Brazilian Judge Blocks Netflix Comedy Special ‘The First Temptation of Christ’ That Depicts Gay Jesus


A Brazilian judge has ordered Netflix to stop showing a comedy special called “The First Temptation of Christ” that insinuates that Jesus Christ was gay.
    According to the Associated Press. a Rio de Janiero judge Benedicto Abicair responded to a petition by a Brazilian Catholic organization that demanded Netflix to remove the film, saying it hurt the “honor of millions of Catholics” in the country. A petition started on Change.org last month has received over two million signatures demanding public retraction of the film.
“The First Temptation of Christ” comes from a Brazilian comedy group called Porta dos Fundos, and the special imagines Jesus returning home on his 30th birthday with a gay friend.
