Grack21 Posted January 21, 2011 Share Posted January 21, 2011 Agreed with Liadin. I was thinking of books I already have started reading. There are some authors I will not bother with at all because of reputation. I am not a wealthy enough man to go out purchasing books that I think will probably suck. For instance I will not bother with Goodkind because of his well established tool-hood and that his books apparently suck. (strangely though, I feel compelled to find the full Ted Rockson collection but I'm sure that's nothing counseling won't fix.) As far as Card goes, I'm not familiar with what the issues are with him. I very much enjoyed Ender's Game and I already have Speaker for The Dead so I will eventually read it. Whatever homophobic shit stainary he might be guilty of I haven't seen it in his books yet. If I did, I would imagine I would finish the book and cross him off my list of authors to purchase. If he believes homosexuality is a sin according to the dictates of his personal god(s) then so be it. I don't agree but it's his right. If he is being a prick about it then I would probably take issue. Guy takes it way beyond prick. I know he said at one point that if the government legalized gay marriage its our duty as citizens to rise up and overthrow the government. He also said something along the lines of "gay people should all be fired from their jobs". There's worse, but I stopped paying attention to it.Oh, and the man is an Islamophobe of the Fox News order. Also he has some weird thing going on about mental illness that has to do with is son dying, but I don't know anything about that one, I'd have to look it up.
