Ellen Page slams Chris Pratt for supporting 'infamously anti-LGBTQ church'

The "Guardians of the Galaxy" actor appeared on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert" on Thursday night, February 07, to promote "The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part", and touched upon topics such as the pressures of fame, his religion, and the 21-day Daniel Fast that he participated in through his church.

And now, actress Ellen Page who is known for voicing opinions on vital matters took a dig at him not on his spiritual beliefs but for attending a church that has regressive beliefs about the LGBTQ population. "Oh. K. Um".

After seeing The Hollywood Reporter's tweet about Pratt's interview on Colbert, Page, who is openly gay, mentioned the actor's church was "infamously anti-LGBTQ".

"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", he said in a post on the church's website. He was a guy, who only ate fruits and vegetables and grains. "It's kind of like our Lent, you know, you give something up".


Carl Lentz, who leads the NY branch, came under fire for saying in 2015 that homosexuality is a sin and that a gay member could never hold a leadership position.

She branded the megachurch Hillsong, which has not only Pratt, but also Justin Bieber, Hailey Baldwin, Kendall Jenner and Selena Gomez among its members, "infamously anti-LGBTQ".

"Everyone is welcome at Hillsong church except for known predators, those who are disruptive, or those who have adversarial agendas", he said, adding that gay people are welcomed at the church but can not pursue a leadership role. I did it through my church. Video from the speech went viral. She said. "Kids are going to be abused, and they're going to kill themselves". Yes, their sexuality is involved with it, but it's not as cut-and-dry as you think it is. And people are going to be beaten on the street. I am lucky to have this time and this privilege to say this.
