Netflix is catching major heat after the streaming service added a Christmas-themed “dark comedy” made by a Brazilian comedy group about “gay Jesus.”

Over 1.2 million Christians have signed a Change.org petition asking Netflix to remove “A Primeira Tentação de Cristo,” or, “The First Temptation of Christ.”

According to LGBT website Pink News, the Brazilian comedy group Porta dos Fundos, “which literally means ‘back door,’” is comprised of “five people from Rio de Janeiro who started making sketches and parodies on their YouTube channel.”

“Jesus is turning 30 and brings a surprise guest to meet the family. A Christmas special so wrong that it must be from comedians Porta dos Fundos,” the film is described on Netflix.

“The First Temptation of Christ” has been slammed as blasphemous and disrespectful by Brazilian Christians, many identifying as Catholics.

Catholic website Crux reported in April that Brazil has “the biggest Catholic population in the world with 123 million adherents,” though the nation has seen a dip in Catholic identity the past two years and an “accelerated growth of Evangelical denominations.”

“It is a serious offence against Jesus Christ and the Christians! It has no historical evidence to support the insinuations presented,” one petition signer wrote, Pink News noted.

Another said the movie “came to destroy the image of Christ who gave His life to save us. Netflix has featured series that the family can’t join to watch. God created man and woman and no one can change that.”

Here are some of the other reactions from angered Christians:

[Porta dos Fundos] has no originality to make comedy and what does? Religious Prejudice!

For the end of derision and disrespect for the faith of the Catholic Church and especially for GOD.

Amazing! Disrespect for the faith of others. No one is obliged to believe in Jesus Christ, but we demand respect for our belief. I totally repudiated it and we already canceled our Netflix. Whoever disrespects my God does not deserve my money.

Create laws to defend LGBTS and we are at the mercy of this lack of respect? So give respect.

A total lack of respect for our belief !!!

Total blasphemy.

Disrespect for Christians.

It’s an absurd movie of this nature. Where is the moral.

It is a shame such content to be accessed by anyone … a freak!!!

The good artist owes more reverence to God than humor to men … But this choice is for the wise both for those who watch.

It’s unlikely Netflix will remove the comedy. Though, as reported by The Daily Wire last month, the streaming service removed a segment from left-wing comedian Hasan Minhaj’s “Patriot Act” allegedly at the behest of the Saudis:

“Netflix, the world’s biggest streaming company (for now), got in trouble with one of its politically charged originals. The company’s far-left talker ‘Patriot Act’ starring Hasan Minhaj aired a segment critical of Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and his ties to the killing of journalist Jamal Khashoggi earlier this year. … The streaming giant yanked the episode in question from its Saudi feed at the country’s urging.”

One of the reasons I don't subscribe to Netflix is because they promote garbage like this and employ people like the Obama's, time can be much better spent doing something constructive and money can be put to far better uses.

Things are definitely changing over at Netflix since Barack Obama and his husband, Michael, came onboard. Petitions are pretty much useless, folks, but cancelling your subscription might get the point across!

All this noise of late, about offending people of different persuasions, yet a major corporation like Netfilx has no problem broadcasting such an offensive publication that would obviously be insulting to Christians. With the open and easy defining of hate crimes today I would be surprised if their legal department did not advise against this.

I hope they keep going. The wrath of God will be amazing! But old dvds in bulk and watch real, lighthearted, funny, entertainment. Shop now because they will outlaw old movies for being offensive. I have been stockpiling them. Thrift stores sell them for a few bucks. They are already labeling them as PC incorrect if you buy them new. Soon you will not be able to buy them at all.

Pardon me while I vomit. How does Netflix even think that this is acceptable. They have done the worst possible thing they could do to alienate their viewers. I would be surprised to see them still in business in six months. Blasphemy and insulting a religion is a sign that the management at Netflicks has lost their collective minds.

Nikki Haley Breaks with Trump: ‘We Shouldn’t Have Followed Him, and We Shouldn’t Have Listened to Him’

Published

on

Nikki Haley, former U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, believes that former President Donald Trump “let us down.”

Haley’s remarks come as the former president’s legal team prepares to present its defense of Trump during his second impeachment trial in the Senate.

In a Politico interview published Friday, Haley, former South Carolina governor, said that “we shouldn’t have followed” Trump.

“We need to acknowledge he let us down,” she said in an extensive profile. “He went down a path he shouldn’t have, and we shouldn’t have followed him, and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we can’t let that ever happen again.”

She also told the outlet that she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6 riots at the U.S. Capitol, and takes issue with his remarks condemning former Vice President Mike Pence’s refusal to reject the Electoral College vote.

“When I tell you I’m angry, it’s an understatement,” she expressed. “I am so disappointed in the fact that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence, that he would do that to him. Like, I’m disgusted by it.”

The former ambassador, who many people are speculating may run for the White House in 2024, also added that Trump will never accept the results of the 2020 presidential election.

“There’s nothing that you’re ever going to do that’s going to make him feel like he legitimately lost the election,” she explained. “He’s got a big bully pulpit. He should be responsible with it.”

Haley also warned that many people still love the former president and will not stop supporting him just because he is out of office.

“I know how much people love Donald Trump,” she admitted. “I know it. I feel it. Whether it’s an RNC room or social media or talking to donors, I can tell you that the love they have for him is still very strong. That’s not going to just fall to the wayside. Nor do I think the Republican Party is going to go back to the way it was before Donald Trump. I don’t think it should.”

Haley added that people, instead, should “take the good that he built, leave the bad that he did, and get back to a place where we can be a good, valuable, effective party.”

“[I]t’s bigger than the party,” she insisted. “I hope our country can come together and figure out how we pull this back.”

Referring to Haley’s possible 2024 ambitions, Politico’s Tim Alberta wrote, “Since last fall, I’ve spent nearly six hours talking with Haley on-the-record. I’ve also spoken with nearly 70 people who know her: friends, associates, donors, staffers, former colleagues. From those conversations, two things are clear. First, Nikki Haley is going to run for president in 2024. Second, she doesn’t know which Nikki Haley will be on the ballot.”

Haley also said that she didn’t believe Trump had a chance of winning in a 2024 election scenario.

“I don’t think he can,” she admitted. “He’s fallen so far.”

“I think his business is suffering at this point,” she added. “I think he’s lost any sort of political viability he was going to have. I think he’s lost his social media, which meant the world to him. I mean, I think he’s lost the things that really could have kept him moving.”

WATCH: Trump Attorneys Destroy House Managers on Lying to American Public and Using Manipulated Tweet as Evidence

Published

on

President Trump’s defense team took the floor of the US Senate on Friday in defense of President Trump in the Senate impeachment trial.

Trump Attorney David Schoen absolutely destroyed the House Managers when he took to the floor of the US Senate.

At one point Schoen played video of the Democrat lawmakers lying about a Trump tweet.

House Impeachment Manager Eric Swalwell gave a riveting performance on Wednesday reading off Trump’s tweets with emotional appeal.

During this theatrical performance, Swalwell read off a Trump retweet by Jennifer Lynn Lawrence.

But there was one problem with the tweet. It was photoshopped.

Jennifer Lynn Lawrence has never been verified by Twitter. Democrats faked that to make it look more important.

On Friday Trump Attorney David Schoen destroyed Democrats for lying about this to the American public.

White House Suspends Deputy Press Secretary For Allegedly Sexually Harassing, Threatening Reporter

Published

on

The White House announced on Friday that it was suspending Deputy Press Secretary TJ Ducklo after a report surfaced alleging that he sexually harassed and threatened a female reporter who was getting ready to publish a report revealing that he was dating a reporter who had previously been tasked with covering Democrat Joe Biden.

“The confrontation began on Inauguration Day, January 20, after [Politico reporter Tara] Palmeri, a coauthor of Politico’s Playbook, contacted [Axios political reporter Alexi] McCammond for comment while one of her male colleagues left a message for Ducklo,” Vanity Fair reported. “Ducklo subsequently called a Playbook editor to object to the story, but was told to call the Playbook reporters with his concerns. But instead of calling the male reporter who initially contacted him, Ducklo tried to intimidate Palmeri by phone in an effort to kill the story. ‘I will destroy you,’ Ducklo told her, according to the sources, adding that he would ruin her reputation if she published it.”

“During the off-the-record call, Ducklo made derogatory and misogynistic comments, accusing Palmeri of only reporting on his relationship—which, due to the ethics questions that factor into the relationship between a journalist and White House official, falls under the purview of her reporting beat—because she was ‘jealous’ that an unidentified man in the past had ‘wanted to f***’ McCammond ‘and not you,’” the report added. “Ducklo also accused Palmeri of being ‘jealous’ of his relationship with McCammond.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said following the report that Ducklo has been suspended for a week over the incident.

“TJ Ducklo has apologized to the reporter, with whom he had a heated conversation about his personal life,” Psaki wrote on Twitter. “He is the first to acknowledge this is not the standard of behavior set out by the President.”

“In addition to his initial apology, he has sent the reporter a personal note expressing his profound regret,” she continued. “With the approval of the White House Chief of Staff, he has been placed on a one-week suspension without pay. In addition, when he returns, he will no longer be assigned to work with any reporters at Politico.”

Reporters called out the administration over the incident, highlighting how the Trump administration did not treat reporters that way as well as issues with the timeline of events with regard to the White House taking action to address the incident.

“The Vanity Fair piece indicates that Politico editors reached to the WH after the incident first occurred and the WH acknowledged it was inappropriate,” Spectator editor Amber Athey wrote on Twitter. “But they clearly didn’t have any interest in disciplining Ducklo until his behavior was made public.”

New York Magazine reporter Olivia Nuzzi wrote on Twitter: “I covered Donald Trump for 6 years. It is saying something that this behavior — from a Biden official — shocks me.”

Grabien founder Tom Elliott highlighted the following remarks that Biden made a few weeks ago: “If you’re ever working with me and I hear you treat another colleague with disrespect, talk down to someone, I promise you I will fire you on the spot, on the spot. No if, ands, or buts. Everybody — everybody is entitled to be treated with decency & dignity.”

CNN anchor Jake Tapper responded to the quote, writing: “Standards that are not upheld are not standards. They’re lies.”
