A Brazilian Netflix film about a gay Jesus has triggered serious reactions on social media with more than one million people calling for it to be pulled.
The First Temptation of Christ – a 46-minute comedy flick which portrayed Jesus as a closeted homosexual – was released on 3 December.
It sees Jesus and a ‘friend’ named Orlando arriving at Mary and Joseph’s house for a birthday party.
Jesus tries to downplay their relationship, while Orlando hints that they’re more than friends.
The Netflix description reads: “Jesus, who’s hitting the big 3-0, brings a surprise guest to meet the family. A Christmas special so wrong, it must be from comedians Porta dos Fundos.”
Reacting to reports of the anticipated movie, Popular Nigerian Pastor, Johnson Suleman called the movie and asked his follower to boycott the app.
His tweets reads ;
“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…”
Tweeting further, he wrote, “We have 2.5billion Christians on earth,if Netflix goes ahead with this rubbish,we should boycott them.. that movie is evil,its not right and it will not stand”.
Ex-Presidential aide, Reno Omokri also supported boycott of the streaming service, his tweet reads, “If Netflix releases the the gay Jesus film, I urge all #RenosNuggeteers around the world to delete the Netflix app and cancel their subscription. If you fail to do this, you cant claim to love Christ, His Father, or me, their servant.
The other day, a misguided woman used Scripture as an ashtray. Now, @Netflix announces a film about a gay Jesus. Would they do that to the Quran? Do NOT take advantage of Christian’s tolerance. We choose non-violence. Not that we can’t be violent!”

Kobe Bryant And Wife ‘Had Deal Not To Fly In Helicopter Together’
Kobe Bryant reportedly had a deal with his wife Vanessa that they would not travel together in a helicopter, which was to get around Los Angeles.
The NBA legend was tragically killed in a helicopter crash with eight other people at the weekend, including his 13-year-old daughter Gianna.
But according to People, Vanessa would not join her husband when he used helicopters for the convenience of getting around LA.
A source said Kobe, 41, only ever used Ara Zobayan as pilot, who was killed alongside the basketball star in Sunday’s crash.
Kobe had previously spoken about his helicopter use, saying that he looked to the skies while playing for Los Angeles Lakers, to avoid the traffic of the often gridlocked city.

Many Pastors Are Not Happy In Their Marriages, Don’t Take Your Marital Problems To Them — Singer Empress Gifty
Award-winning Ghanaian gospel singer, Empress Gifty Osei has advised married women to desist from taking their marital issues to pastors for solution because most od the pastors also have problems in their marriages and are not happy.
The singer, who went through a divorce, sat for an interview with Kofi TV.
During the interview, she revealed that her divorce taught her many valuable lessons, one of which is to never take marital issues to any man of God.
She said many pastors have issues in their marriages too and this influences the advice they give when a woman comes to them with her marital issues. She added that many pastors are secretly divorced from their wives, and only put up an act for their congregation when they come to church.
She added: “I tell you, even they, their marriages are on fire, so they use your problems to console themselves. Most of them have problems, most of them have divorced their wives secretly that many people don’t know. A lot of them have problems but because of the fame they have it’s so hard for them to come public. Most of them have problems, what they put out in church with their wives are all an act, pretense, they pretend a lot.”
Advising women going through problems in their marriage, Empress Gifty said they should take time to do a bit of introspection, because this can help them identify what they themselves did to negatively affect their marriage.
She went on to ask women to talk to God and their mothers if they have marital issues, rather than go to pastors.
