This just in:

Perhaps he was inspired by the turnout for Young People Fucking, or maybe he misses all that media attention he got after taking credit for getting C-10 through the House with nary a peep over the controversial changes to the film tax rebate. Whatever the reason, Reverend Charles McVety is headed back to the capital to co-host a private screening of a very different kind of film: Expelled: The Movie, the controversial anti-Darwin documentary that purports to expose a sinister anti-creationism bias within the mainstream scientific community.

The details are HERE.

    Why can’t some of you right thinking science types get an audience in congress? That’s something I’d like to see, someone with reason explaining why Expelled is wrong.

    On the bright side, this weekend Expelled is down to twelve theaters.

    From the article:
    “Unfortunately, someone apparently forgot to check the date, and scheduled the event for the same day as the Residential Schools Apology, which will take up most of the evening.”

    Mistake my ass. The dude know he was going to be laughed off Parliment Hill and intentionally scheduled it then so he could claim to have given a screening on the Hill and not be embarrassed by the inevitably low turnout.

    No federal politician would miss the apology. And few would embarrass themselves or put their image at risk by showing up for a screening of that film.

    @ Tony P: For starters, two words…….. Expelled Exposed.

    Oh, and Greg, would you repost the link to your collection of “Expelled” links?

    Happy reading, Tony.

    Wait a minute. According to the grosses at this link, Expelled made no money at all between May 18th and May 25th.

    Gotta be a typo, since it says right below that that it made ~$45K over the weekend of the 25th. But still, I have to admit a degree of schadenfreude there…
