Do you allow an author's personal beliefs to [View all]

determine if you will read or purchase his/her books.

I have enjoyed a lot of Orson Scott Card's books (he is a good writer). However when I finally got around to look at the author as a person, I found that I didn't agree with some of his positions (opposes intelligent design, suggests that scientific evidence is against global warming, and disapproves of homosexuality and gay marriage). He has every right to his own beliefs. I have decide to exercise my right to not spend my hard earned money on any more of his books. I figure why should my meager dollars help to support someone I disagree with.
