Fans accuse Chris Pratt of lying
Fans are accusing Chris Pratt of lying after his claims that he is not a person who follows religions. Pratt said in an interview that he does not observe any specific religion. His words didn’t convince many fans who took to social media saying the actor was fake.

Of note, at a 2018 MTV Movie & TV Awards event, Pratt was honored at this gala and said, “God is real. God loves you, God wants the best for you. Believe it. I want to.” These comments, along with some who were labeled as homophobic, made them believe he was not a religious person.
Chris Pratt says he’s not religious
The situation arose when Pratt said he was not a religious person. He believes in God but does not believe in religions and does not attend churches. He said men’s health magazine, “Maybe it was hubris. For me to stand up on stage and say the things that I said, I’m not sure I touched anybody.
The Jurassic World: Dominion The actor also opened up about the multiple comments about his attendance at Hillsong Church. A church that many believe is an anti-LGBT religious organization. He dismissed such comments saying “nothing could be further from the truth”. He added, “I’ve never been to Hillsong. I have never been to Hillsong. I don’t know anyone from this church.

The actor also made several comments on his Men’s Health profile. He said, “I didn’t know that I would somehow become the face of religion when I’m not a religious person. I think there is a distinction between being religious– adhering to man-made customs, often appropriating the fear reserved for what I believe to be a very real God – and using it to control people, take money from people, abuse children, steal land, justify hatred. It doesn’t matter what it is. The evil that is in every man’s heart has slipped on the back of religion and come with it.
More social media statements
Chriss Pratt also had his own take on faith and religion on his Instagram account, saying, “My faith is important to me but no church defines me or my life, and I am not a spokesperson for any church. or group of people. My values define who I am. We need less hate in the world, not more. I am a man who believes that everyone has the right to love whoever they want without the judgment of their neighbor.
guardians of the galaxy Director James Gunn also backed the actor up, saying, “It makes me absolutely furious. Chris is indescribably kind to people; he goes out of his way to help the children. He is a particularly loving father. And there’s a lot of things that people have literally made up about him: about his politics, about who he is, about what he thinks of other people, you know?
Fans call Chris Pratt a liar
For many, Pratt’s comments are false and only meant to save his career and not to be canceled from the multiple productions he is doing or about to do. For fans, he is a radical religious person with typical homophobic characteristics.
Note that fans consider that if he is homophobic, the studios should ban him from the productions he makes. This includes the new guardians of the galaxy sequel, which will be released in 2023. We also have a partial appearance in Thor: Love and Thunderwhen Thor is separated from this group.

Another production he does is in an Amazon Prime series called The list of terminals, broadcast every Friday on this streaming platform.
Fans blame Chris Pratt and want it canceled if it turns out to be homophobic and very religious. They called Pratt’s statements about men’s health hypocritical when he claimed he was not religious.
Fans notably took to Twitter to fill it with comments openly attacking the actor. The pro-LGBT+ community feels some statements Pratt made in 2018 offended them.
Chris Pratt saying he’s not religious and denying he attended a certain church when people have receipts is probably why people don’t like him. Many beloved celebrities go to church and are open about their faith.
People don’t like liars either.

Sir, I saw you publicly praying in a restaurant for a pound of buffalo meat, and you didn’t tip me compared to what you had previously given to our straight male staff. https://t.co/JUtuNYSSnh

To many, Pratt is sincere, considering that many believers in God today are not religious. This characteristic in society would give a vote of confidence to his assertion, since it is true that many people consider the doctrines of religions to be oppressive, even if they believe in a supreme being.
Do you think Chris Pratt is telling the truth or is this just a move to avoid cancellation?
