Religilous too 'controversial'?

I don't know the situation on this in other countries, but in America, the movie Religilous was taken out of theatres for being too cotroversial. I'm an atheist, so maybe it was just me but I thought this movie was hilarious. It was that funniest movie I'd seen in a long time.
However, I also saw Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed, and anyone else who has seen it will hopefully agree that this movie creates and supports a claim that Darwinism=Nazism, yet it isn't considered controversial enough to be taken out of theatres?

What do you guys think?

I think that expelled film is just a very cleverly disguised propaganda... as for this new one - it might be hilarious too - but there will just be enough dimwits who can't tell that they're minds are being pulled by strings.

Too true, too true....

Too true, too true.... Though if Expelled is propaganda (and I agree that it may well be), it's wrapped in flourescent paper with a huge label taped across the side that says 'Religious Propaganda To: You From: The Government' and not cleverly disguised at all.

Somehow they will still end up justifying it, like believing the bright and shiny fluorescent paper is there due to divine intervention by God.

Hahaha, yeah, I guess. I'm sure God loves shiny paper.

Who says it was removed for being too controversial? I know some theaters didn't want to run it, but for the theaters that played it, I imagine they only removed it once the box office numbers dwindled.
