This NOM board member said gay-accepting government is his 'mortal enemy'; do you want to make him a Hollywood hit?

by Jeremy Hooper

I've never been a big boycott guy. However, I'm actually quite okay with (/fond of) this effort:

Ender’s Game author Orson Scott Card is an anti-gay activist, writer, and board member of the National Organization for Marriage.

Laws against homosexual behavior should remain on the books, not to be indiscriminately enforced against anyone who happens to be caught violating them, but to be used when necessary to send a clear message that those who flagrantly violate society's regulation of sexual behavior cannot be permitted to remain as acceptable, equal citizens within that society.

— Orson Scott Card, “The Hypocrites of Homosexuality,”
Sunstone Magazine, Feb 1990

Do you really want to give this guy your money?

If you are not aware of Card's rhetoric, it goes even beyond the quote above. This National Organization For Marriage board member once wrote Orson-Scott-Carda nasty treatment of Hamlet that portrays the king as evil because he was gay. And in his worst printed turn, Card pointedly declared that "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." This is not someone who has merely voted, strategized, or fundraised against us. This man (i.e. the mind behind this movie) has gone into full-on crazy mode against us, presumably hoping that his readers would follow suit.

I see no way I could, in good conscience, sit back and nom on some popcorn while this person's vision plays out before me. If you can, fine. I simply cannot.
