'The Truth': D'Antuono Cancels Unveiling of Obama Painting Due to Public Outrage

NEW YORK, April 27 /
PRNewswire/ -- Painter Michael D'Antuono has cancelled the planned public unveiling of his latest work "The Truth" at NYC's Union Square Park on President Obama's 100th day in office due to overwhelming public outrage. The artist's decision was based in part on thousands of emails and phone calls; online blogs and other public commentary received in the first 48 hours following its release.

The painting which was first made public on Friday depicts President Obama appearing much like Jesus Christ on the Cross; atop his head, a crown of thorns. Behind him, the dark veil being lifted (or lowered) on the Presidential Seal. The photo was the most emailed picture on the web.

Understand the first 20 prints of this have been purchased by the White House for Christmas Cards. just kidding a little.

NYC is slowly slipping back into the hell hole it was before Rudy cleaned it up.

Can you say Antichrist?

I thought so!

I cannot see that the artist didn't mean to offend. Any artist worth the name should be familiar with sacred art, and know the significance of the symbolism of the oustretched arms, and especially the crown of thorns! His "apology" rings very hollow to me.

Serrano's "Piss Christ" was much more insulting and blasphemous (if blasphemy has various grades) yet it was displayed and not too far in the past either.

This POS doesn't even get aired before the painter yanks it with a "mea culpa".

So I wonder, was the outrage over this much greater than similar incidents in the past? If so would this indicate a fair number of religious believers are (finally) finding their voices?

Maybe theres cause for "hope and change" of a different sort than we've been told of lately.

In light of John 14:6, the title of this "art" is pure blasphemy. The lack of outrage from Obama, who says he is a Christian, is not unexpected.

Obama isn't a Christian, of course he has no outrage...

Though I must say if they were going to paint this, he forgot the teleprompter since Obama can't speak without it anyway

I am familiar with that area of NYC, it's around NYU which "thrives" on "outrage". This appears to be comic book "Art" and it's obvious this "artist" while not a Michelangelo is capable of attracting attention which is what this "cult of celebrity" (gee, that Obama's so cool) is all about
