Michael D’Antuono’s “The Truth”

Michael D'Antuono

A New York artist has canceled the public showing of his portrait of President Obama after receiving a barrage of angry e-mails condemning the religious nature of the work.

“The Truth,” a painting by Michael D’Antuono, was scheduled to go on view in Union Square in Manhattan to mark the president’s first 100 days in office.

WorldNut Daily has the funniest take on the controversy:

Like others in the news who have depicted Obama in Christ-like imagery, D’Antuono insists he isn’t claiming the man is Messiah, but only inviting “individual interpretations.”
