OSC has written gay characters in a positive light. Ironically he has taken a lot of criticism from LDS readers because he portrays an assortment of characters outside LDS mainstream in positive ways.

This isn't about judging the art, but the artist.

It is a knee-jerk reaction attacking a man at his work based on his affiliations outside his work. This reminds me of the McCarthy era where people in entertainment were branded communists, social deviants and... "homosexuals" (which in its day would blacklist them), only now it's the opposite side of the coin attacking those with contrary viewpoints and attempting to have them blacklisted for it.

Kinda crazy that our tolerance has brought about such intolerance. It's almost as if the homosexual activists have no desire for equality, only domination and special rights.

I guess those bad things that happened in the past were only bad because they happened to the wrong crowd.

Nobody is attacking Mr. Card for his personal; beliefs. People are reacting aginst his polticial movilization against LGBT people.

"In 2008, Card wrote that "[t]here is no branch of government with the authority to redefine marriage," and indicated that a revolution would be appropriate if gay marriage became law. He said:

Because when government is the enemy of marriage, then the people who are actually creating successful marriages have no choice but to change governments, by whatever means is made possible or necessary. . . .

How long before married people answer the dictators thus: 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, 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.[32]" Wikipedia

Hehas the right to express and fight for his beliefs. Those who oppose him have te right to do the same. That is called freedom.
