REFRESHING: Chris Pratt Talks Importance of Faith, Family in Hollywood
With Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 coming to theaters soon, Chris Pratt has been making quite a few public appearances. Each of which manages to be more refreshing than the last (see Chris Pratt: 'Hollywood is Out of Touch with Blue Collar Americans.'). In case you haven't noticed, we here at LwC shamelessly identify as fanboys of Chris Pratt. Just peep the ole archive for plenty of Prattness. Our preferred pronouns are "Chris's favorite friends" and we demand to be referred to as such for the remainder of this article. #Equality
Chris recently received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame for his work in recent blockbuster films. When he made an appearance in Hollywood to accept the star, he spoke from the heart about what it meant to him. Listen below...
Refreshing: Unlike most Hollywood stars, Chris Pratt is not scared to talk about his family and Christian faith. https://t.co/oRRBBs0MBz— MRCTV (@MRCTV)1493736824.0
To be fair, most of Hollywood has given the tired old "thank you to my friends, family, dog, and God" acceptance speech time and time again. But Chris Pratt has made it a consistent point to put his faith at the forefront of his public appearances (see Chris Pratt Classes Up the Internet, Uses Instagram to Express His Faith and Chris Pratt Opens Up About Conversion to Christianity. To Much Liberal Disbelief...). It's clear what he values: God, his family, and a decadent assortment of freshly hunted meats.
It comes as a major refresher when contrasted with, say, the lineup of flaming celebrity liberals who constantly lecture America about what our values should be. Here we have a simple man sharing his faith and giving glory to God when the opportunity arises. Whereas various other Hollywood skidmarks are more interested in forcing the rest of America to conform to their political agenda, and alienate us when we don't. Watch Dumbass Celebrity Has-Beens DEMAND Electoral College Blocks Trump. And some celebrities can't wait to mock teen girls who survived cancer, ala "pro-woman" Buffy the Vampire Slayer creator Joss Whedon.
So thanks, Chris. This endearing speech is a nice change of pace from what typically crawls its way from the bowels of Hollywood...
