Crowbar-Wielding Lady Attacks Jesus P0rn

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Sometimes vigilante crowbar justice is the only way to stop Jesus Blowjob Art:

A Montana woman has been charged with criminal mischief after allegedly taking a crowbar to a controversial art museum display in Colorado that critics say portrays Jesus Christ receiving oral sex from another man.

Kathleen Folden, 56, of Kalispell, Mont., was arrested Wednesday and accused of damaging the the 12-panel lithograph, “The Misadventures of the Romantic Cannibals.”

The piece, on display since Sept. 11 at the tax-funded Loveland Museum Gallery in Loveland, Colo., includes several images of Jesus, including one in which he appears to be receiving oral sex from a man as the word “orgasm” appears beside Jesus’ head.

    "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."

    It's amazing how some artists can make their own art sound boring. Shut up and do art/ porn!

      "It's my job as an artist to remind people that they, too, have a dirty mind."

  • glamourdammerung

    And yet another example of conservative respect of private property rights and the Constitution.

    Also, why do I have a feeling "taxpayer funded" is being used to describe a tax-deductible group?

    • Lascauxcaveman

      It just means the art museum at some point got a significant grant from the NEA. Could have been when the place was built, or last year or whatever.

      Which means Obama personally broke into your home, stole your wallet and gave it to pornographers.

    "Violence is the opposite of what Jesus, Mohammed or Buddha taught. I am amazed that some of the followers don't adhere to the teachings. Agree to disagree and love thy neighbor," he said.

    Wow, how delusional can a person be?

  • Monsieur_Grumpe

    It’s performance art Montana style which typically involves a crowbar and domesticated animals. By leaving out the animals this lady is clearly acting as a minimalist.

    I never cease to be amazed at those who believe that one interpretation of the rantings of a 2,000 year old Jewish schizophrenic is superior to another.

    (And unlike Rick Sanchez, I don't think Jews control schizophrenia…)

      And unlike Rick Sanchez, I don't think Jews control schizophrenia…

      Have you ever seen any Jews with schizophrenia? Kind of like how no Jews died in the WTC attacks or the Midnight Meat Train?

    The old lady claims to be a Christian; well, if she loves Jesus, why is she trying to prevent him from enjoying a nice blowjob?

    • mdotsota

      I'm pretty sure cock-blocking the savior is a damnable offense.

    • carlgt1

      hey, these sanctimonious jerks didn't even allow Clinton to enjoy his BJ, do you think they'll allow Jesus?

      He hung out at the pier with 12 guys and never took a wife, he is the gayest Saviour I know.

  • DCHatesMe

    Foxnews calls it Jesus porn? It's scratchy ink art. Porn is when Paul and Peter cum on Jesus' face at the same time.

  • frailamerica

    Whatever. It's no worse than this "official" Jesus swag: http://www.religiouswatch.com/images/ne_jesus_abs

      Wild. Is that a "Jersey Shore" icon?

  • KobayashiMaru

    The consensus in the comments of the article seems to be to get rid of that pesky First Amendment thingy. Oh, and Muslins.

    How could anyone not like an art work that had "a skull of a Pope in the upper right corner"?

    Skull of the Pope–name for my new band.

  • Come here a minute

    What gives people the idea they can piss on Christ and call it art?

    Oh.

    • jancivil

      What gives people the idea that their particular idea of art means something for everybody? "Art" is when someone put a frame around something indicating that intent. Any definition that's propped up as more than this is someone inflicting their opinion and maybe trying to get authoritative behind it. EG: Hitler, Stalin…

  • jfruh

    I would support this crowbar attack if she declared it was because she found the piece "tired and banal, shock for schock value. I mean, really? Putting the word 'orgasm' next to Jesus' head? I'm sure that seemed very transgressive, when you were 12."

      Hey now, you're not going to mock my masterpiece "Dildo on a Cross: My Batteries Died For Your Sin" now are you? I spent minutes creating it. Do you know how hard it is to weave a crown of thorns small enough to fit on an Ass-Blaster 5000? I had to use hot glue and popsicle sticks for the cross.

  • iburl

    Gah!! A fox news link! How about a warning?

    The apostles outnumbered Mary Magdalene by something like 12 to 1. Only sayin'…

      Twelve minus one for peter.

    Apparently Jesus had head crabs.

  • CapnFatback

    Jesus built my hot rod indeed.

  • Oblios_Cap

    Amen to that!

  • Gopherit

    I feel the same way about Jesus as I did about Bill Clinton. That guy has a really stressful job. The more blow jobs he gets, the better off we'll all be.

  • Barley_Brains

    Lots of fun comments denouncing the way the mean old artist made baby Jeebus cry at the local paper

    Amazingly, some folks seem to have a broken CAPS LOCK key.

    With a $534 billion porn budget we could definitely win the War on Terror or whatever we're calling Eurasia/Eastasia these days.

  • cymchikster

    Blow jobs were just the natural next step after feet-washing. Not many people know that.

      After that buttsechs.

      When a random stranger starts taking off my sandals, getting in his knees and washing my feet, well I assume I'm getting a happy ending as well.

  • axmxz

    Pics or GTFO.

  • Pragmatist2

    Was the funding from the Stimulus Package?

  • transfatz

    "he appears to be receiving oral sex from a man as the word “orgasm” appears beside Jesus’ head"
    Witch (sic) head?

  • transfatz

    Lithographs? Those are prints. Ha Ha Ha!
    I am in the art business now. Here's what happens:
    1.) The insurance pays, then goes after little miss crowbar with both barrels.
    2.) The artist retires the print numbers, gets out new prints and numbers them.
    3.) The price goes up.
    Thanks for the publicity, bitch.

  • zhubajie

    No gunplay? No shotguns or Kalashnikovs? Only a crowbar?

    And I don't believe the artist when he says he was surprised by the reaction; surely he wanted to provoke fighting fundies!
