Earlier this week comedian and actor Jamie Foxx called President Obama the "Lord and Savior." Now, a Boston community college art gallery is displaying a painting of Obama being crucified like Jesus on a cross.

Fox News' Todd Starnes has more:

It was originally supposed to debut nearly four years ago at New York City's Union Square. But that event was cancelled due to public outrage.

"I always regretted cancelling my exhibit in New York because I feel my First Amendment rights should override someone's hurt feelings," [artist Michael] D'Antuono told Fox News. "We should celebrate the fact that we live in a country where we are given the freedom to express ourselves."

The artist has claimed he has "no intention" of comparing Obama to Jesus.
