Paris Jackson’s ‘Lesbian Jesus’ Depiction in Upcoming Film Draws Criticism

Paris Jackson is facing heavy criticism for her role in portraying Jesus as a lesbian in upcoming “Habit” film. The Janell Shirtcliff-directed flick centers around a street-smart party girl with a Jesus fetish who gets mixed up in a violent drug deal, and finds a possible way out by masquerading as a Nun. “Habit”, which also stars Bella Thorne, has been described as “Christianophobic garbage” by over 300,000 people who have signed a petition to halt its distribution.

“Distributors haven’t picked it up as of yet, so 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”, reads part of the petition’s description. “Habit” is already in post-production but neither its release date, nor promotional materials are available to the public yet.
