June 20th, 2019, American Christian Community denounce Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman’s story as making Satanism part of society-but signing a petition against the wrong streaming company.
But later on the group of protestors admits their error in petitioning Netflix instead of Amazon Prime.
More than 20,000 Christians sign the petition against the series “Good Omens,” based on Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett’s 1990 fantasy novel.
However, mistakenly they signed the petition to Netflix, but Amazon Prime makes the series. If you still check the petition site URL its showing Netflix instead Amazon Prime.
Good Omens (Six-part series) was released last month.
The show is featuring David Tennant as the demon Crowley and Michael Sheen as the angel Aziraphale, who collaborate to prevent the coming of the antichrist and an imminent apocalypse.
According to sources, the last request by Pratchett’s to Gaiman before he leaves the world was to adopt the novel they wrote together.
Upon the request of Pratchett, Gaiman wrote the screenplay and worked as showrunner on Amazon/BBC production.
However, since the show is the clear signal to make Satanism as a part of society, the Christian community get totally against the release of the show and start petitioning against it.
They also apologize in the starting note regarding their blunder which they made by petitioning Netflix instead of Amazon Prime and reasons why they want Amazon to cancel the show:
“Due to an oversight by Return to Order staff, this petition originally listed Netflix as responsible for the offensive series “Good Omens.” Amazon Video released the series on May 31. We regret the mistake, and the protests will be delivered to Amazon when the campaign is complete.
The Amazon series “Good Omens,” based on a book by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman, portrays the agents of Good and Evil as fighters in an arbitrary struggle devoid of meaning and truth. This series presents devils and Satanists as normal and even good, where they merely have a different way of being, and mocks God’s wisdom in the following ways:
- An angel and demon are good friends and are meant to be earth’s ambassadors for Good and Evil respectively.
- This pair tries to stop the coming of the Antichrist because they are comfortable and like the earth so much.
- A woman voices God.
- The Antichrist, who will oppose the Kingdom of God, is portrayed as a normal kid that has special powers and a mission to destroy the world which he doesn’t really want to do.
- There are groups of Satanic “nuns” that are chosen to raise the Antichrist.
- The four riders of the Apocalypse, God’s means of punishing sinful earth, are portrayed as a group of bikers.
In the end, this is a denial of Good and Evil: morality and natural law do not exist, just humanitarianism and an ultimately useless creed. This is another step to make Satanism appear normal, light, and acceptable. We must show our rejection. Please sign our petition, telling Amazon that we will not stand silent as they destroy the barriers of horror we still have for evil.”
Gaiman, on the other side, released a tweet regarding the petition by saying:
“I love that they are going to write to Netflix to try and get #GoodOmens canceled. Says it all really. This is so beautiful … Promise me you won’t tell them?”
The publisher and science fiction critic Cheryl Morgan tweeted:
“Miraculously God has already done it. Don’t tell them She put it on Amazon instead.”
