Imagine if Netflix produced a comedy about the prophet Mohammed raping little girls. It is impossible because this would never be allowed, mostly because it would set off violent Islamic attacks across the world and the producers would probably have their offices fire-bombed (remember Je suis Charlie?).
But Netflix has no problem blaspheming Jesus Christ and has released a new “comedy,” where Jesus brings his boyfriend home to meet the parents, called The First Temptation of Christ.
John Nolte at Breitbart thinks like I do and has said it better than I could,
The real story here is how Christians are reacting… Some are signing petitions, others are praying for the souls of all involved, most of us are rolling our eyes and moving on with our lives — because that’s what Christians do. We don’t lop off people’s heads, which is why it is always open season on us, which is to our credit.
Personally, I wouldn’t sign a petition or call for a ban on this — or anything. If you want to live in a free society and country, you have to grow a thick enough skin not to care about this stuff. But that doesn’t mean I’m not taking notes…
If you’re a satirist, you satirize everyone equally.
If you’re a bigot, you single certain groups out for mockery and place others off limits.
In this way, lazy, cowardly garbage like The First Temptation of Christ is useful — it exposes who the bigots are, and if this so-called comedy troupe wants to produce a “Gay Mohammed” special for Ramadan and Netflix wants to stream it, I will take it all back.
Netflix has not added a trailer for this idiocy on their YouTube page, probably because they were hoping to keep us in the dark. Hard pass for me on this one.
