As a Liberal Christian, with Buddhist/spiritual persuasions, I am very disappointed that the filmmakers and presenters of the TV movie series, 'The Bible', would allow the Devil's character, to bear such a strong resemblance to President Obama. Christian or non-Christian, I can't help but believe, the choice of this cast member was politically motivated.
I'm grateful for groups like, Facebook's The Christian Left who prove all Christians are not like the hate-bearing extremists we often see and hear about in the news these days. Many Liberal/Democrat/LeftWing Christians are fed up.
Of course, we have Right Wing talking heads like Glenn Beck, who are jumping on the actor's resemblance, to perpetuate their agenda that Obama is an evil, non-Christian, destroyer of the country. Over the years, some Right Wing/"Christian" extremists have gone so far as to call Obama, The Anti-Christ. A barrage of facebook discussions and tweets, including, Obama supporters, Left/Liberal Christians, and Christians who are sick of being misrepresented, have been infiltrating the internet.
