Did Sr. Helen Prejean really denounce the Crucifixion?

If somebody can find a transcript of this, please let me know. From the Rocky Mountain News:

She received nothing but a stony silence, however, when she questioned the basis of the biblical crucifixion story as a "projection of our violent society."

"Is this a God?" Prejeans asked about the belief that God allowed his son, Jesus, to be sacrificed for the sins of humanity. "Or is this an ogre?"

The audience -- to that point in strong agreement with the author of "Dead Man Walking" -- said and did nothing.

Has she lost her ever-loving mind? I know that Prejean isn't a model of orthodoxy, but this is just awful.
