Netflix has released a blasphemous ‘Gay Jesus’ ‘Christmas comedy’ special called The First Temptation of Christ:
BREITBART – The Brazilian comedy group Porta dos Fundos (which literally translates to “back door”) appears to have a real hang-up about our Lord and Christianity in general. Last December the group released The Last Hangover on Netflix, a movie that blends Christ’s Last Supper with his disciples and The Hangover into a night of drunken debauchery where Jesus disappears.
This year, in this new Christmas special, Jesus turns 30 and brings his gay boyfriend home to meet Mary and Joseph.
Already, 1.14 million Brazilians have signed a Change.org petition asking Netflix to remove the movie.
Breitbart notes that this is how Netflix is describing the blasphemous show:
The setup is that Jesus (Gregório Duvivier) attends his 30th birthday surprise party with his boyfriend Orlando (Fábio Porchat). The party, thrown by José (Rafael Portugal) and Maria (Evelyn Castro), has a number of high-profile biblical guests, including God (Antonio Tabet), which prompts plenty of debate about parental rights and responsibilities as Christ grapples not just with his parentage but with his own spiritual journey.
When I first read this it literally brought a tear to my eye at how Netflix and this Brazilian comedy team would treat the Blessed Savior, who suffered such tremendous torture and humiliation to shower His love upon us, all so we wouldn’t be lost to Him forever. That they would mock and sully Him like this with such brazen and blasphemous indifference is just beyond the pale.
Nolte at Breitbart writes:
The real story here is how Christians are reacting… Some are signing petitions, others are praying for the souls of all involved, most of us are rolling our eyes and moving on with our lives — because that’s what Christians do. We don’t lop off people’s heads, which is why it is always open season on us, which is to our credit.
Personally, I wouldn’t sign a petition or call for a ban on this — or anything. If you want to live in a free society and country, you have to grow a thick enough skin not to care about this stuff.
I just can’t agree with Nolte here. I can tolerate a great many things, but there are times when something is so beyond the pale that action is needed to remedy the situation. Earlier this year many dropped Netflix when they teamed up in a lawsuit to keep abortion legal and available in the US. I think this may also one of those ‘draw a line in the sand’ moments where people have to decide if this is something in which they can tolerate.
This saddens me too because Netflix is something that my friends and I use when we get together. Now I’m faced with the question of whether I can continue paying for a service that would blaspheme the God of all creation with such blatant disregard.
