The star included, “AND he just married in to a family that makes space for civil discourse and (just plain fact) INSISTS on service as the highest value.”

Gunn wrote, “I’ve spent hours & hours sharing my deepest truths with this man, as he has with me. Please stop assuming what he believes, politically or in any other way, because he’s a Christian.”
