- Michael D'Antuono's “Truth” depicts President Barack Obama as Jesus Christ
“Truth” is the name of this unusual painting of President Barack Obama as Jesus Christ. The piece is on display at the Bunker Hill Community College Art Gallery in Boston.
Art is most appreciated when it provides the shock factor, and Obama as Jesus sure does do that. Michael D'Antuono was supposed to unveil his work in New York's Union Square four years ago, however was banned from doing so after a record number of complaints.
His artwork is now included in the “Artists on the Stump – the Road to the White House 2012” exhibit, Daily Mail
Obama appears to be crucified in the painting – his arms are stretched to the sides, and he wears a crown of thorns, while he looks down.
I believe his attire, depicted in blue, red and white, is meant to symbolize the fact that he is taking one for the country.

This is a HUGE AFFRONT to God and the christian community. America was founded on the principle of religious freedom. Look how far we have strayed.

Mr. Obama is an Enlightened One. Other enlightened ones can see it. The depiction of Obama as Jesus is accurate, as we are all One, and this overrides the constrictions of time and space too. It's all Here and Now. The president is in awareness of his role and Who He Is - we are all the same; the only difference is that he knows it, most of us do not.

Hahahahahahahahaha - once I stop laughing at the absurdity, I have to wonder what ignorant fool would even think of such a thing.

this is horrible. Jesus is our savior and obama cant save anyone from anything.. shame shame. throw this filthy thing away and the artist with it.
|Comment #10 by: image on 28 Nov 2012, 16:45 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I do not thnk this painting is appropriate at all. The Bible tells us not to have images, of Jesus....idols....
|Comment #12 by: stephus ohreallyus on 28 Nov 2012, 16:45 UTC|| reply to this comment|
Gee whiz...as a happy Methodist and dedicated Christian but also as an educated art historian i see this work as quirky and Dadaistic. Nothing to be scared of if one is truly faithful and confident in that belief. not sure the statement/idea of our President-reelect being crucified is accurate since He did win another term instead of being sacrificied like Jesus, who laid down His life for His friends and for us all. Dr. King might be an appropriate parallel. My grandmother always respected the President, whether She happened to vote for Him or not...this is my hope for all Americans now.

This should be taken down immediately and destroyed. Jesus was God incarnate, but Obama is only human.
|Comment #14 by: Rev. C on 28 Nov 2012, 16:55 UTC|| reply to this comment|
I actually think this is very perceptive. One, that Obama has tried to straighten out our "American Way of Life" and two; that the "Tea Party" conservatives have stopped all the "positives" he has done or is trying to do. He isn't Jesus but perhaps he is trying to incorporate the spiritual thoughts of Jesus....Very interesting artwork. Carolyn, CT

Probably the worst thing Ive seen EVER. Except for the picture of Chris Stevens being drug to his death, which was horrifying in a whole different way. DISGUSTINGLY DISRESPECTING PUTRIDNESS. SHAME ON EVERYONE WHO HAD A PART IN THIS.
|Comment #16 by: Roundman on 28 Nov 2012, 17:17 UTC|| reply to this comment|
This is sick we all know that obama does not care for America or for Americans there is no way he would lay down his life willing for America not when he is trying to do away with our Freedom of Religion!!!!!

Wow a lot of people hating on this painting because it 'offends" their religion? Art is expressionism, no one is making you look at this. Appreciate it for what it is, a very awesome painting. Oh, be sure to check out this new thing called evolution, I'm sure you'll notice the lack of 'God' in there.
|Comment #19 by: mdw on 28 Nov 2012, 17:28 UTC|| reply to this comment|
no one even President Obama should not be put into the same classification as Jesus, truth be told, if there was ever a time of when we as the world needed Jesus to return it sure is NOW
Obama does try to show love and forgiveness with some people who in my opinion, does not deserve it, but he does, i would like to believe that does come from his heart, he is not doing that just for political points

There is only one person that I know of(from what I read in the Bible wish is the Word Of God "King James Version") that was ever spoken and written about ,that was ever Hung on the Cross and was Crucifed was Jesus Christ Himself. Some-times in life we all may feel at some point, the pressure and burdens and the care's of our personal struggle and life disappoints that can weigh very heavey upon each and every one of us, as we travel along on this road that is call life. All of us as people need too do, is just keep on living, we shall soon find out it not a bed of rose's out here during the course of our lives. Some days are easy then others, then their are days that you would like to put your head in the * . But, we know as human being we can't do that, so we keep on pushing ahead too see what life itself will offer us. It doesn't matter if you our young and old, rich or poor, we all have a testament of life that we can all share with someone. Singing off as (T.O.Life).

this should not be on display either, there is only one Christ and all the nuts will find it revolting against the church. i also feel displaying the President being crucified in anyway is Treason.
