Skip to comments.UPDATE: 'The Bible' Producers Call Controversy Over Satan's Resemblance To Obama "Utter Nonsense"
Posted on 03/18/2013 12:23:22 PM PDT by EveningStar
History and The Bible executive producers, husband and wife Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, just addressed the Obama-Satan controversy. History channel has the highest respect for President Obama, the network said in a statement. The series was produced with an international and diverse cast of respected actors. Its unfortunate that anyone made this false connection. Historys The Bible is meant to enlighten people on its rich stories and deep history.

They did it on purpose.
The comparison hardly seems controversial to me.
I will agree with that. He is the anti-christ though.
I don’t think that it is fair to Satan to be comparing him to such a contemptible creature...
There was another thread that showed the actor.
If 0bama had a white father... it was him.
My first thought on seeing that photo was it was a creepy photoshop of 0bama, until I found out it wasn’t...
“He is the anti-christ though.”
The only controversy over your statement is whether we exclude the word “the”...
Satan must’ve alleged libel.
If they wanted him to resemble Barry the Sequesterer, they would have dressed him in golf shoes, shorts, a golfing shirt and hat and he would have been carrying a golf club. These allegations are ridiculous.
Satan, like his minions on the left,
can only be successful when operating under cover of deception.
That’s why the left (and their “father”) is so upset.
Actually, it is Obama who resembles Satan. Satan here first.
The resemblance is a matter of choice and diligent effort on the part of Obama.
To be fair, the Devil does not look like Obama. The Devil is much older, therefore, it is correct to say that Obama looks like the Devil.
They say that people who have spent a lot of time together start to resemble one another.
I thought they were going for “Obama Meets Emperor Palpatine” but what do I know????
As to the producers’ line about Obama as a “fellow Christian”, I guess now we can understand where the ninja angels in the first episode at Sodom came from and why they wouldn’t be clear why sodomy is named after the town.
He didn’t really resemble Obama. He didn’t have any flies on him.
Liberals hate God so they are trying anything and everything to destroy the credability of the mini-series. “Passion of the Christ” redux.
Judging for myself, it doesn't look very nonsensical...
Translation - be ready for a blonde blue-eyed Pontius Pilate.
You would think the left would be happy about Satan looking like their messiah Obama..after all, Satan is their hero..but I bet somewhere Satan is offended, even he has his standards
...or golf clubs.
Jesus: I’’m a carpenter.
Satan: You didn’t build that.
In other news....
Chris Christie has issued another denial that he in fact played King Herod in last night’s episode.
According to Wikipedia, she is a devout Catholic. No devout Catholic could possibly like the Muslim Anti-Christ sitting in the Oval Office.
If Satan had a son..
and he didn’t bow.
I dunno. The character in the picture on the right looks a lot more frightening and evil to me...
CORRECTION: Brilliant marketing!
It is good guerilla marketing, but it would have been smarter to have Obama/Satan at the beginning of the series, in the Garden of Eden. They’ve lost three weeks of controversy/hype.
“Quit comparing me to Obama” - Lucifer
More than 50% of American voters thought he was the one needed to lead them.
Bad sign of what Americans really are.
Reminds me of the joke early on -
What’s the difference between God and Obama?
God doesn’t think He’s Obama.
Satan doesn’t have the floppy ears, though.
If the devil had a son . . .
Hmmm...guess the devil looks like Obama will at 70!
They all look alike.
(ducking for cover)
It's like watching a baseball game on ESPN's Sports Center....Home runs and stolen bases. Just the highlights. No context. Utter waste of time. The book was much better.
Now, The Vikings is a much better series so far.
Maybe the left is using this as an excuse to pressure the History channel to stop airing the rest of the series on their network....
I watched it.
There was absolutely nothing in the appearance of that actor that made me think Obama.
This is BS.
O wow yes. When I saw that scene I’m like WTF. For a moment I thought I was watching Enter The Dragon with Bruce Lee =)
I’m pretty sure I read somewhere that the same actor was used in the Garden scene, but didn’t make any waves then. Only now for some reason is the resemblance being noticed.
I think it was on TMZ.
Pride you have perfected. Your condescension is a model to My servants everywhere.
Greed and envy are the basis of the economic planks of your party's platform and your campaign.
Lust is the basis for the social values planks of your party's platform and your campaign.
You stir up wrath between the races, and it can be put into effect efficiently today using flash mob apps.
You criticize gluttony. A useful fakeout, with the hope of substituting pride for gluttony.
Your shortcoming is sloth. It may be a deadly sin but My servants are expected to be diligent in the pursuit of My kingdom. You spend time on the golf course that could be used to further My kingdom and the rule of My servant Mohammed. You are mocked on the internet by people who say that you don't have the work ethic to be the Antichrist.
I’ve watched all 3 episodes and I think they’ve done a decent job.
I’ve had the bible stories that very few read or see get broadcast to millions:
John the Baptist
Mary & Joseph
Anyone who attempts to put the major stories in the bible inside of 10 hours has their work cut out for them.
I’m very, very pleased that these are being aired.
I’m betting that 70% of America doesn’t know of Cyrus and can’t remember that they ever heard of him.
Nah. The anti-Christ won't need a teleprompter.
