Expelled = epic fail!

An invitation-only (of course) private screening for Expelled in Florida, held expressly to influence state legislators to support a bogus “academic freedom” bill that’s been introduced to counter the recent ruling that schools must teach evolution, tanked miserably, drawing only about 100 viewers.

Expelled trailer

Here we go, it’s the first full length trailer for Expelled and now it appears to be an even bigger mountain of crap than it looked like before. I am so looking forward to seeing this movie with fellow ACA members. I’m not kidding. I hope you folks will join me. In just the first …
