Orson Scott Card, for all of being an amazing writer, is usually a douchebag, with reprehensible views of women, homosexuals, and anything to do with sex. However, for once he seems to be making sense.

Liberals killed my parents and raped my dog.

Yes they did on the parents.

Not so true with the dog however.

/ :wild:

Also OSC is nuts, I read some of the stuff he put out after 9/11 and while I can appreciate the angry mood of times even by those standards he was pretty freaking extreme.

I like some of his books(Xenocide and pretty much everything set after Enders Game as well as the last Shadow book just sucked and everything else he's written other than some of his short stories, which have been pretty good, have been almost unreadable to me) but the man is nuts.

Nu huh. My dog can attest to it. Come and see his stretched asshole. You'll go home crying.

They would be the tears of a man who's seen the fruits of his labours and knows that in his heart he can do no better. Tears the fall like rain on a Mississippi morning in June, clouding your eyes until you can't see anymore but don't care because nothing else your eyes will gaze upon can bring such joy. I hope in my lifetime to see such a thing, to cry such tears, I hope to weep like a holy man who's just shook hands with the lord god himself, I hope to penetrate dogs of all breeds and sizes, regardless of their consent. I hope. I hope.

Imagine Morgan Freeman saying that. Its beautiful.

Actor.

You realize he was being sarcastic, right?

Unless that was some confusing reverse-meta-sarcasm on your part, in which case carry on.

He probably was. My dog is a very blatant whore.

How does one tell the difference between OSC being sarcastic and OSC being full of bitter vitriol for all people progressive? It's not like he peppers his work with :V

You should suggest that to him. It would really help.

At least he bothered to visit Israel (back in 2004). Wish more writers would. I'll kill to get Pratchett to come.

Also, the essay amused me.
