Obama look-alike as Satan on “The Bible” causes stir

Controversy is brewing over the apparent resemblance between President Obama and the actor who depicts the devil in the part three of the History Channel’s miniseries, “The Bible.”

Conservative commentator Glenn Beck was one of the first to point out the resemblance between the Moroccan actor, Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni, and President Obama.

Several tweets, including “Obama is not Satan,” are trending on Twitter.

The History Channel released a statement saying the network has the highest respect for President Obama, and it’s unfortunate that anyone made this false connection.

In a statement, miniseries producer Mark Burnett called claims there was a resemblance “utter nonsense.”

Burnett said the actor who played Satan, Mohamen Mehdi Ouazanni, “is a highly acclaimed Moroccan actor who has played parts in several Biblical epics  – including Satanic characters long before Barack Obama was elected as our President.”

Executive producer of the miniseries Roma Downey, Burnett’s wife, added, “Both Mark and I have nothing but respect and love our President, who is a fellow Christian. False statements such as these are just designed as a foolish distraction to try and discredit the beauty of the story of The Bible.”

      You know nothing about the bible, the anti-christ will not come on the seen until after Jesus comes back for the church, the anti-christ can not come out until Christ takes the true believers with him, then the anti-christ will come out after the rapture of the true believers, President Obama is not the anti-christ, read your bible and come to know the truth of God.

  • Arick Buckles

    Edna Bice, if you know God you would definitely have faith in knowing President Obama is not the antichrist. May God have mercy and grace upon you and shower you with blessings Ms. Edna!

  • csk

    It was nice he has time to go on his continuing campaign trail and vacations to do a movie. Then he could do a cameo and play himself. Unfortunately the destruction of this great country must be the Antichrist primary role. I am hoping for divine intervention to eliminate the snake from the White House.

  • resmad

    Comment to all. First off Obama is real. Second, your God and your Satan are fantasies made up centuries ago to keep you in line. Remember when religion ruled over everybody? Even , kings. We called that the "Dark Ages".

  • Jhill

    WOW, you know you sound completely crazy…. right? He's a Christian, and if he wasn't black you wouldn't have a damn thing to say. Grow up.

      • Jhill

        Sure, by your standards. That's just our opinion and that's all it is, YOUR OPINION. Yeah that sound right ,the man calls himself a Christian and goes to church just for shits and giggles.

      • Fed up

        It's hilarious that you pull the race card here. Perhaps some people just don't like president Obama's politics. If I recall, a majority of white people voted for president Obama.

        The bush crime family are not christians, by the deeds they did, they were war mongers rather than peace makers, they would take from the poor to give to the rich, they want to take from the elderly, the children, the veterans anyone who is not rich the bush crime family wanted to harm, this is not christian, even though george bush called himself a christian he is not, you can judge a tree by the fruit it bares, if a apple tree start to bare lemons then you know something is wrong with that tree and the fruit the the bush crime family bared was evil, they are liars, they lied to start a war for oil, they did everything that Jesus was against, just like the republicons are doing to the have not's, this is not christian, Jesus loved the poor and he loved the rich, Jesus helped the sick, the poor etc. all these hypocrites like george bush and the republicons want to do is destroy the have not's.

    • maury wills

      Actaully he is half black and half white…. not that it makes any difference, just felt the facts needed to be stated!

    • samantoob

      HOW TRUE….. ONLY BECAUSE OBAMA IS BLACK …GUESS WHAT? THEIR HEARTS ARE BLACKER THAN TAR AND BLACKER THAN ANY BLACK MAN'S SKIN

  • addy

    The definition of a Christian is someone who believes that Jesus Christ is the son of God who died on the cross for our sin. Even Satan believes this. Just because someone says they are a Christian does not mean that they follow God. If you believe in the Holy Bible, it says you will know them by their fruits, the fruits of the spirit. Anyone who willfully goes against God's word will not enter into the kingdom of heaven. If you believe in the bible as God's word, please take heed.
    As for Obama, I will not be the one to judge him, but his actions are not that of a godly man.

      • Correction

        I reject your ignorance. Neither Jews or Muslims accept Jesus as God. That is a fundamental difference between Christianity and every other "religion". The Bible says that Jesus is the WORD, and the WORD became flesh. I.e. Jesus is both God/Human at the same time. God entered the world as a Human if you believe that. Faith isn't about the approval of atheists, it's about the approval of God. We don't believe because you choose not to. We believe because we cannot help it. We were designed to worship something. Some people worship Football, Some people worship Lebron James, Some people worship George Clooney. All have become IDOLs, present day Golden Calfs. As for me and my house, we will worship the LORD.

      • Abrahamic Duh

        So Jesus isn't the son of god, he is god. Okay, you're the ignorant one. Maybe read your book once in a while.

    • Ohio guest

      AMEN and AMEN!! — as far as Roma and Marks love for the POTUS and him a christian .. i have lost my respect for the angel she once played

    • samantoob

      YOU SO-CALLED CHRISTIAN. NOT EVERYONE WHO SAY LORD, LORD WILL ENTER THE KINGDOM OF GOD! YOU HAVE ALREADY JUDGED. NOT EVERY ONE WHO BELIEVES THEY ARE CHRISTIANS ARE CHRISTIANS.
      OBAMA IS THE PRESIDENT …OBAMA IS BLACK…. OBAMA IS OUR LEADER… DEAL WITH IT OR JUST SHUT UP. WHEN YOU HAVE NOTHING TO SAY. SHUT UP! SAY NOTHING.

  • Jamal

    Obama is just hollywood's president. He's no leader to us. The middle class are hurting and lets not forget the poor class….which most of us are.

    • samantoob

      AND THE REASON WE ARE ALL HURTING IS BECAUSE OF HATE FOR A …BLACK…PRESIDENT, THE HATE IS >>>> HE IS BLACK AND IN YOUR FACES…JUST DEAL WITH IT AND GET AMERICA BACK ON TRACK OR WE ARE ALL IN A BIG MESS……

      BEING BLINDED BY THE COLOR OF A MAN'S SKIN IS SO LAME. AMERICA IS DISGRACED BY IT'S OWN PEOPLE…. HOW VERY SAD FOR US ALL!!!!

  • Marley from Chicago

    People are always talking about Obama doesnt do anything for us but the republican reps don't allow him to pass anything to help the people. Every time he comes up with a plan that would benefit the middle and lower class it gets shut down in congress. If Mitt was in office everything he would be making up would become law which is why I'm glad the majority didnt vote for him.

    If you are still upset that we have a black president learn politics and run for office. Otherwise stfu

      • Marley from Chicago

        Okay but he's classified as black. He is the first "african american" president. Not first 1/2 "white" president.

        Not saying you are racist (I am not racist either, btw) but many people put color before policy. His policy, if ever passed, is better than policies of former and future republican reps.

      • 318mopar

        Obama is a leftist socialist, He was mentored by a communist growing up in Hawaii, he was also with associated with left wing radicals such as Bill Ayers. He wants to change this country into a socialist country. Punish people who worked hard to built a successful business.
        Obama doesn't know how run a business or balance a budget, Obama care will not create jobs or lower insurance, his green jobs policy is nothing but a slush fund that gives tax payer money to failed companies in exchange for votes.

      • jeff

        well history hasin twenty years ago the country was ok…….. now we got him so whats the excuse ????????? tooo many hand outs………. not enough workers…….. tooo proud…………………….. i aint gonna……. it should be you dont have a choice then we have a country

    • 318mopar

      What Obama plan are you talking about ? Do mean over taxing small business and over regulating small businesses so they won't hire anyone or they hire just part time employees.

    • Jamal

      Thanks mwb- for some reason WGN has screened 2 of my words and they weren't bad words . Hollywood got him into office. Beyonce , Jay-Z, Micheal Jordan , who never endorses anyone, had endorsed Obama. The list of celebrities is outstanding. The media pushed in favor of Obama. Romney never stood a fair chance and everyone i Know is dissappointed in the outcome. Now they say that this actor for the Bible serious is causing a stir. To whom exactly?? Im not offended, i havnt heard Obama's input yet. So who is offended by this? No one! The media just trying to cause trouble.

      • Jhill

        Most people that are "Hollywood" are way liberal to start with, so it's not surprising that they sided with him over romney

  • Jim in IN

    Why didn't WGN say he looked like Steve Sanders with a tan in a hoodie? I cannot believe how Tabloid the news media has become! It is disgusting that WGN continually fans the flames of hatred. Just look at the comments! If the news media knew how to take the high road, they would have ignored such a ridiculous comparison. I think it is 'rating retaliation' against the History Channel from the media.

    • samantoob

      AGAIN, HERE COME SKIN IN BETWEEN…. OBAMA IS THE PRESIDENT. OBAMA IS A BLACK PRESIDENT IN YOUR FACES LIKE IT OR NOT

    • samantoob

      PLEASE YOU JUST KEEP ON AND CONTINUE SERVING SATAN….YOUR MASTER AND FRIEND.
      RICHARD PLEASE STAY THERE. EVIL BEGETS EVIL… AND YOUR WHOLE BEING IS AS BLACK AS A DEMONS HEART AND YOU KNOW IT.

  • keeping real

  • Shamus Veritas

    The Devil looks like President Obama, and talks like my Ethnic grandfather with a thick accent and the lucky charm producers of this racist fairy tale are denying anything's wrong? Okay.

    Some things never change.

    • samantoob

      SUCH A SAD CASE OF HATE….NO DOCTOR OR GOD CAN HELP UNLESS YOU CHANGE.
      IT'S EASIER FOR A CAMEL TO GO THROUGH THE EYE OF A NEEDLE THAN AN ARROGANT MAN TO SEE THAT OUR NATION NEEDS ALL OUR SUPPORT FOR THIS "BLACK AND IN YOUR FACE PRESIDENT"

  • 318mopar

    I'm sure that when it's Time for the Academy awards and Oscars awards, this series on the History channel,' The Bible' will be completely ignored by Hollywood Film Actors Gild even though the series is getting great reviews and ratings.

  • Stephanie

    I don think the people who filmed The Bible or Directors, ever INTENDED on having the Actor "LOOK" Like Obama, This Actor has been known to play Satan in different Bibical Programs, Not just this one. Also the people who created this, They worked with no one but the best, the show is

  • Stephanie

    a great show, its awesome, and you can't lie , it does put a visualisation on the Bible , but it makes you want to read it more. and understand the full story. Now, People need to lay off with the Ethic topic, that has nothing to do with it, his face was shadowed, it was made to look grey and old, it was made to look dark, not black skin at all, it looked just knawing . He's made to look like a dark shadow, and he looks like one. Skin coloring has nothing to do with it. ALL you people like other types of movies and use your imagination with that, but maybe since this had such an impact and offence on people, maybe its something else that made it click in our minds that we found found that resemblance, CHILL out, and ITS AN AWESOME SHOW, and ive watched so many interviews with the two individuals who produced this and i dont believe that their work that they created was done to intend any thing but a

    • Stephanie

      great thing for us. Pay attention, ps. I dont think the angel that appeared to Mary or Joseph looked like that, but its about the story. Its about what happened. Nothing is a coincidence , I dont think anybody seriously intended on this actually looking like Obama, but isnt it just weird how it set off that resemblance? I cant believe this is in newspapers and has become so controversial , SATANS always gottaaa find his way to butt in. pft. Seriously pisses me off though that people really gotta do crap like this, dramaaaaaqueeens.

    • samantoob

      GOD HELP YOU, ONLY IF YOU ASK HIM TO….YOU'VE GOT A BLACK HEART AND NOT ONLY BLOOD RUNNING THROUGH IT…. HATE CAN GIVE YOU A SERIOUS HEART ATTACK… MAY GOD HELP YOU.

    • samantoob

      PLEASE GO BACK TO THE BIBLE… WHERE IN GOD'S WORD DOES IT SAY JESUS IS/WAS WHITE???… NOWHERE!
      GO BACK TO WORD OF GOD. IT SAYS…STUDY TO SHOW YOURSELF APPROVE UNTO GOD A WORKMAN/PERSON THAT NEEDS TO BE SHAMMED WHO CORRECTLY HANDLES OR STUDY THE WORD OF TRUTH.."THE BIBLE"
      DO NOT TAKE THE WORD OF GOD OUT OF CONTEXT, OR YOU'RE DAMNED ALREADY!!!

  • Ablitive

    Not only dose Obama look like the Devil, but his number also adds up to the beast.!!!….Obama is 44th president of the United States of America and the word "Beast" is mentioned in its singular form 44 times in the book of Revelations. ……

    ..Barack Obama Born 4 August 1961 the 216th day of the year. 216 = 6x6x6…….

    .A=6 B=12 C=18 D=24 E=36 etc. BARACK = 216 = 6X6X6………….

    .A=1 B=2 C=3 D=4 E=5 F=6 G=7 H=8 I=9 J=10 K=11 L=12 M= 13 N=14 O=15 P=16 Q=17 R=18 S=19 T=20 U=21 V=22 W=23 X=24 Y=25 Z=26.

    Barack: = 2+1+18+1+3+11=36
    Hussein= 8+21+19+19+5+9+14=95
    Obama = 15+2+1+13+1=32
    Add these three totals 36+95+32=163
    Multiply by the Beast: = 1 63 x 666 = 108,558
    Split and Add: = 108 + 558 = 666.

    From all the above compiling evidence we can now take it for granted that Barack Obama is set to be the Devil incarnate from the Book of Revelations.

    • Brenda

      Somebody has been doing some real studying ,That thought that he could be the AntiChrist first popped into my head before he became the president in 2008. We must get him out of the White house. but it's not for me to judge. God will overcome

    • samantoob

      BUT YOUR NUMBER IS ALREADY UP…..YOU JUST DON'T KNOW IT YET…SATAN ALREADY HAVE YOU AND USING YOU….. YOU ARE A DISGRACE TO THE AMERICA DECENT PEOPLE LOVE.

      OBAMA WILL STAY BLACK AND IN YOUR FACE..DEAL WITH IT.

      AMERICA IS HURTING BECAUSE OF DUMMIES AND IDIOTS SUCH AS YOURSELF….
      PRAY TO GOD FOR HELP.
      TRUE AMERICANS WILL BE PRAYING AND HELPING PRESIDENT OBAMA
