Is Obama Satan? The History Channel Says, ‘Eh, Probably’

Earlier this month, The History Channel launched a new miniseries called The Bible… and boy did they find a way to market it!

As if the source material wasn’t good enough (people love that Bible!), the series figured out another way to garner interest in the world’s most famous book: they cast a Barack Obama lookalike to play the character of Satan.

Noted Satan lover Glenn Beck noticed the coincidence, tweeted it, and off to the races the Internet went.

You can see the two side-by-side above.

Despite what you or Glenn Beck think, producers of the series say, “”This is utter nonsense. The actor who played Satan, Mehdi Ouazanni, is a highly acclaimed Moroccan actor. He has previously played parts in several Biblical epics– including Satanic characters long before Barack Obama was elected as our President.”

Wait… He’s been playing Satan before Obama was even elected??? IT WAS FORETOLD!

I definitely recommend tuning into future episodes of The Bible. WHO KNOWS HOW THIS THING WILL END????

Jesus lives, right??

    Get over it already people. The better man won.

    I don’t think we can fault the History Channel for the creative decisions involved in casting and make-up. Producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey have not denied that these were their decisions. And people certainly have a right to react to those decisions more ways than simply with their remote controls.
