Orson Scott Card is best known as the author of Ender's Game, and it's multiple sequels. Ender's Game is one of my all-time favorite novels, of any genre, and should be required reading at the high school level. It's certainly better than the A Separate Peace-esque crap that students are typically force-fed.
Unfortunately, Mr. Card has been in the news lately for a different reason. He's part of a creative team assigned to a new digital Superman project being launched by DC Comics. He's also under fire by homosexual groups for daring to oppose their alleged "right" to marry.
Mr. Card isn't Catholic. He's Mormon and apparently actually believes some of the stuff that Mormonism proclaims as true, hence his opposition to homosexual unions. This is sufficient for multiple groups with different views asking for him to be fired.
I bring this up because this is what Catholics are experiencing and will experience over the coming years. The tolerance of moral relativism will only extend as far as the hate of natural law will allow. Whether it's a new nominee for the Supreme Court or perhaps entry into an academic fellowship of some kind, compliance with immorality will be demanded. Notice that Mr. Card isn't sponsoring legislation or anything. He isn't trying to destroy someone's livelihood. He's just acting in conformity with his conscience in support of a legal principle that is still the law in the vast majority of the country.
If people were really paying attention, they'd be calling for the firing of abominations like Joe Quesada and Dan DiDio.
