An animated series on Netflix, “Paradise P.D.,” has come under harsh criticism for an outrageous episode in its fourth season showing a cartoon Jesus yanking himself off the cross after replacing the nails driven into his wrist by two loaded guns.
Newsbusters first called attention to the terribly troubling and profane imagery, story line, and language.
“Along with attacking gun rights, it was also blasphemous against Christianity, featuring a video of a gun-wielding Jesus that turns into a porno,” said the outlet.
“The crazy, over-the-top animated series was released on March 12 and took on the topic by ridiculing white male gun owners for using guns as a replacement for testosterone in Episode 4, titled ‘Trigger Warning.’ Paradise’s police chief confesses to needing a gun to get an erection and the head of the NRA says the initials stand for Nards Removed Association. The script is off the wall, even for this totally unrealistic series.”
The outlet goes on to say, “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.”
The depiction of the Son of God in such a horrible and degrading fashion is not only outrageous and offensive, it’s one more piece of evidence of the debasement of so-called “entertainment” in today’s culture.
