Chris Pratt has defended his church on Monday, days after Ellen Page called it "infamously anti-LGBTQ."

Pratt spoke about his 21-day Biblical fast during an appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert last week, bringing attention to his religious beliefs.

He took to social media earlier today to write that: "It has been suggested I belong to a church which 'hates a certain group of people" and which is 'infamously anti -LGBTQ.' Nothing could be further from the truth. I go to a church that opens its doors to absolutely everyone'.

"Despite what the Bible says about divorce my church community was there for me every step of the way, never judging, just gracefully accompanying me on my walk", he continued.

Chris added, "My faith is important to me but no church defines me or my life, and I am not a spokesman for any church or group of people".

What actually does define him, according to the star, are his own personal values which include the freedom for anyone to love anyone, free from any judgment from 'their fellow man'. "Hate has no place in my or this world".

In a February 11 Instagram story he posted a photo of a lamb and wrote "Jesus said 'I give you a new command, love one another.'" Underneath it he wrote "This is what guides me in my life". He is a God of love, acceptance and forgiveness.

However, actress Ellen Page noticed, tweeting, "Oh. K. Um".

Page, a gay advocate who married Emma Portner a year ago, explained why she felt it was important to speak out on Pratt's church one day after her initial comments. "Being anti LGBTQ is wrong, there aren't two sides". The damage it causes it severe.

Senior pastor Brian Houston at Hillsong previously said in a 2015 statement that the church does "not affirm a gay lifestyle".

She said in another tweet: "If lgbtq+ people are expressing their pain, their trauma, their experiences ... maybe just try and listen?" It's a lovely and life changing feeling, empathy. Pratt, along with Justin Bieber and wife Hailey Baldwin, Vanessa Hudgens and other celebs, has been spotted at Christian megachurch Hillsong.
