A petition organized by Return to Order — a group affiliated with the Catholic group the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family, and Property — backfired spectacularly this month when it asked Netflix to cancel the Amazon Prime show Good Omens.

"OK we promise not to make any more," Netflix UK & Ireland tweeted in response. Tweeted Amazon Prime, "Hey @netflix, we'll cancel Stranger Things if you cancel Good Omens."
