Brazilian Group's Christmas Special Aired On Netflix Features Gay Jesus, Pot-Smoking Mary

Apparently not satisfied with traditional holiday movies like “Frosty the Snowman” or “It’s a Wonderful Life,” Netflix is catching loads of flak – including widespread calls to boycott the streaming service – for airing a Christmas special depicting a gay Jesus and a pot-smoking Virgin Mary.

The 46-minute show, called “The First Temptation of Christ” and produced by a Brazilian comedy troupe called “Porta dos Fundos,” features Jesus returning from his 40-day desert trip as a homosexual who’s now in a gay relationship with Satan. Other storylines include God seducing Mary behind Joseph’s back and Mary smoking marijuana.

A host of conservative Brazilian groups, including Cristo Rei League and the National Council of Bishops of Brazil, are now up in arms over the debauched display, vowing to boycott Netflix if the short film isn't removed. Critics have launched a petition on change.org with a goal of 3 million signatures demanding Netflix take the show off their site.

In response, Porta dos Fundos issued a statement declaring, “Porta dos Fundos values 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.”

As CinemaBlend notes, this isn’t the first time Porta dos Fundos has made waves for their sacrilegious depiction of Christianity. The group won an International Emmy Award for their production “The Last Hangover,” featuring Jesus and his 12 disciples getting wasted at the Last Supper.
