Orson Scott Card: Blacklisted for Defending the Family

There’s a price to be paid by countermoonbats with courage enough to stand up for decency and sanity in a culture that is swirling down the toilet. Ask Orson Scott Card.

After pro-homosexual activists promoted an online petition demanding the firing of award-winning speculative fiction writer Orson Scott Card from an upcoming Superman comic anthology, DC Comics confirmed that Card’s portion of the project has been shelved indefinitely.

Here are the goods on the thought criminal:

Card, who is Mormon, sits on the board of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM) and has been outspoken about his opposition to redefining marriage to include same-sex couples.

In an opinion piece for the Mormon Times, he wrote, “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.”

In another commentary for Sunstone Magazine, he wrote, “[G]ay activism as a movement is no longer looking for civil rights, which by and large homosexuals already have. Rather they are seeking to enforce acceptance of their sexual liaisons as having equal validity with heterosexual marriages, to the point of having legal rights as spouses, the right to adopt children, and the right to insist that their behavior be taught to children in public schools as a completely acceptable ‘alternative lifestyle.’”

“It does not take a homophobe to recognize how destructive such a program will be in a society already reeling from the terrible consequences of ‘no-fault’ divorce, social tolerance of extramarital promiscuity, and failing to protect our adolescents until they can channel their sexual passions in a socially productive way,” Card continued. “Having already lost control of the car, we now find the gay activists screaming at us to speed up as we drive headlong toward the cliff.”

For the first time in human history, a society has degenerated to the point that advocating the preservation of children’s innocence and the family unit can get a famous author blacklisted.

Homosexual activists said his views should have disqualified him from being hired in the first place. While his Superman short story was not expected to touch on gay issues, activists argued that to give him a paycheck for his work was tantamount to funding NOM directly.

When Pink Nazis shove, cowards move.

DC’s decision to shelve Card’s portion of the project came after illustrator Chris Sprouse backed out of doing the art for Card’s short story under heavy pressure from gay advocates and the media. “The media surrounding this story reached the point where it took away from the actual work, and that’s something I wasn’t comfortable with,” Sprouse said.

No, standing up to thugs is not always the “comfortable” thing to do. Yet in the long run tyranny isn’t comfortable either — including tyranny run by militant degenerates.

In a statement, DC Comics said the company “fully supports, understands and respects” Sprouse’s decision to abandon the project. They said they would “re-solicit the story at a later date when a new artist is hired.” However, most industry insiders speculate that DC will be in no rush to replace Sprouse as an artist, allowing them to let Card’s story die a quiet death without actually firing him and opening themselves up to a discrimination lawsuit. (It is illegal in the state of New York to fire an employee for his religious beliefs.)

Scott M. Roberts, assistant editor of the online magazine Intergalactic Medicine Show, describes the effect this sort of moonbattery has had on the once adventurous science fiction genre:

“The obsession with correct political belief and expression in art is stultifying the genre as it is necessarily exclusive. We are losing our voice in artificial, forced homogeny posing as tolerance. Propaganda-disguised-as-story drives readers away as agenda takes the place of wonder, excitement, character, and conflict.”

That is to say, political correctness is reducing science fiction to gray, tasteless, lukewarm, toxic mush, exactly as it is doing to every other aspect of our culture.

    The managers at DC comics who shelved his part of the project should be required to go have the “gay experience” just to show their support of gays. After all…how can they be expected to really support the cause if they’ve never experienced the “joy” of being gay?

    A couple of weeks with the rump-rangers on Polk street in San FranFreakShow will give them a whole new perspective on the world. And probably increase the membership for NOM as well.

  2. Comrade J says:

    To paraphrase William Buckley, Heterophobic Gey-stapo claims to want to bring tolerance to “alternative lifestyle”, but then are shocked, offended and can not tolerate lifestyles alternative to theirs.

    On amazon, these fascists are trying to poo poo his books.

  4. Doug says:

    At least (for today) we don’t have to worry so much about the Marxists and other cultural degenerates (gays) dropping in the spread their sick diseased comments….thy’re over at the religion weblogs denouncing the Catholic church or expressing their desire that the new Pope is (in the hopes of all gay-deviants) a NAMBLA Founding “Member.”

  5. Skyfall says:

    I’d say stand up to the faggots now, but they have won the battle for the minds of most Americans.

    This is what you get from caving in and allowing books in grade schools like “Dick Has Two Daddies”, and handing over the teaching of morality to government paid employees (i.e. union teachers).

    We will soon be reaping the benefits of our actions.

  6. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    Rand Paul want’s to get marriage out of the tax code.
    Even so, this still likely wouldn’t stop militant gays from using government to force their perversion onto religion.

    Show your support for the author and go buy one of his books. I did!

  9. Marian says:

    This is terrorism

  10. Jimbo says:

    The faggots can go screw themselves. Oh… that’s what they do anyway. That’s right – I’m supposed to accept butt-f*cking as something normal as a Big Mac.

    This is why I cannot buy enough ammo.

    And I agree with Laurie up top – anyone who supports faggotry should be forced to experience it – bend over and take it, fools.

  11. IslandLifer says:

    I’m with Mike. It’s past time to show your support with your wallet. I hate faggots and always will. I don’t have kids but when I do they will surely know the sickness of faggots before society has any chance of influence. AIDS was a punishment for butt pirates, maybe another disease that can’t be cured will form and wipe out the perverts at a rapid pace.

  12. o0Nighthawk0o says:

    I am a long time fan of Mr. Card. I read, and re read, Ender’s Game and is one of my all time favorites. If you haven’t read it please do. Very good. The Ender’s Game movie is due out this November and I will be seeing it probably more than once. As for DC I would say that I won’t be reading/buying any of their products but I already don’t.

  14. A real capitalist. says:

    Aren’t you people supposed to be hyper-capitalists?

    Clearly, the market has spoken. Those who buy comics were unhappy (you know, the young generations that will never vote Republican, and doesn’t care one tiny bit about gay people?). They said so publicly.

    Therefore, the market dictated the outcome.

    What are you, communists?

  15. A real capitalist. says:

    Or is it that you wanted to change the market outcome in favor of your narrow worldview?

    That wouldn’t be ‘the market’ or the ‘invisible hand’ or ‘capitalism’ at all… what is it you are really unhappy about here?

  16. Jimbo says:

    Liars abound. I hate liars.

    Liars is another reason I buy ammo.

  17. Jodie says:

    I agree with Mike and IslandLifer. One of the best things we can do right now is to provide financial support to those who are standing up for the truth and fighting for what’s right.

  18. Time Masheen says:

    Did a real marxist POS say something? I always slash ignore kool-aid drunk true believers who think they are winning minds and influencing people when they really need to get back to their marxist circle jerk over copies of Das Kapital. On a more fun note there was a metal-hardcore crossover band back in the 80s-Method Of Destruction who had a song entitled Anally Inflicted Death Sentence. Ahahah! Put that in your pipe and smoke it utopian socialist pipedreamers. We don’t play that politically correct shit here and I’m not your comrade so go fvck yourself.

  19. Marauder says:

    DC comics? I use those for asswipe or sell them to saps on feebay while keeping all the choice Marvel comics.

  20. St. Gilbert says:

    Mr. Card says, “It does not take a homophobe to recognize how destructive such a program can be in a society already reeling from the terrible consequences of ‘no-fault’ divorce, social tolerance of extra-marital promiscuity, and failing to protect our adolescents until they can channel their sexual passions in a socially productive way.”

    This is where there is a huge disconnect in “conservative” thought. There is an elephant in the room of sexual degeneracy that goes unnoticed (or is intentionally ignored) by those social conservatives who otherwise rightly oppose same-sex “marriage” and the other issues Mr. Card mentioned. The societal acceptance of artificial contraception, by conservatives and liberals alike, is the link that connects the advance of same-sex “marriage,” no-fault divorce, extra-marital promiscuity, the sexual indoctrination of children, the decline of the family, and abortion. Until pro-life conservatives remove the blinders hiding that reality, everything they claim to oppose will continue unabated. The sterile link between contraception and the relentless advance of sexual immorality in society is well-documented, and it should be obvious, but perhaps only to people with the intellectual honesty to admit it. (Now, the acceptance of artificial contraception also has a cause, which is Liberalism itself, but that is a topic for another time).

    Mr. Card, don’t budge an inch. Don’t cave to these Gadiantons. Not an inch.

  22. Tax Slave says:


    That’s EXACTLY what they do, screw themselves. Duh!

  23. Tax Slave says:


    Didn’t Marvel make the new Green Lantern gay?

  24. the pink lantern says:

    Yea Marvel jumped the shark with the lantern.

  25. I stand with Card. he’s smarter than the rest of the government anyway. LOL!

  26. Peter North says:

    @TaxSlave to get your answer keep your browser open and keep refreshing this page over and over.

  27. facebkwallflower says:

    @ a real capitalist, We know you know the market did not speak so why even bother trying to present it as such. Your so-called market spoke so many times and when the companies adjusted to the market, as you call it, the company took a huge loss from the real market speaking loudly by abandoning the company. We know you know the market did not speak, only thuggery spoke and these publishers will find out to late they lost a big chunk of their real target base. The market no longer comes running back like spurned lovers so a reversal and an offer of rehire will instead be serving divorce papers.

    I didn’t know teh gheys were so covetous of the Superman franchise. Must be the chiseled jaw and big muscles. I wonder if they might fancy something else a little more, like uh, I don’t maybe Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz. Toodles.

    Hey, pay no attention to that Root Hammer guy. Heh. I wondered when auto spell was going to get me. I figured it was going spell it Rotorooter one of these days.

  30. Hans Peter says:

    Just what is “Political Correctness?” Political Correctness is in fact cultural Marxism – Marxism translated from economic into cultural terms. The effort to translate Marxism from economics into culture did not begin with the student rebellion of the 1960s. It goes back at least to the 1920s and the writings of the Italian Communist Antonio Gramsci. In 1923, in Germany, a group of Marxists founded an institute devoted to making the transition, the Institute of Social Research (later known as the Frankfurt School). One of its founders, George Lukacs, stated its purpose as answering the question, “Who shall save us from Western Civilization?” The Frankfurt School gained profound influence in American universities after many of its leading lights fled to the United States in the 1930s to escape National Socialism in Germany.

  31. Mayfly says:

    Did I just stumble onto the redneck capital of the internets? I don’t think I’ve ever seen such a homophobic, narrow-minded group of people in my life. Card may be a good author, but his personal views are those of a bigot who would rather gay people just went away to make him more comfortable. Luckily, people like him (and apparently the patrons of this site) don’t get to dictate their religiously-motivated hate into law. If two people care about/have sex with each other, that is none of your business. The nuclear family is a myth perpetuated as the norm by people who have no grasp of social history. Traditional marriage is all but traditional, homosexuality is present in all cultures at all times (and many species as well), and people like you prove that equal rights for all still haven’t been attained.

  32. Tchhht!!! says:

    “If two people care about/have sex with each other, that is none of your business.”

    That’s right, so why try to make it my business. Keep it to yourself, faggot.

    “…homosexuality is present in all cultures…”

    Correct, mental illness is present in all cultures.

  33. octa bright says:

    The biggest problem is NOT same sex marrage but polyginy. Once you open the defininition of marrage from one man and one woman then any limits are arbitrary. The reason that the traditional marrage model should be supported is it works. If you want to see the results of informal polyginy just go to any big city center.

  34. Harry Callahan says:

    @Maggotfly go to some other page if you don’t like this one. Millions of blogs out there find one that suits your narrow homo-centric worldview.

  35. Carrie says:

    “If two people care about/have sex with each other, that is none of your business.”

    Does this apply to incest amongst consenting adults too? Because I’ve seen plenty of gay and pro-gay rights people insult people that are into incest, and would happily deny them the right to marry. Most get downright furious if any sort of comparison is made between gay sex and incest sex, because they view those people as horrible degenerates. In reality, two consenting adult gay brothers having sex doesn’t hurt anyone anymore than two unrelated gay men having sex does.

    Why is it okay for the gay community to be “bigoted,” but no one else?

    People already tolerate gay sex. The problem is is that the LGBT movement doesn’t want tolerance. They want complete and total acceptance.

    Someone should be free to think gay sex is gross and wrong, just like they should be free to think incest or polygamy is gross/wrong.

  36. depwavid says:

    Mr. Card’s work is usually well-constructed and original. It takes a good bit of intelligence to follow and comprehend. You can’t tell his politics from his writing. Of course, moonbats emote more than they think, so I doubt any of them could grasp his work…

  37. M. Wilson says:

    Enders’ Game and Starship Troopers (by Heinlein) are both on the US Marine Corp reading list for a reason.

    For those who have only seen the movie, the book is much better and portrays the military far more favorably. Highly recommended reading.

  38. Wednesday says:

    Time to add DC Comics to the Conservative Cancellation list. Cancel your subscriptions to their comics–tell them why. Then cancel any and all business with their parent co. Time-Warner, Inc.–again, tell them why.

    I’m calling for a conservative Boycott. We are the majority of earners in the USA. We hold the power of the purse. And whether the degenerate Marxists at the top would ignore our views or not, they cannot ignore the bottom line. Let them try to make their revenues pandering to GLAAD and the like. They will not see a dime from us. Boycott DC Comics & Time Warner.

    Our culture will be better off without the Marxist Media Monopolies anyway. Our kids will be better off reading classics anyway. Our civilization will be better off without pandering to the destructive forces marshalled against it.

    Boycott. Tell them they why.

    Gays tend to be overrepresentated in the arts and entertainment industries. I wonder how many of the artists and writers at DC and Marvel are homosexual? As someone familiar with the comics industry, I can tell you it’s a lot.
