Chris Pratt denies that the church he attends is “infamously” anti-LGBTQ+, as Ellen Page recently alleged on Twitter.
Taking to Instagram, Hollywood’s least valuable Chris posted on his story that it “has recently been suggested that i belong to a church which ‘hates people’ and is ‘infamously anti-LGBTQ,’” Us Weekly reports. “Nothing could be further from the truth. I go to a church that opens their doors to absolutely everyone.”
“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,” he wrote. “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.”
According to Us Weekly, Pratt attends Zoe Church, whose pastor, Chad Veach, once told an interview that he modeled his church off of Hillsong Church — the same Hillsong Church that inexplicable Vogue cover stars Justin Bieber and Hailey Baldwin both go to. Hillsong’s global pastor, Brian Houston, once said that his church “is not a church that affirms a gay lifestyle,” which, per the transitive property of “This Church Sounds Bad,” would indicate that Zoe Church might also not be all that into “affirming a gay lifestyle.”
This seems to be Page’s reasoning. Last week, in response to a clip of Pratt talking about Zoe on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Page tweeted: “Oh. K. Um. But his church is infamously anti lgbtq so maybe address that too?”
Pratt apparently disagrees with Page’s characterization of Zoe Church as a hate-mongering homebase for homo-hating homophobes, and he definitely doesn’t seem to want people to think he hates the gays. “I am a man who believes that everyone is entitled to love who they want free from the judgement of their fellow man,” he wrote in his Instagram post Monday.
That’s all well and good, but does he think a that a Christian baker should have to bake a wedding cake for a gay couple even if he thinks gay people are gross? That’s what IIIIIIIIIII wanna know…
