Mark Burnett

The Real Devil

Is Messing with 'The Bible'

There's a swirl that the devil character in "The Bible" TV show is a thinly veiled President Obama ... and Mark Burnett tells TMZ, it's all the devil's doing ...THE REAL DEVIL.

Burnett -- a deeply religious man -- tells TMZ ... he believes there is a devil on earth.  Burnett says the devil has stirred the pot and created a false likeness between Obama and the TV devil.

Why, you ask, would the real devil care about a TV show?  Fact is ... the show is HUGELY popular and is having a big impact on viewers.  Burnett notes the show last night featured a face-to-face meeting between Jesus and the devil ... BUT it's not the first time the TV devil has appeared on the show.  The TV devil appeared in the Garden of Eden scene awhile back and no one said anything.

Burnett believes the real devil is scared that Jesus has now entered the picture and is trying to distract from Jesus' message by creating a false story.

Burnett says, "What could be more annoying to Satan than talking about Jesus?" 

Burnett is confident the real devil's plan of distraction will not work, saying, "We believe in the light."

It seems strange that they would choose a black man to play "the devil." Is Mark Burnett trying to play on the fears of these people? I don't support Obama but it's because he is deceitful and wants the right to murder US citizens secretly, legally. Stop worrying about a television show and google NDAA.

Obama is such a self centered a__h__e and SOOOO in love with himself, it would not suprise me if he asked to play that role on the bible. God knows he does everything possible to get out of work cuz he has no clue what he is doing. Michelle Obama could easily be medusa, her hair always looks totally retarded!

"We believe in the light." -- Mark Burnett. This must be a sly admission that this religious opportunist is a Satan worshiper, as "Lucifer" means morning star or giver of light.

So Burnett is insane then because all of his quotes sound like the ramblings of a mad man.

It's a great series, well scripted and acted. Really brings the Bible to life. So, c'mon who would YOU have as Satan? It's a good match!

I knew that Burnett was religious but I didn't realize he was an arch conservative with an agenda to diminish the Democrats. How creepy. Demand a boyott!

Good casting, though it would have been better had they cast someone who resembles Satan's ACTUAL son --Jay Z.
