Pratt took over his Instagram story to look at allegations that Hillsong's church, to which he belongs, discriminates against the LGBTQ community.
"It has recently been suggested that I belong to a church that" hates a certain group of people "and" is ignorant of anti-LGBTQ, "she wrote." Nothing can be further from the truth. I'm going to a church that opens its doors absolutely to everyone. "
Pratt further said that he was accepted with open hands, despite biblical scholarships, with members "graciously accompany me on my walk" and "offer love and support.
Pratt continued to say that although his church is important, he does not define him, and he is not an official spokesperson for Hillsong.
"My values determine who I am," he concluded. "We need less hatred in this world, not more. I am a man who believes that everyone has the right to love the one they want without the courts of their fellow men."
Despite Pratt's assertions that the Church welcomed everyone, Hillsong issued a statement in 2015 saying "We do not affirm the gay lifestyle" and claim that marriage is a marriage between a man and a woman.
