I know exactly how you feel. Card was one of my favorite authors in my adolescence/young adulthood -- and then I heard him speak in person. He is not a guy whose personal beliefs I agree with. Nonetheless, I still think that many of his books are very good -- and I'm still willing to purchase them in many cases. If I did some sort of litmus test on authors to make sure I agreed with everything they believed before I read them, I wouldn't be reading very much!
