Getting your Freak on for Christmas

In case you need another reason why the Federal Government should not fund the arts. And this is the Smithsonian's Christmas season exhibition.

According to the museum itself, the exhibit shows a commitment to “showing how a major theme in American history has been the struggle for justice so that people and groups can claim their full inheritance in America’s promise of equality, inclusion and social dignity… These themes, historic and artistic, come together in ‘Hide/Seek: Difference and Desire in American Portraiture,’ the first major exhibition to examine the influence of gay and lesbian artists in creating modern American portraiture.”

Homosexuality is now considered a major theme in American history.

Tolerance is not enough YOU must approve.

Every major question in history is a religious question. It has more effect in molding life than nationalism or a common language. – Hilaire Belloc
