While I am a tiny bit disappointed that the author of one of my favorite books, and genuine Sci-Fi letgend feels this way, it is his right. If its not affecting the story, it doesn't matter what he thinks.
He's Mormon, what do you expect. That alone should get the guy some sympathy. Besides, Mormons think badly of anyone who isn't Mormon.
I was raised in a Mormon family, and chose to not participate at the earliest opportunity. I won't get into the reasons, but my family treated me much differently after that. The last time I saw my dad, stepmom and little brothers - my step mom told me that their town had a lot of bars and strip clubs, as if all non-Mormons do nothing but drink and pay strippers. It's been better than 2 decades since I was last in a strip club, and probably 5 years since I was in a bar.
What's funny is catching Mormons doing things un-becoming of a Mormon. Fortunately Orson Scott Card is a Sci-Fi writer - which goes along nicely with the Mormon religion - they believe that God lives on the planet Kolob. No doubt, God has no gay neighbors.

but asking an organization to FIRE somebody over a personal belief, that does not influence their work, is wrong.
And unjustifiable. This is just the gay community screaming bloody murder over nothing, once again.
