'Chris Pratt avoiding legitimate questions about anti-LGBTQ history of his church' & other Tue midday news briefs

Chris Pratt need not avoid the anti-LGBTQ history of his church.

Chris Pratt Responds To Ellen Page’s Claim His Church Is ‘Infamously Anti-LGBTQ’ - I hate to be involved in this but I smell how the religious right are going attempt to use this in order to make the LGBTQ community seem like bullies. Pratt sidestepped several points about his church and I be DAMNED if the LGBTQ community will be looked at as bullies because we are making legitimate call outs, like such: 

Chris Pratt attends an anti-gay church with a history of child molestation and ex-gay therapy  
Is Hillsong Church anti-LGBT? What you need to know about its views 
Inside Hillsong, the Church of Choice for Justin Bieber and Kevin Durant  
Sex Abuse & Gay Conversion Therapy: The Dark Past of Justin Bieber’s Megachurch Hillsong

NYC Lawmaker Says Chamber Controlled By ‘Homosexual Community,’ Won’t Apologize - This is what is wrong with the media. Framing the story as if his ignorance is somehow courageous. We don't need the jerk to apologize. Call him out with the facts. Stop asking an asshole not to be an asshole.

West Virginia lawmaker says there’s no reason to punish him for comparing LGBTQ community to KKK - Second verse same as the first. Stop demanding apologies. To hell with their apologies. Call out their words. 

This Republican told LGBTQ youth that homosexuality is equal to bestiality & pedophilia - A part of a larger problem. "Ignore them" we are told by some people. You can't ignore ignorant people who have the power to make policy which will affect your life.
