Author Orson Scott Card has already caused a stir earlier this year at DC Comics, thanks to his well-publicized homophobic views and his involvement with the anti-gay National Organization for Marriage.

Card's anti-gay activism has become the center for controversy once again, months ahead of the release Ender's Game, the sci-fi film based on his 1985 bestselling book. The queer-geek group Geeks OUT has launched an online protest entitled "Skip Ender's Game", which encourages all members and allies of the LGBT community to boycott the film on all of its various platforms.
