Last week, Canadian actress Ellen Page paid Chris Pratt to promote her "infamous anti-LGBTQ" church Late show with Stephen Colbert. Now Guardians of the Galaxy the actor responded to her statement.
Pratt took his story, Instagram, to investigate allegations that the Hillsong church he belongs to discriminates against the LGBTQ community.
"I recently suggested belonging to a church that" hates a certain group of people "and is" infamously anti-LGBTQ, "he wrote," Nothing can be further from the truth. I'm going to a church that opens its doors to everyone. "
Pratt said he was accepted with open arms despite the biblical teachings of divorce, with members "kindly accompany me on my walk" and "offer love and support."
Pratt continued to say that while his church is important to him, he does not define him and is not an official spokesman for Hillsong.
"My values determine who I am," he concluded. "We need less hatred in this world, no more, I am a man who believes everyone has the right to love, who want to be free from the fate of his neighbor."
Despite Pratt's claim that the Church welcomed all, Hillsong issued a statement in 2015 saying, "We do not confirm the homosexual lifestyle," and claim that marriage is to be a man-woman relationship.
