Orson Scott Card

Nat’l Organization for Marriage Just Keeps Adding the Crazies


Need one more reason to discount the National Organization for Marriage? You know, besides this? Then how about NOM chief Maggie Gallagher welcoming her hatred equal Orson Scott Card, who just joined the organization’s board. Who’s Card, you ask?

He’s the science fiction writer and Mormon Times columnist filled with idiot logic. For instance, here’s him explaining why us gays even want marriage rights:

The dark secret of homosexual society — the one that dares not speak its name — is how many homosexuals first entered into that world through a disturbing seduction or rape or molestation or abuse, and how many of them yearn to get out of the homosexual community and live normally.

It’s that desire for normality, that discontent with perpetual adolescent sexuality, that is at least partly behind this hunger for homosexual “marriage.”

And Card also has a tendency, Box Turtle Bulletin points out, to call for the overthrow of government (if Prop 8 were to have failed): “Regardless of law, marriage has only one definition, and any government that attempts to change it is my mortal enemy. I will act to destroy that government and bring it down.”

Surprised we didn’t see him at any of the teabagging parties.

Meanwhile, you might recognize Card as the guy who writes obsessively about young boys, with this type of imagery. He’s also the guy who, so afraid of homosexuals(!!!), has no problem expressing his affection for other dudes, as seen above in a photo from Kotaku.
