Over 1 million people are currently calling for a Brazilian Netflix film, "The First Temptation of Christ" which advocates about a gay jesus to be pulled down.

The 46 minute comedy film which got released on 3th December portrays jesus as a closeted homosexual. The film shows jesus and Orlando a friend of his arriving at Joseph And Mary's house for a birthday party.

Jesus tries to downplay their relationship, while Orlando hints that they're more than friends.


The Netflix description about the film read:


 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.


Eduardo Bolsonaro, son of homophobic Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, blasted the film on social media.

He wrote:

We support freedom of expression, but is it worth attacking the belief of 86 percent of the population?

And Bishop Henrique Soares da Costa wrote that he had cancelled his Netflix account in protest at the "blasphemous, vulgar and disrespectful" skit.


A petition for it to be taken down has already attracted 1.4million signatures.

Porta dos Fundos said in a statement: 

We value artistic freedom and humor through satire on the most diverse cultural themes of our society and believes that freedom of expression is an essential construction for a democratic country.
