Dear Mormon church  
Please stop trying to convert me during the commercial breaks of my favorite sci fi and fantasy programs. I don't want your book no matter how uplifting you find it and even if it is free, because I know nothing is really free and receiving it is likely to bring an army of preachers to my doorstep.

I don't know if you target these programs because you think fans of them must be particularly godless and you must save us from hell or what, but please just stop.

Thank you.

Sincerely,

Tapati

Ummmmm...I'm just going to blame it on Orson Scott Card. :) (Not seriously - he's one of my fave authors.)

I was enjoying his books too, until I ran across a long essay he wrote against gay marriage that I found extremely offensive. (Going to cause the fall of civilization, etc.)

I actually got rid of every book of his I owned after that. I didn't want to continue to support him with my book buying dollars, although of course he's entitled to his opinion.

Yeah, I read that essay too, awhile back. I was pissed. I think I only bought one of his books, and it was awhile back too, before I read that. Ick. Still a good author though, which makes it worse.
