Since coming out as gay last month, Ellen Page has remained relatively silent on the issue of LGBT rights, with her statement saying more than enough for the time being.

The actress, however, couldn't help but respond to criticism from a pastor over the weekend, taking to Twitter and writing a response that has gone viral.

It's unknown exactly what the religious figure said about Page, but the former Juno star replied as follows:

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.

HA! Pretty good, huh?

Page publicly came out of the closet on Valentine’s Day via speech at The Human Rights Campaign's Time To Thrive conference in Las Vegas.

"I’m here today because I am gay... and because maybe I can make a difference," she said at the time. "To help others have an easier and more hopeful time. Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility."

Earlier today, meanwhile, Tyler Glenn (frontman for Neon Trees) also came out as gay. We salute them both.
