No it is definitely not in the his novels. If you read Songmaster, the way he portrays love between a young male coming of age and a slightly older companion, you would have no way of knowing he might not approve of same sex marriage. Card said the following about the book.
Quote:
What the novel offers is a treatment of characters who share, between them, a forbidden act that took place because of hunger on one side, compassion on the other, and genuine love and friendship on both parts.
That said, this relationship is a small part of the overall book. If you haven't read Songmaster you might want to consider reading it when you have a chance. I hardly ever remember specifics about a book, but I do recall that I enjoyed this book.
