This just in from Cheryl Morgan:

In the Mormon Times, Orson Scott Card publishes a strident call for revolution against governments that allow LGBT people to get married:

How long before married people answer the dictators thus: Regardless of law, marriage has only one definition, and any government that attempts to change it is my mortal enemy. I will act to destroy that government and bring it down, so it can be replaced with a government that will respect and support marriage, and help me raise my children in a society where they will expect to marry in their turn.

Marriage was just a symptom. The 19th century Mormon Church saw itself separate from the USA, and were ready to go to war over their God-given right to self-determination and immunity from Federal oversight.

It's very much like the early history of Islam, only without the victory part. The Mormons didn't actually go to war and destroy their opposition, they only engaged in small acts of terrorism and gave up when the Feds went after them.

Card's position is totally consistent with that history.
