After actress Ellen Page called his church "infamously anti-LGBTQ", Chris Pratt has now responded saying "nothing could be further from the truth".
Last week, Pratt spoke to Stephen Colbert about his church on The Late Show, sharing that he was inspired by his pastor to complete a 21-day Daniel Fast.
Page, who is openly gay, retweeted a story about the chatshow appearance writing: "Oh. K. Um. But his church is infamously anti lgbtq so maybe address that too?"

She later added: "If you are a famous actor and you belong to an organization that hates a certain group of people, don't be surprised if someone simply wonders why it's not addressed."
Pratt has now responded to the accusation in an Instagram story.
He wrote: "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.
"I go to a church that opens their doors to absolutely everyone."
He went on to refer to his divorce from Anna Faris, writing: "Despite what the bible says about divorce my church community was there for me every step of the way, never judging, just gracefully accompanying me on my walk. They helped me tremendously offering love and support.
"It is what I have seen them do for others on countless occasions, regardless of sexual orientation, race or gender.
"My faith is important to me but no church defines me or my life and I am not a spokesman for any church or any group of people. My values define who I am.
"We need less hate in this world, not more. I am a man who believes that everyone is entitled to love who they want free from the judgment of their fellow man."
He ended the lengthy post by concluding: "Jesus said, 'I give you a new command, love one another'."
Pratt, who is currently starring in The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part, announced his engagement to Katherine Schwarzenegger in January.
