If you’re a satirist, you satirize everyone equally. If you’re a bigot like Netflix, you single certain groups out for mockery and place others off limits.
One cannot help but wonder if the rise of anti-Christian and pro-abortion movies on Netflix happening at the same time Netflix signed Barack Obama to a huge $50 million dollar production contract is coincidence or an orchestrated effort. Someone should do a timeline of programming before and after the Obamas were brought on. If you find one please post it in the comments below, I would like to see it.
“And Jesus said, I am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. And some began to spit on him, and to cover his face, and to buffet him, and to say unto him, Prophesy: and the servants did strike him with the palms of their hands.” Mark 14:62,65 (KJV)
Here are some things that you won’t see in the wake of ‘The First Temptation Of Christ’ blasphemy. You won’t see Christians strapping bombs to the chest and blowing up infidels in French cafes, there will be no Charlie Hebdo retaliatory killings because Netflix offended our Saviour. Christians don’t do that, Muslims do that. That’s why Netflix has no problem releasing movies mocking Jesus but would never, in a thousand literal years release one about a gay Muhammad or about the moon god Allah. Not only are they too cowardly to do that, it would never get approval from the Obama production company.
“And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory.” 1 Timothy 3:16 (KJV)
As for me personally, I would never mock someone’s religion or their spiritual leader, no matter how false it may be. I think movies that tell the truth about people are edifying and interesting to watch. Jesus was sinless, perfect, and God manifest in the flesh. He is the Saviour of the whole world, and perfect in all His ways. Make a movie about that. Muhammad was a pedophile who had sex with a 9-year old girl and preached slaughter to spread his religion of Islam he created around the moon god Allah. Make a movie about that, Netflix.
Netflix Releases ‘Gay Jesus’ Christmas Special
FROM BREITBART NEWS: Netflix has just released a “gay Jesus” Christmas special called The First Temptation of Christ. The Brazilian comedy group Porta dos Fundos (which literally translates to “back door”) appears to have a real hang-up about our Lord and Christianity in general. Last December the group released The Last Hangover on Netflix, a movie that blends Christ’s Last Supper with his disciples and The Hangover into a night of drunken debauchery where Jesus disappears.
This year, in this new Christmas special, Jesus turns 30 and brings his gay boyfriend home to meet Mary and Joseph. Already, 1.14 million Brazilians have signed a Change.org petition asking Netflix to remove the movie.
Here’s a reviewer’s description:
The setup is that Jesus (Gregório Duvivier) attends his 30th birthday surprise party with his boyfriend Orlando (Fábio Porchat). The party, thrown by José (Rafael Portugal) and Maria (Evelyn Castro), has a number of high-profile biblical guests, including God (Antonio Tabet), which prompts plenty of debate about parental rights and responsibilities as Christ grapples not just with his parentage but with his own spiritual journey.
The real story here is how Christians are reacting… Some are signing petitions, others are praying for the souls of all involved, most of us are rolling our eyes and moving on with our lives — because that’s what Christians do. We don’t lop off people’s heads, which is why it is always open season on us, which is to our credit.
Personally, I wouldn’t sign a petition or call for a ban on this — or anything. If you want to live in a free society and country, you have to grow a thick enough skin not to care about this stuff. But that doesn’t mean I’m not taking notes…
If you’re a satirist, you satirize everyone equally. If you’re a bigot, you single certain groups out for mockery and place others off limits.
In this way, lazy, cowardly garbage like The First Temptation of Christ is useful — it exposes who the bigots are, and if this so-called comedy troupe wants to produce a “Gay Mohammed” special for Ramadan and Netflix wants to stream it, I will take it all back. READ MORE
