US woman arrested for damaging Jesus prn art

A woman in Montana has been arrested and charged with criminal mischief after she took a crowbar and damaged a p*rn art showing Jesus receiving oral sex from another man.


Washington, Oct 8 : A woman in Montana has been arrested and charged with criminal mischief after she took a crowbar and damaged a p*rn art showing Jesus receiving oral sex from another man.

'The Misadventures of the Romantic Cannibals', is a multi-panel art piece which includes an image of Jesus apparently receiving oral sex from a man, and is part of the 'The Legend of Bud Shark and His Indelible Ink' on display at the tax-funded Loveland Museum Gallery in Loveland, Colorado.

Kathleen Folden, 56, of Kalispell, Mont., was arrested and accused of damaging the 12-panel lithograph, which had been on display since September 11.

Witnesses said Folden entered the Loveland Museum Gallery, used a crowbar to break gla*s over the art and ripped the print.

Mark Michaels, an area art dealer, told Denver's KUSA-TV that he tried to stop her adding that the woman screamed: "How can you desecrate my Lord?"

Police spokesman Andy Hiller said the work by Stanford University professor Enrique Chagoya has a tear in the panel with the depiction of Christ.

The piece is part of an 82-print exhibit by 10 artists who have worked with Colorado printer Bud Shark.

Chagoya says he is sad that his book and the First Amendment were attacked.

"Should we as artists, or any free-thinking people, have to be subjected to fear of violent attacks for expressing our sincere concerns?" Fox News quoted him as saying.

"I made a collage with a comic book and an illustration of a religious icon to express the corruption of something precious and spiritual.

"There is no nudity, or genitals, or explicit sexual contact shown in the image.

"There is a dressed woman, a religious icon's head, a man showing his tongue, and a skull of a Pope in the upper right corner of the controversial page.

"I did not make a picture of Christ. I used symbols as one would use words in a sentence to critique corruption of the sacred by religious institutions," he stated.
