Dave Bautista slams Catholic bishop who urged to boycott Pride events

Dave Bautista is former WWE star

Former wrestler turned actor Dave Bautista is back with the perfect response to a Catholic priest urging to boycott Pride.

An all-time LGBTI ally, Bautista has weighed in on the conversation about being Catholic and supporting LGBTI rights.

The Guardians Of The Galaxy actor tweeted in response to a statement by Bishop Thomas Tobin. Tobin had urged Catholics not to support LGBTI events such as Pride parades.

‘A reminder that Catholics should not support or attend LGBTQ “Pride Month” events held in June. They promote a culture and encourage activities that are contrary to Catholic faith and morals. They are especially harmful for children,’ Tobin tweeted.

‘You don’t speak for most Catholics’

Dave Bautista slammed Tobin in a retweet.

‘My mom’s a lesbian. I think I turned out ok,’ he wrote.

‘And the activities she chooses is to help the homeless and people suffering from mental illness. I admit I’m not perfect but at least I was never a judgmental hypocrite! I’m sure you don’t speak for most Catholics. Have a nice day,’ he also added, together with a middle-finger emoji.

Dave Bautista is an ally

What We Do In The Shadows actor Harvey Guillen interacted with Bautista.

Openly gay Guillen thanked the former wrestler for his support.

‘Thank YOU Harvey! No love for bigots from this dude!’ Bautista replied.

‘You’re so F’n good in @theshadowsfx btw!! Congrats on a kickass season. Keep killing it and we’ll cut a rug again at one wrap party or another! Safe journeys brother.’
