Smithsonian Stands by ants crawling on Jesus video

Update: We reported the trashy ‘Christmas season’ display at the Smithsonian earlier in the week. The video was pulled Tuesday, after Congressmen John Boehner, R-Ohio, and Eric Cantor, R-Va., issued statements characterizing the exhibit as “outrageous” according to a report by’s Shannon Bream.

Shannon Bream’s article also reports that the Smithsonian is standing by the video:

“Martin Sullivan, Director of the Gallery, says an advisory board carefully debated the exhibit before deciding that its serious nature and important artists merited a showing. Sullivan acknowledged the “theme of identity and same-sex desire” is something “not everybody is comfortable with.” The Gallery does have a sign warning visitors about the adult content.

“We firmly believe the video was appropriate in the context of the exhibit,” Sullivan maintained.”

This is another reason that shows why the government funding of arts, NPR and many other cultural venues is not only outrageous but unconstitutional.
