– 2 Million Christians speak against blasphemous Netflix Jesus comedy
Disgust and outburst is swelling over a “Christmas special” on Netflix depicting another kind of jesus – not our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ!
Netflix depicted a closeted homosexual and Christians are not having it! Bishop Joseph Strickland of Texas joined almost two million others in speaking out against it. Some, including the bishop, have gone as far as to cancel their subscriptions to the video streaming service.
Apostle Johnson Suleman of Omega Fire Ministries tweeted on Sunday that Netflix should be boycotted.
“Delete Netflix app on your system..unfollow them if you are a true Christian..The movie ‘gay jesus’ is an insult to christianity and abuse to our sensibilities..we stand to condemn it and all it stands for…Mad people…”

A Change.org petition calling on Netflix to remove the film has gathered more than 1.8 million signatures.
On Sunday, Bishop Joseph Strickland announced that he had canceled his subscription to the video streaming service over the blasphemous production. Many on social media shared that they have done the same, and condemned Netflix for airing the special.
Just cancelled Netflix….hardly have time to watch it anyway but blasphemers don’t deserve a penny of support!

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!

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. pic.twitter.com/FLwBy69Rmj

This necessary backlash over the new Netflix show Gay Jesus indicates how far the movie industry has tested the patience of Christians in the name of artistic freedom. Who even came up with this idea that portrayal of Jesus as a gay, drunk and weed-smoking person is funny?
