Brad Pitt’s mum pens an anti-Obama, anti-gay op-ed

2012-07-06 14:41

Brad Pitt’s mother, Jane Pitt, has Christian views on abortion and gay marriage.

The showbiz matriarch – whose son Brad is one of the most vocal supporters of gay rights in Hollywood – has written a letter to her local newspaper, the News-Leader in Springfield, Missouri, urging people to vote for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, due to him being a “family man with high morals”.

She also hits out at US President Barack Obama because he supports the “killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage”.

She wrote: “I am ... 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.”

Brad – who is engaged to Angelina Jolie – has previously taken part in a play about gay rights with George Clooney and hinted he would not marry the actress until all Americans, including homosexuals, have the right to wed.
