"It isn't wise to automatically consider a character's viewpoints to match one for one with an author's."

Normally, I'd agree 100%.

However, this is not an isolated case with Ennis.

Now as I've said many a time, I do like and respect Ennis as a writer, at least with works like Hellblazer, Preacher and his various war series. That said, the right-wing streak (apart from his views on religion, of course) in much of his writing cannot be brushed aside as "just what his characters are saying." Ennis has just as much a right to soapbox at length through his characters as, for example, Denny O'Neill had to do so back in the 70s with Green Arrow's preachy rants (though from the opposite side of the political spectrum). I'm just pointing out that's what he's doing, is all.
