More Far Left Wing Propaganda.
15 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The theory of evolution and a re-write of American history are caught in the cross-hairs when an unabashed Creationist seeks re-election as chairman of America's most influential Board of Education.

If the guy is going up for RE-election? Where is the controversy? It's made up controversy by the crazed left who want religion eradicated from the face of the earth.

The people who claim to be open-minded and accepting are actually the least open-minded people on earth. They live in a bubble where only those lemmings to think and believe as they do are right.

They seek to destroy those who do not think as they do and ensure that they can dictate how we can act, think, eat, and do.

It's interesting that this movie focuses what happens in Texas when crazy far far far left wing California is actually more influential than Texas when it comes to the books kids across the country read in school.

Bottom line is this movie is about censorship and the removal of freedom of belief. It's about evil people who ant to control every little bit of your life.

But it also positions it in a biased way that suggests there is something wrong with being religious.

The reason for making this movie is bogus. Just as is the agenda of the far left.
