The First Temptation of Christ which was made by a YouTube comedy group was released by Netflix in Brazil on December 3rd, and has raised dust as many people around the globe have frowned at the content and disregard of religious beliefs.
Reno Omokri who is an Author and Lawyer, has called for a boycott of on-demand movie platform, Netflix, if it goes ahead to show a movie that portrays Jesus as gay.
Taking to Instagram to share his view, Omokri, a former aide to former President Goodluck Jonathan, urged Netflix not to take advantage of Christians’ tolerance.
The movie portrays Jesus as being in a sexual relationship with his male friend Orlando.
Omokri said, ‘Now, Netflix announces a film about a gay Jesus. Would they do that to the Quran?’
“Netflix and other liberal media must NOT take advantage of Christian’s tolerance.
Christians choose non-violence on purpose.
It is not that we cannot be violent! Rather, it is that we choose not to be violent.
“If Netflix goes ahead to release their comedy on the gay Jesus, I urge all Christians around the world to delete their Netflix app and cancel their Netflix subscription.
If you fail to do this, you cannot claim to love Christ, His Father, or me, Theirservant. “I remind all Christians of the injunction Christ gave us in Matthew 10:33: “Whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.”-Matthew 10:33 “Stand up for your faith or watch it forever ridiculed.”
