Ellen Page Drags Chris Pratt for His "Infamously" Anti-LGBTQ Church

Ellen Page Calls Out Chris Pratt for Promoting Anti-LGBTQ Church on 'Colbert'

Ellen Page will star in Netflix's Umbrella Academy, which is expected to debut on the streaming network on February 15, 2019. "But his church is infamously anti-LGBT+ so maybe address that too?" Full stop. Sending love to all'.

"I was inspired by my pastor", he said bringing up a religious quote: "If the spotlight that is shining on you is brighter than the light that's within you, it will kill you".

The Guardians of the Galaxy star sat down with Stephen Colbert to promote The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, and Pratt said he just finished a 21-day Daniel Fast that he took part in through his church and that his pastor encouraged. "And so, for 21 days I had no meat, no sugar, no alcohol, and it was actually unbelievable, it was really cool!" Pratt defines his spirituality as non-denominational Christianity, but the actor is a member of the Hillsong church.

Thousands rally in Madrid against Spanish PM's proposed talks on Catalonia
The demonstrators gathered at the Plaza de Colon in the city centre under the slogan "For a united Spain, elections now!". Sanchez said on Saturday that the gathering would show a "Spain in black and white that simply proposes to go backwards".

In 2015, Hillsong's global pastor, Brian Houston, released a statement about the Christian church's controversial exclusionary policies, writing, "I do believe God's word is clear that marriage is between a man and a woman".

After his appearance, Page criticized Pratt for attending what she called an "infamously anti-LGBTQ" church.

As we reported, the megachurch - whose members include Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, and Kendall Jenner - has an alleged history of deep-seeded homophobia. "Put clearly, 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. "We are a gay welcoming church but we are not a church that affirms a gay lifestyle". Yes, their sexuality is involved with it, but it's not as cut-and-dry as you think it is. And they are going through a really unbelievable journey called life. And people are going to be beaten on the street. "This needs to f***ing stop".
