Dobson Gives Thumbs Up to “Expelled”

The New York Times reports that the pro-Intelligent Design film “Expelled” isn’t being shown to critics, but is being shown to Right Wing leaders: “Paul Lauer, head of Motive Marketing, which is handling publicity for the film, said that critics were not invited mostly because the film was not polished enough for professional scrutiny. He said that his company, which also marketed the 2004 film, ‘The Passion of the Christ,’ is reaching out to conservative leaders. For example, Mr. Lauer said, Mr. Stein personally showed ‘Expelled’ to James Dobson, founder of Focus on the Family, which has a big following among right-wing Christians. (Mr. Dobson gave the film a thumbs-up.)”
