Brad Pitt's Mom Pens Anti-Gay Letter
July 06, 2012
Brad Pitt has not only been a vocal supporter of Barack Obama throughout both of his presidential bids, but also a gay rights advocate. Brad previously claimed he and Angelina Jolie would only marry when everyone was able to, and starred in a staged reading of 8 – a play that used the Prop 8 trial transcripts to demonstrate why the political proposition was immoral.
But it appears those beliefs have only been formed since Brad, who was raised Southern Baptist, left his parent's Missouri house because his mother, Jane, has written an anti-gay, anti-Obama letter to her local paper after they ran a piece asking voters to reject Mitt Romney because of his Mormon faith. Her letter reads:
"I have given much thought to Richard Stoecker's letter ("Vote for Mormon against beliefs," June 15). I am also a Christian and differ with the Mormon religion.
But I think any Christian should spend much time in prayer before refusing to vote for a family man with high morals, business experience, who is against abortion, and shares Christian conviction concerning homosexuality just because he is a Mormon.
Any Christian who does not vote or writes in a name is casting a vote for Romney's opponent, Barack Hussein Obama — a man who sat in Jeremiah Wright's church for years, did not hold a public ceremony to mark the National Day of Prayer, and is a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage.
I hope all Christians give their vote prayerful consideration because voting is a sacred privilege and a serious responsibility.
Calls to Pitt's rep have not yet been returned, but Missouri's News-Leader has confirmed the letter was in fact written by Brad's mother.
