A Christmas satire on Netflix depicting Jesus in a gay relationship has sparked a backlash in Brazil

DailyMail.Netflix Christmas special that depicts Jesus as a gay man has has offended more than one million Christians.

The 46-minute film, The First Temptation of Christ, was released by Netflix in Brazil on December 3, but no sooner had the picture started streaming, controversy had been sparked.

The flick is by a Brazil-based YouTube comedy group and shows Jesus as a closeted homosexual on Christmas.  

So far, more than 1.4 million people have signed an online petition calling on Netflix to remove the piece and take action against the producers for their ‘alleged insensitivity toward Christians.’

The film sees Jesus and a friend named Orlando arriving at Mary and Joseph’s house who are throwing a birthday party for their son.

Jesus tries to downplay his relationship with Orlando, who hints the pair are more than just friends.   

‘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.

  1. Offends me? Absolutely! Letting someone have their right to free speech is one thing but no one has given them the right to ridicule othes. Christians would all be on the chopping block if we went around making a mockery of their beliefs. I would be suffering great fear if I were one of them because I would rather keep my peace about the issue than face the wrath of a God who says vengeance is mine. And if your response is unbelief, here again, I’d rather believe and find out I was wrong than not believe and find out I was wrong. SHUT THIS EVIL DOWN.

  2. Millions of Christians have made the mistake of subscribing to Netflix. The solution is to cancel that subscription and make the purveyors of this blasphemy know it. Nothing better than to collapse the value of this outrageously overprice and overhyped stock. There are many alternatives to Netflix.
