Woman destroys controversial Jesus print (Gay Jesus Porn)
UPI ^ | 10/7/2010 | Unattributed

Posted on 10/12/2010 11:05:02 AM PDT by mojito

A female truck driver was arrested after she allegedly ripped up a lithograph at a Colorado museum that purportedly shows Jesus having sex.

Kathleen Folden, 56, of Kalispell, Mont., spent the night in the Larimer County jail after being arrested at the Loveland Museum Gallery, The Coloradoan of Fort Collins reported. Police said she used a crowbar to break through the plexiglass protecting the lithograph and then shredded it.

Generally, I would oppose smashing a painting with a crowbar, even a bad painting, but this "painting" was a deliberate insult and provocation, like burning a flag.

And this lady sounds like she just had had enough.

I wonder if she got the frame that depicted mohammed woshipping the pig ladies?

I would have been completely unaware of that depiction but for FreeRepublic. No news source mentioned it.

Anyone opposed to what this woman did obviously must be prejudiced toward lady truck drivers!

I understand how she felt, and wanted this painting gone, but I fear that her act will get more airplay on teh MSM than a beheading would have by an RIP’er.

I still think she was part of the show. Look to see her get off without charges being pressed. And see her getting her rig spiffed up in the not-too-distant future.

She should just say she’s Muslim and offended. Case closed.

Outraged citizen destroyed taxpayer funded establishment of religious mockery of Christianity.

If you can’t put the 10 commandments on courthouse grounds or see a giant cross that tributes fallen soldiers, then you can’t use taxpayer money for THIS either.

The so called art depicted Jesus in a homosexual act which is called BLASPHMY. The city of Loveland incited violence by not listening to concerned citizen. She was not the only one that had enough. There are many offers for donations to her defense fund. Even a liberal journalist thought the lady was great. It was a cartoon not a painting.

Imagine the publicity if she’d tried to smash a koran with a crowbar. It might have even become an international news item.

But depicting Jesus in an orgy isn’t “worthy” of editorials from liberals who think it is disrespectful. And it isn’t worthy of editorials who think that our government shouldn’t be funding religous iconography arts.

She need not go that far. All she has to say is that it was offensive to a recognized prophet to Islam. She can still retain her Christianity. Put the fear of Islam to the left by default.

Three cheers for her.

Although with a print, the artist can just run off some more and cry censorship and homophobia and mew about how brave and transgressive he is at every new venue.

And even if it was a one-off drawing, he could do another in half an hour.

Sigh.

The state uses taxpayer money to support this blasphemy? If there is a separation of Church and State (as it is now understood) then this is unconstitutional. (as was the urine with cruxifix, etc.) We should demand NO taxpayer money to promote Atheism also.

BTW, Atheism and Marxism is being promoted 24/7 with taxpayer money.

What beheadings?

There have never been any beheadings, otherwise Chrissie Matthews would have told us about them.

Nah, no good to borrow on their reputation for violence. It empowers them to do so.

Maybe. But you could also argue the artist had created “participation art,” and she was just fulfilling that role.

Also, lest we become too clever for our own good, please keep in mind that some among the Reformers who gave us “Protest”-antism did attack physical symbols of idolatry and blasphemy. So it is not completely unreasonable to think this could happen naturally within Christianity, especially in response to a deliberate provocation.

ripped up a lithograph

I may not understand the complexities of lithography, but isn't this essentially similar as ripping apart a poster of the Mona Lisa? Unless the original printing source was destroyed, can't the "artist" just make another one?

The same constitutional prohibition on establishment of a state religion prohibits state established mockery and criticism of religions.

Wonderful. Now every time some Islamic hacks off a head or blows up a 5000 year old Buddha statue, apologists are going to point to this woman and say “See, they’re the same, Christians are just as crazy”

Luke 22 (New International Version)

36He said to them, “But now if you have a purse, take it, and also a bag; and if you don’t have a sword, sell your cloak and buy one. 37It is written: ‘And he was numbered with the transgressors’[b]; and I tell you that this must be fulfilled in me. Yes, what is written about me is reaching its fulfillment.”

38The disciples said, “See, Lord, here are two swords.”
“That is enough,” he replied.

LUKE 12 (NIV)

Not Peace but Division
49”I have come to bring fire on the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled! 50But I have a baptism to undergo, and how distressed I am until it is completed! 51Do you think I came to bring peace on earth? No, I tell you, but division. 52From now on there will be five in one family divided against each other, three against two and two against three. 53They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”

What a childish, idiotic, self-defeating way to get one's point across. Instead of making opponents think about the implications of state-sponsored attacks on a religion, she has them accusing our side of censorship, intolerance and anger management issues. If this public building were to display a taxpayer-funded work glorifying Jesus, would you all cheer for a non-Christian exercising his or her "right" to destroy it?

Yes, the original painting of this so-called artist can be used to make further copies.

Basically, yes. However, lithography tends to deteriorate over time as more prints which are run. That's why "artists" generally sell them in limited, numbered editions.

In these case, however, I would bet there was no intention to sell numbered lithographs, just be provocative.

Like temple prostitution of old, such wickedness is supposedly sanctified by its context.

And the Stanford professor who created this art print on the public dime is “just as crazy” as the Floriduh preacher who proposed burning a privately owned koran.

The President, Secretary of State, FBI (and IRS?) came down on him “persuading” him not to.

One of these things is not like the other, not like the other, not like the other...

I disagree with what this woman has done. God is perfectly capable of defending his own name, and He will get the last laugh, on the day of judgement, with those who produced and promoted this travesty. Destroying this work does not advance the kingdom of God, in my opinion.

If we Christians responded to smears to the Son of God like this every time it happened, we would have fewer pricks that would insult Christianity.
