The movies which decide to rub religion the wrong way often face its wrath. The latest victim is Paris Jackson starter Habit.
Her portrayal of Jesus has not been taken very kindly by a section of the Christian community. They have passed disparaging remarks against Jackson accusing her of blasphemy. This includes showcasing Jesus in a wrong light and hence offending many of his followers.
It’s notable that Paris is the daughter of Michael Jackson. She has been under fire for this Bella Thorne movie. That’s what has made things really difficult for the creators as well as the apologists of the movie.
WHY DO PEOPLE HAVE A PROBLEM WITH THE MOVIE?
A change.org petition seeks to correct what they call as offensive to their religion. It’s being seen as insulting Christianity.
“A new blasphemous Hollywood film is predicted to come out soon depicting Jesus as a lesbian woman,” explained the petition’s creator. “Let’s please spread awareness and wake people up to the Christianophobic garbage that is spread nowadays, but is somehow accepted and praised by society.”
We are now a society where we try to be sensitive to others beliefs,” wrote one signee. “Why is this okay to offend Christians? It’s not!”
“All for the almighty dollar,” said another. “You should be ashamed.”
The petition currently has more than 280,000 signatures.

One of the film’s executive producers, Cassian Elwes, addressed these claims on Twitter.
“Of course the story has been completely blown out of proportion In fact Paris appears in a fantasy moment that Bella has in the film where Bella has a vision of her mother( played by Paris ) dressed as Jesus.”
