Brad Pitt Vehemently Defends Gay Marriage

by at . Comments

Whether you still hate Brad Pitt for breaking Jennifer Aniston's heart, or whether you fantasize about making sweet love to him every night, you've gotta admire the actor for speaking his mind.

In the latest issue of Parade, the topic is gay marriage - and Pitt is the anti-Carrie Prejean. He sincerely cannot comprehend why any human being would deny another human being the right to marry the person they love.

It's hard point to argue against. Here are excerpts from Pitt's interview with the magazine:

On gay marriage opponents: "They say gay marriage ruins families and hurts kids. Well, I’ve had the privilege of seeing my gay friends being parents and watching their kids grow up in a loving environment."

On Proposition 8: "I have no understanding of that kind of hatred. Maybe it’s fear of difference or of the unknown. If you feel belittled, maybe you need someone else to belittle to feel powerful...

You’ve got religion telling you what to think about homosexuality, about marriage. They say homosexuality is a choice, a lifestyle, something you can be cured of, and that isn’t true. But if you’re tucked away and have no friends who are gay, you’ll believe what the preachers say. Just think of it in terms of being in love: how would you feel if someone told you that you couldn’t be with the person you loved?”

Agree or disagree with Pitt - and please leave a comment, sharing your view - it's hard not to drool over the star. Click on the photos below and see if you can resist doing so:
