    Update Chris Pratt Defends His 'Infamously Anti-LGBTQ' Church Amid Controversy

    By Paul Bois - The Daily Wire




    After enough critics have sounded off about his "infamously anti-LGBTQ" church, actor Chris Pratt has issued a public response in defense of his house of worship.

    In a post on his Instagram and Facebook stories, the "Guardians of the Galaxy" actor said that Hillsong Church is not a hateful place and opens its "doors to absolutely everyone."

    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.

    Despite what the Bible says about my 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 their love and support. It is what I have seen them do for others on countless occasions regardless of sexual orientation, race, or gender.

    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's post included a quote from Jesus, "I give you a new command, love one another," which the actor said "guides me in my life."

    "He is a God of Love, Acceptance, and Forgiveness. Hate has no place in my or this world," Pratt concluded.

    This past Friday, openly lesbian actress Ellen Page publicly criticized Chris Pratt for attending Hillsong Church, attended also by Justin Bieber and Kendall Jenner. It was founded in Australia with locations in New York City and Los Angeles. Carl Lentz, leader of the New York branch, said in 2015 that homosexuality is a sin. Later that year, two male choir members of the church got married and Brian Houston, the church’s global senior pastor, released a statement denouncing the union.

    For this, Ellen Page and several LGBTQ activists have been demanding Chris Pratt publicly denounce Hillsong's past statements or clarify his own position at the very least. Page tweeted Monday, "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. The damage it causes is severe. Full stop. Sending love to all."

    Ok, indulging her...the church won't employ gays. I suppose you could say this is not very progressive by today's "standards" (argument for another day).

    Where did she get the notion of hate from, though?

    She defined what hate is. And then fought the hate. That's the MO. It's not being hateful if you are fighting oppressive (self-defined) hatred.

    I just emphasize this enough. It's the same justification for opposing free speech on campuses. Classic liberal thinkers must just shudder.

    In today's day and age? They're violently convulsing and foaming at the mouth on a daily basis.
