News That Should Make Taxpayers Cross

We’re always reading stories about how our tax dollars are wasted, but we never read stories about how our tax dollars are put to good use — and we’re not going to start today.

From CNS News:

Federal taxpayers are subsidizing a college in New York whose art school is currently displaying works that include a drawing of a man with a crucifix coming out of his rectum, a drawing of a man with a rosary coming out of his rectum, and rosaries decorated with penises.

Over the last eight years, at least $4.6 million in federal tax dollars have been provided to the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, which is displaying the controversial artworks. Some of the money has come in the form of grants from the National Endowment for the Arts.

Hopefully this school will also display my piece of art: a rectum with a congressman sticking out of it.

You’d think some atheist would sue the government for funding things that contain depictions of items that foist religious dogma in all its proctological glory on the public. Where’s Michael Newdow when you finally need him?
