    I think everyone here knows I am not a fan of Orson Scott card, but he has a science fiction series on BYUtv that is interesting. I admit I am desperate for decent scifi so I gave it a chance. It's different, has a hint of the Go'uld (the companions) and a bit of dramaaaaa. But whenever I get ready to ditch it, I find it sucks me back in. There's the trailer:


    Don't know if any of you have seen it yet.

    Orson Scott Card is a racist, homophobic, crackpot loon. His demented personal opinions are so repellent that they make consuming his commercial endeavors impossible.

    So I take it you avoid all Harvey Weinstein productions as well?

    Looks interesting, but I have to avoid it for personal reasons (see next quote).

    OSC is one of the worst racists out there, and most definitely the worst in Hollywood. I am surprised he is not blacklisted. His extreme far right wing racist homophobic beliefs would normally have somebody like him outcasted for life. The man is horribly homophobic and racist.

    Weinstein has had his Karma moment, and his lascivious behaviors were not public and not part of his self-declared public persona. Orson Scott Card has been quite vocal about his views for a very long time.

    That's an illogical question to ask. Weinstein doesn't publicly spout racist, homophobic, crackpot, extreme Right wing nonsense. He keeps his misogynistic, pervy fetish behind closed doors. ;)
