I think that you can have any opinion you want, but at least be willing to take the consequences of your opinion. It's like, 'Well, I hope that people will be more understanding,' or what did he say? 'More tolerant of my views.' The quotes that got me about him weren't against gay marriage -- he wanted homosexuality criminalized in the United States. That's what he called for. You want me to be tolerant of you wanting to criminalize homosexuality? Fuck you on your grave, you piece of shit."

-- Broadway legend Harvey Fierstein, on homophobic sci-fi author Orson Scott Card and calls for a boycott of the upcoming movie Ender's Game.
