Brazil's Supreme Court decided Thursday that Netflix can continue streaming a controversial Brazilian comedy special that depicts Jesus Christ as a homosexual.

The Supreme Court overturned a lower court judge's ruling from Tuesday that ordered Netflix to remove a controversial Brazilian comedy special despite international outcry and a petition signed by over 2 million people demanding its removal.

Titled “The First Temptation of Christ” (most likely a play on words reminiscent of the controversial 1988 film “The Last Temptation of Christ”), the satirical “special” that first aired Dec. 3 ahead of Christmas was created by a Brazilian comedy group known as Porta Does Fundos.
