The so-called progressives, who oppose protest of Hindus in the name of freedom of expression when Hindu Deities are defamed, will not oppose the protest of Christians for the same reason because the policies of progressives change according to the religion.
New Delhi – A new Netflix Christmas Special titled ‘The First Temptation Of Christ’, which shows Jesus 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 an unconditional apology.
“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.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”, said Abraham Mathai, President of Indian Christian Voice.
“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 obscene songs for Jesus.
