The Geeks.out organization had launched the "Skip Ender's Game" boycott over the weekend due to Card -- author of the science-fiction novel -- of being an anti-gay activist and board member of the National Organization for Marriage.
Card issued a statement to Entertainment Weekly on Monday, asserting: "'Ender's Game' is set more than a century in the future and has nothing to do with political issues that did not exist when the book was written in 1984. With the recent Supreme Court ruling, the gay marriage issue becomes moot. The Full Faith and Credit clause of the Constitution will, sooner or later, give legal force in every state to any marriage contract recognized by any other state."
Lionsgate will release the film, starring Asa Butterfield and Harrison Ford, on Nov. 1.
"Now it will be interesting to see whether the victorious proponents of gay marriage will show tolerance toward those who disagreed with them when the issue was still in dispute," Card said.
