This Could Only Happen In America…Or the Bible.

22 Mar

So I heard about this controversy on of all places sports talk radio. Apparently the sports host was watching the new miniseries about the Bible and immediately recognized the character of Satan as our own current President Obama and then when he saw follow up stories in the newspaper and on the internet and took a look at the juxtaposed photos of President Obama and the miniseries’ Satan he was sure of it. Here’s the photo.

In fact, just about everyone who looks at the photo and who has seen the miniseries spots the amazing resemblance. How about you?

When asked about whether or not the resemblance was intended the History Channel had this to say:

“ It’s unfortunate that anyone made this false connection. HISTORY’s ‘The Bible’ is meant to enlighten people on its rich stories and deep history.”

The series creator Mark Burnett said: “This is utter nonsense, The actor who played Satan, is a highly acclaimed Moroccan actor. He has previously played parts in several Biblical epics– including Satanic characters long before Barack Obama was elected as our President.” (so I’m guessing this makes the actor an expert on what Satan really looks like?)

And his wife, Roma Downey, who is also one of the producers added: “False statements such as these are just designed as a foolish distraction to try and discredit the beauty of the story of The Bible.” And Ms. Romey has made a career out of playing a real live angel on TV so she is somewhat of an expert too I guess.

And even Jesus, or rather the actor who portrays Jesus, chimed in on the controversy by saying:

“I don’t think that’s controversial at all, I think that’s so funny. Mehdi Ouazanni, who plays the devil, did a nice job and it was awesome and never — not even for one second — were we even thinking about that, so I think it’s hilarious.”

So here is a photo of  the actor Mehdi Ouazanni:

Obviously a makeup specialist did his hair, blackened his face and added a few extra touches to make him appear more “Satan” like. (after all any real TV aficionado knows Zorro when he sees him!)

Now whether we fellow Americans should take offense or umbrage at this portrayal of Satan as the President of the United States  may be debatable… but what I find most amusing is that all of these fine actors, and producers and make-up specialists on the set of this miniseries, despite their years of experience and expertise in the business, can’t seem to see or even acknowledge the strange resemblance that most of the 68 million mortal viewers watching it on TV can.

Could that be some kind of miracle?

But on the other hand Mark Burnett, who is also the creator of such biblically epic shows like Survivor, Celebrity Apprentice, The Voice, and Shark Tank, has said that he believes there is a devil on earth and that  the real devil is scared that Jesus has now entered the picture (in the miniseries) and is trying to distract from Jesus’ message by creating this false story  and a false likeness between Obama and the TV devil because the show is hugely popular and is having a big impact on viewers.

Now that’s a miracle!

But Mr. Burnett and his TV angel wife are confident that the real devil’s plan of distraction will not work, saying, “We believe in the light.”

Television and religion: what a combination! Who but the devil could have thought that one up?
