A Call for Revolution

In the Mormon Times, Orson Scott Card publishes a strident call for revolution against governments that allow LGBT people to get married:

How long before married people answer the dictators thus: 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, and help me raise my children in a society where they will expect to marry in their turn.

Presumably the Department of Homeland Security will be taking note.

  1. That’s a bit rich for a guy who is famously a member of a church that famously had rather non-traditional notions about what constituted marriage.

    It wouldn’t be the first time the Mormon Church threatened to go to war over marriage.

    Well, it wasn’t really over marriage, it was over the Mormon Church and congregation holding itself apart from the law of the land…

    …so it’s totally consistent.

    He’s only asking “how long before…”

    (Answer, of course: Never, Orson, get a grip.)
