    Christ, they're stupid!

    (CNN)A petition started by a Christian organization calling for the removal of the show "Good Omens" missed its mark.

    Signed by more than 20,000 people, it calls for Netflix to pull the fantasy series from its platform. There's just one problem: Netflix doesn't offer the show. Amazon does.
    "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," the petition reads. Some of the petitioners' qualms include the fact that God is voiced by a woman, the Antichrist is portrayed as a normal kid and the four riders of the Apocalypse are portrayed as a group of bikers.

    "Please sign our petition, telling Netflix that we will not stand silent as they destroy the barriers of horror we still have for evil."

    The petition stopped loading on the Christian Return to Order website Thursday evening. Return to Order is a campaign by The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property, according to its website.

    The American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property, Netflix and Amazon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    "Good Omens" follows an angel Aziraphale (Michael Sheen) and demon Crowley (David Tennant) as they attempt to save the world from apocalypse and the coming of Antichrist, an 11-year-old. Based on a 1990 fantasy novel of the same name, the miniseries debuted on Amazon Prime last month.

    I love that they are going to write to Netflix to try and get #GoodOmens cancelled. Says it all really. https://twitter.com/wdebruinjr/status/1141368531751198721 …

    Neil Gaiman, who co-authored the book with Terry Pratchett, took the petition in stride.
    "I love that they are going to write to Netflix to try and get #GoodOmens cancelled. Says it all really," tweeted Gaimon, who also wrote the screenplay.​

    I remember when Kevin Smith received death threats and the xtian fundies were protesting over his film 'Dogma'... before it had even been made.

    Jeez TC how many hours a day do you go trolling for anti Christian propaganda? Just accept that the privileged position you have reached in life is mainly due to being brought up in a Christian country. The fact you are able to incessantly and tediously carry on about Christianity and Christians is directly because they are. Would love you to stand up for Gays in Saudi Arabia Iran or Indonesia where there are very few Christians and let me know how much better that goes for you.
    In those countries of course you would be so far in the closet they'ed need a crow bar to get you out. Nothing worst than a self absorbed, repetitive tedious, bigot who looks down his nose and criticises those that are as bigoted and intolerant as he is. I'm not sure if its that gigantic chip on your shoulder, or your feelings of inferiority that drives you to such a pointless need. Either way I hope you will finally reach the point of self acceptance where you no longer feel the need to carry on your Anti Christian crusade. But do carry on if it helps get those issues off of your chest.

    Please do correct me if I am wrong snide.
    If my memory serves me correctly. Is the U.S. motto
    A: In basement dwelling alcoholic tesla polishing morons we trust... Or
    B: In God we trust.

    I think you will find it's possibly B.
    Take your time. I realise you'll need to google the answer you alcohol soaked moron.
    Unlike you who goes round TD furiously repoeing like its confetti purely so you can send me a red each day, I am a little more discerning with repo. You really are one pathetic basement dwelling fat alcoholic tesla polisher. If you think you get a rise out of me, I should tell you I just laugh at you. You tedious little troll.
    Oh did I mention you were also a pathetic basement dwelling fat alcoholic tesla polisher? I'd hate to repeat myself....NOT! 555555555555555555555555

    Right so that slogan which doesn't specifically mention Jesus or Christianity and was only passed into law in 1956 makes America a Christian nation. What an utter fuckwit you are. You clearly know fuck all about American history as many of the founding fathers were Unitarian and hated organized religion. Go shove your religious dogma up your ass you fucking failed air conditioner salesmen.

    You fucking believe in Noah's ark.

    I was hoping to get a Judean Peoples Front sticker for the other side of the car to indicate a huge factional dispute with my wife but they don't make 'em.
    However, there have been some satisfyingly horrified looks from other motoristas as they pass what they think is an Isis supporter.

    The GDP of countries generally correlates negatively with their religiosity, i.e. the wealthier a population is the more secular it is.

    IMO, Conclusion: God is a masochist and does not like people who like him.
    Suggestion: She is in need of major therapy.

    ...definitely...an 11 year-old would need to overcome the shame and his parents would have to overcome their reluctance to press charges against a representative of God on earth, however...
