Oh dear Lord…

I guess part of the persecution myth of a certain sect of Christians has been that Hollywood treats them as evil buffoons, so in a way, I suppose this movie makes sense in casting a science teacher who teaches actual science as a sneering, mocking one-note  villain who will no doubt get his comeuppance for the crime of exposing a naive Christian teen to biology.

I wish they had written in a Catholic or Mainline Protestant character who would calmly explain to the girl that she can believe in God and Jesus Christ and still accept the scientific evidence for an old universe and evolution.

But then they’d probably make that character out to be a sleezy secret atheist gay drug addict or something, so maybe it’s best that this particular community continues to ignore us.
