“Poor Chris Pratt, one of my favorite actors on the planet, fudgeing put up a nice tweet, saying, ‘Hey man, I don’t know you that much, but I love Clerks and I’m praying for you,’ and, apparently, some people were like, ‘fudge your prayers,’ and attacked him and sh-t. And then [Guardians of the Galaxy director] James Gunn had to jump in and be like, ‘Ain’t nothing wrong with praying for a person, man.’ Number one, oh my God, thank you to Chris Pratt. How sweet was that? Star-Lord praying for me.”
“But number two, yeah, please don’t fight over stuff like that. It’s a waste of time. Prayer, whether you’re religious or not, somebody saying, ‘I’ll pray for you,’ it’s good-intentioned, it’s very nice. Especially because it’s not like Chris Pratt was like, ‘Move over, I’m going to reach my hands over into his chest and save him, save fudgeing Silent Bob’s life myself.'”
Nothing wrong with the well-meaning sentiment, but he should have left it at: "I'm praying for you buddy". Instead he's peddling 'the healing power of prayer' which is proselytising of the worst kind and leads to the kind of thinking that can sometimes cost lives through inaction.
I like the guy as an actor, but Chris mate; keep the god-bothering to yourself.
he should have asked for the healing medicinal vibes generated by changing your facebook profile picture to a pic of Kevin Smith (for a minimum of 3 days or it doesn't work) if he really wanted to get him back on his feet
