Painting Depicts Obama as Crucified Christ.

Painting Depicts Obama as Crucified Christ

Nov 26, 2012By Todd Starnes


A painting that features President Obama posed as Jesus Christ crucified on  is on display at a community college art gallery in Boston.

The painting by Michael D’Antuono is part of a larger exhibit called “Artists on the Stump – the Road to the White House 2012.” It’s on display at the Bunker Hill Community College Art Gallery until Dec. 15th.

The painting is called “Truth” – and shows the president 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 City’s 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 someone’s hurt feelings,” D’Antuono 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 hasn’t been any criticism of the painting.

D’Antuono said the public exhibition “has afforded me the ability to right a wrong.”

He dismissed critics who called the display blasphemous.

“The crucifixion of the president was meant metaphorically,” he told Fox News. “My intent was not to compare him to Jesus.”

D’Antuono blamed the controversy on conservative media “trying to promote the idea that liberals believe the president to literally be our savior.”

In the aftermath of his aborted first attempt – the artist said he received more than 4,000 emails containing messages that were “anything but Christian-like.”

“But I accepted that it is their right to express themselves and hope that they now see it in their hearts to afford me the same right,” he said.

Editor’s Note:    Your intent was not to compare him to Jesus???   A Crown of Thorns???  Who were we supposed to think you were comparing him to Napoleon?

It is not a conservative conspiracy liberals do call Obama Lord and Savior (See below)

  1. When I read your blog about Jamie Foxx calling Obama Lord and Savior, I also wondered why he didn’t come right out an object strongly to it. I think it reflects on his character.

    4 my BIBLE says, “But the wicked are like the troubled sea, when it cannot rest, whose waters cast up mire and dirt. There is no PEACE, says my God, to the wicked.
    [ Isaiah 57:20,21]

  3. When I read what Jamie Foxx had said I thought to myself What a fool, and Obama for not criticizing him for saying that. I am glad I will not be standing before the Lord having made such a blasphemous statement, It is hard to pray for people like that.

  4. Asking questions are really good thing if you are not understanding anything
    completely, except this post presents pleasant understanding yet.

    1. Also, this is just not right and I do not know who that sb obama thinks he is, he is not our Lord and he did not die for us, he does not even do right by this country, this is disgusting to look at, he is in fovor of abortion including partial birth abortion which is where they kill the baby on the way out and he is for same sex marriage. Everything the Lord against he is in favor of, why is he still president???
