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."

omg liberals are kind of funny, if they scr** people up it is funny, ok, and amazing, but when you say or do something they do not like they call you racist... the race card as well as the liberal media (and its followers) are like toilette paper, full of cr**p.

I think Burnett wanted the controversy because he could have just as easily cast another actor who didn't look anything like Obama ,but it helps give the series publicity!..oldest trick in the Hollywood book!..

I think Mark may have miss spoke saying there is a real devil on earth the devil is refered to as evil and that is here. Can you imagen the up roar about this person being related back to the president. When i heard the topic i thought people are trying to take people away from the reason of this series and that is to tell the story of the bible. On the other hand harvey Mark maybe creating this up roar for ratings, think about. Those people who haven't saw this series who will watch it now? Watch the ratings I could be wrong but it's a thought. On a christians pov it would be good if he could get more people to watch and actually take something from it.
