During his recent appearance on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Thursday night (February 7), Chris, who belongs to Hillsong Church, spoke about his “Bible fast” for 21 days.

“Oh. K. Um. But his church is infamously anti lgbtq so maybe address that too?” Ellen wrote in response to a headline about his appearance on the show.

Hillsong pastor Brian Houston previously stated in 2015 that the church holds to “traditional Christian thought on gay lifestyles.”

    shut up ellen. so his religion doesn’t accept gay people. it’s none of your business; it’s not YOUR church or YOUR religion. people can have their own beliefs and they don’t have to be your beliefs.

  • mahbelle

    she needs to mind her own business. it’s HIS religion and he’s entitled to his beliefs. he’s not harming her in any way.

  • xtincta

    It’s not just HIS religion when it directly affects her and people like her. Y’all love acting like religion exist in a vacuum. Newsflash it doesn’t. Religion has negatively affected many aspects of society which means it’s going to be heavily scrutinized.

  • USWeeklyHatesComments

    Yeah, I’m sorry, but his “church” reads a little culty.

  • USWeeklyHatesComments

    I also laugh at churches who have negative views on homosexuality, but are totally okay with having a congregation filled with divorced sinners, people who opening practice premarital sex, use the lord’s name in vain, etc…. THOSE sinners are a-ok because at least they aren’t gay. ::rollseyes:: 🙄🙄🙄

  • Phil the Donahue

    and what if they get cast on a film together? Pretty sure that would be an issue. He’s most likely gay if he has problems with gays. Everyone who has problems with gays are gay.

  • writer887

    It is not harming her directly but it is harming the lives and civil liberties of members in her community. Hate has consequences and the message of hate his church preaches negatively affects the lives of innocent people. USE YOUR BRAIN.

  • Phil the Donahue

    you gay?

  • DeadP001

    I cannot believe that dude is a religious fanatic, does he not know how many gay people he’s worked with?

    I’m not watching Guardians 3, sorry Marvel.

  • Mercyneal

    She needs to mind her own business. She attacked Trump as anti gay but ignored people who reminded her that Trump nominated the first ever openly gay US ambassador- Ric Grenell, to Germany.

  • Mercyneal

    It’s none of her business, sport.

  • Mercyneal

    Stuff and nonsense. She has no career to speak of, and she will never be in a movie with him.

  • Mercyneal

    None of our business. Get a life

  • SSLove

    Is anyone going to talk about how Ellen looks severely anorexic in her Colbert appearance? I am liberal but I see a mental breakdown coming. She needs to eat, attacking Chris over this is stupid. She might as well attack all Christians for mistakes made by people before them.

  • SSLove

    Just because he attends a church doesn’t mean he agrees with his pastor’s private comment 4 years ago.
    And yeah, looking at your chosen avatar – you’re gonna be seeing Guardians 3. Probably at midnight on the first Thursday

  • SSLove

    Why does Chris Pratt have to speak for his entire religion publicly about something they may never have discussed in the church? There is no mention of exactly what is being preached or taught.
    And HE is not affecting HER at all. She’s reeling.

  • mahbelle

    We live in a free society and who are you or anyone else to dictate what religious beliefs a person may have? I’m an atheist but I don’t care that other people believe in god or jesus because it’s none of my business. i’m sick of the LBGTXYZ community insisting everyone accept them. Everyone doesn’t have to accept them if they don’t want to. As long as they’re not hurting anyone, who cares?

  • Pat

    Not sure why he needs to talk about this at all. He is entitled to worship where he chooses. It’s called freedom of religion. If he is kind and does not mistreat people or judge people for their personal choices, it’s just wrong to call people out like this. Ellen should just live her life and leave other people alone.

  • Justin Matthews

    Page sounds more Thirsty than activist….

  • Kat

    Oh so he owes her an apology ???

  • Maria M.

    I am bisexual but I hate this pretentious, nazi bitch! How about you start practicing the tolerance you preach. He doesn’t owe her anything or to LGBT community.

  • Ron-he

    lol

  • Ron-he

    What?!

  • wearing

    Because Christians are known for religious overreach. It’s all over our government, which is supposed to be separate, and impedes on the rights of shit loads of Americans. And like hell you’re an atheist, stop lying just to post a stupid point.

  • Dorothyfromoz

    I don’t think christianity ( no matter what denomination) accepts the practice of any sin, they just preach against it, but they still accept sinners. After all I don’t know any human being who hasn’t committed a sin. You just have to accept your faults and try to overcome all sin. I think the real issue is that people don’t want to admit they are sinners. Christ didn’t come to save the saints, he came here to save all sinners who accept him as their savior.

  • Conte435

    Who the hell is she that he has the answer to her. The ignorance of people on this site is hilarious, what his pastor said is no different and probably withmore sensitively than how a priest would answer or a Buddhist monk or Muslim Imam, no worldwide religion accepts gay lifestyle or marriage, Christianity just isn’t activity against it.

    Stephen Colbert is a practicing Catholic, so why doesn’t she ask him to denounce his Catholic faith.

    Get back to us when she asks her Muslim friends if they will denounce the Koran harsh treatment of gays, should they be killed and this isn’t in 300 years ago. Homosexuals are put on trial and executed now in Saudi Arabia, Iran and Pakistan, just to name a few Islamic countries.

    And if you believe secular societies are more tolerant, Communist China that disallows any religion, has same position on gay lifestyle has any major religion.

  • Conte435

    Could you stretch anymore if you tried yes because whatever my priest or pastor says means I believe every word he comes out of his mouth….. so I guess every Christian or Muslim can’t do a movie with a gay person because the religion says their lifestyle is a sin

  • John Keller

    Why does the Gaystapo hate Christianity and Christians?

  • Conte435

    Trump has also nominated openly gay Federal judges as well, one is a filipino that Democrats are trying block.

    Ignorance of these peoples is scary, Trump who supported gay marriage a decade before Hillary Clinton and Obama, who was on the cover of Advocate in 2000, is now some flaming homophobe all because the left needs people to fit their narratives.

  • atlqueen112

    I like your post. So sick of the misunderstanding about this.

  • atlqueen112

    My goodness that is a STRONG opinion you have there. Lol

  • atlqueen112

    Get her!!

  • Sim

    Funny, we don’t recall her asking Stephen Colbert to explain the Catholic Church’s position on homosexuality when she was on his show last week.

    Never notice her demanding prominent Muslim to explain Islams position on homosexuality.

  • rosaryblue

    Going after someone’s religion isn’t fair. Sorry Ellen, not everyone will agree with everyone else. It happens.

  • suzybel

    You dumb twit, not everybody agrees with your lifestyle.

  • Sim

    It’s odd that you’re demanding everyone believe and think exactly as you do, in the same token if they don’t they not you harm the civil liberties of others.
    What is more moronic is that end your post with think..

    You have no concept of the separation of someone’s morality and law, of the freedom of religion or freedom of speech.
    Also your justification to deny other people’s rights because some marxist belief in collectivism. Someone hates that is on them, not because they were exposed to unapproved by you and Ellen Page opinions, I guess you don’t actually use our own brain or you would be to explain how majority Christian countries are the most tolerant of LBGT.

    I morally disagree with Ellen Page’s beliefs on abortion, with her belief on no limits placed on abortion, even until 9th month, or the government should supplement it, her beliefs actually does harm life.

    No one demands she answer or justify herself to me

  • rrodriguez0309

    This church donates money to ANTI lGBT and hate societies.. that’s the problem she was with them!!

  • Max

    Thanks Ellen! F*ck you Chris!

  • DeadP001

    Funny I dont recall Deadpool being a homophobe muchless a guy who attends a homophobic church that believes in conversion therapy.

    I do however believe he’d blow the entire building up and shoot dead the so called ‘pastor’ ie HATE PREACHER

    I love her! You tell ‘em girl. This homophobic prick needs to go just like James Gun.

  • Yeah Right

    Why is it that celebrities think they have a right to force their opinions on everyone? So Chris Pratt has to conform to Ellen Page’s opinions? Ellen Page has the right to her opinion just as Chris Pratt does. Looks like she is trying to get some PR at Chris Pratt’s expense. Whatever!

  • Tyrell

    Agreed THIS guy ABOVE deserves a BIG down vote , while YOU 2 , take THIS ^ vote
