Earlier this week Kevin Smith had a heart attack and miraculously survived. Actor Chris Pratt told Kevin Smith he will be “praying his *ss off” for him and in turn was ripped by leftists.
Pratt took to Twitter to let Smith know he will be praying for him after his near-fatal heart attack happened on Monday. Pratt was quickly ripped by God-haters.
That’s cool and everything but Doctors and nurses save lives not prayer.

Great now I won’t enjoy your films as much knowing you’re a Jesus nut

“Guardians of the Galaxy” director James Gunn stepped up and became a public defender of Pratt.
So I just read Chris Pratt’s tweet to Kevin Smith saying he would pray for him & made the mistake of reading the comments, many of which go off on Chris for saying he’d pray. I think people misunderstand the backlash against “thoughts & prayers.” (thread)

Kevin Smith has recovered after the contributions of both doctors and the prayers of kind-hearted people. Smith made a Facebook live update and announced tha the has became a vegetarian after the incident. He also defended Chris Pratt for his kind words.
Per Daily Wire:
“Poor Chris Pratt, one of my favorite actors on the planet, f—ing put up a nice tweet, where he’s just like, ‘Hey man, I don’t know you that much but I love “Clerks” and I’m praying for you,’ and and apparently people were like, ‘F— your prayers’ and attacked him and s—,” Smith said.
“And number one, thanks to Chris Pratt, how sweet was that,” Smith continued. “Number two, please don’t fight over stuff like that. It’s a waste of time. Whether you’re religious or not, someone saying ‘I’ll pray for you,’ it’s good intentions.”
Ultimately, Kevin Smith got it right. Whether you believe in God or not, how does someone believing in God and offering a good-hearted prayer affect you? In the heart of religious people, prayer is a positive thing. Why can’t the left leave it at that? The “tolerant left.” Oh that’s right, they’re only tolerant if you agree with them.
