Earlier in the week comedian and actor Jamie Foxx referred to Barack Obama as “God and our lord and savior” at the Soul Train Awards. In that article I linked to previous paintings and such that showed how many have depicted Obama in a blasphemous light. “Artist” Michael D’Antuono has offered his painting of Barack Obama in mock crucifixion and is now on display at a Boston community college art gallery.“I always regretted cancelling my exhibit in New York because I feel my First Amendment rights should override someone’s hurt feelings,” [artist Michael] 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.”
Apparently D’Antuono would have us believe that this is all about the right wing’s “crucifying” of Obama. If that is true though, why the smile, near smirk, on rendition of Obama? There is definitely a “Messiah complex” with Obama for sure.
For instance, if this were you and in in the highest office of the land, would we not distance ourselves from such blasphemy? Would we not point out that we were only human and not God, not His Son?
Obama has not done such. In fact, he has catered to these things, not distancing himself one bit.
In an interesting twist on art, Glenn Beck submerged a bobble head Obama figure in a jar of beer, which was to be reminiscent of urine, like that contained in the “art work” of “Piss Christ.” I think this is a highly clever way to demonstrate the hypocrisy of the left (See, I told you sometimes I agree with Beck. I’m not a Beck hater.)Beck then put the “art work” on Ebay. At last tally, the jar of beer with the Obama figure, which Beck called in it “Obama in Pee Pee,” was up to $11,300. But Ebay, obviously not having the best interest of anyone in mind canned the auction, which Beck was to contribute the proceeds to Mercury One charity. Beck received an email from Ebay stating:
We removed it because including this information in the description is a violation of our policy:

We do not allow this type of listing and we ask that you do not relist this in any way. All fees for this listing have been credited to your account.
Listings of humans, human bodies, or human body parts aren’t allowed on eBay. In addition, sales of Native American skulls, bones, and other Native American grave-related items are prohibited under the Native American Graves Protection and Repatriation Act and aren’t allowed on eBay.
I guess the egg is on Ebay’s face now! They obviously can’t distinguish between urine and beer. Furthermore there is nothing, that I know of in which alcohol cannot be sold on Ebay. In fact, a quick check yielded several wines that were available at the online auction site, though I did not find any beer that was available to bid on or purchase.
I assume D’Antuono’s piece would be accepted for auction on Ebay while “Beer Obama” obviously is not.
