“Imagine the church used its power or influence to get our government to do right by its people. Instead, the church (mostly) uses their position to only advance itself and agenda shame.”

According to the actress, no one should expect genuine care of the people from the church anymore because they have deviated from their core mandate.

She added that “I would have respected the churches position a lot more if they kept the same energy. But I have reiterated many times that a lot of religious bodies are not for the people, many unfortunately just use religion to advance their own agenda.”
