Boston Community College Art Gallery To Display Painting Depicting Obama As Crucified Christ. What say you?

CAPISCE 2012/11/27 00:49:10
A painting that features President Obama posed as Jesus Christ crucified on a cross is on display at a community college art gallery in Boston.

The painting by Michael D’Antuono is part of a larger exhibit called “Artists on the Stump – the Road to the White House 2012.” It’s on display at the Bunker Hill Community College Art Gallery until Dec. 15th.

The painting is called “Truth” – and shows the president on the cross with his arms outstretched. A crown of thorns rests on his head.

It was originally supposed to debut nearly four years ago at New York City’s Union Square. But that event was cancelled due to public outrage.

“I always regretted cancelling my exhibit in New York because I feel my First Amendment rights should override someone’s hurt feelings,” D’Antuono told Fox News. “We should celebrate the fact that we live in a country where we are given the freedom to express ourselves.”

A spokesperson for the art gallery said there hasn’t been any criticism of the painting.

D’Antuono said the public exhibition “has afforded me the ability to right a wrong.”

He dismissed critics who called the display blasphemous.

“The crucifixion of the president was meant metaphorically,” . “My intent was not to compare him to Jesus.”

    He may think he is god but this is completely disrespectful to Jesus Christ. Christ is our savior not Omama!

    My first thought after reading the comment at the bottom... is HE IS a LYRE... his intent was absolutely to compare Oblah Blah to Jesus....

    “My intent was not to compare him to Jesus.”
    Seems to be a reoccurring theme, comparing Obobo to Jesus. Just remember, however, say nothing "bad" about Mohammad.

    A more appropriate picture would be Obama's pic or draft as a naked king.
    Symbolizing the king is naked, his promises are as a cheque without cover.
    Taking it one notch further, I would NOT draw balls, where there should have appeared...
  • Mav 2012/11/27 10:51:57
    I say its extremely insulting to Jesus and his people both Jews and Christians. And even if i wasn't Christian i'd be against it for the simple fact that its "meant" to be an insult.

  • Andrew 2012/11/27 08:00:36
    Best way to protest this depiction is to stay home and not go see it! We all know here are those who can't separate the true Savior of mankind from this imposter. Only thing we can do about it is tell the story of the one (Jesus Christ) who can really make a difference in their lives!
  • History... Andrew 2012/11/27 08:19:06
    What difference? People from every other religion or belief could say the same thing, with just as much certainty. Christianity and Islam (the two big dogs, in terms of religion), have only served to stand as justification for genocides and millions of deaths throughout history, and repress human social/scientific progress.
  • Andrew History... 2012/11/27 10:11:48
    Sounds like you have some ax to grind! Anyone who makes the comments you just did can't see the reality of the great good Christianity has given the world. Of course some evil has been perpatrated by some bearing the name of Christ! That is a shame, but more good has been done in the name of Jesus by far! The difference Christ makes in a person's life is to change their destiny in spite of their sin! Jesus Christ came for the purpose of saving sinners, which includes all of us! I am thankful that he did!

    D'Antuono forgot to place Obama's feet in a jar of urine then splatter elephant dung all over the canvass, now there’s ‘art.’
  • TheTruth1313 2012/11/27 07:15:50
    Well, admittedly, I'm torn here...on the one hand, the idea of the liar in chief being crucified does tend to make me smile. However, I'm not so sure I like the context.
  • Broken 2012/11/27 05:47:54
    Outrageou! He is a liar to say he did not compare Mr. O to Christ. The Christians are insulted! But where are the protests and riots and deth threats like when the Islamists get insulted?

    If you've ever spent time at or near an "art college" you will know there is a liklihood of meeting more than one borderline insane mind wrapped up in "self" and narcissism. At
    such a place these persons can claim their delusions and offensive scribbles are "art" and
    "expression" of some worthwhile purpose. The results of bad parenting often show up at
    places like this, searching for attention. Ignore them and they eventually go away.

    I didn't realize they crucified Muslims, or does this mean that Obama is a Jew? Well, wait a minute, he can't be a Roman citizen and he's not a ... what is he that he gets crucified if the "artist" says the name of it is "Truth"? Oh, does that mean that Obama is a criminal and being punished as such? Yeah, that's the ticket. Obama is a criminal, broke Roman law, and was crucified for his crimes. Now, THAT's the "Truth" ... What a complete piece of garbage.
