Netflix gay Jesus movie offends Christians

Netflix Inc. an American multi-billion media-services provider and production company has received a huge backlash from a section of Christian subscribers over its Christmas film released on 3rd December this year. The First Temptation of Jesus Christ, a Brazilian film on Netflix depicts Jesus Christ as a closeted homosexual. With the Christmas season nearing, filmmakers, entertainment companies and Television stations are coming up with the holiday content to entertain its audiences.

Netflix has not been left behind, booming into the Christmas season, the company is releasing a lot of streaming content on their channel to provide its subscribers with exciting holiday movies. The First Temptation of Jesus Christ has however sparked a religious outcry. Gay Jesus who’s hitting 30 brings a surprise ‘more than just a friend’ named Orlando to their home to attend a party and to meet his parents, Mary and Joseph.

‘Jesus, who’s hitting the big 3-0, brings a surprise guest to meet the family. A Christmas special so wrong, it must be from comedians Porta dos Fundos,’ reads the description on Netflix. Christians have come out so hard to criticize the production describing it as extremely offensive and an insult to the values of Christian faith. A petition was immediately started on  to call on the company to pull down the blasphemous film billed under ‘Dark Comedies’ and rated PG for under 18 on the Netflix app. About 1.4 million people have so far signed the petition. The petitioners want the production team to be charged for crimes of villainous faith.

Eduardo Bolsonaro, the eldest son of Brazil’s president and a member of Congress tweeted: “We support freedom of expression, but is it worth attacking the belief of 86 percent of the population.” Brazilian Bishops who’ve taken their anger to Facebook have reiterated on their intentions to cancel their Netflix subscription for good.
