Ellen Page Slams "Guardians of the Galaxy" Star Chris Pratt for Attending Anti-LGBTQ Church

Nagini Shree |Feb 09, 2019

Actress and activist Ellen Page is calling out fellow celebrity Chris Pratt for attending an “infamously anti-LGBTQ" church.

Page’s criticism came after Chris Pratt appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert and talked about his faith. The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part actor regularly attends Zoe Church,  a youth-oriented church and Pratt was also a Hillsong church attendee.  A number of other celebrities including Justin and Hailey Bieber, Selena Gomez, Kylie and Kendall Jenner - have become closely associated with churches like Hillsong and Zoe.

It is reported that churches like Hillsong and Zoe claim to welcome LGBTQ people, but many still hold conservative Christian views about marriage ― meaning they are privately unsupportive of queer relationships or same-sex marriages.

Ellen Page, who is known for playing Juno in her Oscar-nominated role, tweeted about the appearance of the actor shortly after, writing:

Ellen Page came out as gay in 2014 and tied the knot with her partner and choreographer Emma Portner, in a private ceremony last year. She doubled down on her comment against Pratt and his churches, which she considered “infamously anti-LGBTQ.”

The “Guardians of the Galaxy” star sat down with Colbert to promote “The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part,” and shared that he completed the “Daniel fast,” a 21-day fast inspired by the biblical prophet Daniel. He also said the pastor shared with his words of wisdom about balancing fame and his inner self. “It’s kind of like our Lent; we give something up,” and Chris Patt shared he was “inspired by my pastor.”

Page’s tweet has racked up close to 80,000 likes.
