Chris Pratt is squarely disputing Ellen Page‘s claim Hillsong Church — to which he belongs — is anti-LGBTQ … but emphasizing he doesn’t communicate for the Church.
The actor responded to Page’s tweet final week calling Hillsong “anti LGBTQ” — she doubled down over the weekend, saying there’s no excuse for anybody patronizing an org that hates.
If you’re a well-known actor and also you belong to a company that hates a sure group of individuals, don’t be stunned if somebody merely wonders why it’s not addressed. Being anti LGBTQ is mistaken, there aren’t two sides. The injury it causes is extreme. Full cease. Sending like to all

But, Chris says nothing may very well be farther from the reality, including that Hillsong opens its doorways to “absolutely everyone.” He says that though the Bible teaches divorce is mistaken, Hillsong was there by his each step of the way in which … by no means judging him.
Hillsong’s Senior Pastor, Brian Houston, stated in 2015 … “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.”
Chris didn’t deal with Houston’s remark, and appeared to sofa his help, saying, “[N]o church defines me or my life, and I am not a spokesman for any church or any group of people.”
He ended his assertion by saying very clearly that he thinks everybody ought to be capable to love whomever they need, free from the judgment of their fellow man.
