Card has been an outspoken critic of gay marriage, drawing criticism from some fans. Zeus Comics in Dallas has already decided not carry the print edition of the comic. Here’s an excerpt from the online petition:
He’s written publicly that he believes marriage equality would lead to the end of civilization. He’s also on the board of a notorious anti-equality organization. We need to let DC Comics know they can’t support Orson Scott Card or his work to keep LGBT people as second-class citizens. They know they’re accountable to their fans, so if enough of us speak out now, they’ll hear us loud and clear. Sign and share!
Once they legalize gay marriage, it will be the bludgeon they use to make sure that it becomes illegal to teach traditional values in the schools. Our children will be barraged with the deceptions of the left. Parents will be forbidden to remove their children from the propaganda. Any child with any gender or sexual confusion will be pushed inexorably away from the decision to establish a traditional family.
