As Easter is fast approaching the following email is quite topical.
At first glance the religious amongst you would, quite rightly, take offence at a film which reportedly depicts Jesus as being homosexual.
You may even be tempted to sign the e-petition in order to try and get the film banned.
There’s just one thing though..
The film doesn’t actually exist!
If you search around the internet then you will find that the same, or at least a very similar, email has been circulating since around 2001.
Please read carefully and comply – Thanks
A pornographic movie is being shot and is intended to show up in America soon, which shows Jesus and his disciples as homosexuals.
This is similar to a play that has been in the Theatre halls for a while.
It’s called “Corpus Christi” which means “The Body of Christ”.
It is a revolting joke of our Lord.
But we can make a difference, that’s why I’m sending this e-mail to all of you. Could you, please, add your name to this e-mail’s list’s end?
If you do so, together we WILL be able to ban this movie from being shown in America .. Apparently, some regions from Europe have banned the movie already.
All we need is a lot of signatures! Remember! , Jesus said: “That he who denies Me before men, I will also deny Him before my Father which is in heaven.”

IF WE WORK TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE IT!!!! Thanks!
I don’t know what the original intent of the hoax was but in this day and age of phishing and spam I certainly wouldn’t recommend giving out your email address to strangers, and especially when replying to such bogus messages!
