Painting titled ‘Truth’ portrays Obama as Christ

A Massachusetts-based pro-family activist isn't surprised that a community college in Boston would display a blasphemous painting depicting Barack Obama as a crucified Christ.

The painting -- called "Truth" -- depicts President Obama posed as Jesus on the cross with a crown of thorns on his head. The Fox News Channel reports that the artist wanted to debut the picture nearly four years ago at New York City's Union Square, but the event was cancelled due to public outrage.

Brian Camenker, president of MassResistance, tells OneNewsNow he is not surprised that Bunker Hill Community College in Boston is now displaying the painting until December 15.

Camenker, Brian (MassResistance)"Bunker Hill Community College is one of the most left-wing colleges in a town full of left-wing colleges with all kinds of radical stuff that goes on there," he says. "So it doesn't surprise me that something like this would be there."

Camenker says the painting demonstrates the anti-Christian mindset of the left.

"If somebody were to do something that portrays Obama in a bad way, it wouldn't be allowed at all," he points out. "And there's the tip-toeing around they do against anything that might offend Muslims. But when they want to mock traditional religion, it's open season." 

And Camenker says this display also reveals the god-like reverence the left has for Obama.

"They do consider him god-like. They claim that Obama being portrayed as Jesus is 'truth,'" he tells OneNewsnow. "It's insane. But this is the way these people think and this is the way they are."

Camenker does not believe conservatives fully comprehend just how much hatred the average liberal has for traditional values and religion.

Retraction missing from apology
