Ellen Page responded to an anti-gay pastor on Twitter this weekend and her comment is being met with much applause from her fans and supporters. On March 24, Huffington Post reported that Page received a message from a pastor about her sexuality and while that message was not made public, Page used a very public forum to post her response.

"2 da Pastor who wrote me- Being gay isn't a belief. My soul isnt struggling & I don't want arms of Heavenly Father around me.A girls arms? Yes (sic)," Page tweeted. Over 18,000 people "favorited" the tweet and almost 10,000 "retweeted" it.

Ellen Page's anti-gay pastor response also received several comments and the amount of support that she received is pretty incredible. Obviously Page has received a lot of support since she came out in February but there will always be people who are going to voice their opinions whether they agree or disagree with a person's decisions. Page evidently felt the need to respond to this particular message and many people respect that.

"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," Page said during her speech at the Human Rights Campaign's Time To Thrive conference earlier this year. Her tweet supports her decision to help others cope with negativity in response to sexual orientation.

So ... Ellen Page vs. anti-gay pastor... there wasn't any competition to begin with, was there?
