Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Kathleen Folden, the 56-year old Montana trucker accused of taking a crowbar to artist Enrique Chagoya's "The Misadventures of Romantic Cannibals," which depicts Jesus receiving oral sex, bonded out of jail yesterday thanks to an anonymous benefactor who paid her bail. And as she departed, she left no doubt about the motivations for her act, telling 9News, "Remember, God is real."

Below, find 9News footage of Folden leaving the jail; she's next scheduled to appear in court on October 15. Then page down to see "Romantic Cannibals" as a whole, a blow-up of the most controversial panel, and a video of a protest at Loveland Museum/Gallery several days before Folden allegedly did her bashing.
