Nigerian clergy Apostle Suleman has ordered that users of the popular movies application Netflix should delete their accounts over a comedic movie of Jesus shown on the site, The First Temptation of Christ.
The General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries International, in a tweet noted that the movie which portrays Jesus as gay and his mother Mary as a weed smoker is an insult to Christianity and an abuse to Christians’ sensibilities. Noting that there are over 2.5billion Christians worldwide, he canvassed that the movie should be boycotted.
“Delete Netflix app on your system..unfollow them if you are a true Christian..The movie ‘gay jesus’ is an insult to christianity and abuse to our sensibilities..we stand to condemn it and all it stands for…Mad people…
We have 2.5billion Christians on earth, if Netflix goes ahead with this rubbish, we should boycott them.. that movie is evil, its not right and it will not stand. The glory of present day cinema is Netflix..but since they have decided to blaspheme, its crash is inevitable..you want to do a film ‘gay jesus’?…it’s the beginning of your end..we are not cowards cause we are tolerant.” Read also: “Sex For Roles In The Movie Industry Is Very Real – Ghanaian Actress Vicky Zugah
