Kalispell art critic doesn't care for Jesus sex lithograph

Posted By on Thu, Oct 7, 2010 at 11:30 AM

Police arrested Kathleen Folden, 56, of Kalispell, for allegedly damaging a print in a Colorado museum that portrays Jesus Christ engaged in a sex act. As she grabbed the 12-panel lithograph by Stanford University professor Enrique Chagoya, titled "The Misadventures of the Romantic Cannibals," Folden reportedly yelled, "How can you desecrate my Lord?"

From The Associated Press:

Chagoya said his work, a collage using religious and pop culture symbols, is a critique of religious institutions, not beliefs.

"I critique the institutions and my disagreements with the way the church corrupts the spiritual," he said. "People might disagree with my views, my art, but I'm not trying to offend anybody."

Sadly, we don't have a picture of Chagoya's print yet.
