Ellen Page Is Not Here For Chris Pratt’s Chosen Church: “Infamously Anti LGBTQ”
Recently actor Chris Pratt was on Late Show With Stephen Colbert. On the show, he discussed his new lifestyle involving a different diet and church home. The imaginary brakes were put into used on this lifestyle change, when Ellen Page caught wind of the church’s name that he now belongs to. She made it be known, on her Twitter account, that this church in particular are known for their views against the LGBTQ+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Trans-sexual, Queer and etc.) community.
The Canadian actress was not here for the affiliation at all. In her tweet made on Feb 8th, she took quick action to call out Pratt for being a member of Hillsong Church. The church accepts members of all walks of life, but they cannot lead in the church if they are openly gay. To add more impact to this blow back, the church at hand has history of sexual abuse and has support in conversion therapy. Conversion therapy is basically an experience where they focus on how someone became gay, what made them choose that sexuality and how they can change their sexuality. This church came to America in 2010 with high shine and big names, and somehow managed to cover up any bad press for almost a decade. People like Ellen Page, who is married to Emma Portner stopped the covering up before it could hit its milestone by calling them out.
Ellen is not just targeting Chris Pratt’s choice in church, but calling out the people who are openly against the LGBTQ+ lifestyle. Just last week she was on Colbert’s show expressing how she felt about the vice president of the United States.
“Let’s just be clear. The Vice President of America wishes I didn’t have the love with my wife. He wanted to ban that in Indiana, he believes in conversion therapy. He has hurt LGBTQ+ people so badly as the governor of Indiana,” said Page.
She tied together how elected officials like Mike Pence and churches like Hillsong are harming the community she belongs to. She spoke on how people like the men mentioned before are adding to the culture of harming openly gay figures like Jussie Smollett and the nature of bullying children for liking who they like. Hopefully Chris Pratt has a statement to clarify his stance on the topic at hand.
