An image of U.S. President Barack Obama depicted as a saint is seen on a ten inch tall votive candle displayed in the window of 'Just For Fun' March 2, 2009 in San Francisco, California. Votive candles with a saintly image of Barack Obama that were created by Johnny Oliver have angered members of the St. Philip the Apostle Church who see the candle as mocking Jesus. The store 'Just For Fun' has sold over 1,000 of the 10 inch votives which sell for $12.95 each but have yet to sell one of the two foot tall candles which go for $395.
