From World Net Daily:

On his 100th day in office, President Obama will be “crowned” in messianic imagery at New York City’s Union Square.

Artist Michael D’Antuono’s painting “The Truth” – featuring Obama with his arms outstretched and wearing a crown of thorns upon his head – will be unveiled on April 29 at the Square’s South Plaza.

According to a statement released about the portrait, “The 30″ x 54″ acrylic painting on canvas 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. But is he revealing or concealing, and is he being crucified or glorified?”

Apparently Mr. D’Antuono missed this or maybe he was deceived when Obama said:

“A light will shine down from somewhere. It will light upon you. You will experience an epiphany and you will say to yourself, ‘I have to vote for Barack’.”

Either way, this imagery frightening and sacrilegious to the highest degree. If Obama were a true believer, don’t you think he would ask for this painting not to be displayed?

Update: Per WND, Michael D’Antuono has canceled the display of this painting due to “overwhelming public outrage.”
