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.
