Chris Pratt has responded to Ellen Page’s claim of him for supporting an “infamously anti-LGBTQ” church. He said, “No church defines me or my life”
Earlier The Guardians of The Galaxy star voiced his support for Hillsong. It is a global church group favored by many celebrities like Justin Bieber. After this incident, Juno actress Ellen Page asked Pratt to address Hillsong’s views towards LGBTQ people.
Chris discussed his ‘spiritual side’ on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert”. Page replied about that in this way, “Oh. K. Um. But his church is infamously anti lgbtq so maybe address that too?”
The Oscar-nominated star is openly gay. Last month she celebrated her anniversary to wife Emma Portner.
In an Instagram Story, Pratt said that Page’s claims are “further from the truth.” He said, “I go to a church that opens their doors to absolutely everyone,” he wrote, stating that “no church defines me or my life, and I am not a spokesman for any church or any group of people.”
Then he added, “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.”
Hillsong leader Brian Houston stated, “Hillsong Church welcomes ALL people but does not affirm all lifestyles. Put clearly, we do not affirm a gay lifestyle and because of this we do not knowingly have actively gay people in positions of leadership, either paid or unpaid.”
