Hollywood has become overwhelmingly left-wing and secular.
Any expressions of faith are met with skepticism.
And liberals were furious when one director defended this Christian actor.
Hollywood superstar actor Chris Pratt is under constant attack from the left.
An informal Twitter poll among liberals deemed him Hollywood’s “worst Chris.”
Now liberals want him replaced as Star-Lord in the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise.
But director James Gunn immediately shot down that idea.
For what? 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.

The left’s antipathy toward Pratt is based on the perception that he is right-wing even though he is not overtly political.
But Pratt is a devout Christian who supports the Second Amendment, honors America, and he once wore a “Don’t Tread on Me” T-shirt.
He also declined to participate in a Marvel Cinematic Universe table read that served as a fundraiser for Joe Biden.
In other words, Pratt is not sufficiently “woke,” therefore he is an enemy.
And it’s not just random Twitter users and blue-checkmark journalists that go after him.
Eliott Page, who previously went by Ellen Page before transitioning, labeled Pratt a bigot because of the lie that his church banned gay people.
Page wrote, “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…Being anti LGBTQ is wrong, there aren’t two sides. The damage it causes is severe. Full stop. Sending love to all.”
Pratt responded to the criticism from Page and other leftists.
In an Instagram post, Pratt 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.”
Joe Rogan came to Pratt’s defense in a recent podcast interview.
Rogan explained, “He’s kind of outside the lines in terms of his ideology…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…and he like, you know, he likes to be a good person and they’re like ‘f*ck him!’”
Other celebrities have also come to Pratt’s defense, including his Marvel co-stars.
Sorry. Just finding out about this nonsense. @prattprattpratt is the best dude in the world. I’ve spent hours & hours sharing my deepest truths with this man, as he has with me. Please stop assuming what he believes, politically or in any other way, because he’s a Christian. https://t.co/XSIgU9WemX

Regardless of Pratt’s politics, everybody does not have to be a raging leftists, but progressives fail to understand that.
