Netflix has recently made a film that portrays Jesus Christ as a closet gay man, which has drawn a lot of ire from some not so happy Christians and even a few Muslims as well. After researching this film a bit, it seems the movie is basically a satire that makes fun of most Christian beliefs.
With one quote from the naysayers to the protests against this film claiming, "There’s a lot that people could find disrespectful and blasphemous about the movie. But they only see a gay Jesus.”
And while that might be true, I honestly don't know since I have yet to see the movie. However, I want to know your thoughts on this. Is it right for this filmmaker to portray Jesus Christ as a gay man? Or do you find it in bad tastes? Or do you simply not care? Please discuss.

The possibility of Jesus being gay was slim to none. But, I don't have any problem with people thinking whatever they want. Or making whatever movies they want.
Funny my last christain girlfriend told me her ideal man is a Christains. If Jesus is gay, she wants a gay man or a man that has no clear ID. There is far too many contradictions,, confusion and conflicting stories in the Bible and from Christains to make any heads or tails out of it. They are welcome to their delusional beliefs, as I am with my delusions with the Arts. All I have to say is stop harming gays all together worldwide.
Honestly, I think Christianity has bigger problems than a movie like this. Its fairly obvious to me that this is one of those shock comedies, where the name of the game is to offend a lot of people in order to get free press. Nothing wrong with shock comedy. Although my thoughts are instead of organizing protests against the movie itself, why not simply not watch it? Or just boycott it completely? Seriously it amazes me how people will organize petitions against movies like this, or whine about it, when the most effective thing to do is to ignore it, and not spend money on it, as that's the most direct way to speak to filmmakers.
I have no interest in seeing such a film (if I want religious satire I'll stick with "Monty Python's Life of Brian"), but anything that gets the Jesus freaks' undies in a bunch is okay by me, because it results in lots of unintentionally hilarious social media outrage.
The Reddit page r/insanepeoplefacebook already has found some posts on FB and Twitter from people who are somehow blaming former President Obama for this movie, since they apparently think he "owns" Netflix.
I love Life of Brian. lol Although I prefer both "Holy Grail" and "Meaning of Life" more, but I thought "Life of Brian" was funny as hell.
Honestly, I may try to check out this movie out of morbid curiosity but then again im not sure if I want to subscribe to Netflix just for that, but it might be interesting to review on here just for giggles.
I await Netflix to do something of an equally satirical nature with Mohammed being gay, while not caring how Muslims may feel!
Seems Christianity is an easy target for satire by the usual suspects

WHO IS JESUS CHRIST TO YOU? Striking question indeed. Who is Jesus Christ to you? A Lord, Master, Teacher or Prophet? Whatever! As you share your views...Why Did He Ever Come To This World?

According to Collider Movie News, it was revealed that the comic book writers plan to make her bisexual, as their logic is that since she grew up in a world inhabited by nothing but women, then statistically Wonder Woman would either grow up being either full on gay, or bi. No word yet on...

Can a gay man be attracted to a specific girl, but not women in general, and still be gay, not bi?As a writer, i'm wondering if it's possible for a gay or straight character to be attracted to a person of the gender that opposes their typical sexuality? Like, a gay person to be in love with a...

I have enjoyed many "debates" with folks here on the Hub, but in the long run, its seems those that believe still believe and those that don't still don't. Why is this?Could it be, Christians, that we allow the nay-sayers to have their say while we are trying to not be...
