Over less than 24 hours ago, we posted about how the supremely controversial film, The First Temptation of Christ was banned by a Brazilian Court.

However, the ban has certainly not lasted too long and Brazil’s Supreme Court president Dias Toffoli has overturned Rio de Janeiro judge Benedicto Abicair’s decision.

The First Temptation of Christ is a film on Netflix in which Jesus is depicted as a gay man. The series has faced criticism from Brazil’s Catholic right and many conservative public figures, including President Bolsonaro’s son who tweeted that the show was “garbage.” Offices of the special’s producers Porta dos Fundos were even firebombed on the morning of Dec. 24. Supreme Court president Dias Toffoli claimed this week’s ban was unjust and against ideals of freedom of speech, saying that a humorous satire cannot weaken the values of the Christian faith, whose existence is traced back more than two thousand years, and which is the most popular religion in Brazil.
