Did The History Channel Make The Devil Look Like President Obama?
The History Channel’s representation of The Devil is causing controversy.
Many viewers of ‘The Bible’ have taken to social networks to point out similarities between the 10-part miniseries’ Prince of Darkness and Pres. Obama.
Conservative commentator Glenn Beck was (naturally) among the first to comment on the resemblance.

Since then Twitter has been filled with tweets comparing and contrasting Obama to the biblical Devil.
Actor Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni, who is playing Satan, doesn’t look much like Obama in real life. But the argument is that he is made up in way that evokes the President.
The miniseries comes from reality TV producer Mark Burnett and his wife Roma Downey (‘Touched By An Angel’). They have given money to Democratic candidates in the past, making it doubtful they were purposely trying to brand Obama with the mark of Satan.
What do you think? Does this devil look like Obama? Or does he look more like the Dark Lord of the Sith, as other folks have pointed out.
