Louise M. Rachel Guido DeVries. The last-named column features personal reviews of movies, books, and restaurants in the greater Greensboro area, in addition to a variety of other topics. Since Card has written a column for the Mormon Times. Card's vocal opposition to same-sex marriage and other views on homosexuality led to a boycott of the film version of Ender's Game  — a development which itself received criticism.
Describing himself as a political liberal  and moral conservative,  Card's ideals concerning society—as well as foundational themes within his fiction—are described as communitarian. But on economic matters, I'm a committed communitarian. I regard the Soviet Union as simply state monopoly capitalism.
It was run the way the United States would be if Microsoft owned everything. Real communism has never been tried! I would like to see government controls expanded, laws that allow capitalism to not reward the most rapacious, exploitative behavior. I believe government has a strong role to protect us from capitalism. A vocal supporter of the U. Card became a member of the U. Democratic Party in and decided he was a Moynihan Democrat.
As of at least he continued to call himself a democrat. In an August essay, presented as an "experiment" in fiction-writing called "The Game of Unlikely Events",  Card described an alternative future in which President Barack Obama ruled as a " Hitler - or Stalin -style dictator" with his own national police force of young unemployed men; Obama and his wife Michelle would have amended the U.

Constitution to allow presidents to remain in power for life, as in Nigeria , Zimbabwe , and Hitler's Germany. Card has publicly declared his opposition to homosexuality and same-sex marriage. In a essay he wrote that " laws against homosexual behavior should remain on the books, not to be indiscriminately enforced", but to "send a clear message that those who flagrantly violate society's regulation of sexual behavior cannot be permitted to remain as acceptable, equal citizens within that society".
The goal of the polity is not to put homosexuals in jail. The goal is to discourage people from engaging in homosexual practices in the first place, and, when they nevertheless proceed in their homosexual behavior, to encourage them to do so discreetly, so as not shake the confidence of the community in polity's ability to provide rules for safe, dependable marriage and family relationships. In May Card further wrote that since the US Supreme Court had ruled those laws unconstitutional in , he has "no interest in criminalizing homosexual acts".
Oddly enough, even as I am attacked by some as a homophobe, I am attacked by others as being too supportive of homosexuality, simply because I cannot see individual homosexuals, in or out of my books, as anything other than human beings with as complex a combination of good and evil in them as I find within myself. In my own view, I am walking a middle way, which condemns the sin but loves the sinner. In a opinion piece in the Deseret News he wrote that "no matter how close the bonds of affection and friendship might be within same-sex couples , there is no act of court or Congress that can make these relationships the same as the coupling between a man and a woman.
Card has also expressed his opinion that paraphilia and homosexuality are linked. In , he claimed that it is a "myth that homosexuals are ' born that way ' ", noting that "if there is a genetic component to homosexuality, an entire range of environmental influences are also involved. In Card's novella Hamlet's Father , which re-imagines the backstory of Shakespeare's play Hamlet , Card was accused of directly trying to link the king's pedophilia with homosexuality. The novella prompted public outcry and its publishers were inundated with complaints.
Hamlet's father, in the book, is a pedophile, period. I don't show him being even slightly attracted to adults of either sex. It is the reviewer, not me, who has asserted this link, which I would not and did not make. In , Card was selected as a guest author for DC Comics 's new Adventures of Superman comic book series,  but controversy over Card's views on homosexuality led illustrator Chris Sprouse to leave the project  and DC Comics to put Card's story on hold indefinitely. In July , one week after the U.
Supreme Court issued rulings in two cases that were widely interpreted as favoring recognition of same-sex marriages, Card wrote in Entertainment Weekly that the gay marriage issue is moot due to the Supreme Court's decision on DOMA. Card's membership in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has been an important facet of his life from early on.
He is a great-great-grandson of Brigham Young , the Church's second president and prophet, and all of Card's ancestors for at least three generations have been members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. His ancestors include several other figures notable in the Church, including the Cardston colony founder Charles Ora Card. As such, his faith has been a source of inspiration and influence for both his writing and his personal views. Card and his wife, Kristine, have had five children, each named after one or more authors he and his wife admire.
Charles, who had cerebral palsy , died shortly after his 17th birthday and their daughter Erin died the day she was born.
The life of their son, Charles, influenced some of Card's fiction, most notably the Homecoming series, Lost Boys and Folk of the Fringe. In , he appeared in the short film The Delivery , which starred his daughter, Emily. Card is an avid fan of the science fiction television series Firefly and makes an appearance in the documentary Done the Impossible about Firefly fandom. He has also served on the boards of a number of organizations, including public television station UNC-TV —present  and the National Organization for Marriage — Card suffered a mild stroke on January 1, , and was briefly hospitalized.
He reported expecting to make a full recovery despite impairment of his left hand. Edwards Award recognizes one writer and a particular body of work for "significant and lasting contributions to young adult literature". Card won the annual award in , citing Ender's Game , which inaugurated the science fiction Ender Saga, and Ender's Shadow , the so-called parallel novel featuring another boy in the Battle School. According to the citation, the two boys' "experiences echo those of teens, beginning as children navigating in an adult world and growing into a state of greater awareness of themselves, their communities and the larger universe.
In , the Harold B. Lee Library acquired the Orson Scott Card papers, which included Card's works, writing notes and letters, and in the collection was formally opened. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. American science fiction novelist.
