Netflix Cartoon Depicts Jesus Coming Off the Cross With Machine Guns
By Movieguide® Staff
Sometimes you don’t have the words to describe how truly offensive and atrocious some media can be.
Such is the case for a Netflix cartoon called PARADISE PD. In an episode called “Trigger Warning” that dropped March 12, Jesus comes off the cross with machine guns, murdering his persecutors before having sex with two women.
Mayor Karen Crawford (voice of Grey Griffin), the wife of Randall and mother of Kevin, thinks the town has a gun problem, exemplified by children shooting at a pinata to bust it open at a birthday party. She frets that gun incidents keep happening yet no one does anything. At that point, the chief says he tweets “thoughts and prayers”, a common complaint by real-life gun-grabbing liberals who ridicule Second Amendment supporters during times of tragedy. Gina says, “Thoughts and prayers? What more could a grieving family want?”
Kevin tells his mother that she should do something. The chief says before she turns Paradise into “Communist Canada”, he’ll take them on a tour of the NRA. Kevin agrees to go in exchange for his father watching the Moore video.
The tour includes a gun pit with a dead kid buried in it and the corpse of Charlton Heston used as a statue, complete with a quote – “Pry this gun from my cold, dead hands and win a Republican Senate seat.” The head of the NRA, Mr. Chip [Expletive]-Yeah, shows them a video using Jesus as a prop to show how “guns make a better world.” The video is horrifically offensive, with Jesus coming down from the Cross to kill his persecutors with machine guns then have sex with two women.
It appears as though Netflix is both mocking Christians and politicizing the crucifixion of our Lord and Savior to fit a liberal agenda.
This is far from the first time that Netflix has shared offensive content about Christ.
Christians previously called for the streaming giant to remove a show called THE FIRST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST, created by Brazilian comedy group Portos dos Fundos.
THE FIRST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST is about Jesus celebrating his 30th birthday and bringing his boyfriend home to meet his family.
Brazil banned THE FIRST TEMPTATION OF CHRIST before the country’s supreme court overruled the decision.
Later, Netflix started streaming CUTIES, “a repulsive, tasteless, mediocre movie that turns underage girls into sex objects. It has a strong, very immoral pagan worldview where tween girls do whatever pleases them, including sneaking into places, not telling their parents where they are or what they’re doing, and similar acts of rebellion.”
Now, “Trigger Warning” further proves that Netflix cares more about the shock value than financial profitability.
The streaming giant says it wants to expand its family and children content. After all, movies with more family and faith elements make more money than movies with gratuitous elements.
However, if Netflix actually cared about families, they would not allow such filth on their platform.
