A satirical holiday special depicting Jesus as a closeted homosexual has come underfire in Brazil, with millions of people signing a petition for its removal from Netflix. Kiwi pastor Ross Smith, from the pentecostal Celebration Church in Wellington, has also criticised the film, calling it "blasphemous". He also says Christians are often unfairly victimised, because they are "soft targets".
