this is the same Orson Scott Card who sits on the board of the National Organization For Marriage, who wrote a nasty treatment of Hamlet that portrays the king as evil because he was gay, and who pointedly declared "any government that attempts to change [marriage] is my mortal enemy" while stating his intent to "destroy that government and bring it down, so it can be replaced with a government that will respect and support marriage, and help me raise my children in a society where they will expect to marry in their turn." Hard for some of us to separate his fiction work from his nonfiction advocacy (regardless of how fictional that advocacy may be).

So what say you: Will you see this movie? Does it matter to you that someone else (director Gavin Hood) wrote the screenplay? Will you support a man who quite viciously opposes your civil rights? Or is this one Game you will end before it ever begins?
