Religion fuels violence once again

Kathleen Folden, a truck driver from Montana, wearing a T-shirt reading “Tough as Nails”, recently drove to the Loveland Museum in Colorado to take a crow bar to a piece of art she found offensive. The piece, which depicts Jesus engaging in oral sex, is by Andres Serrano, and can be seen in detail here.

Yet another example of how an otherwise normally functioning human being can be driven to violence by dogmatic religious beliefs. It always amazes me that simply drawing a few carefully placed lines on a piece of paper can send religious zealots into paroxysms of rage.
