(Worthy News) - More than 1.5 million people have signed a petition demanding Netflix to remove a film that depicts Jesus Christ as gay.
The First Temptation of Christ is the second satirical film about Jesus from the International Emmy-winning comedy group Porta dos Fundos, which translates to "back door." Their new movie, which is 46 minutes long, is about Jesus returning to his parents' home for his birthday with his new friend, Orlando. There are hints that Jesus and Orlando are romantically involved.
The film has received immense criticism in Brazil. One Brazilian congressman, Marco Feliciano, who has a history of anti-gay and lesbian comments, expressed his outrage on social media, noting that "Christians and non-Christians have asked me to take action against the irresponsible members of Porta do Fundo."
