movie theater seatsA ministry is voicing concerns over an upcoming film that critics say mocks Jesus Christ.

The indie film Habit has been stirring up controversy amid the Christian community, and One Million Moms director Monica Cole says the depiction of Paris Jackson as female Jesus is only the beginning.

"The entire movie is going to be blasphemous," Cole asserts. "With Bella Thorne, she's disguised as a nun [with] a Jesus fetish, and she's trying to avoid a violent drug deal. They would never have produced a film with Muhammad in this nature," the ministry director continues. "So we're going to take a stand, and our petition is urging Elevated Films to cancel the release of this film."

The One Millions Moms petition has received more than 56,000 signatures, but the organization hopes to obtain at least 19,000 more in order to block the release of the film before it hits theaters.

Cole's organization aims to speak out so that Christians are aware of the film "that ridicules people of faith" and to put a stop to it.
