Christians Are in an Uproar Over Brazilian Comedy Group's Gay Depiction of Jesus

By

Over 1.4 million people have signed a petition asking for Netflix to remove a Christmas-themed comedy special that portrays Jesus as gay

The 46-minute film, which stars members of the popular Brazilian YouTube channel Porta dos Fundos, first caused an uproar with South American audiences when it was released on Netflix Brazil earlier this month. It is currently available to stream in the U.S.

The First Temptation of Christ on Netflix imagines Jesus as a closeted gay man.

A description of the comedy reads: "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."
