History Channel’s Incredibly Obama-Like Satan

Coincidence? We don’t think so.

I was ready to dismiss this story as an over-reaction: History Channel’s Satan Looks a Lot Like Barack Obama.

…until I read this: Hollywood Couple Created ‘The Bible’ Mini-Series to ‘Set the Record Straight’.

First, the reality TV show guru Mark Burnett — the man who made Donald Trump a TV star and “you’re fired” a household catch-phrase, who changed the television landscape with “Survivor,” which just debuted its 27th season, and created the ever-popular “Shark Tank” and “The Voice” — is now taking on a project truly biblical in scale.

[…]

“The Bible is the foundation of this nation, of our laws, of our society,” Burnett said. “There wouldn’t have been the Declaration of Independence. President Obama swore his allegiance to all of us not on one Bible, on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s Bible and Abraham Lincoln’s bible last month. It’s on our money: ‘In God We Trust.’”

Nope. It’s not a coincidence, and this is far from the first time the religious right has foisted this scary horror story on their gullible followers.

Mark Burnett was also the producer of “Sarah Palin’s Alaska.”

Glenn Beck is also convinced this is no coincidence:

More context on the ideology behind this show: Roma Downey and Mark Burnett: Why Public Schools Should Teach the Bible.

The Bible has affected the world for centuries in innumerable ways, including art, literature, philosophy, government, philanthropy, education, social justice and humanitarianism. One would think that a text of such significance would be taught regularly in schools. Not so. That is because of the “stumbling block” (the Bible again) that is posed by the powers that be in America.

It’s time to change that, for the sake of the nation’s children. It’s time to encourage, perhaps even mandate, the teaching of the Bible in public schools as a primary document of Western civilization.

We know firsthand of its educational value, having grown up in Europe—Mark in England, Roma in Ireland—where Bible teaching was viewed as foundational to a well-rounded education. Now that we are naturalized U.S. citizens, we want to encourage public schools in America to give young people the same opportunity.

This is one of the reasons we created “The Bible,” a 10-part miniseries premiering March 3 on the History Channel that dramatizes key stories from Scriptures. It will encourage audiences around the world to open or reopen Bibles to understand and enjoy these stories.
