Although it is now digital, Newsweek celebrated President Obama's upcoming inauguration with a "cover" that calls the event "the second coming," an apparent reference to the return of Jesus Christ, The Blaze reported Friday.
A post at Twitchy called the cover "creepy," while The Blaze described it as "controversial" and questionable.
The cover highlights an article by former editor Evan Thomas, who once compared Obama to God.
Well, we were the good guys in 1984, it felt that way. It hasn't felt that way in recent years. So Obamas had, really, a different task We're seen too often as the bad guys. And he he has a very different job from Reagan was all about America, and you talked about it. Obama is we are above that now. We're not just parochial, we're not just chauvinistic, we're not just provincial. We stand for something I mean in a way Obamas standing above the country, above above the world, hes sort of God," he told Chris Matthews in 2009.
This is not the first time Newsweek has used such a theme when portraying Obama.

My grandson calls it the egg-nog-uration.....
It’s Newsweek, The majority of the country will never see it
For all you mid-tribers and post-tribers, just wait till Anti-Christ comes. I’ll be gone because I’m pre-trib.
What a cutie.
Not even worth the paper they aren’t printed on.
Isn’t the Second Coming the climax of the Apocalypse? To have the End of the World twice within as many months is unusual.
I thought the libbies didn’t believe in deities....
Obama as The Second Coming?
Didn’t Newsweek go out of business or something?
Is he ridin Obama dirty in that photo?
Is digital toilet paper still toilet paper?
0bama and his convention denied G-d three times, and they did not follow Him in the first place.
Of course, I don't know what St. Peter will do, but I wouldn't want to be in their shoes when they leave this mortal coil.
THE SECOND COMING
Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: a waste of desert sand;
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?
Or you think you shook it just right and you end up with a bit of a wet spot on your undies but he is more like chit
