A Real Reason to Boycott

Facing criticism from fans for hiring Orson Scott Card, an outspoken opponent of homosexuality and marriage equality, to write a Superman story, DC Comics issued this statement:

As content creators we steadfastly support freedom of expression, however the personal views of individuals associated with DC Comics are just that - personal views - and not those of the company itself.
Questions of free speech, political acceptability, and the free market are one thing. But splicing independent clauses with the word “however”—that’s intolerable.
