Inauguration Poster Likens Obama to Jesus

Inauguration Poster Likens Obama to Jesus

Jan 20, 2013

By Todd Starnes

Street vendors and souvenir stores across Washington, D.C. are selling posters depicting President Obama as Jesus Christ — and one national news publication called him the “Second Coming.”

The poster, which does not have the official endorsement of the White House,  features an image of the president in prayer with the headline, “Prophecy Fulfilled.”

“Barak is of Hebrew origin and its meaning is ‘flash of lightning,” the poster notes, referencing a passage in in the Old Testament book of Judges.

Hussein, they allege, is a Biblical word meaning “good and handsome.”

“So you see, Barak was destined to be a good and handsome man that would rise like a flash of lightning to win victory in a battle against overwhelming odds,” the poster read.

This week’s cover of Newsweek depicts President Obama as the “Second Coming” – a biblical reference to the return of Christ.

It’s not the first time that Obama has been deified by his supporters.

Actor Jamie Foxx called President Obama “our Lord and Savior” during a recent television appearance.

“It’s like church over here,” Foxx told the audience. “First of all, give an honor to God and our Lord and Savior Barack Obama.”

“Barack Obama,” he shouted as the audience cheered.

Florida A&M professor Barbara Thompson published a book titled “The Gospel According to Apostle Barack.” The book likens Obama to Jesus Christ and Martin Luther King, Jr.hussein

“I learned that Jesus walked the earth to create a more civilized society, Martin (Luther King) walked the earth to create a more justified society, but, Apostle Barack, the name he was called in my dreams, would walk the earth to create a more equalized society, for the middle class and working poor,” she wrote in an excerpt published by The Daily Caller. “Apostle Barack, the next young leader with a new cause, had been taken to the mountaintop and allowed to see over the other side.”

A controversial painting of President Obama, posed as Jesus Christ on the cross, was part of an art exhibit at Bunker Hill Community College in Boston.

The Michael D’Antuono painting is called “The Truth” — and features the president with his arms stretched out — wearing a crown of thorns.

The original debut of the painting four years ago was cancelled due to public outrage, Design & Trend reported.

At the time D’Antuono told Air America that he didn’t mean to “disrespect people’s religion. It’s meant as a political piece.”

And at the Democratic National Convention street vendors were selling an array of products including a prayer garment embroidered with President Obama’s name — along with a calendar that declared him “heaven sent.”

The entry also included a photograph of Obama along with a passage of Scripture from the New Testament.

“For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life,” the entry read — referencing John 3:16.

The month of November includes an image of individuals with their hands on Obama’s back — with the words “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.”

Todd Starnes is the author of “Dispatches From Bitter America.” The book is endorsed by Sarah Palin,

How far you go in life depends on your being: tender with the young, compassionate with the aged, sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of both the weak and strong.  Because someday in life you would have been one or all of these.  GeorgeWashingtonCarver

It cracks me up because Jesus was persecuted and wanted to help the poor and told rich people they should care for people more than their money.

But wait. They kill Jesus, right? Oh man.

Just kidding. I imagine this is just opposite people who think he is hitler or the anti-christ. It's no more sensational than the other claims the opposite side make.

If someone assassinates President Obama, you'll never seen an end to this metaphor.   "He died for our sins".

Yes I remember pointing that out.  Actually I think one reason some rightwingers responded with such intensity to Obama was the religious fervor shown by many of his supporters and his campaign (white pillars, ect...) It disturbed people that a political figure was treated like that.
