Crazy Mormon gaybasher or not, Ender's game is a great novel. One of the finest Sci-Fi novels ever written and I cant wait to see the movie. Especially considering that Card has spent the last twenty years trying to get movie off the ground that would keep the story more or less intact. He turned down nunmerous offers over the years for a simple moneygrab. Also Harrison Ford & Ben Kingsley in a Sci-Fi movie. Fuck yeah!

Orson has said some pretty hateful things over the years. That being said, a movie is a massive collaborative project involving hundreds or thousands of people, the vast majority of whom do not share his views. It seems unfair to punish those people's hard work because the story's author is a bigot. And the story itself does not contain any homophobia that I can recall, although it has been a couple of decades since I last read it. I'd say see it if it interests you, and if you feel guilty, donate to the It Gets Better project.
