Museum drops Christ video

The Smithsonian's National Portrait Gallery in Washington, DC, is removing an exhibit video after complaints from a Catholic group that it was sacrilegious.

Catholic League President Bill Donohue said the video by artist David Wojnarowicz was "hate speech".

He said the video with ants crawling on a crucified Christ figure was designed to insult Christians.
