What’s the deal with liberals and Christianity? Now they want actor Chriss Pratt thrown out of Marvel for his religious beliefs. Thankfully, Director James Gunn on Monday defended Pratt and told haters to kick rocks.
Responding to a call on social media for the “Parks and Recreation” actor to be swapped out with actor Patrick Wilson in the upcoming “Guardian of the Galaxy Vol. 3,” Gunn said Pratt would “never” be replaced — but if he was, the whole team would “be going with him.”
“For what?” the director responded to the post. “Because of your made-up, utterly-false beliefs about him? For something that someone else told you about him that’s not true?”
“Chris Pratt would never be replaced as Star-Lord but, if he ever was, we would all be going with him.

Popular podcast host Joe Rogan defended Pratt on his show in December, claiming haters of the actor are largely reacting to Pratt’s Christianity.
“He’s kind of outside the lines in terms of his ideology,” Rogan said of Pratt. “He’s a Christian and he’s pretty open about it, and because of that they attack him.”
“It’s something so simple, like he just believes in Jesus,” the host explained, “and he like, you know, he likes to be a good person and they’re like ‘f*** him!’”
If you take a quick stroll through Twitter, liberals are calling for Pratt to be tarred and feathered for things the actor never said or acknowledged. Pratt isn’t politically outspoken so it’s just his belief in God that makes liberals hate him so much. The lot has made up all sorts of lies, including the one where Pratt’s church uses hate speech.
Pratt responded to that one on Twitter: “It has recently been suggested that I belong to a church which ‘hates a certain group of people’ and is ‘infamously anti-LGBTQ.’ Nothing could be further from the truth,” he wrote on Instagram. “I go to a church that opens their doors to absolutely everyone.”
