Chris Pratt Mocked for His Christianity Amid Release of New Marvel Film

Hollywood star Chris Pratt is drawing scorn from leftists on social media in the wake of the release of the first trailer of the Marvel Cinematic Universe flick Thor: Love and Thunder.

In the short clip, there is a funny moment after Star-Lord — played by Pratt — gives his team a pep talk, telling them that whenever they feel lost, all they need to do is "look into the eyes of the people that you love." At that point, Thor — played by Chris Hemsworth — stares awkwardly and intensely into Star-Lord's eyes.

Many on social media were quick to note the fact that Star-Lord, whose character name is Peter Quill, was depicted as bisexual in a 2020 installment of the Guardians of the Galaxy comic series, Entertainment Weekly reported.

Massive Russian Bombings Will Start This Week, Ukrainian Sources Tell Mike Evans

Sources inside the Ukrainian government have told Mike Evans, the founder of the Jerusalem Prayer Team, to expect a massive bombing from the Russian military within the next seven days. The predicted bombing is expected to target roads and cut off the ability to bring food in and get residents out.

As a result of the tip from two Ukrainian diplomats, Evans has flown to the Ukrainian border with 40 tons of food costing $200,000, and he's made a plan to both transport food to those who need it and help elderly Holocaust survivors in Ukraine escape the bombing.

Shortly before leaving, Evans appeared on my podcast (now also on YouTube) and emphasized the urgency of the situation by relating a story his son had told him about one Christian girl who came from a Ukrainian town that the Chechens (Russian allies) invaded. "They took everyone's passports, everyone's cell phone, raped the teenagers, began murdering the mothers and fathers [and] throwing them in mass graves." Evans continues with sadness, "She ran seven hours through the woods to escape the Chechens."
