Too Bad Brad Pitt is Not the Christian His Mom is
The Christian Diarist ^ | July 7, 2012 | JP

Posted on 07/07/2012 9:58:31 AM PDT by CHRISTIAN DIARIST

Jane Pitt sent her son Brad, the actor, a message yesterday: She doesn’t like his liberal politics. She doesn’t like his Hollywood values.

Mama Pitt, a Christian, didn’t express her disapproval directly.

She did so, indirectly (and cleverly, I think), in a letter to her hometown newspaper, the Springfield, Missouri News-Leader, responding to the suggestion of another reader that Christians should not vote for Mitt Romney because of his Mormon faith.

“I think any Christian should spend much time in prayer,” Mama Pitt urged, “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.”

She added, “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.”

Jane Pitt’s letter had to resonate with her prodigal son Brad.

It says – indirectly – that he is not a Christian. That he has cast his lot with the ungodly occupant of the White House. That he condones the mass murder of the pre-born. And that he rejects the Word of God, which declares homosexuality an abomination.

The actor may think his liberal politics, his Hollywoodvalues are mitigated by his good works.

Indeed, he and his domestic partner, actress Angelina Jolie, have donated money to organizations providing humanitarian support to people affected by the crisis inDarfur.

He is a co-founder of Not On Our Watch, a Hollywood organization that focuses global attention on “mass atrocities,” excluding, of course, abortion.

And he founded the Make it Right Foundation, which built affordable, environmentally “sustainable” new homes in New Orleans following Hurricane Katrina.

But as Jane Pitt would advise her son, all his seeming righteousness is like filthy rags in the eyes of God.

For by grace we are saved, through faith. It is the gift of God, not of works.

Gutsy woman, that Mrs. Pitt. Good for her!

Brad allowed Hollywood to woo him into its pit.

Romney gave $3 million to charity just last year. In keeping with the Mormon faith he gives at least ten percent of income every year.

We are “to feed the hungry, to clothe the naked, to provide for the widow, to dry up the tear of the orphan, to comfort the afflicted, whether in this church, or in any other, or in no church at all…”
Joseph Smith, “Times and Seasons,” March 15, 1842

Perhaps Pitt just makes more of a show of what he does while Romney does his charity quietly.

(Not defending him. I don’t know his record in that regard.)

My cuz used to go to U of Mizzou and when the 2004 election almost ended, Pitt went back to Mizzou to show his “documentary” about Kerry and obviously the girls went nuts.

Once he got out of the auditorium, the guys were jeering him calling him “fag” or “traitor”.

3“But when you give to the poor, do not let your left hand know what your right hand is doing, 4so that your giving will be in secret; and your Father who sees what is done in secret will reward you. (Matthew 6:3-4)

Mr. Romney probably gave more $$$ last month than Obama, Biden and Bill Clinton gave to charities in the last five years combined, Mitt just doesn't boast about what he gives.

Mitt Romney has built plenty. Did you do ANY research prior to making your claims?

Correction

Romney gave $3 million to the Mormon corporation last year

That business is busy building multimillion deollar ugly religious buildings and malls and tourist resorts for the rich

but has never built one hospital or soup kitchen...

The hospitals are built by Christians...

The soup kitchens in the Mecca of the Mormons, Salt Lake City, are built and run and paid for by the Christians...

During Katrina WalMart and the Christians fed and housed the victims...

The Mormons in their yellow TShirts turned up 10 days later and long after FEMA when the danger and the need was all over...

Same in Haiti ...

Same during the tornadoes in April last year...

There was neither hair nor hide of any Mormons where there was no TV cameras...

Nobody remembers seeing them in TN where we lost several peoiple and many houses were destroyed...

Again WalMart Food, water, generators, clothes) and the Christians...the Church of God (always there), the Baptists (thank you Baptists for all the long hours of help), the Catholics (thank you sweet Catholics)

Not a yellow shirt to be seen...

Willard needs to start helping other people...

The LORD Jesus Christ had things to say about selfish jerks like Willard...

He also had things to say about people who loved his neighbors and helped “the least of these” like Brad Pitt...

as the Mormons are fond of saying “Whos the one acting like a Christian” ???

Not that it's any of our dammed business what other people do with their own money, earned or inherited, see Yahoo News.

In pertinent part, emphases added:

"In 2010, the largest beneficiaries of the Tyler Charitable Foundation included the Mormon Church ($145,000), the Friends of George W. Bush Library ($100,000), and the Center for Treatment of Pediatric MS ($75,000). However, the foundation also made contributions to organizations including the US Equestrian Team Foundation ($10,000), Harvard Business School ($10,000), and Homes for Our Troops ($20,000).

"In past years, some of Romney’s contributions have gone to conservative groups such as the Heritage Foundation, the Becket Fund (for religious rights legal aid), and the Federalist Society, which seeks reform of the current legal system. In 2007, he wrote a check to Citizens for Limited Taxation, a Marblehead, Mass., organization that strives to limit taxes and the size of government."

Of course, I recognize that FR's official policy is to ensure that Romney is defeated in November. See tag.

_________________________________________

Of course he does...

to the Mormon corporation...to one man Tommy Monson who owns the business...

to build multimillion dollar ugly religious buildings and malls and tourist resorts for the rich

but never one hospital or soup kitchen...

Wee Willie Mitty doesnt get his temple recommend renewed if he doesnt pay his annual club dues...

He needs to earn that tr to go to the temple to participate in pagen Freemanson rituals in order to go to the mormon afterlife where he will become a god like the mormon juesus did and have his own planet and lots of extra wives and mhave sex forever and make lots of spirit babies to worship him forever...

BTW $3 MILLION means he got $30 MILLION last year...

In 2008 he had $250 MILLION...

Its quite possible he now has at least $350 MILLION..

Do you really thing he sacrificed that 1/100 he invested in the mormon company last year ???

I doubt if he missed it especially when he gets so much back..

Block voting by the Mormonbs ...95%
He is almost at the top of the corporate ladder in Mormonism..
all the perks of a Mormon CEO...they dont live like monks

etc...

THe LORD Jesus Christ said that the woman with the 2 mites gave more than the greedy selfish Willard Romney...

___________________________________________________

Kid the Mormon company has $500 BILLION

So a charity is adding to the ill gotton gains of the Mormons...

$145,000 to a multi BILLION company ???

and ONLY $20,000 for homes for the troops ???

That doesnt even build ONE house...

Get realistic...

Even Jimmy carter does better than that...

The mormons spent MILLIONS on fancy expensive apartments at City Creek mall next the the SLC religious building for their special members and cant even sell them ...

BTW which one of those fancy “charities” feed and clothe the poor ???

I didnt notice Catholic Charities or Habitat for Humanity among the prestigious list...

So Willie also gives to the Mormon religion through his “donations” to “other” charities...

Brad Pitt still acts more like a Christian than Willie Mitty...

This is pure religion, and undefiled before God, to care for the orphaned and widows in their need. James 1:27

Sounds like Brad Pitt has more fo a chance of being among the sheep on the right of the LORD Jesus Christ than Willard Romney...

after all Brad helps the poor and does it to the least of these while Willie just adds to the coffers of rich men...

A vote for Romney negates some other voter’s ballot for Obama.

He also had things to say about casting the first stone, judging others, and loving your enemies...but don’t let that knock you off your spiritual high horse.
