‘Bible’ Producers Dismiss Obama-Satan Connection

  • NEW YORK (AP) — The producers of the cable TV miniseries on the Bible say Internet chatter that their Satan character resembles President Barack Obama is “utter nonsense.”

    Mark Burnett and Roma Downey said Monday the Moroccan actor who played Satan in the History channel series, Mehdi Ouzaani, has played Satanic characters in other Biblical programs long before Obama was elected president.

    The connection got widespread attention after talk show host Glenn Beck last week tweeted: “Does Satan look EXACTLY like Obama? Yes!”

    History said in a statement that the network has “the highest respect” for Obama, and that “it’s unfortunate that anyone made this false connection.”

    “Both Mark and I have nothing but respect and love our president, who is a fellow Christian,” said Downey, the “Touched By an Angel” actress who is married to Burnett. “False statements such as these are just designed as a foolish distraction to try and discredit the beauty of the story of the Bible.”

    Beck has actually been a big supporter of “The Bible.” The same tweet that pointed out the actor’s resemblance to Obama urged his followers: “Don’t miss it.”

    On Monday, Beck tweeted “Media — relax.”

    He said the observation was “funny, nothing more” and that the series “is 1 of my fav shows. Keep watching.”

    The five-part miniseries has been a big hit for History, reaching more than 13 million viewers for its first episode.

    1. Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which
      blog platform are you using for this website? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers
      and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

    2. I do consider all the concepts you’ve presented on your post. They’re very
      convincing and can definitely work. Still, the posts are very brief for starters.
      May just you please extend them a little from next time?
      Thank you for the post.

    3. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your site?
      Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
      it better. Youve got an awful lot of text
      for only having 1 or 2 images. Maybe you could
      space it out better?

    6. What does it even matter? Obama is President! As I explained to my 7yr old daughter… “It is one thing to win. But when your opponent is pissed off about it… It makes the win just a little more sweeter” ;)
