The History Channel's mini-series, "The Bible," has a Satan that the Right Wing undoubtedly accepts as "Change we can believe in." Update!

Satan from the History channel's mini-series "The Bible."
Now look unlike a certain ex-quitter from Alaska, I actually DO believe in coincidences and think they happen all of the time.

However....

...this one is a little hard to swallow.

I mean even somebody as disconnected from reality as Glen Beck, was able to put two and two together. (I assume he used a calculator.)
Yeah, when even the mentally challenged paste eaters in the corner pick up on it, then you know it is not just an accident.

After all Mark Burnett is the uber-Christian producer of numerous reality shows, including the one starring the aforementioned half term Governor.

And it is kind of hard to think "coincidence" when this is how he described the series even before it was broadcast:  

"The Bible is the foundation of this nation, of our laws, of our society," Burnett said. "There wouldn't have been the Declaration of Independence. President Obama swore his allegiance to all of us not on one Bible, on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s Bible and Abraham Lincoln's bible last month. It's on our money: 'In God We Trust.'"

Hmm, interesting how he was already a little focused on our President, don't you think?

Of course since this whole thing blew up yesterday, the denials have already started:  

Mark Burnett and Roma Burnett 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. (No he hasn't.)

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.”

Uh huh. Well hell if you can't believe an angel then who can your believe, right?

But let's, for the moment, put aside the idea that Mark Burnett purposefully used his program to equate the President of the United States, with Satan, and move on to another question.

Such as why, if indeed Burnett was trying to make a film worthy to be shown on a channel called "The History Channel," did he make his Jesus look like this?

When scientists agree that, if he existed at all, he should look more like this?


I mean doesn't it bother anybody else that the devil is portrayed as a black man, while Jesus is portrayed by an actor who looks like he could be cast as an Aryan Gestapo agent in a film about Nazi Germany?

But hey, I am sure THAT does not make Mark Burnett, his angelic wife, or the History Channel racist either.

Right?

Update: Here is Mehdi Ouzaani, the actor who plays Satan, before his makeup.

 Yeah, I think that pretty much drives the point home.

    9. You know you have to wonder when President Obama and Michelle are out of office what they are going to say about all this shit that's been said about them! I'd like to think that they must LAUGH their asses off whenever Baldy says her stupid shit and this Devil/Satan shit must really have them rolling in the aisles!

      Because to me the best weapon against these shit for brains idiots...Baldy....Republicans in Congress/Senate...the Fake News network....is LAUGHTER!

      You can't take what they say seriously! Every day that the President and Michelle are in the White House just makes these nuts nuttier...so eventually someone...don't know who (betting on Baldy though) is going to slip the fuck up and call the man what they've been wanting to call him since he took the oath of office in 2009...the N-word!

      Baldy is thisclose to going there...she just needs a little bit more Meth/Vodka/Adderall speedball and video footage of the President saying...."WHO?" when a dumbass reporter ask him about the tranny man Baldy Louise Heath Palin to send her into Dr Laura land! Amirite RAM or amirite! LOL!!!

      Yes, that's true, but their target demo is afraid of 'satan' because he's black to begin with. Plus, they can imagine that everything they've ever done wrong is his fault for tempting them and making them do something 'bad'.

      Likewise, every problem this country has had for the past 30 years is now blamed on President Obama. It doesn't matter that he wasnt elected when the market crashed. It happened because... Obama. Republican Senator Larry Craig caught trying to find a little gay sex in a public restroom? Obama's fault as well, since Craig was tempted by the forbidden fruit.

      The Fundies have never done anything wrong that wasn't someone else's fault. We must keep that in mind and point a finger at ourselves anytime the chosen few of especially pious ones are caught doing something they preach against or even worse.

    Wasn't it the History Channel that produced that much-hyped "Face of Jesus" program, where they determined through some scientific analysis of ... was it the Shroud of Turin? Something from that era... that Jesus looked just like a typical Middle Eastern person?

    On the other hand, I have a relative that swears there were light-skinned, even light-haired people in that area that had traveled there from Europe (on the back of a swimming donkey, I suppose), and that it is entirely possible that Jesus looked just like Ted Neeley.

    Satan, though? Definitely a dark-skinned dude in a hoodie. I think it says in the bible "hide thee pale women from that thug angel"... it's in the Book of Duderomney, or the Book or Genetics or something. Promise. Pinky-swear.

    O’Donnell Delivers Epic Takedown Of ‘Comedian’ Sarah Palin… And Any Reporters Who Still Take Her Seriously

    Lawrence O’Donnell used his “Rewrite” segment Monday night to take on Sarah Palin‘s joke-filled CPAC speech and what hr continued presence on the national stage means for the state of the political media.

    Calling Palin “by far, the best comedian of the 2008 presidential campaign,” O’Donnell admonished members of the “mainstream media” for continuing to take her seriously as a political candidate, especially after she resigned as Alaska’s governor. Instead of maligning the “lamestream media,” O’Donnell said Palin should have been thanking the “even lamer-stream media” for propping her up as a potential GOP frontrunner for 2012.

    “The story of Sarah Palin,” O’Donnell said, “was the story of the failure of the political media who just didn’t get her and actually thought she was still an ambitious politician.” More than ever before, O’Donnell said that at CPAC, Palin “was declaring as loudly as she possibly could that she is a comedian first, political commentator second.”

    O’Donnell proceeded to play a comprehensive montage of Palin’s greatest CPAC “jokes” as a tribute to all the reporters who “failed to comprehend on the day she quit her governorship that she was quitting politics and entering show business.”

    Watch video below, via MSNBC:

    Not a coincidence that 'Satan' was portrayed by a black actor.

    Not a coincidence that the Satan character bears a remarkable resemblance to our President.

    Not a coincidence that 'Jesus' was portrayed with a soft loose-curl perm with highlights accenting his healthy, well- conditioned, blonde hair styled in an 80's style mullet. Jesus also sports a coiffed, trimmed beard, with western facial features and skin tone/complexion. His apparel looks to be a tailored lined outfit of a quality and fit not available to a common with no assets or credit line accessible while traveling throughout the Middle East 2000 + yrs ago. Nope, no coincidences there that something presented as historical would be purposely misrepresented to resemble the culture that this propaganda is targeted to influence.

    And certainly not a coincidence that these two entrepreneurial faux reality creators lie through their fucking teeth about their intentions to deceive low-info, non-critical thinkers into brlieving 'their' version of history. Real history that is documented is pretty interesting in and of itself. But they have to make up shit to tell the story their way.

    I'm going to stop recording the series on DVR and delete what is already recorded. This looks like it would be a waste of time to watch anyway.

    The kkkristyun cult will never accept that their savior was from a culture that would've had a dark olive complexion, with much different features than displayed. And definitely not blonde hair. They might as well do this with hand puppets and call it a 'real' reality show.

But between a crazy-eyed Moses looking like a schizophrenic hearing voices, the "bad guy" Egyptians with their stereotypical "evil" looks, and the uber-pious way the whole thing is done, the series is pretty gag-worthy....

Abraham's wife Sarah was described as a very beautiful woman whom Pharaoh wanted to marry but they depicted her as a hag. They show Moses bringing down the 10 commandments but don't tell us what they were or how Moses found that the Israelites started worshiping idols in his absence. They don't name all of the 12 disciples but they show plenty of close ups of this Mary traveling around with them and put words in her mouth. They even watered down the Last Supper.

    Totally agree here Gryphen. When I first heard about this, the thought was, why use a black man as Satan? I don't even know of what heritage Mehdi is, but it's clear and evident that his portrayal as Satan in the Bible series makes him look exactly like POTUS and makes his skin tone the same tone as President Obama's.

    What in tarnation is going on with all these people, they aren't fooling anybody. This fake innocent "I don't know what you're talking about" is insulting, offensive, totally UNCHRISTIAN.

    Not too long ago, a Christian site interviewed Roma Downey and Mark Burnett and they stated that during filming, strange and weird things happened. While filming John the Baptist being baptized, a strong wind blew on the set(that toppled things over) right during the time that the character mentioned something about the Spirit being like a wind. By telling this, I'd say they don't believe in coincidences. But this "coincidence" that the Satan actor resulted in looking like a black man is not divine coincidence. It is a man-made concoction. Did any divine wind suddenly blow a HOODIE on the actor's head? I'm surprised they didn't have the character holding a big gulp.

    They are dog whistling to their viewers to get the best ratings and have no conscience other than their conscience to leave their kids the biggest inheritance possible. And they also, from what's been reported, publishing a bible series, bible study for churches to purchase for their bible studies. So the Barnetts are cashing in mightily. And not for spreading the gospel in a backpack and sandals. But for $$$. Throw in a Satan that looks like "we know who" for a freebie.

      The younger generations aren't buying into all this religious crap. The technology and scientific discovery that they've been brought up with tends to make them much more skeptical than their elders, thus they are leaving organized religion or never adopting it in the first place.

      Now the insulated religious home schoolers are a different matter entirely, however, they will remain insulated from the real world their entire lives and will leave their homes only to attend second rate religious colleges that have lower standards for home schoolers. Those kids are hopeless and yes, will probably think of Obama when they think of their imaginary Satan. Their numbers are few and they are to be pitied.

    I remembered seeing this during campaign. Looks pretty realistic. Perhaps Sarah's close friends coincidentally used were limited in how close they could depict Satan to Obama's likeness bc theirs was a live model with makeup applied, not generated generally. Still, not likely a coincidence, as many of the Fundies ply their trade based upon the "EVIL" of our President and how he wants to purposely destroy this country. Burnett & Wife are lying shills. The $ that was donated to elections was chump change based on their incomes, and it's not surprising that they would attend fund raisers in Hollywood, as that is where they generate their trashy programming.

    I've always pictured Satan in my mind, when and if I do so, as a person who could fade into a crowd, and work his evil without calling attention to himself. He takes on many disguises to be able to destroy the good in the world.

    We've had modern-day Satans: Josef Stalin, Adolph Hitler, Robert Mugabe, Mao Tse Tung, Pol Pot. Many more were they came from. Satan can express himself in many different ways.

    Someone who makes a TV portayal of Satan looking like a black person, and a black person we all know, is working evil to corrupt the minds of the ignorant.

    from a HuffPo article titled "The Ethnic Cleansing of Judaism in Medieval and Renaissance Art"

    "della Francesco's paintings, typical of other Medieval and Renaissance artworks, are distortions and misrepresentations of biblical history. They fail to convey accurately who Jesus, his family, and community were: dedicated, orthodox practicing Jews. The two centerpieces of the Frick exhibit, Piero della Francesco's altarpiece painting Virgin and Child Enthroned with Four Angels and the large polyptych Sant'Agostino altarpiece, like the bulk of Medieval and Renaissance paintings, transform working-class Galilean village Jews into fair-skinned, blond, Northern European latter-day Christians. They are depicted in palatial settings with latter-day Christian saints, angels and anachronistic artifacts, without a trace or hint of their Jewish identities."

    "these pervasive distortions established a powerful platform for anti-Semitism by feeding the illusion that Jesus was a Christian in contrast to the Jews -- the others who "persecuted" him. Fact is that Jews were the sole body of Jesus' followers, and they were all from the same Semitic tribe."

    There's a verse, if ye all don't mind. This from my christian perspective.

    Paul warned about false apostles and deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. "And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works." 2 Cor. 11

    I've heard sermons on how Satan, the father of lies, will and can manisfest himself in ways that hoodwink people away from Christ. If Christ loves ALL men like the bible says, which includes all colors, creeds and everything in between, the superiority complex dog-whistlers, like Barnett et al, are mesmerized by some masqueraded angel of light. THey actually painted an actors face to represent Satan. What color? A beautiful color that was created for the Creator's pleasure. But the 'pout-trout angels of light" who glorify their works and make up some satanic figure to look like God's creation, who the bible says "men are made in His image" render a black-faced man as "evil". They have one version: Jesus prefers white only; only one thing I can draw from this deception is that they are what Paul was talking about: False apostles.

    This series was a disgrace from the beginning. Anyone who even portrays God in any way form or fashion is pretty unconvicted by the bible in the first place. Even Moses couldn't look upon God. No man has seen God the bible says. Jesus didn't include a DVD of his life in the Word. These visual aides do nothing to improve a believer's faith in Him. If there's money and profit behind a presentation of who Jesus is, then it's not the real Jesus. Plain and simple.

    CNN’s Erin Burnett Bashes Glenn Beck’s ‘Ugly History’ Of Calling Obama ‘Satan’ After Tweet About The Bible

    Glenn Beck created a bit of a sensation this past weekend when he tweeted a photo of the Devil from The History Channel’s The Bible mini-series and noted that beared a resemblance to “that guy” (AKA President Obama). Last night on CNN, Erin Burnett used her opinion-laden “Erin’s Essay” segment to go after Beck for what she saw as just another instance of his tendency to compare the president to Satan.

    Not only was Jesus Middle Eastern, but - according to Biblical myth - he was so unremarkable in looks that the disciple Judas Iscariot kissed Jesus as a way to point out to the Roman Guard which man to seize. I'm pretty sure if he'd been a pasty white guy, the Judas Kiss would have been unnecessary. He'd have just told the Guard to grab the white dude.

    History's "The Bible" would be more accurately titled "The Bible's Greatest Hits (Sanitized for Your Protection)."

    But give the 10-hour, five-part program credit for being up front about its intentions. Sunday's premiere begins with this get-out-of-jail-free disclaimer: "This program is an adaptation of Bible stories that changed our world. It endeavors to stay true to the spirit of the book."

    Sunday's premiere is indeed true to the spirit of the good book if a bit sparing on details. The story begins with a Scottish-accented Noah narrating from Genesis as his ark bobs on high seas. His narration includes the briefest of visits with Adam and Eve before "The Bible" (8 p.m. Sunday) moves on to the story of Abraham, which takes up much of the first two hours.

    Nothing here is as ridiculous as NBC's 1999 "Noah's Ark" miniseries, the nadir of biblical interpretation that featured Noah warding off pirates. But "The Bible" probably should not be taken too seriously or venerated. It often plays more like an action film than a serious interpretation of a holy book.

    Sunday's premiere presents multi-ethnic angels who take human form to visit Sodom and Gomorrah, where angry villagers rage against Lot for reasons that go unexplained. The God of "The Bible" describes Sodom as a "city of sin," but the program is ambiguous about what that sin includes (it mostly looks like a freak show with people blowing fire). "The Bible" does not suggest the Sodomites are planning to rape the angels, a common interpretation. The angels draw swords -- in slow-mo, Quentin Tarantino style -- and slay villagers who seek to do them harm.

    Jesus (Diego Morgado) arrives by episode six (airing March 17) and gets crucified in episode nine (airing March 31, Easter), which also features Roma Downey ("Touched by an Angel") as Mary, Jesus' mother.

    Ms. Downey also serves as an executive producer on "The Bible" with her husband, "Survivor" executive producer Mark Burnett. They have not shared this credit before, making it feel like a cynical attempt to trade on viewers' residual goodwill for Ms. Downey from her "Touched by an Angel" days, an effort to reassure the faithful that "The Bible" is fit for their consumption.
