Brazil's Supreme Court rules in favour of the controversial Neflix film portraying as a Jesus.

Just days after a Rio de Janeiro judge Benedicto Abicair ordered Netflix to remove the movie from its platform, Brazil’s Supreme Court has overturned the order by a judge asking Netflix to remove the controversial movie which portrayed Jesus as a gay.
The Supreme Federal Court Judge Antonio Diaz Toffoli on Thursday, January 9, rejected a decision to stop Netflix from showing the controversial movie, "The First Temptation of Christ", depicting Jesus Christ in a gay relationship. 

This follows an appeal launched by Netflix against the first judgment, in which the supreme court Judge refused to buy into the believe that the movie was insulting to Christians: "One cannot suppose that a humorous satire has the ability to weaken the values of the Christian faith, whose existence is traced back more than two thousand years, and which is the belief of the majority of Brazilian citizens."
 In the words of Netflix: "We strongly support artistic expression and we will fight to defend this important principle, which is the heart of great stories."
