Brad Pitt’s mother, Jane Pitt, has written a letter to Missouri’s News-Leader newspaper denouncing same-sex marriage and encouraging Christians to vote for Mitt Romney. After the newspaper first denied any connection of the letter writer to her famous son, it issued a correction:

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.”
“I’ve said that we would not be getting married until everyone in this country had the right to get married.”
If rumors are true, they are indeed engaged, but Pitt has backed off of the original time period the couple had planned for their nuptials.
Jane Pitt is a Mom who does not fear Hollywood, and isn’t worried about her seat at the Oscars. Bless her for knowing that her voice is every bit as important as her son’s.
