A new Netflix Christmas Special titled “The First Temptation Of Christ”, which shows Jesus Christ in a gay relationship and Mary as a weed-smoker, has angered millions all over the world, who have signed a petition demanding its withdrawal.
In India, too, a section of the Christian community has said the show should be axed immediately from Netflix domains all over the globe, and demanded unconditional apology from the streaming giant.
“As a member of the Christian community and follower of Christ, I join the rest of hundreds of thousands who have registered their protests calling for the Netflix Christmas Special depicting Jesus in a gay relationship to be axed immediately. Even though freedom of expression is a fundamental and a constitutional right, using the same liberty to offend the sentiments of the members of a particular faith persuasion is highly abhorrent and totally unacceptable,” said Abraham Mathai, president, Indian Christian Voice.
“The film, besides being blasphemous, vulgar and disrespectful, should be pulled off forthwith without any further delay, as it is seriously and highly offensive to the Christian community worldwide. Netflix should follow the example set by Walmart by making a public apology to the Christian community world over by withdrawing the Christmas sweater which had an offensive message.
“Belittling and negating the deity and stature of a person who turned the world right side up with his exemplary character and impeccable integrity should not be entertained under any circumstances,” Mathai added.
“The First Temptation Of Christ” has been created by Brazil-based YouTube comedy group Porta dos Fundos (which translates to ‘Back Door’). The New York Daily News reports that the 46-minute Christmas Special depicts a weed-smoking Mary, and shows how Jesus comes home to attend his birthday party with a male friend. At the party, the friend belts out songs for Jesus that has lyrics as, “In the heat of the desert I saw the size of his huge … power”.
Over 1.1 million people have signed the petition globally so far.
Man Arrested For Killing His 5 Babies Few Months After Birth
An American man has been arrested and charged with the cold-case slayings of five babies, all his own and none of them older than 6 months.
Paul Perez, 57, is accused of killing the babies from 1992 to 2001, and he was charged with five counts of first-degree murder with special circumstances that could make him eligible for capital punishment, officials said.
He was arrested on Monday after new DNA technology helped investigators reopen a cold case from 2007, the Yolo County Sheriff’s Office said in a press release.
Thanks to new DNA technology, authorities were able to identify a deceased infant found by a fisherman in March 2007 in a sealed container weighed down with “heavy objects” as Nikko Lee Perez, authorities said.
The identification of Nikko finally came in October 2019, and led investigators to discover that Nikko had four siblings, who were all also killed when they were less than six months old, the sheriff’s office said.
The siblings, all born in California, were identified as Kato Allen Perez, born in 1992 and known to be deceased; Mika Alena Perez, born in 1995; Nikko Lee Perez, born in 1997; and Kato Krow Perez, born in 2001. The remains of the last three infants are still unknown, People reports.
Perez has been identified as the father of all five children, but it is still unclear whether they have the same mother, authorities said.
“While I am proud of the efforts of my investigators and coroner’s office, this is not a day that will bring joy to any one of us,” Sheriff Tom Lopez said in a statement.
“In my 40 years in law enforcement, I cannot think of a case more disturbing than this one,” Lopez added. “There can be no victim more vulnerable and innocent than an infant, and unfortunately this case involves five.”
“The allegations announced today are heartbreaking. There is absolutely no place in our society for horrendous crimes against children,” California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said in a statement.
“God Is Excited Anytime Man Ejaculates” — Counselor Lutterodt
Controversial Ghanaian counselor and Television personality Cyril George Carstensen Lutterodt says man’s ejaculation, is God’s joy.
Speaking with Andy Dosty on Hitz Fm’s daybreak entertainment show, he explained that man was created in God’s image but women were not. Adding that, God stated in the Holy book that man should produce and make the earth full.
He is therefore of the view that, God gets excited when man ejaculate because it’s through the ejaculation that man produces.
He further advised women to carry condoms with them whenever they move out so to avoid any unwanted pregnancies.
I Can “Raise Kobe Bryant And His Daughter From Dead” On One Condition — Nigerian Prophet
A story is going viral online about a Nigerian Prophet Nigel Gaisie, who has allegedly made some startling claims concerning the death of the basketball, player Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna Bryant.
Nigel Gaisie while preaching and prophesying to his congregations reportedly said he is capable of raising Kobe Bryant and his daughter from the dead.
However, there are some conditions to his offer. According to the self-proclaimed man of God, he can only do so if 10% of Kobe’s net worth is given to him.
According to reports, below are his words:
“The Lord just took me into the spirit world, and I have seen a great man fall.
This news will shake the entire world because of how great this man is. I see a lot of people on social media talking about the man for weeks to come and I see a lot of sad faces.”
“America will mourn this great man. The Lord then instructed me to announce to the family of this man, the American embassy in Ghana and the entire world that He the Lord has not sanctioned the death of this man.
He again said to me, ‘Nigel, tell the family of this man and tell the entire world, should they agree to pay my tithes and offerings I will use you as a vessel to bring this man and his daughter back to life.’”
Prophet Nigel asserted that without the 10% offer, there was no way he could bring the man and his daughter back to life because that was the instruction from the Almighty God Himself.
“The man is worth 500 million dollars and should the family agree to give 10% of his income to me, I will bring them back to life. Thus sayeth the Lord! Without the money, I cannot bring him and the little girl back.”
Prophet Nigel Giasie after making these declarations asked his congregation to pray in tongues and thank the Lord for wanting to use him and their church for such a great miracle.
He went on to admonish the congregation to make sure the message reaches the American consulate in Ghana, the family of the late Kobe Bryant, and also warned his congregants not to doubt the words of Almighty Jehovah or else face some serious repercussions.
