Guardians of the Galaxy and The Lego Movie 2 star Chris Pratt responded to Ellen Page’s accusations that he attends an “infamously anti-LGBTQ” church via Instagram Stories.

Pratt would write:

“It has recently been suggested that I belong to a church which “hates a certain group of people” and is “infamously anti-LGBTQ”. Nothing could be further from the truth. I go to a church that opens their doors to absolutely everyone.”

He would continue:

“Despite what the Bible says about divorce my church community was there for me every step of the way, never judging, just gracefully accompanying me on my walk. They helped me tremendously offering love and support. It is what I have seen them do for others on countless occasions regardless of sexual orientation, race or gender.”

Pratt would add:

“My faith is important to me but no church defines me or my life, and I am not a spokesman for any church or any group of people. My values define who I am. We need less hate in this world, not more. I am a man who believes that everyone is entitled to love who they want free from the judgment of their fellow man.”

Pratt would conclude with an image of two sheep in a field:

“Jesus said ‘I give you a new command, love one another.’ This is what guides me in my life. He is a God of Love, Acceptance and Forgiveness. Hate has no place in my or this world.”

Ellen Page targeted Chris Pratt over his Church attendance in two Tweets. The first came after Pratt appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to discuss his movie The Lego Movie 2. During the interview he spoke at length about his church and the Daniel fast he participated in.

Page took issue with the interview and stated, “But his church is infamously anti lgbtq.”

She would double down in subsequent Tweets saying, “If you are a famous actor and you belong to an organization that hates a certain group of people, don’t be surprised if someone simply wonders why it’s not addressed. Being anti LGBTQ is wrong, there aren’t two sides.”

Page would be joined by Leah Remini who called out members of the Church of Scientology including Tom Cruise, John Travolta, Kelly Preston, Laura Prepon, Jenna Elfman, Beck, Ann Archer, Kirstie Alley, Giovani Ribisi, Elizabeth Moss, Michael Pena, and Nancy Cartwright.

Page would add in subsequent Tweet.

What do you make of Chris Pratt’s response? Do you think he handled the situation properly?
