Superblog!! Quote of the Month (for the month of February, 2000)

Orson Scott Card (pictured above) is the writer of a ton of books, including the pretty good science fiction novel Ender's Game, which, according to Wikipedia, has been used by military colleges as a textbook on leadership. That's some kind of accomplishment, I guess. It's due to be made into a movie in 2006.

The lovely Mr Card is also a mormon, a Bush supporter, and a homophobe. And, as if that wasn't enough, it turns out that he has a really keen understanding of the field of psychology:

"The beginnings of the science of psychology are filled with false prophets like Jung and Freud, people who really set back the science of psychology and had a huge and sickening influence in our culture. They are among the great frauds and evils of our time."

That's fighting talk.
