I thought that one of the most treasonous acts in this country is to advocate that the government be overthrown. Isn’t there a law against this? If so, someone should throw Orson Scott Card in jail for treason. If you don’t know him, OSC is a science fiction writer. He has been banned from our household for a while now because he absolutely hates and detests glbt people. He claims he doesn’t, but he does. Period.
I just got an email from Jody, at doorq.com about the latest antics of this homohater. This isn’t the first time that Card has written against gays and lesbians. But this time, he has turned rabid. And he advocates for overthrowing the government. He doesn’t seem to be very smart, either.
He states, in a piece he wrote for the Mormon Times:
The first and greatest threat from court decisions in California and Massachusetts, giving legal recognition to "gay marriage," is that it marks the end of democracy in America.
These judges are making new law without any democratic process; in fact, their decisions are striking down laws enacted by majority vote.
Interesting. Maybe O. Scott Card should stop writing sci fi (including this current ‘article’) and start reading a bit of history. Someone should probably tell him that the court system is as much a part of our democracy as the rest of it. I suggest first he read the Constitution which sets up our democratic court system.
I also find it interesting his statement about marriage:
Here’s the irony: There is no branch of government with the authority to redefine marriage. Marriage is older than government. Its meaning is universal: It is the permanent or semipermanent bond between a man and a woman, establishing responsibilities between the couple and any children that ensue.
"Permanent or semipermanent"???? What the hell is a "semipermanent bond?" I wonder if Mr.
Homohater Scott Card is divorced?
And like the rest of the anti-gay crusaders, he brings up the children:
There is no natural method by which two males or two females can create offspring in which both partners contribute genetically. This is not subject to legislation, let alone fashionable opinion.
I wonder if Mr. Scott Card has thought about what his words mean to two straight married people who use ‘artificial’ means to have their children? From his ‘article’, it appears he has not or will not consider this (he is a Mormon, so maybe it is against Mormon beliefs???).
And here is his treasonous statement:
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…If America becomes a place where our children are taken from us by law and forced to attend schools where they are taught that cohabitation is as good as marriage, that motherhood doesn’t require a husband or father, and that homosexuality is as valid a choice as heterosexuality for their future lives, then why in the world should married people continue to accept the authority of such a government?
As I said, Mr. Scott doesn’t seem to be very bright. He can remove his kids from public school and take them to the nearest Mormon school and have them taught all about alien planets and that Jesus visited North America (apparently by U.F.O.).
And finally, here is his threat to our government (I’ve underlined and bolded):
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.
And who exactly is a danger to our democracy? Me getting married, or Orson Scott Card stating that he will destroy our government? I hope that someone will alert the appropriate people in the government that this man is a real threat to our democracy. You have to wonder how OSC will destroy the government? And all of us had better be worried because after he destroys it, he wants to replace it with his brand of government–possibly the Mormon States of America, with him as dictator?
So the American Family Association called for a boycott of McDonalds. How about a boycott of all things Orson Scott Card? He is a menace. He is a danger. And no publishing company should be associating himself with this guy.
