“Ender’s Game” Author Tries To Defend Himself, Saying Gay Marriage Issue Is “Moot”

r-ORSON-SCOTT-CARDEnder’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.”

 

–Orson Scott Card, author of the sci-fi novel End Game in response to a threatened boycott of the film adaptation due to his stated opposition to marriage equality, in a statement released to Entertainment Weekly
