Brad Pitt's Mom Writes Surprising Anti-Gay, Pro-Romney Letter

Brad Pitt's Mom Writes Surprising Anti-Gay, Pro-Romney Letter

07/06/2012

Actor Brad Pitt, one of Hollywood's most vociferous supporters of President Barack Obama and a well-documented supporter of marriage equality, clearly does not share the political views of his mother, Jane Pitt. In a recent letter, Jane Pitt expressed her support of Obama's opponent Mitt Romney, calling on her fellow church-goers to vote for the Republican presidential candidate.

"[A]ny 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," Jane Pitt wrote in Missouri's Springfield News-Leader.

But Brad Pitt's mom did not stop at a political endorsement of Romney; she criticized Obama for his socially progressive ideas, which are, in her view, anti-Christian. "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," she wrote.
