Jesus and the Ants

The Smithsonian’s “A Fire in my Belly” video exhibit, which depicts Jesus on the cross being eaten by ants, at least has the virtue of accurately reflecting what the Institution has become and the nature of the people who run it. Bill Quick’s take at Daily Pundit:

You think you’re so “transgressive,” so “daring,” so “cutting edge,” you cheap-ass poseur pieces of shit?

I’ll show you daring. I’ll show you cutting edge.

Switch out your ant-drenched Jesus for an ant-riddled Mohammed.

Go ahead, you gutless, cowardly pussies calling yourselves artists. I dare you.

I’d say that’s about right, although expressed in somewhat intemperate language.

  1. “… at least has the virtue of accurately reflecting what the Institution has become and the nature of the people who run it. …”

    Agreed.

    (During the last couple of years I have come to *consiously* welcome and appreciate when people write or say things that I dont approve of. I think one of the great advantages of freedom of speech is that people expose themselves for what they are, so that others are warned and can react appropriately.)
