Gay-themed Art Exhibit Includes Ants Crawling on Crucifix (Video)

The Blaze No, this isn’t déjà vu. Last year, around this same time, the Blaze reported about the same controversial video clip featuring ants crawling on a crucifix that was supposed to be included in an exhibit at the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. Now, the video is back, once again raising eyebrows.

A museum in New York City that is launching a gay-themed art exhibit is going to include the film, which many have dubbed as anti-religious. The controversial exhibit opens next week at the Brooklyn Museum, an institution known for presenting edgy and bold artworks that in the past included a painting of the Virgin Mary that incorporated elephant dung.

The film, called, “A Fire in My Belly,” was created by the late David Wojnarowicz. It was pulled from the National Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C., when the exhibition was shown there last year. The ant scene angered some in Congress and the Catholic League called the work sacrilegious.
