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."

Satan trys to keep mankind blind to the truth. Often times appears as an Angel of light. But Jesus is the son of God and he and his father will not allow Satan's influence much longer!

Good for you Mark Burnett! Rather live my life like there is a God and find out there isn't, than to live like there isn't and find out when I die there is! If you Liberals and Dems don't believe fine, you don't have to call names and make fun of those that do. Or does doing that make you fell like big men and women?

DMAN said: "Mark Burnett is universally loathed by everyone in the biz. His politics are only one reason why."

__________________________________________

Well of COURSE he is. He is obviously "pure evil." Let us count the ways, shall we?


He is a MAN married to a WOMAN (Say what???!!!! No Gay partner? Well that's reason enough to hate him right there!)


He is religious, and not one of the ACCEPTABLE religions like Islam of Buddhism or one where the minister screams "God Damn America" like the good Rev. Jeremiah Wright. No, Burnett dares to be a God-fearing CHRISTIAN (Gasp), who works hard, pays his taxes, and tithes to his church. Simply SHAMEFUL!! Someone give him a dose of Sizzurp and teach him to spout a few profanities so he will be better liked.


THEN, he is a Republican!!! Apparently, he didn't get the memo that we must all worship at the alter of Obama, the least effectual president in modern history.


And finally, Burnett has an ENDLESS list of professional successes, making BILLIONS of dollars for the networks with whom he is associated. Well, we all know how much television networks HATE making money, so naturally your claim that he is roundly "loathed" makes PERFECT SENSE to anyone with a minimal IQ.

A freind of mine pointed out a GREAT point today....Satan was the most beautiful of all angels, this according to the Bible. So why make him look like that? Satan is supposed to be able to fool folks BC how could someone so evil be so beautiful..... Ya I am thinking there was an alternative behind it.

All is fair man. Bush may have been on a stake in the Game of Thrones but Obama IS the devil.

"So Mark Burnett believes that Satan is bothering his movie by making people not the actor of Satan and not the Christian message. Well Mr. Burnett when the movie showed the story of Sodom and Gommorrah you added an angel attack of the crowd so Lot can get away and the movie did not have the crowd "We want to know them." and since the crowd was male then it was a Homosexual statement which the angels would have blinded the crowd to get them off Lot and themselves without killing them. "

So Mr. Burnett in your fear of angering the Homosexuals then Satan has been given a door to come in and bother or wreck the airing of the show."
