That is what is important for me. I do understand the desire to boycott a certain author or actor or artist because of their political or social views. There is plenty out there for folks to read, there is no reason to read something that you find unappealing for whatever reason.
I had never noticed it (overt Mormon prostletyzing either) until I came across claims from other people. I bring this up because I really like OSC's thinking on the topic in the article I linked.
As with his books, I just "resonate" with OSC's thinking.
