If you’re like me, it’s most likely (unless you live under a rock), that you’ve heard some form of homophobic banter coming from either relatives, classmates, fellow workers, and especially far-right anti-gay religions, often affiliated with anti-gay so-called christian organizations, regarding gays getting or wanting to get married.

New York’s Cardinal Dolan gives his spin again on Meet the Press this Sunday, and I couldn’t help myself, but I just felt a need to point it out, since, as I’ve posted before, he’s not my favorite LBGT advocate. The interesting eye-rolling part of the upcoming interview is near the end.

But multiple sources from both inside and outside the companies that produced the “Ender’s Game” film – distributor Summit Entertainment, visual effects company Digital Domain and book-rights holder OddLot Entertainment – tell TheWrap that Card’s fee has already been paid through a decade-old deal that includes no backend.
Harrison Ford has been outspoken in his support of Ender’s Game, but also in his disagreement with Orson Scott Card’s anti-gay activism. Speaking with the Guardian, Ford reiterated his stance, and added he had his own struggles in deciding whether or not to take the part.
“It’s well known Orson Scott Card and I have different views on the issue of gay marriage and gay rights,” said Harrison Ford. “It has been a real dilemma for me: I love the book ‘Ender’s Game,’ it’s all about tolerance and compassion, and understanding the other.”
For those who aren’t aware, World Outgames is an “international sports event [that] is organised by the LGBT-community but is open for everyone, regardless what their preferences are.”
