Protests Greet Decision to Hire Gay Marriage Opponent to Write Superman

More than 9,000 signatures have been gathered on an online petition protesting the news that science-fiction writer Orson Scott Card, an outspoken opponent of same-sex marriage, is among a number of writers participating in a digital anthology comic starring Superman.

Allout.org, an organization advocating LGBT equality, launched the petition in response to the news that Card will be one of some two dozen writers participating in a digital-only series called "Adventures of Superman." Card is a board member of the National Organization for Marriage, which opposes the legalization of same-sex marriage, civil unions and gay adoption.
