Actress Ellen Page, who came out gay last month, responded Saturday to a pastor who told her being gay is a belief.

The 26-year-old Page announced she's gay during a speech delivered at Time to THRIVE, an LGBT youth conference hosted by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) and held at Bally's Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“I am here today because I am gay,” the Juno star told the crowd. “And because maybe I can make a difference to help others have an easier and more hopeful time. Regardless, for me, I feel a personal obligation and a social responsibility.”

“I am tired of hiding and I am tired of lying by omission,” she added. “I suffered for years because I was scared to be out. My spirit suffered, my mental health suffered and my relationships suffered. And I'm standing here today, with all of you, on the other side of that pain.”

Page has said that response has been mostly supportive.

But in a tweet Saturday, Page responded to one of her detractors.

“2 da Pastor who wrote me – Being gay isn't a belief. My soul isn't struggling & I don't want arms of Heavenly Father around me. A girls arms? Yes,” she tweeted to her more than 877,000 followers.
