Orson Scott Card is a famous science fiction writer who has been hired by DC Comics to do some writing for “Adventures of Superman.” Apparently gay activists are threatening to boycott DC Comics if they do not fire Card because he is morally opposed to homosex, and is an activist for traditional marriage. Thousands have signed a petition at allout.org for his firing.
So far, DC Comics is defending Card. They released a statement to Fox News saying, “As content creators we steadfastly support freedom of expression, however the personal views of individuals associated with DC Comics are just that – personal views – and not those of the company itself.” Let’s see if they stick to their guns.
Unfortunately, gay activists too often resort to trying to silence all those who disagree with their lifestyle through intimidation. They want tolerance extended to them. Perhaps they should try extending it to others. True acceptance of their lifestyle can only be achieved by the power of persuasion, not intimidation.
