DC Comics hires anti-gay author Orson Scott Card to write Superman

NPR: "DC Comics has tapped Orson Scott Card, the Ender's Game author who has said homosexuality is "deviant behavior," to write for its new, digital-first Superman. That has sparked outrage among fans. Card also suggested in a 2004 essay that if same-sex marriage is legalized, "our civilization will collapse or fade away." The equality organization All Out has a petition to drop Card. (Thanks, Matthew!)
