Piss Christ is a 1987 photo taken by  Andres Serrano of a crucifix immersed in his own urine. The photo received a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, a US Government agency.

Award-winning journalist John Stossel writes subsidizing this kind of garbage might get cut.

 Government has no business funding art. When politicians decide which ideas deserve a boost, art is debased. When they use your money to shape the culture, they shape it in ways that make culture friendlier to government.
