Actor Chris Pratt Attacked for Sharing his Christian Faith.

Prayer and Faith are two difficult subjects to comprehend for many non-believers, this subject even further becomes more difficult to comprehend for those in Hollywood. The subject of Prayer and Faith has become so isolated from daily norms, especially in today’s culture, where prayer has taken on such a negative connotation especially when you have a lot of secular media putting on a powerful display of propaganda against the Christian faith. One prime example recently occurred when Joy Behar of the view likened the Christian faith to mental illness (in reference to VP Pence’s talks with Jesus).

Even more recently on twitter when Guardians of the Galaxy star, Chris Pratt, posted an encouraging message of prayer for actor/filmmaker Kevin Smith. Entertainment Weekly reports that after learning Smith had been hospitalized following a massive heart attack, Pratt tweeted his encouragement by writing,

Kevin we don’t know each other too good but I have loved you since Clerks and I’m praying my a** off for you cause I believe in the healing power of prayer. Can you please pray with me people!?” and followed it on with:

Though the tweet was initially well-received, it soon began to gain a momentum of backlash from other users who felt “thoughts and prayers” were irrelevant. With some twitters responding;

Prayer does nothing.” Wrote one critic, “Only doctors and nurses and how healthy he is will save Smith. Sending him encouragement might boost his mood and aid in the healing process.

While others may go low and respond with anger or sarcasm, Pratt didn’t respond to the backlash, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn leapt to his defence and addressed Pratt’s critics by chiming in,

So I just read Chris Pratt’s tweet to Kevin Smith saying he would pray for him & made the mistake of reading the comments, many of which go off on Chris for saying he’d pray. I think people misunderstand the backlash against ‘thoughts & prayers,’” Gunn stated. “There is nothing wrong with sending someone positive thoughts & prayers. But when this is coupled with inaction when action will benefit the situation, it’s empty.

I’m not tweeting this to defend Chris – he’s a big boy and can take care of himself, but for me, personally, prayer and meditation are great boons to my life and help me navigate my way through this world, and I don’t want to dissuade others who find those things useful.

We pray for Chris to remain strong in the Lord and to not allow these types of attacks to deter him from his Godly assignment, in a world full of ungodliness.
