Brad Pitt’s Mom Pens Anti-Gay, Anti-Obama Letter to Local Newspaper

An anti-gay letter urging Christians to vote for Mitt Romney that was printed today in The Springfield News-Leader has been confirmed by the newspaper as having been penned by Jane Pitt, mother of Brad Pitt.

The verification comes amid some confusion, as the Missouri newspaper first printed an editor’s note denying any relation between the letter writer and movie star. That was later replaced with a second editor’s note, reading, “To clear up earlier confusion, the News-Leader has verified the letter writer is the mother of actor Brad Pitt and local businessman Doug Pitt.”

The letter — itself a response to another opinion piece in the newspaper justifying Christians’ rights to refuse to vote for Romney because he is a Mormon — identifies Mrs. Pitt as “a Christian [who differs] with the Mormon religion.”

But, Pitt continues, “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.”

Pitt goes on to write that “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.”

    Well, I guess Brad’s mom believe’s in God, what happen to him? Or maybe people in hollywood are too scared of there peers tp say because they are soooo concerned about what people think of them..

  • A vote for Dr. Ron Paul is a vote for freedom. Any other vote is for the death of our Republic. The only Christian in the presidential race is Dr. Paul. Peace,

      Barbara, I fall into the category of being a Christian, but
      though Dr. Paul may be a strong Constitutionalist, which I applaud, I think
      that his other policies are where he misses the boat. Just to name a couple of things; I don’t
      believe that Dr. Paul’s policy on illegal immigration is one that will help the
      American people enough, after all the damage that Obama has done. I believe Romney’s policy is better.

      I can’t help but to think of Dr. Paul as being somewhat of a
      wacko, because of his policy on legalizing marijuana. Will his next move be to legalize meth? That too would cut down on the rate of crime,
      and our government could tax it!

      I’m sure that Dr. Paul’s policies would be much more
      acceptable than the ones we have endured for the last three years, but they
      still scare me. In 2008, I was right
      about Obama, and I think I’m right about this vote too. Dr. Paul may be a Christian, but I’d rather
      take a chance on someone who is a Mormon, because his other policies are more in
      line with my own.
