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:

Let's be real! Brad Pitt won't get married because marriage means nothing to him! He left his first marriage for a woman who had already had two prior marriages and a lesbian affair (obviosuly a choice). I do not agree with gay marriage and it has nothing to do with hate. The only hate that is being spread is by the liberals who think their opinions are the only ones the matter and harass any free thinker who doesn't share in their ignorant and immoral way of life. Marriage has always been a gender based union because man and woman were designed spiritually and physically for each other. No one is stopping gay people from loving who they want to love, after all civil unions do exist, but let's not forget why male and female were created in the first place.

Why is it that people continue to value the opinions of celebrities who not only lack perspective (due to outrageous income and daily media exposure) AND who are not educated. Brad Pitt did not even finish college, is he an expert on sexuality or family dynamics? No. Why would his thoughts on the matter register as important to any person?

Too bad Brad Pitt isn't gay. Then Angelina might still be on the market.

Like someone said before it wasn't about his looks or how many kids he has and he has a point....I am a Christian but I believe everyone should have equal rights and I have also seen many gay couples raise kids in a nurturing and loving environment some people just need to get over it and realize that you can't push your beliefs on other people because people are going to do what they want regardless.....I don't know what problem other people that commented have with Brad and Angelina but them adopting shouldn't be one of them...

I think this country is not yet ready for gay marriage, but it's getting closer. Probably in about 5 years or so. If you love someone who is gay all you want is for them to be happy with whoever they are and not forced to live a lie. I never thought much of him when he was with Aniston (or Paltrow), but he's gotten much more interesting since the Jolie hook-up. His acting has matured and he is picking better material. I also appreciate that he is NOT going the surgical, injectible filler route. It's nice to see a celebrity embracing the aging process, and not forever trying to stay "young".

The interview wasn't about how good looking he is!! I totally agree with him, I simply cannot understand people that disagree with gay marriage, I really juts don't get them. Try putting yourself in their shoes, you love someone and want to marry them but for reasons that are total bullshit society won't let you. Seriously, wtf is that about? Narrow minded people!!!

I've never thought Brad Pitt was good looking - he's just average. George Clooney's more my type! Gorgeous when he was younger, and aging quite nicely thank you :->
Personally I have no idea why he and his common-law baby collector are asked to give their opinion about anything. Tiresome twosome.

Brad Pitt

Our seven-year-old was searching the word 'weapons' on Google the other day and ended up on some white-supremacist site. I'm sure now we're on all kinds of watch lists.
