Aaron Cynic writes at Diatribe Media:
In an age where 70 percent of U.S. troops believe Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell should be repealed, where their superiors also agree such a discriminatory policy should be removed, where another state has approved civil unions – radical right wing conservatives found a new way to attempt to demonize gays and lesbians. Even though the GOP majority in the House stated they would block legislation on such trivial matters as DATA until our tanking economy was addressed, John Boehner still found time to help the right strong arm the Smithsonian into removing artwork from a gay artist they deemed an “assault to the sensibilities of Christians.”
The offensive assault on Christian sensibilities centers on an exhibit called Hide/Seek, which contains a video depicting Christ on the cross with ants crawling on Him. The intent of the artist was to “depict the suffering of an AIDS victim,” something sadly apparently lost on its detractors.
