The True Significance of the book "After The Ball" for Gay Rights?

It seems like many conservative preachers have latched on the the book After The Ball by Marshall Kirk and Hunter Madsen as the text that defined the "gay agenda". Does anybody on MetaFilter -ideally someone connected to the gay rights movement- know the true significance of this book? Was it influential in defining approaches that the movement took for getting equal recognition for LGBTQ folks?

Ethical Offsetting

I would very much like to see the film Enders Game. I liked the book and I expect it would make an excellent movie. However I find Orson Scott Card's views abhorrent. I'm aware that he already got paid for the rights and so boycotting the film would do nothing. Is there a US pro gay rights charity (or any other charity in direct contravention to Mr Card's views) that I can donate to? This is basically carbon offsetting, but for ethics.

Trying to figure out this bumper sticker I've been seeing around here (Buffalo, NY). Almost square, sporting a thick yellow equals sign (?) on a royal blue background. (MI)
