More art outrage!

Joseph Smith, artist unknown
The Smithsonian Institute's National Portrait Gallery reopened on 1 July amid a storm of Mormon "outrage" over its exhibition American Origins, 1600-1900. This is the same bunch of philistines that banned Rodin's The Kiss, because of its alleged obscenity! This time they threw a wobbler over some dodgy labelling and a portrait of Joseph Smith similar to the one shown. Looks a fair portrait to me. Maybe they disapprove of Smith's effeminate pose. Did you know that the longest war the USA has ever fought was against the Mormons? Anyone know which side won? Anyone care?
