You could call this the crass temptation of Christ.
A Brazilian comedy streaming on Netflix that depicts Jesus Christ as closeted and gay is drawing fire from “seriously offended Christians.”
The film “The First Temptation of Christ” depicts Jesus paying a visit — along with a close bud named Orlando — to parents Mary and Joseph for the savior’s 30th birthday. Nearly 1.8 million people have signed a Change.org petition demanding the removal of the video — as well as a public retraction — from the streaming service for “the crime of villainous faith.”
In the trailer for the 46-minute satire, from YouTube sketch show “Porta dos Fundos,” Jesus (Gregorio Duvivier) and Orlando (Fábio Porchat) walk in on a surprise party thrown by his parents and friends, who try to figure out who his new companion is.
