Obama the Christ and the Decline of Marriage

In an art gallery on the campus of Bunker Hill Community College in Boston, artist Michael D'Antuono is quietly enjoying his revenge on the voting public.

That's where his painting, titled "Truth" without a hint of irony, depicts President Barack Obama as a stand-in for Jesus Christ, apparently crucified on the presidential seal.

When D'Antuono tried to display his painting some four years ago in New York's Union Square, the event was cancelled under pressure from Christians who were offended by the image, something that apparently still baffles the artist.

The current exhibition, D'Antuono said, "has afforded me the ability to right a wrong."

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

(Metaphor -- Noun. A figure of speech in which an implicit comparison is made between two unlike things that actually have something in common.)

Another "artiste" who perhaps isn't clear on the word "metaphor" is actor Jamie Foxx, who during the recent Soul Train Awards gave a shout out to the Man Who Would be King: "First of all, give an honor to God and our lord and savior Barack Obama. Barack Obama."

Throughout the gospels, Jesus Christ's ministry is compared to a wedding, with the church composed of the faithful in the role of bride waiting hopefully for her groom.

Since Obama became president in 2008, the number of actual weddings in America has plunged dramatically and stayed down. According to the Census Bureau, in 2008, there were 4.5 million marriages. In 2010 and 2011, there were 4.2 million, approximately a 7 percent drop.

Among the uneducated and the recently educated, the numbers were even worse. Among those who hadn't finished high school, the decrease was 14 percent, and among recent college graduates, it was about 10 percent.

Some of that is the continuation of a decades-long trend, but the sudden change after Obama took office is notable. Certainly the economy, which has languished under Obama's policies, has something to do with it.

I'd guess the growing acceptance of gay "marriage" and the Democrats' promotion of single motherhood have a lot to do with declining interest in marriage as well.

After all, gay "marriage" changes the central principle behind the institution from one of protecting the conception, birth and raising of the next generation of citizens to one of glorifying perverted sex. Most kids nowadays can manage that without the benefit of marriage and are encouraged by liberal policies about sex, birth control and abortion/infanticide to remain single.

The ministry of Jesus was about hope, new beginnings, the future and all things good and holy.

By glorifying Obama as some sort of rock star messiah, his followers are choosing all the things that are the antithesis of that.

    There is no way in Hell this lying jerk can be compared to Christ and believe me he will never be our savior. I don't understand why anyone would even want to do a painting such as this.

    • ICOYAR

      Believe me. There is a way in Hell and he is going down the highway towards it. he is basically Kim Il Sung Lite.

      • R Stone

        he will get more power from Satan as he continues in his pride arrogant and blasphemy . but the elect won't be deceived if they continue in the Word and living for Jesus

  • Screeminmeeme

    I am struck by the brazen, shamelessness of these acts of Obama-worship....done openly in the public arena.

    • DontTreadOnMe11

      They cancelled a display of the painting in New York because of Christian's who were offended. But the piss-Christ and the Madonna smeared in elephant dung were not, even though there was HUGE outcry from Christians also. You don't think it had anything to do with political ideology of the artists, do you?

        That may have had more to do with threats of the New York Civil Liberties Union to get involved; in the 1990s, the NYCLU made good on its threats and took on Giuliani on this issue and won in court when he tried to restrict such an exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum (which is in a city-owned building) by taking away the museum's funding. The courts said no, Guiliani appealed, and the 2nd Circuit upheld the lower court ruling.

      I am not. Since in his book he has taken on the role of Stalin. First destroy the church which has been going on with liberals for years then replace God with Satan. I had hoped never to witness this but, since it is here we must reject it in all ways possible available to us.

  • ICOYAR

    I say we crucify "Christ". Or just land him in prison permanently without bail as he is not worthy to even be slain in the same way as Jesus.

    • samtman

      Ar'nt you suposed to turn the other cheek. Or are just another hypocrite.

      • PennJim

        You need to read a lot more of the bible if you're going to quote any of it. You are not to select the verse you want while excluding others. "Resist evil" is also in there, "Flee from evil" too.

    • john811c

      Let him hide in a bunker and do what Hitler did ( but I think he is a coward and doesn't have the guts) maybe he might get what they did to Mussolini...but I hope they just deport him to Kenya.

  • Concerned Patriot

    The world is being prepared to receive the coming Anti-Christ.

    • GramE

      And here am I, waiting to receive the coming Christ Jesus. How long will it be?

  • BROWNBEAR

    WHY DON'T WE CRUCIFY HIM?????

    If the nuts want to worship Obama and think Obama will save them, then let em. We'll see how well it works out for them.

  • Evermyrtle

    His name is "Blasphemy." He hates my SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST and this is only mockery, he won't get away with it and all that applauds will take the ride with him into that burning lake, unless they turn away from the blasphemy and repents and accept this JESUS CHRIST as their SAVIOR, KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS.

  • samtman

    When are you going to blame Obama for baldness, longevity up by 20% in the last 50 years, fat America, ingrown toenais and bad breath.

    • PennJim

      "It's all George Bush's fault", at least that's what he has been preaching for the past six years (two as senator). Get in line there Obamabot.

  • Dorrie

    For all of us who know the truth, it is time for us to stop being offended by these idiots. We must maintain our resolve to live a sober Godly life, and wait for God to finish his projects of Grace. It won't be long. We will be leaving here, and the real Jesus is going to set this world on fire. The wicked shall cease from troubling, and all of God's weary children shall be at rest. WE need to ban together, and make preparations to survive the "Ignorance Bregade" until then. Stop making yourself mad at the dumb things they say. They are a bunch of ignorant fools, and they have OB to lead them deeper into despair. When he sets up his Holacaust, they won't know what hit them. He is the wretched heathen they deserve, and I will not waste anymore enegy on them. HELL is enlarging itself for them, and it will be over soon. Rejoice, God is a majority of one. They cannot win, because he cannot loose.

  • Hotnike

    TOTAL BLASHFEMY (sp), No wonder GOD is no longer on the side of the U.S.

  • samtman

    If I were a believer, I would thank the God for giving us such a wonderfull President.

    • Screeminmeeme

      samtman...Which god are you talking about?

      • GramE

        Hey Screemin' - he did say "The God". So at least he must believe there is The "One God" that he doesn't believe in - our God.

    • PennJim

      Oh, you're a believer. You believe the deceiver, the liar. (Those are synonyms for devil and satan, by the way)

    Parable in the Bible in Acts: The people gave him a great ovation, shouting, "It's the voice of a god, not of
    a man!" Instantly, an angel of the Lord struck Herod with a sickness, because he
    accepted the people's worship instead of giving the glory to God. So he was
    consumed with worms and died.
    Go for it, Jamie Fox and other fools. Maybe king zero better get a checkup.

    • freedomgirl

      No checkup...Let the evil within eat, grow and destroy itself...

  • Tionico

    I think this image is a spot on ridicule of what drives the voters who put this fraud back in office. That blatant worship of this character is rampant is beyond dispute. This image makes light of that, depicting what IS with no endorcement that this is the way things SHOULD be. Those who look to this kinyun fraud as their source and protection (saviour) will end up as plastic, phony, ridiculous, as their plastic god.... well portrayed in this image. I see little similarity between this image and that of Jesus laying down HIS life for His own through his death. Here, the kinyun appears fake, phoney, inflated, plastic..... no work, pain, no price paid, and thus no real results. Saving another always requires sacrifice..... Jesus did so, the fraud does not. Every rational person knows this.

    This is a parody of the reality this artist perceives... and it is quite accurate.

  • R Stone

    Signs of the times of the days of the End of mans reign and Satans control. Godless, anti christ, denying the truth and persecution of the bride of Christ. The tares are growing up with the wheat, but in the end they will be burned. If you choose hell, you will get it.

  • john811c

    Obama can take his perverted sex and explain that to God

  • Jill

    Obama didn't sacrifice himself for anything or anybody. All he does is drink in the adulation. I'm surprised his head fits through the door of Airforce 1.
