A Chilling Trailer

Leticia at Catholic Media Review links us to this trailer of Ben Stein’s soon-to-be-released documentary, Expelled.

One tends to think his warning to scientists and others about the career risks involved in watching the thing may sound like hype and boilerplate, but we’ve already seen how those scientists who disagree with Al Gore about “man-made” global warming are being silenced and discredited, so who knows?

We hear often that religion represses science – note the lie that Christians oppose stem fund research (we never have; we’ve only opposed the destruction of embryos for the purpose) – but we rarely hear about how the devotees of political correctness will work to undermine, discredit or silence those who dare to question the status quo. I’m looking forward to seeing this film.
