Well, as I said a certain line has to be crossed. I can ignore a lot of personal foibles and political views that don't agree with mine. Goodkind crossed it by putting them into his books. Card went way way way over that line a long time ago.

It's unfortunately starting to infect his actual work if some of his short stories and other books like Flashback are any indicator. I just hope he got it off his chest with one book and doesn't ruin The Abominable with silly social-political claptrap.

He has some of the most extreme right views I've ever encountered (and I lean pretty far to the right) as well as some unapologetic racist views. Anyways I don't want to ruin his stuff for anyone because the man is an amazing writer, just giving context. He has written one of the best sci-fi books of all time and is a gifted author so I can forgive a lot. With Card he kinda had Enders Game and I haven't really enjoyed anything else he has done since plus he's a crazy hypocrite.

Yet he's a registered democrat go figure.
