Brad Pitt's Mom Is Just Like Every Mom Ever, As It Turns Out

07.06.12 12 Comments

This week has been filled with news concerning Brad Pitt’s family, namely Brad’s genetically challenged brother Doug, and gay people, specifically gay people like Anderson Cooper and Frank Ocean coming out of the closet. Now this story combines both the family of Pitt — a raving Hollywood liberal — and gay people. Yeeeeaaaaa!

Well, actually, no — not a lot to cheer about here.

Reports the Hollywood Reporter:

An anti-gay letter urging Christians to vote for Mitt Romney that was printed today in The Springfield News-Leader has been confirmed by the newspaper as having been penned by Jane Pitt, mother of Brad Pitt.

The verification comes amid some confusion, as the Missouri newspaper first printed an editor’s note denying any relation between the letter writer and movie star. That was later replaced with a second editor’s note, reading, “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.”

Here’s what she wrote that has people in a huff…

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.

I hope all Christians give their vote prayerful consideration because voting is a sacred privilege and a serious responsibility.

Parents: embarrassing the sh*t out of their children since the beginning of time.
