But I like this response to it even less.
A Montana woman accused of taking a crowbar to an art museum display that has spurred protests and been denounced as obscene was arrested Wednesday on a charge of criminal mischief.
Kathleen Folden, 56, of Kalispell, Mont., was accused of damaging a print that critics say protrays Jesus Christ engaged in a sex act.
Witnesses said the woman entered the Loveland Museum Gallery, used a crowbar to break glass over the art and ripped the print, according to the Loveland Reporter-Herald.
It is really simple -- Enrique Chagoya had a right to create and display this blasphemous "codex", and the woman who destroyed it desecrated the First Amendment in the process. But I would like to point out that the response of Christians to this insult is far different that what could have been expected of Muslims had the focus been on another part of the "codex".
She may have damaged (or perhaps even destroyed) the artwork -- the above image carries a death sentence under Islamic law. Most Christians would condemn the actions of the woman who attacked the artwork, but most Muslims would acknowledge that an attack on the artist himself would be within the bounds of acceptable behavior for a Muslim. I think the difference is still important to note.
