Oh the blasphemy! Muhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!
(The Blaze) –On Monday, TheBlaze alerted readers to a new painting that depicts Barack Obama as Jesus Christ crucified, adorned with a crown of thorns. The work, entitled “Truth,” is part of a larger exhibit at the Bunker Hill Community College Art Gallery in Boston titled “Artists on the Stump – the Road to the White House 2012.” This, of course, is not the first controversial rendition that has been labeled “artwork,” nor is it the first time President Obama has been likened to Christ, or in general, God.
At some point, Beck decided that submerging an Obama “bobblehead” doll in urine (later revealed to be completely fake) was necessary to convey his artistic message. He of course realizes this will be controversial and that many will find his use of the Obama figurine to be disrespectful. The idea, for Beck however, is not to be untoward, but through irony, to highlight the hypocrisy of those who would shout in defiance at defacing the image of a sitting U.S. president, but not that of an image so sacred to Christianity — the world’s largest religion.
Of course, Beck’s “art” is similar to the infamous anti-Christian photograph titled “Piss Christ,” showing a small plastic crucifix soaked in the artist’s real urine.
Video of the unveiling of “Flobama” AKA “Obama In Pee Pee”:
eBay has removed Glenn Beck’s “Obama in Pee Pee”, which had already been going for $11,000 on the auction website after less than an hour. All of the money from the auction would have been donated to Mercury One charity and their Hope for the Holidays fund.
Down, but not out.
…stay tuned for an update on how we will be auctioning this item.
