A film to controversial for America?

How can that even be. We are one of the most controversial countries and a film can't make it here, because it show evolutionary thinking verses creation.

  • I am really confused - this is the 3rd time I've seen this year old article surface. It uses out of context data to suggest the majority of Americans are creationists - they're not. If you look up the actual study in the article, 35% believe in evolution, 36% don't give a damn, and only 25% believe in creation. And more to the point, this movie WAS released in the US, back in January of this year, a few months after this article came out last year to try and drum up publicity for it. Is this going around as an email forward or on facebook or something?

  • I think they should allow it. If people dont want to watch it, they dont have to! I would be interested in seeing it

  • This is all about MONEY. They dont believe they can make enough on it here because of thehigh concentration of Christians. As a Christian, I for one dont care if they show it. How silly? I am not so insecure in my beliefs that a MOVIE will make me change my mind! :)

  • Crap...meant to add that there isnt some entity saying this movie isn't "allowed" here. It's just not being picked up by distributors...

  • Hollywood is stupid in what they consider "controversial". They released Passion of the Christ to theaters, despite the Crucifixion scene, but will not release Solomon Kane to theaters, and almost didn't release it to DVD because the main character gets crucified.

    That is about average for most polls. Don't know where NP got her stats.
