History Channel's "The Bible" miniseries uses Obama lookalike to play the role of Satan.

"Better to reign in America than to serve in Heaven!" - Barack Obama, Second Inaugural.

The History Channel's "The Bible" seemed poised to be a classic Christian-media success story: little coverage, small budget, massive audience (13.1 million this weekend). That is, until this guy walked on screen. Pretty quickly, a few perceptive Christians saw their own personal boogeyman, Obama, under Satan's hood. Glenn Beck is one the first to spot the resemblance between this guy and That Guy, as he calls Obama (below). Twitter then exploded, obviously, with a few angry objections and a fair amount of gloating and/or actual credulence. The filmmakers will probably be called upon to apologize, as Game of Thrones had to when they used a George W. Bush mask as a severed head, but it will be hard to believe they think it's an accident since they've stated they think the entire project was guided by the hand of God. If they're looking for more evidence God thinks O is Satan, look at the Metacritic score for "The Bible": 44.
