From the halls of Congress, to corporate boardrooms, to the motion picture industry, there is a rising tide of intolerance for Christians who hold to a view that takes the authority of the Bible seriously.

The latest example came in the form of a blast by actress Ellen Page last Thursday (who played Kitty Pryde in X-Men films) against Guardians of the Galaxy star Chris Pratt (shown). Page criticized the Pratt for simply attending a church — Hillsong Church, a “megachurch” also attended by Kendall and Kylie Jenner, as well as Justin Bieber. Page’s problem with Hillsong is that the pastor, Carl Lentz, has stated that homosexuality is a sin. Pratt responded to Page’s caustic remarks on Monday.

Considering that Christian churches have said — basing their beliefs on the Bible, which is considered by most Christians to be the Word of God — that any sexual relations outside of marriage between a man and a woman is a sin, this is certainly not a novel view. This would include homosexual activity, but it would also include, for example, adultery between two individuals, at least one of whom is married to someone else.

Pratt’s attendance at Hillsong became public when he appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, where he was asked about his religious views. Pratt told Colbert that he had just concluded a 21-day Daniel Fast, after being encouraged to do so by his pastor.

“If the spotlight that is shining on you is brighter than the light that’s within you, it will kill you,” Pratt told Colbert. Pratt did not bring up homosexuality, or any other kind of sexual sin with Colbert.
