A religious Christian group in the US called Return to Order recently launched a petition calling for Netflix to cancel the series Good Omens. Their reasoning is that the show is blasphemous to the extent that it "mocks God's wisdom" and "presents devils and Satanists as normal and even good, where they merely have a different way of being...""This is another step to make Satanism appear normal, light and acceptable," the organization notes on its website. "We must show our rejection.

The term was coined after Barbara Streisand tried to keep photographs of her house from becoming public. Her efforts, though, only got people more curious about what her house looked like and generated a ton of publicity as a result.In any event, if you're at all curious about what Good Omens brings to the table, the trailer can be viewed below.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hUJoR4vlIIs

"The US says it does not rule out the use of force... This would be a disaster for the region," Putin said during an annual televised phone-in with screened questions posed by Russian viewers. Moscow has backed Tehran in its stand off with the United States since Washington pulled out of an international 2015 nuclear agreement with Iran last year.
