Re: Orson Scott Card "Please don't boycott my film!"

I try to separate the views from the person. It might still make me at the person, but I can still appreciate the person's talent, so long as their views are not propagated heavily in their works. I guess, from what I hear, the story of Ender's Game does little to propagate his asinine views on the gay issue. I liked his novelization of The Abyss, and it was and will continue to be one of my favorite SF books. None of his politics were in that book. And I hear that the film was not made with his collaboration and nor would he be getting more than the very basic compensation that a writer would get.

By contrast, I'm not for religious films, and I wasn't a huge fan of the not-so-subtle religious message of the first Narnia film.
