    Glenn Beck Clashes With Creator of Crucified Obama Painting Over First Amendment Hypocrisy: ‘This Is So Dishonest’

    During his show on TheBlazeTV Wednesday, Glenn Beck resumed his discussion on the First Amendment, particularly how it relates to artistic expression. After much controversy surrounding Beck’s creation of an Obama bobble head doll submerged in a mason jar of yellow liquid (which was actually water with food coloring), he sat down with the artist, Michael D’Antuono, who inspired it all with his controversial painting titled “Truth.”

    The painting, which features a crucified President Barack Obama wearing a crown of thorns, led Beck to test the limits of freedom of speech.

    D’Antuono argued that he did not intend to portray Obama as Christ despite the veil/curtains, crown of thorns and the implied crucifixion. Beck accused him of not being totally honest about his intentions.

    “I do not think he is Christ. I was not trying to convey that,” D’Antuono told Beck, explaining the inspiration behind his painting. “Actually, this painting does not convey my own personal opinions. It is more a mirror reflecting the personal opinions and prejudices, preconceived ideas of the viewer. It’s kind of a sociological experiment.”

    Beck: Media Missed The Point of ‘Obama in Pee Pee’

    Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

    For the past three days, Glenn has been trying to make a point about the Constitution, but the media seems to be missing it. Not surprisingly, the media and the left flew into outrage mode over Glenn’s placing of a fake Obama into a fake jar of urine. They have said that he’s trying to make money and get his name in the paper again. That he’s trying to rile up the left by taking the President and desecrating his image. But the truth is, Glenn has always been about trying to educate through entertainment, but the media once again wants to focus on the presentation and not on the message.

    That painting is over 2 years old, and the artist has repeatedly stated he painted it because of republicans who were suggesting democrats worshipped Obama, not because he thinks Obama is Christ like.

    Does Glenn accept pornography as an expression of free speech? Do you? How about child pornography?

    Yeah cant imagine why the comments the left made about Obama being god, or obama's comments on lowering the sea levels, or him being their Lord and Savior, have absolutely nothing to do with it.
