The group behind the petition had a list of issues with the show. 

Amazon Prime Video

More than 20,000 people have signed a petition demanding the series Good Omens be removed from Netflix . The trouble is the show is streamed on Amazon Prime .

The petition, which has surpassed its original goal of 15,000 signatures, calls the show a mockery of religion for depicting "God as a tyrant and the Devil as being good." The Christian group behind the campaign found an issue with other aspects of the show -- God being voiced by a woman, the portrayal of the Antichrist as a normal kid, the four riders of the apocalypse as a biker gang and more.
