NetflixAmerican Family Association continues to speak out against an alleged "comedy" streaming on Netflix that portrays Jesus as homosexual.

"We're asking our supporters to sign a petition to Netflix CEO Reed Hastings asking them to pull this very heretical movie," says Walker Wildmon, vice president of operations at American Family Association. "We're also asking for folks to cancel their Netflix subscriptions."

This is not the first time AFA has expressed concerns about Netflix programs: The ministry called out Netflix in 2018 over teen drama “13 Reasons Why” after a family said their daughter committed suicide in the same manner as the film’s main character.

Not long after teen story went public, the  streaming giant slapped a warning on the teen program and eventually cut the pivotal first-season suicide scene from the show, but AFA never heard from Netflix or Hastings over its concerns.

Netflix, Wildmon says, has become a “bad actor” and keeps coming to the attention of AFA, first for its teen show linked to several suicides and now for teaming with a comedy show that mocks Jesus.  

“Netflix is definitely not a one-time offender,” he says.
