CBS News asks: "The Bible": Does Satan look like Obama in History Channel miniseries?
CBS News ^ | 03/18/2013

Posted on 03/18/2013 1:01:34 PM PDT by SeekAndFind

The History Channel miniseries "The Bible" has been a hit in the ratings, but it's also grabbing attention because of the actor playing Satan -- and the public figure some viewers think he resembles.

After actor Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni's first appearance as Satan in "The Bible" aired on Sunday, a number of viewers took to Twitter to say that he bears a resemblance to President Barack Obama.

One person who took notice was conservative commentator Glenn Beck, who tweeted on Thursday, "The bible on the history channel Sunday. Best episode yet. Don't miss it. Does satan look EXACTLY like Obama? Y e s!"

Of course it looks like Obama...the object of any film production is to make it seem as REAL as possible. Sheesh.

Legend is that Michelangelo modeled one of the demons on the Sistine chapel ceiling after a cardinal that was a royal pain in the rear.

Well, of course they resemble one another! Is Obama worried about being typecast?

Looks like a cross between an older Obama and the Emperor Palpatine.

What I noticed weeks ago when I looked up the cast was the character of Satan was the only one played by someone with an Arab name.

RE: No, Obama is Satan.

Is there a difference between the phrase:

“Obama is Satan” and “Satan is Obama” ? HEH HEH

And yet not one news organization protested, when President Bush's severed head was shown on a pike in Game of Thrones.

The resemblance comes mostly from the scary and hateful looking eyes.

IMO, the actor’s face shows a strength and maturity that is missing in the face it’s being compared to.

There is a lot for the hollywood and the government elite to gain from convincing people that Obama is Satan..

Obama is not Satan.

Exactly. To fly Satan in from Washington every day for filming would cost too much.

If people start believing Obama is indeed Satan than his popularity will grow and he will be openly worshipped. That is just the kind of sick culture we have.

I wonder whoever imagined satan to look sinister....

Satan can disguise himself as an angel of light ( 2 Corinthians 11:14)

I don't think he looks anything at all like Obama.

CBS must be dreaming dreams.

I guess, the MSM is so very focused on eliminating anything at all pertaining to the one and true God that they would even claim that those that produced the Bible are attempting to depict Obama as Satan, so they must shut it down.

Can you imagine anything so stupid as claiming the producers searched far and wide to find a Muslim man to portray Satan in the Bible, so they can make fun of Obama?

This nutty claim shows just how nuts they are.

I think there was a typo in the memo the WH sent to the HC producers telling them to make Santa look like Obama.

Hmmm....

1. Neither Satan or Obama has a valid birth certificate.
2. Both reign over a corrupt system.
3. Both hate Israel.
4. Both pay lip service to Christianity but secretly hate it.
5. The bible calls Satan the father of lies. Obama has been accused of lying many many times.

So maybe this isn't a stretch...add your own uncanny observations!

Meh.

I was more upset that Septa Mordane was beheaded and piked, to be perfectly honest.

She was just an old lady.

WHo the Hell beheads an old lady?

Yeah, but she was royalty.

Royalty are going to get beheaded from time to time regardless of sex and age.

Septa Mordane was just a priestess of the Seven and a nice old lady.

But the answer as to who would behead her or other like her is King Joffrey :O

If they did not cast that Obama look alike as Satan on purpose, God is telling us something.
