We the undersigned, proud to call ourselves Superman fans, would like to voice our support of DC Comics' decision to hire Orson Scott Card to write a story for the Adventures of Superman comic.
Card has been the subject of a number of attacks by those who want him to think like them, and are trying to force DC to fire Card simply for standing up for what he believes.
Superman stands for truth, justice, and the American Way. Superman would stand up for Card's right to free thought and free speech, even when it isn't popular. We think DC Comics should do the same.
One of the petition signers, Ken Marshall, provided the following quote, which is very fitting: "Be not intimidated, therefore, by any terrors, from publishing with the utmost freedom whatever can be warranted by the laws of your country; nor suffer yourselves to be wheedled out of your liberty by any pretenses of politeness, delicacy, or decency. These, as they are often used, are but three different names for hypocrisy, chicanery, and cowardice. " - John Adams
