“Porchat, a co-founder of Porta Dos Fundos, has refused to apologize, however. He pushed back in an interview with Variety, in which he called the outrage “homophobic” and explained that the comedy does not explicitly state that Jesus is in a relationship with Orlando — who is actually Satan.”
(Heather Clark – Christian News) More than two million people worldwide have signed petitions asking the entertainment provider Netflix to pull a blasphemous film called “The First Temptation of Christ,” which depicts Jesus as a homosexual, his disciples as drunks and his mother as having sexual relations with God, the Father.
The Portugese production is directed by Rodrigo Van Der Put, who similarly released “The Last Hangover” last year, which is a mockery of the Last Supper. “The First Temptation of Christ” is listed on Netflix as a “dark comedy,” and is meant to be a “Christmas special.”
“Jesus, who’s hitting the big 3-0, brings a surprise guest to meet the family,” the description of the movie reads. That “guest” turns out to be Jesus’ “friend,” Orlando, played by Fábio Porchat of the Brazilian comedy group Porta Dos Fundos.
