Habit is a 2020 USA film by Janell Shirtcliff. Starring Bella Thorne, Bria Vinaite and Paris Jackson.
The casting of Jackson, a model and actor who is the daughter of the late pop star
Michael Jackson, opposite Bella Thorne and musician Gavin Rossdale in the film was announced in April .
The plot synopsis suggests that Thorne plays 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. Jackson's gender-bending take on the religious figure was reported to include a nose ring, tousled waves and a traditional robe.
Echoing PC rules that selectively ban actors from playing roles based on a
different ethnicity ('blackface'), the petitioners claim that it is unacceptable for a female to play a male role.The petitioners denounce the film as Christianophobic garbage, and call for the film to be banned. The petition has attracted about
The petition, which names Warner Bros and Lionsgate as its targets, claims that Jackson will play Jesus as a lesbian, though there is no mention of this in any publicly available reports of the film. The petition also claims the
film is blasphemous.

about 69,000 signatures.
Perenniel whinger Rajan Zed has called Sheffield's Neepsend Brew Co. to apologize and withdraw its Hanuman beer claiming it to be highly inappropriate.
Hindu campaigner Zed said that inappropriate usage of sacred Hindu deities or concepts or symbols
or icons for commercial or other agenda was not okay as it hurt the devotees. He said that that Lord Hanuman was highly revered in Hinduism and was meant to be worshipped in temples or home shrines and not to be used in selling beer for mercantile
intent. Moreover, linking Lord Hanuman with an alcoholic beverage was very disrespectful.
Neepsend Brew Co. has apologized after Hindus protested over its Hanuman Beer.
Gavin Martin, Director/Head Brewer of Neepsend Brew Co wrote to Rajan Zed:
Thank you for bringing this to our attention and we of course apologise for any offence we have caused. Though ignorance isn't an excuse we
certainly didn't mean any deliberate insult or disrespect by using the name...we'll be sure to research beer names more thoroughly in the future to avoid something like this happening again.
The US anti-porn campaigners Morality in Media (who now misleadingly name themselves as the National Centre on Sexual Exploitation) have been calling on international payment companies to censor the adult tube sites, most notably Pornhub. The group has
set up an international branch and recruited a few unknown morality campaign groups from around the world. Haley McNamara, director of the international branch writes in a letter to major payment companies:
Major credit card companies
continue to provide infrastructure to the exploitative pornography industry. As international anti-exploitation leaders, we urgently call on these financial institutions to cease processing payments and thereby refuse to aid human rights violations
We believe this decision would be in line with your corporate ethical commitment to processing legal purchases, and that it will advance your reputation by refusing profits from sexual violence, incest, sex trafficking, child sexual
abuse material, and other exploitation.
The pornography industry does not judge or verify consent in any videos on their sites, let alone live webcam videos. Tragically, this has resulted in worldwide cases of rape, child sexual
abuse, sex trafficking, and non-consensually shared pornography (or 'revenge porn') being uploaded onto mainstream pornography websites.
Further, we know that mainstream pornography is promoting themes of incest, rape, racism, sex
with youth, and sexual violence against women, which warps many users' sexual and neurological development. It is time for mainstream companies to stop propping up an industry that is inherently built on sexual exploitation.
