"I've had no criticism. I've had savage, lying, deceptive personal attacks, but no actual criticism because they've never addressed any of my actual ideas. Character assassination seems to be the only political method that is in use today, and I don't play that game, and you can't defend against it. All you can do is try to offer ideas, and for those who want to listen to ideas, great. For those who simply want to punish you for not falling in line with their dogmas, there's really not much you can do about it."

-- Racist and homophobic extremist Orson Scott Card, author of Ender's Game, adopting a persecution complex for Deseret News.

His movie opens today, but equality supporters are encouraged to skip Ender's Game so your LGBT dollars don't fuel Card's hateful agenda.
