What I found instead is that Orson Scott Card is actually a terrible person who supports a whole host of things I stand against. As the linked article points out, art is not created in a vacuum and supporting an reprehensible artist is not morally neutral.
I am so, so curious to read the book(s).
But I do not want to support Orson Scott Card any more than I already have.
Is it morally acceptable, or at least neutral, for me to read them (from the library, not paying for them), then give a somehow-equal amount of support (time or effort) to the causes on which I disagree with him?
