‘The First Temptation of Christ’ which was released on Netflix on 3 December sees Jesus and a ‘friend’ named Orlando arriving at Mary and Joseph’s house for a birthday party.

BREAKING:@netflix released a show depicting Jesus as GAY?!
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!!!

I doubt Jesus Christ is concerned on how they portray him. We are talking about the King of kings.
A lot of opinions from mere earthlings will not bother you when you’re the Lord of lords.
Jesus does not need me to fight his fight either.

Netflix releasing a Movie that portrayed Jesus as gay is far too reaching and disrespectful, it’s cool to be whatever you want, but don’t try and rub it on people’s faces, respect other people’s beliefs too.
Jesus was never gay, stop forcing it!!!

So @netflix wakes up to paint Jesus Christ as “drunk” and as “gay” in a new movie. This is NOT “woke”, this is insanity.
The disgusting thing about these insane liberals is their complete inability to know when to draw the line.
I hope they never make a movie with Allah as gay.
