Last week, Chris Pratt appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, and they briefly discussed Pratt’s religion. Pratt didn’t mention his church, Hillsong, by name. He only mentioned that his pastor suggested he go on the Daniel Diet, and that’s what Colbert and Pratt discussed. Ellen Page tweeted about the coverage of Pratt’s appearance, coverage which seemed to take a positive slant – more of “Chris Pratt is a good guy, he’s churchy and it’s it cute that he followed the Daniel Diet.” Page was like “dude, your church is infamously anti-LGBTQ.” Page didn’t back down, and so now people are paying attention like never before to Pratt’s churchy ways. Which is why Pratt took to Instagram Live and posted this message:
For whatever record, I totally buy that Chris is not personally anti-LGBTQ or a bigot of any kind. I also think his personal politics and his personal faith are just that: his own business. But the thing is… he’s making a lot of money by branding himself a certain way, and being a church-going man of faith is a big part of that branding. Look no further than his engagement announcement for that – so being publicly pious and publicly church-going is part of his public image. So of course people are going to comment on it, especially when Hillsong does have such a terrible reputation as an anti-LGBTQ cult.
Also: he totally compared “being divorced” to being LGBTQ. Arguing that your cult church is totally fine with you being divorced is not the same f–king thing as your church not being rabidly anti-LGBTQ.
