Ender’s Game Creator Hits Back With Statement After Boycott Attempt – What Was That Last Bit?

The Ender’s Game author – Orsen Scott Card – has issued a statement in reply to the attempted boycott campaign, which came about because of his anti-gay views. The statement also comes after last month’s Supreme Court rulings on gay marriage. But what does this last sentence mean?

"Ender'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,” goes the statement. “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."

We’re not sure what that last bit meant. Should gay people and people who support gay rights be nice to people who were against two gay people getting married? Tolerate. Why should they tolerate people who don’t support gay marriage? Oh we don’t know – it’s a confusing statement. In 2009, Scott-Card joined the board of the National Organization for Marriage, which opposes same-sex unions.

These anti-gay views didn’t go down well with the gay community – or at least the gay community that have heard of him – and so a campaign was born to get people to boycott the film version of his famous book: Ender’s Game, starring Harrison Ford. "Hopefully, it will send a message that people who are actively vocal against the LGBT community don't really have a place within the greater geek culture," says Geeks OUT board member Patrick Yacco.
