If you're referring to my reference about Bradbury, he stated that F451 is NOT about government censorship. Rather it is about the dangers of what later became political correctness. In the novel, the people demanded that books be censored because they were offended by racial slurs or content that offended people.
I don't see anyone here saying Card shouldn't be free to say or write whatever he feels like.
I was just clarifying an early comment that may have been misunderstood. It was in my warning about the boycott.

I really would dread seeing a bunch of protesters outside of movie theaters calling people homophobes and bigots as they are taking their children to see this movie. I hope the people who do boycott it do so in an appropriate and respectful manner.
