Geeks OUT, the group calling for a boycott of the big screen adaptation of Ender's Game over its author's anti-gay views, has rejected a plea for tolerance.

In response to the boycott, Orson Scott Card, also a board member of the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), said that last month's Supreme Court rulings made the issue moot.

Ender's Game is set more than a century in the future and has nothing to do with political issues that did not exist when the book was written in 1984,” Card wrote.

“With the recent Supreme Court ruling, the gay marriage issue becomes moot. The Full Faith and Credit clause of the Constitution will, sooner or later, give legal force in every state to any marriage contract recognized by any other state.”

“Now it will be interesting to see whether the victorious proponents of gay marriage will show tolerance toward those who disagreed with them when the issue was still in dispute.”

Geeks OUT called the plea “a bridge too far.”

“[E]specially from someone who characterizes gay marriage as 'the bludgeon [the Left] use to make sure that it becomes illegal to teach traditional values in the schools,' (2012),” the group wrote.

“There's nothing more democratic and tolerant than a consumer boycott, rooted in the ideas of free market accountability. Skip Ender's Game is about doing what all of us do every day – use facts to determine who and what to support with our money.”

“Orson Scott Card, we can tolerate your anti-gay activism, your right-wing extremism, your campaign of fear-mongering and insults, but we're not going to pay you for it. You've got the right to express your opinions and beliefs any way you choose – but you don't have a right to our money.”

Ender's Game stars Harrison Ford, Sir Ben Kingsley and Abigail Breslin. It is set to open in November.
