Netflix Facing Backlash Over Comedy Special With Gay Jesus



A Netflix Christmas comedy special which implies Jesus was gay and Mary liked to smoke weed — has outraged viewers; a petition has circulated demanding the special to be pulled on the grounds that it is offensive to Christians.

“No one is obliged to believe in Jesus Christ, but we demand respect for our beliefs. Whoever disrespects my God does not deserve my money.”

“The First Temptation of Christ” comes from Brazilian YouTube comedy group Porta dos Fundos. 
The 46-minute special tracks Jesus coming home to his surprise birthday party with Orlando, his openly flamboyant friend. Despite Jesus’ attempts to conceal his friend, Orlando joins the party later and sings a quirky holiday bop that includes the lyrics: “In the heat of the desert I saw the size of his huge power.”
