Woman Attacks Controversial Art Exhibit Depicting Jesus in a Sex Act

November 11, 2012

 

A woman drove across state lines to destroy an art piece displaying "The Misadventures of the Romantic Cannibals."  The lithograph shows Jesus “receiving oral sex” and other sexual innuendos. The artist expressed the attack on his “freedom of speech” and a Councilmember agreed.  Perhaps the suspect felt a violation of religion should give equal weight as a crime but it may be more of a tasteless piece of pornography or art. The artist’s way to purposely evoke this controversy allowed the suspect to also evoke the same difference because the artist may appear to act criminally in a peaceful way against the church, while the suspect acted in a destructive way against the artist by tearing up the print.  Crime separates right and wrong, and for others--so does religion.
