Considering their overwhelming support for gay marriage and President Barack Obama, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt probably won’t be too happy about this story. The Springfield News-Leader, a newspaper in Springfield, Missouri, has confirmed that an anti-Obama, anti-gay marriage letter that urges Christians to vote for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, was penned by Pitt’s mother, Jane Pitt.
In her note, Pitt responded to another writer’s post that was critical of Romney and Mormonism. In her brief letter, she claimed that she’s a Christian and she urged other believers to strongly consider voting for the GOP candidate, despite potential ideological differences concerning his theology.
“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,” she wrote.
But the letter went beyond merely supporting Romney. Pitt also spent some time explaining her reasons for opposing President Barack Obama’s re-election campaign.
“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,” Pitt continued.
She went on to, again, urge Christians to pray about their vote, calling the ability to choose a candidate in a democracy a “sacred privilege and a serious responsibility.”
Initially, the newspaper included an editor’s note that denied that the writer was the mother of the famed actor. But, later, a new note was posted that proclaims that the paper confirmed this fact after all. It reads, ”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.”
Brad Pitt, who once claimed that he and Jolie would refrain from marrying until gay matrimonies are legalized across the U.S., clearly disagrees with his mother’s take on homosexuality.
Pitt and Jolie announced their engagement in April following a seven-year relationship and six children. So far, they haven’t commented on the newspaper article in question.
