not sure if this is the best place for this debate...

Excerpt from the anti-Christian play "Corpus Christi," staged in an NEA (National Endowment for the Arts)-funded club in New York City:

Joseph: - Mary!
Mary: --- If you're the son of God what does that make me?
Voice: - - The mother of the son of God.
Mary: --- I don't know if I can do this.
Joseph: - G--damn it, Mary. I'm giving you till three. 1..2..3.
Mary: --- I'm sorry.
Joseph: - You stupid piece of sh--, you f------ cow. (Baby crying)
Mary: --- Just don't hit me again.
Joseph: - Just don't hit you again, is that what you said, just don't f------ hit you again, is that what you said! (This is repeated several times as Joseph beats Mary.)
Joseph: - F--- this sh--!

[Your tax dollars at work.]

Is the NEA even necessary? I don't think it's worth our tax dollars. This is just one reason why.

I agree that the NEA is a waste of money. I cringe at the idea of the government appropriating funds based on how inoffensive artwork is; better to just get rid of it entirely.
