viti immigration laws don't target anyone by race. Again your way of thinking is being influenced by bias reporting as is the case with the topic at hand

 I will say, IMO a boycott is a bit too far at this point, I do understand the initial reaction. I do disagree with Mr. Card and his LDS backed beliefs, but they are his beliefs. Does anyone really think that an editor would allow Mr. Card to use the first comic book superhero as a political mouthpeice for his outdated beliefs? I think not. I just recently read his work on Ultimate Iron Man and he is a good writer. I think he knows that if he used these characters to voice his opinions, he would be out of the job. I think he can keep his personal feelings seperated from his work. He has figured out how the be a Mormon AND a Democrat at the same time.

Tevii...yeah...lucky me that I didn't piss you off...LOL.  I didn't insult you.  I merely used a film quote which accurately described your post.  Men are not brainwashed by religion.  Men are brianwashed by those who interpret those religion's messages and writings.  But thanks for rescuing me from your divine wrath.  i was about to toss myself off the 4th floor.

 A large part of what makes Card an effective spokesperson against homosexuals is that he is a well known author.  He is choosing to use his popularity and writing ability to not merely have an opinion but attempt to draw others into sharing that opinion. 

I have no doubt that his Superman arc will have nothing to do with his opinion about the wrongs of being gay.  However buying the comic will support his career and thus maintain his anti-gay soapbox.  I have zero desire to do that even if the story were amazing.  Looking at his take on Ultimate Iron Man I feel preety sure it will be less than memorable. 

If Card were an outspoken advocate of Jim Crow laws and racial segragation I bet people would feel a little sick buying the book (which is big progress really) I hope that someday soon people will feel the same way about Cards current stance.

He's a great writer, protesting or boycotting based on his anti-gay beliefs is the same as being that way towards someone who is gay.  Especially if it doesn't come through in thier work, and I've read pretty much every novel he's written and this anti-gay banner he has is actually news to me, but I don't make it a point to discover artist's personal beliefs for the very reasons that it A: usually doesn't affect their work as an artist if they are talented and B: usually doesn't affect the way I view thier work if they are talented.  Also, most deeply religous people are anti-gay, they just aren't aggresive or hateful about it and I doubt OSC is either. 

I've never cared, gay, straight, whatever you wanna push your meat into go right ahead I only care about good or bad, what I like or what I don't like when it comes to any and all forms of entertainment.

 Boycotting a comic book because the writer has different views than you is, well, stupid.  Not reading it is up to you.  I'm quite sure I don't agree with all of Alan Moore's views (actually, I think he is bat #$%@ crazy) but I sure enjoy his stories.  

This is like someone boycotting a comic book because the writer is pro homosexuality.  Just read your funny book and try to keep an open mind.  I have to disagree though, comic geeks are not the most open minded...they are the most homophobic from my experience.

I've posted two, very anti-boycott posts, and neither has made it up.  Why is that?  Are the webmasters here picking and choosing what THEY want to see, instead of everyone's posts?
