Way back in the 1970's I remember watching a TV special from a "Christian" network called something like "The New Sacrilegious Movies" . It was hosted by Pat Boone and featured a panel discussion by four right-wing Christian intellectuals and educators (one of them a Catholic priest) in front of an audience of clean-cut Christian youth. The discussion was about these two movies that portrayed Jesus Christ in what they thought was a less than favorable light. One of the movies was, I think, a Danish film that showed Christ to be sexually active (I can't remember its name), the other was "The Passover Plot" which portrayed Christ as a wild-eyed political radical who would use drugs to fake his own death on the cross and rise up from the dead three days later to convince the people he was "divine" and lead a revolt against the Romans. During the course of the show there was a phone interview with Donald Pleasence who starred in "The Passover Plot" who seemed (as far as I can remember) rather surprised that anyone would take a movie so seriously.
Anyway, the panel agreed that if the movie-going flower of American youth were exposed to these evil films they would be transformed into animal-mutilating, black-robe-wearing, Satan-worshipping, Alice Cooper listening little pagans and that our entire civilazation (meaning America) would suffer a sudden, violent and cataclysmic collapse brought on by the wrath of God.
The panel also said that the organization that sponsored this TV special had a "secret plan" to prevent these movies being shown in the U.S., which I guess must have been successful because I haven't heard of either of these movies since
