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.

good for her, although I’m afraid such a piece is likely to be a hydra.

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 DA could probably ensure re-election if he refused to prosecute.

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?

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.

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?

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.
