Outspoken Christian and Hollywood actor Chris Pratt announced he is the driving force behind the launch of a new patriotic production company known as Indivisible Productions.
Pratt shared the news in an Instagram post on Tuesday, giving fans a sneak peak of the new office space decorated with his movie and television memorabilia.
The 40-year-old actor can be heard singing and humming the theme songs from various movies and TV shows show he has been featured in as he circles the office space and says at the end, “Get ready.”
Pratt made his American pride crystal clear, quoting the Pledge of Allegiance in his Instagram announcement.
“A musical sneak peak at the walls inside my office,” Pratt wrote in the post, which has garnered more than 800,000 likes and 3.7 million views. “So grateful for each step of this wonderful journey.
“I’ve started a company. Indivisible Productions One nation Under God Indivisible,” he added. “Our mission statement is to create entertaining content, focusing on themes which will help to bridge the growing divide in our country and world. You know, make the world a better place. No biggie, you’re welcome, but it’s whatever.”

The “Guardians of the Galaxy” star did not release any further information regarding exactly what types of projects the company will be producing.
Pratt did, however, reveal on Twitter how the Pledge of Allegiance came to inspire his company.
“Hearing the pledge of allegiance at my kid’s cub scout meeting the name hit me. INDIVISIBLE ‘One nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all,'” he wrote.
“It’s the perfect name for a company intent on creating content which aims to sew the growing divide in this country.”

In the past, the Hollywood star has been criticized for his Christian beliefs. But that hasn’t stopped him continuing to share his values.
Page took to Twitter and attacked Pratt due to the church he attends:
Oh. K. Um. But his church is infamously anti lgbtq so maybe address that too? https://t.co/meg8m69FeF

If you are a famous actor and you belong to an organization that hates a certain group of people, don’t be surprised if someone simply wonders why it’s not addressed. Being anti LGBTQ is wrong, there aren’t two sides. The damage it causes is severe. Full stop. Sending love to all

Pratt responded to Page’s criticisms in an Instagram story.
“It has recently been suggested that I belong to a church which hates a certain group of people and is ‘infamously anti-LGBTQ.’ Nothing could be further from the truth. I go to a church that opens their doors to absolutely everyone,” he said.
“Despite what the Bible says about my divorce, my church community was there for me every step of the way, never judging, just gracefully accompanying me on my walk. They helped me tremendously offering their love and support. It is what I have seen them do for others on countless occasions regardless of sexual orientation, race, or gender.”
He went on to say, “We need less hate in this world, not more.”

Pratt has proven time and time again that he is the man for the job after enduring constant hatred for his love for Jesus, and always responding with compassion and class.
In 2016, a fan reached out to Pratt over Twitter asking for prayer for his 4-year-old son, Sam, who was battling brain cancer.

Pratt quickly responded with a reassurance that the power of prayer is real, saying it saved his own son, who was born nine weeks premature.
The power of prayer saved my son. This boy Sam needs a miracle. Say a prayer for Sam. Even if you never have b4.Try. https://t.co/sGYv2tcrMX

Lord I pray for Sam. May you put your healing hand on him father. May his family find grace in this difficult time. https://t.co/MfkF5Lsi5v

Throughout whatever controversies he has had to deal with, Pratt has always responded with class and dignity. By all indications, that bodes well for his new company.
