A Brazilian judge ordered Netflix to stop showing a Christmas special that some called
blasphemous for depicting Jesus as a gay man and which prompted a gasoline bomb attack on the satirists behind the program. The ruling by Rio de Janeiro judge Benedicto Abicair responded to a petition by a Brazilian Catholic organization that argued the āhonor of millions of Catholicsā was hurt by the airing of āThe First Temptation of Christ.ā The special was produced by the Rio-based film company Porta dos Fundos, whose headquarters was targeted in the Christmas Eve attack. Netflix told The Associated Press it would not comment on the ruling.
