Ellen Page SLAMS Chris Pratt For His ‘Infamously Anti-LGBTQ’ Church!
Ellen Page calls out Chris Pratt‘s recent interview, where he discusses his faith.
On Thursday, The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part actor stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert where he opened up about his 21-day Daniel Fast that he participated in through his church, as well as advice given to him by his pastor about balancing fame and his inner self.
Katherine Schwarzenegger‘s fiance attends Hillsong Church, which was founded in Australia but now has locations in New York City and Los Angeles.
That same day, the Juno actress went on Twitter to SLAM the religious organization as “infamously anti-LGBTQ.” She wrote:
Oh. K. Um. But his church is infamously anti lgbtq so maybe address that too? https://t.co/meg8m69FeF

As we reported, the megachurch — whose members include Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez, and Kendall Jenner — has an alleged history of deep-seeded homophobia.
Carl Lentz — Hillsong’s New York City leader who has a weirdly close relationship with Bieber — told GQ in August 2015 that he considers homosexuality to be a sin, and would never allow an openly gay member to hold a leadership position in the church.
That same month, Lentz’s chapter released a public statement against two of its male choir members after learning that they were in a relationship, revealing that its view on homosexuality is “consistent with Scripture” and that Hillsong would “assist them on this journey with grace and compassion.”
Allegedly, in 2008, it was revealed that the church’s method of “assisting” LGBTQ members was to refer many of them to gay conversion therapy.
In January 2018, Page married dancer and choreographer Emma Portner.
