Netflix’s ‘gay Jesus’ comedy special shows the clear double standard artists have for Christians

Two million people have called for the removal of Netflix’s ‘The First Temptation of Christ’, a 46-minute special from the YouTube comedy group Porta Dos Fundos.

The special depicts a presumably gay Jesus Christ bringing what appears to be his boyfriend, Orando, home to meet his family.

Eduardo Bolsonaro, son of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, has been one of the most vocal critics of the special. He took to Twitter on Saturday to call it 'garbage' and to insist the group behind it does 'not represent Brazilian society.'

Brazil has more Catholics than any other country.

Netflix has earned similar criticism for ‘The Last Hangover’, another special from Porta Dos Fundos. That special is a play on the popular film ‘The Hangover’ as the apostles have to piece together a night of drinking in order to locate Jesus Christ.

'Dear @netflix You have a right to your beliefs, but so do I. I also have the right to no longer fund you making fun of my beliefs. Jesus was not gay or a drunk. This is disrespectful. I pray you never do the same to other religions. But Jesus forgives you & He still loves you,' wrote one Twitter user in protest of the specials.

'Let’s make this CLEAR! Jesus isn’t some ‘woke’ culture experiment for you to convince young people that biblical teachings are ‘debatable’?! Jesus is the SON OF GOD and died for our sins! Show some RESPECT!' wrote another user........
