Ellen Page does not want help from a religious leader concerned about her homosexuality.

Over the weekend, the actress fired back at the unidentified pastor, tweeting, “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,” she added.

Page came out of the closet last month in a dramatic speech that earned her praise throughout Hollywood.

At the time, she called her decision a “personal obligation and a social responsibility,” noting, “maybe I can make a difference to help others have an easier and more hopeful time.”

Page is featured in the new X-Men: Days of Future Past trailer released on Monday.
