Actor Ellen Page doubled down on her criticism of celebrities who attended “anti-LGBTQ churches” on Saturday, after she made headlines for criticizing actor Chris Pratt for attending Hillsong Church, according to a report by Variety Magazine.
“LGBTQ people are hated just for who they are and that’s wrong. To hate anyone for how they identify is just wrong,” Page, who is making her claim for the ‘Victim of the Year Award‘ said in an interview. “That’s why I hate people who identify as Christians.”
The comments came after movie star and vocal Christian Chris Pratt admitted that he had attended Hillside Church, whose pastor was criticized in 2015 for calling homosexuality a sin.
Pratt has said such hateful things as, “God is real. God loves, you, God wants the best for you, believe that. I do,” “Just be comfortable with who you are,” and, “You can pour melted ice cream on regular ice cream. It’s like a sauce!”
To Page, that’s unacceptable. “Clearly, he is a hateful person and I hope that he burns in hell for all that hate, but I don’t believe in hell, so I hope he burns here on earth. But that doesn’t make me a hateful person.”
“You can’t just say something is a sin and expect that to be okay. Claiming that something is wrong is just plain wrong,” she said and dropped her mic.
