"As far as I can tell from the article, not one penny of public money is going to this "exhibit."

The "exhibit" is to be held at the county-operated Rosslyn Spectrum Theatre. I think the county should have a say on what is to be held in their public theater built with public money.

I wonder it the county board would allow a religious service to be held there. I believe that's also covered by the First amendment.

You make a point about equal access... would the county permit a gospel concert, for example.

But my point concerned public funding. The penis people are paying the county what I'll assume to be a fair rate to use the facilities.

In a way, rather than the public having to pay for this nonsense, they're actually profiting (financially, anyway) from the rental of the theater... again, assuming that the theater would have gone unused during this time.

I'm a little uncomfortable defending this on any basis but principle, because I think the whole notion of grown men playing with their wieners as public entertainment is ridiculous.

So if a county school chose not to allow the Boy Scouts or an after-school Bible group to use their facilities, you wouldn't have a problem?
