Chris Pratt has released a statement through his Instagram stories in response to Ellen Page's claim that his church is anti-LGBTQ +. The 38-year-old Jurassic World Actor wrote: "It has recently been suggested that I am part of a church that & # 39; hates a certain group of people & is notoriously anti-LGBTQ." Nothing is further from the truth.
"I'm going to a church that opens their doors to absolutely everyone."
The star – who is engaged to Katherine Schwarzenegger – also said that his church supported him freely after his divorce from Anna Faris – despite what the Bible says about divorce. "My church community was there for me at every step, never to judge, just gracefully accompanying my walk," he continued. "They have helped me tremendously with offering love and support, it is what I have seen they do for others on countless occasions regardless of sexual orientation, race or gender." Chris regularly visits the Zoe Church in LA, which describes itself as a "place where our doors are open to people from all backgrounds – no matter where they are on their travels – and we hope everyone feels welcomed, comfortable and loved". According to its predecessor, it is modeled after Hillsong, where celebrities like Justin Bieber, Hailey Baldwin and Kendall Jenner regularly go to Mass. Jezebel reports that Although Zoe Church seems to embrace and welcome everyone, Hillsong & # 39; s world pastor it & # 39; a happy welcoming church & # 39; has mentioned, but we are not a church that confirms a homosexual lifestyle. & # 39;

Juno actress Ellen criticized the church on Twitter after Chris spoke his religion on an American chattow.
& # 39; O, K. Um. But his church is notorious for lgbtq, so maybe that's also something for you? & # 39; She tweeted. She added: "If you are a famous actor and you belong to an organization that hates a certain group of people, do not be surprised if someone asks themselves why it is not addressed." Anti-LGBTQ is wrong, there are not on two sides, the damage it causes is serious, complete stop, send love to everyone. "
