Our Lord Jesus Christ is attacked once again! Insulted! Blasphemed! This time at the Brooklyn Museum of Art where they will show “Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture,” an exhibit on homosexual and lesbian themes.
As part of this exhibit, there is a blasphemous video by David Wojnarowicz, who died of AIDS in 1992, with a scene of ants crawling on a crucifix.
This same blasphemous exhibit was removed from the Smithsonian in November of 2010 due to a huge public outcry. Now the Brooklyn Museum of Art has decided to show it!
In my opinion, this is an outrage against the Sacred Person of Our Lord Jesus Christ and we cannot remain silent about it.
And I am sure that you won’t remain silent either!
Moreover, the Brooklyn Museum receives city, state and federal funding, although Museum representative Adam Husted says they are not using tax dollars to directly cover the costs of the exhibit. Sure it doesn’t!
We’ve heard that before.
Of couse, the public money does not DIRECTLY fund the blasphemous exhibit, no! But it covers other museum expenses and frees up cash and INDIRECTLY supports blasphemous exhibits such as this ant covered crucifix.
For all of these reasons, it is important that we Catholics speak up and tell the Brooklyn of Art how offended we are.
Our Lord Jesus Christ died on the Cross to save us from our sins – can we not, at the very least, speak out in His defense?
