Orson Scott Card
According to the chairman emeritus of NOM’s board, Robert George, the Mormon Church is represented by Orson Scott Card, who is an author and columnist with the Mormon Times.
Orson Scott Card, according to People for the American Way, has advocated for the criminalization of homosexuality.
He also wrote, “Regardless of law, marriage has only one definition, and any government that attempts to change it is my mortal enemy. I will act to destroy that government and bring it down, so it can be replaced with a government that will respect and support marriage…"
Described by the Mormon Times as the author of “best-selling science fiction novels, contemporary fantasy, biblical novels, poetry, plays and scripts,” Orson Scott Card was given the 2010 Brigham Young University Management Society’s annual Distinguished Public Service Award in 2010.
According to a report on the Times’ website, “Card said it is imperative that America return to a strong society, and urged people seated in the ballroom to become part of that return. He spoke of how America’s strong society began to be dismantled in the 1960′s and the once-good, once-strong culture seriously damaged.”
