Ellen Page took to Twitter this weekend to address a pastor who sent her an anti-gay comment. Ellen didn’t say what the pastor had said to her, instead she tweeted her response.
It has been re-tweeted almost 9,000 times.

Page publicly came out of the closet in mid-February through an incredible and compelling speech at The Human Rights Campaign’s Time To Thrive conference. At the time, the actress told the crowd, “I’m here today because I am gay… and because maybe I can make a difference. To help others have an easier and more hopeful time. Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility.”
This summer, Page will reprise her role as the mutant Kitty Pryde in the next installment of the popular “X-Men” franchise, “X-Men: Days Of Future Past.”
Good for her! I think everyone (including the pastor) has the right to believe whatever he/she wants. But the second you start telling people they’re WRONG …. it gets awfully sticky for me.
