I'm a bit sick of the IDF site, so here's the cut & paste link:
This very brief post by Charles just struck me as more than enough to post on, as it is another typical example of Mr. Johnson's tendency to make a rather short post that seems almost neutral, even though he knows full well how his "lizards" will respond. Here it is, in full actually:
The National Center for Science Education is not amused by Ben Stein’s anti-evolution film Expelled, and they’ve devoted a web site to debunking what they say are the film’s dishonest claims: Expelled Exposed
I do not think that Charles Johnson began his blog career as a "creationist/anti-evolutionary biology" hack, but he is more than attuned at this point to those who follow his lead, and in this case the total on the comments is currently at 2,334. 2,334!
Now that's a long thread by LGF standards. So what's all the fuss about?

Curse you Charles for starting this thread!
I was already overwhelmed with things to do today, and now you've got me caught up in this!
Yes, this is a touchy subject for some. I post this not to start a debate here on this subject, merely to point out that the comments are an endless venting of people very angry with "those lefties" who want to "throw out the Bible". Charles even weighs in, and quite frankly some of these comments rather prove the quotes Senator Obama recently came under about "small town America" as a great example of where these "bitter" folks congregate and vent. This is a bit odd for a group of people supposedly devoted to secularism and the banning of religion...no wait, just that one particular religion, otherwise they are quite content with their hypocrisy. I hope that these comments highlight this point well. That, and Charles knows his lizards well. Very well.
