A painting that features President Obama posed as Jesus Christ crucified on a cross is on display at a community college art gallery in Boston.
The painting by Michael DAntuono is part of a larger exhibit called Artists on the Stump the Road to the White House 2012. Its on display at the Bunker Hill Community College Art Gallery until Dec. 15th.
The painting is called Truth and shows the president on the cross with his arms outstretched. A crown of thorns rests on his head.
It was originally supposed to debut nearly four years ago at New York Citys Union Square. But that event was cancelled due to public outrage.
I always regretted cancelling my exhibit in New York because I feel my First Amendment rights should override someones hurt feelings, DAntuono told Fox News. We should celebrate the fact that we live in a country where we are given the freedom to express ourselves.
A spokesperson for the art gallery told Fox News there hasnt been any criticism of the painting.

Only in Boston....
Come on you liberal artists, where is that picture of
Obama as Mohammed?
Just more proof he’s the antiCHRIST
Liberals are insane
It's a way to give Christians the bird. That's all.
JAMIE FOXX: First of all, give an honor to God and our lord and savior Barack Obama. Barack Obama.
This “artist” specializes in visual propaganda of the sort Stalin liked to posterize. Of course, he thinks his work is too important to censor, but if he had lived in the land of his heroes, he would have fallen afoul of some apparatchik and been dragged off to the gulag a long time ago.
Bunker Hill, no less................
I guess he is doing it for us. - Tom
Judge Judy is right. You can’t fix stupid...
Election or reelection = crucifixion? What’s the artist thinking?
Every leftist gets the symbolism immediately. 0bama replaces Christ. Marxism replaces Christianity.
That might work if it was partially burned and placed into a fish aquarium filled with pig urine.
Thirty five years ago there was a picture of Jimmy Carter dressed as Jesus, captioned J. C.
Time to take action against these liberals and Obama.
I thought making the effigy out of bull droppings would make the message a lot more clear.
No, I disagree. Somewhere in California there must be something akin to that painting already adorning a wall in at least one of our “prestigious” college or university campuses.
What, no image of Bathhouse Barry turned upside down and inserted into a container of urine — “Piss POTUS?”
So far as I am concerned, the crucifixion cannot happen quickly enough.
The Romans thought it an excellent way to execute criminals, and in fact, MANY criminals were hung on a crucifix, to die in agony in public. The gallows and the guillotine are only newer and much quicker ways of public execution.
But like Robespierre, wishing these ends upon another sometimes comes around to claim its greatest proponent.
Let’s see, liberal hate Christians yet they try to be them every chance they get.
Would the death of Barack Obama save the USA?
Mmmmf, mmmf, I’m not talkn
“What, no image of Bathhouse Barry turned upside down and inserted into a container of urine”
Equip him with scuba gear and they could make it a TV series. They could call it “Sewer Hunt”
“Come on you liberal artists, where is that picture of
Obama as Mohammed?”
That would basically be taking a photograph.
This begs PHOTOSHOP!
All the painting lacks are a few brown crap globs to expess the disdain people have for the crucified president. He deserves no respect, even in extremis.
It is a shame his feet are not shown. One bare foot immersed in urine would have been a nice touch.
Lastly, Come the resurection, he will be crucified again.
Has holder had the artist arrested for blasphemy? Oh wait... we are talking CHRISTIANITY and not islam. Nevermind.
One more black racist demon will burn in hell.
I beg to differ. I think this "artist" would be, in the land of his heroes, a high-up party member in good standing, with his own prime Dacha.
On the other hand, Jon Mcnaughton would clearly be deep in a Siber... I mean in a Sonoran Desert camp.
The artist has the one confused with one of the two thieves crucified with Christ.
Obama always gets what he wants. That’s not what crucification is about.
The artist is so very brave.
Let’s see...Christ died to save all of us, something I just can’t see the President doing.
Put that one in a jar of urine and call it “Piss Obama” and I’m all for it.
It’s so striking! They say Bronco Bama is so much like Lincoln. Wha’ happen him, eh? They say Bronco Bama is a saviour. In history, every time some human puts another human into the ‘saviour’ category, there is a Brutus in the crowd.
Except for the repercussions, (which might thin out the herd a little, anyway), I’m waiting for this current carnal narcissist to meet his Brutus.
They are obviously misinterpreting the painting. Properly interpreted, you see Obastard as the crucified Dumachus (aka Dismas, Dysmas, Dimas, Demas, Zoatham and Rach).
Whoops, got my thieves mixed up. I meant Gestas (aka Dumachus).
And the artist is a total moron
