Los Angeles: den of iniquity and enlightenment

The new Charles Darwin biopic “Creation” has had a bit of trouble finding a U.S. distributor. The film’s producer chalks that up to religious lunacy in this article from The Telegraph. He does, however, tip his hat to the folks here in Los Angeles and that other cultural hub, New York, for not being religious bumpkins:

“It is unbelievable to us that this is still a really hot potato in America. There’s still a great belief that He made the world in six days. It’s quite difficult for we in the UK to imagine religion in America. We live in a country which is no longer so religious. But in the US, outside of New York and LA, religion rules.”

This guy’s obviously never been to Vegas.
