Brad Pitt’s mom writes letter to local paper condemning Christians who won’t vote Romney

The world may not be familiar with Jane Pitt, a resident of Springfield, Mo., but it is most certainly familiar with her famous son: the one and only Brad Pitt.

Now we know all about her political views than we ever bargained for, after she penned a July 3 letter-to-the-editor in the local Springfield News-Leader, which largely differ from her son’s liberal views.

Jane’s letter was in response to a June opinion piece, in which a Springfield-News columnist wrote that he would rather note vote or write in Jesus’ name on the ballot than vote for Romney because he is a Mormon; to which Jane replied:

…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.

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.

Christians, take note: If you don’t vote for Romney, then you are in favor of killing unborn babies and allowing two men or two women to marry each other — this according to Brad Pitt’s mom.

The actor, on the other hand, has been extremely vocal in his support for Obama and legalizing same-sex marriage. He and his longtime partner, Angelina Jolie, even once said that they would not marry until all couples were legally allowed to wed.

The pair have since backtracked on that statement, and are engaged to be married reportedly sometime this year.
