“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.” – Ender’s Game author Orson Scott Card, whining to the Deseret News, which is owned by the Mormon Church.
NOTE: Among Card’s “actual ideas” is his prediction that President Obama is going to unleash “an army of urban thugs” on America. And his plan for Christians to violently overthrow the federal government rather than submit to same-sex marriage.
