Jane Pitt, Brad Pitt's Mom, Writes Anti-Gay, Pro-Mitt Romney Editorial

by at . Comments

Brad Pitt has been a vocal advocate for gay rights, so it came as a bit of a surprise to learn that his mom write an editorial in her local Missouri newspaper that supports presidential candidate Mitt Romney's conservative views on homosexuality.

Springfield's News-Leader confirms that the author is Brad's mom.

Jane Pitt's letter was primarily penned to express support for Romney, in response to a previous News-Leader editorial urging readers to shun the Republican's bid to unseat President Barack Obama because of his Mormon beliefs.

In her response, which was published on Tuesday, she wrote:

"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 Mormon."

"Anyone 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 and did not hold a public ceremony to mark the National Day of Prayer."

Obama, she writes, is "a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage. I hope all Christians give their vote prayerful consideration because voting is a sacred privilege and a serious responsibility."

It was more pro-Romney and anti-Obama than anti-gay, but nevertheless, Jane Pitt makes her views on same-sex marriage and abortion clear.

In any case, it's a total 180 from the views shared by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, who have been ardent proponents of gay marriage for years.

Last year, following the passage of marriage-equality laws in New York, Brad said, "No state should decide who can marry and who cannot."

"Thanks to the tireless work of so many, someday soon this discrimination will end and every American will be able to enjoy their equal right."

Brad and Jane Pitt clearly both have strong opinions on the subject, and both have a right to those opinions. With whom do you agree?

Presidential election 2012:


I thought God loved ALL people. Apparently, Jane thinks otherwse. As to voting for Romney--well if I were extremely wealthy, didn't care about the average citizen, didn't pay my fair share of taxes then I would vote for him.


Karen i agree! Women's rights and privileges have been fought too hard for! Jane is just a little old fashioned for my taste!!


Brad Pitt is not a weak, spineless jerk. He has followed a different path..one that helped the hurricane victims of New Orleans. I love Brad Pitt.....


Teachers get paid enough..besides if paid too much money..they'll be out shopping and not grading papers. Police lay their lives on the line, so deserve more and maybe firemen.


Ted Nugent is an idiot...Jane Pitt is probably not. Jerry, your one sick s.o.b.!!


Wilson, country people don't need to understand your world. Cause when the nuclear bomb hits..gaydom will be a thing of the past. It simply won't be tolerated! Jane Pitt is entitled to her opinion..and though i currently live in the countryside..i will vote Obama!! And Tim your a sick s.o.b.! Stores used to be closed on Sunday's, in the 1960's. i remember my parents discussing whether they should shop on Sunday's, when more and more started staying open!! This was in the state of KY..


Khloe, you called Jane Pitt a christian woman, lol!! A real christian woman will never talk that way. She sounds more like she is from a cult, perhaps Scientology, anyone that's is christian won't talk that way. Same kind of talk such as black are criminals, fat people are lazy, beautiful people are dummies, poor people are loser etc. People need to respect others but they first need to love themselves to get there. Society is going back instead of forward. Is so sad to see so much hate in others because they look different or fall in love with same gender.


Just how sorry can gays be. you attack a christian woman who has a right of freedom of speech. you piece of shit bastards. now the tweeting that's going on with threatening her. you people deserve no rights and I personally never ever given another gay the benifits of doubt. you are a sorry disgusting sick part of society. this episode will work against you I can promise that. all you shits do is create drama.


@Wilson: Threatened much? We're here Wilson. We'll remain here. We ain't goin' nowhere. And we ain't votin' for Obama. Deal with it! Only curiosity I have at present is how a loser like you can look yourself in the mirror each morning. If I'm lucky, I may just someday figure it out sometime soon!


Amazing Jane Pitt is talking bad and down about gays! Does she knows Angelina Jolie had sex with many women and confessed in a television interview with Barbara Walters that she was a lesbian and did many drugs. So hello!! Jane Pitt should it never gave the bless to her son marriage with Angelina if she has a very bad opinion about gay people.
