Article Name[edit]

There is currently a rather long debate on Talk: National Portrait Gallery (London) regarding what the correct name of that page should be, with the choices basically boiling down to National Portrait Gallery (United Kingdom) (where the page sat until recently) or National Portrait Gallery (London) (where it has now been moved). One possible corrollary of this might be to rename this page (and National Portrait Gallery (Australia)) to prevent confusion and aid consistency. I note that this page was moved here in the past from NPG Washington DC (which is now a redirect). Any clarifications or additions to the debate would be most welcome.

A fire in my belly[edit]

The section on the controversy was extremely poor. It went in to great detail on how some people have compared it it other infamous acts of censorship and how people have stopped supporting NPG or protested it but the only thing it actually told us about the controversy was that William Anthony Donohue said it was anti-catholic and the author said it wasn't anti-religion or sacrilegious (and it was part of a video which was part of a wider exhibit). It didn't actually tell us at all what was controversial. I've since added a section from the WAD article which clarifies a scene containing a crucifix covered with ants appears to have been what was controversial. If there is more, it would be helpful to add since it's a bit silly to talk about how controversial something is without explaining what was actually controversial. (To be fair, I understand how when someone is intimately familiar with a controversy or whatever they can not notice they are leaving out vital details which leave a reader scratching their head having read lots of not so important stuff.)
