Another Lying Worldnetdaily Headline

Remember that ridiculous controversy over the miniseries The Bible and the fact that the actor portraying Satan looked a bit like President Obama? The Worldnetdaily was all over the story then now they have a headline that declares, “Obama gets Satan cut from ‘Son of God.'” That’s the movie remake of the miniseries. But the article itself doesn’t even try to claim that Obama actually did anything.

Roma Downey, who co-produced the film with her husband Mark Burnett, says scenes with an actor who portrayed the devil but looked like the president have now been edited out.

“It gives me great pleasure to tell you that the devil is on the cutting-room floor. This is now a movie about Jesus, the Son of God, and the devil gets no more screentime,” Downey told the Hollywood Reporter…

For this new project, Downey told the Hollywood Reporter she’s eager to avoid a similar situation, even though Jesus and Satan both made their appearance in “The Bible” miniseries during the same episode, so it would have made sense that “Son of God” also include Satan.

“Someone made a comment that the actor who played the devil vaguely resembled our president, and suddenly the media went nuts,” Downey said Monday. “The next day, when I was sure everyone would only be talking about Jesus, they were talking about Satan instead.”

She added: “For our movie, Son of God, I wanted all of the focus to be on Jesus. I want his name to be on the lips of everyone who sees this movie, so we cast Satan out. It gives me great pleasure to tell you that the devil is on the cutting-room floor.”

In other words, the reason they cut it is because “news” outlets like the Worldnetdaily kept talking about it to stir up controversy, which means Obama didn’t “get” anything cut. WND lies as easily as they breathe.

    Lying is like oxygen. Lying is a many-splendored thing. Lying shoves us down where we belong.

    So the forty days in the desert is just Jesus talking to himself?

    I want his name to be on the lips of everyone who sees this movie

    “Jesus Christ, that movie sucked!”

    The article goes on to provide pictures of Obama with a fly as “proof” that he’s Beelzebub. I’m beginning to think WND is, in fact, satirical, even though loyal readers take it seriously..

    “The Existence of Obama Results in Scenes With Actor Who Plays Satan But According to Us Looks Like Obama (Who is Satanic) Being Cut From Jesus Movie” is too long for the masthead.

    Yes, but see, they only stirred up that controversy because Obama was provoking them so much with his unbridled KenyanMuslimCommieAnti-Christness. They just had no choice, and now they’ve cut Satan from the movie, which clearly was what Obama had wanted all along – I mean, why else would somebody purposefully be a KenyanMuslimCommieAnti-Christ? It all always comes back to Obama being responsible.

    I’m curious how they filmed the whole Bible anyway. For instance Leviticus 3:2 “You are to lay your hand on the head of your offering and slaughter it at the entrance to the tent of meeting. Then Aaron’s sons the priests shall splash the blood against the sides of the altar” doesn’t sound like fun tv to me. Not to mention the practicalities of getting enough livestock for multiple takes of every animal sacrifice in the book.

    It’s obvious that Obama was behind this. If he did resemble Satan in the first place, they wouldn’t have to talk about it so much, would they?
