Sexy do-gooder Brad Pitt has been outspoken on a variety of progressive causes, from Darfur to the environment, but it looks like he and his mom part ways on the issue of gay rights.
On Tuesday Jane Pitt, or someone with her name, penned an anti-gay editorial in the Springfield News Leader. (Brad grew up in the Missouri town and Jane still lives there.)
Under “Reader’s Letters,” Mrs. Pitt responded to a piece written by another reader who claimed Christians who disagree with Mitt Romney and Mormonism should have their views respected.
In her op-ed Pitt wrote:
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.
Wow, don’t hold back, Jane!
Readers of gossip rags shouldn’t be surprised by Mama Pitt’s bigoted ways. The National Enquirer reported last year that Jane was fed up with goddess-in-law Angelina Jolie allowing Shiloh to dress like a tomboy.
