Posted on 07/07/2012 7:59:25 AM PDT by IbJensen
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."
The letter -- itself a response to another opinion piece in the newspaper justifying Christians' rights to refuse to vote for Romney because he is a Mormon -- identifies Mrs. Pitt as "a Christian [who differs] with the Mormon religion."
But, Pitt continues, "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."
Pitt goes on to write that "any Christian who does not vote or writes in a name is casting a vote for Romneys opponent, Barack Hussein Obama a man who sat in Jeremiah Wrights 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."
Along with Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt has long been an outspoken champion of gay rights. Pitt once told Ellen DeGeneres, "Ive said that we would not be getting married until everyone in this country had the right to get married." The two nevertheless announced their engagement in April, after seven years and six children together.
In January, Pitt said of his mother in a cover profile in The Hollywood Reporter, "She's very, very loving -- very open, genuine, and it's hilarious because she always gets painted in the tabloids as a she-devil. There's not an ounce of malice in her. She wants everyone to be happy."
In the same story, the Moneyball star revealed his own support of Obama in the upcoming presidential election.
Why does the headline call the letter anti-gay?
It is not necessarily anti-gay to oppose gay hook-ups being called marriage. It is just a matter of making reasonable distinctions, which happen to be honored in millennia of tradition, and in virtually all cultures (and certainly all the viable and important ones).
The matter of homosexuality is complicated. It is also personal, and hardly a thing which can be solved by a simple-minded political formula. The left is simply using this issue as another means to corral a demographic into their herd.
Ordinary, polite people with no hang-ups themselves can usually co-exist with all sorts of individuals. Gays are little threat to me, as long as they are not aggressive, and don’t make me watch.
My wife and I are very conservative, yet we have gay friends. We have many friends with whom we do not agree on all matters. No problem. We do not need the government or some identity-movement to tell us how to live.
That’s a great picture. I live for this stuff. Hollyweird clashing with reality - LOL!
Well: The mother doesn’t have to work with all the perverts ,her son has to.
Hollyweird has been filled with perverts for 75 year at least.
It looks like that apple (Brad) fell a LONG way from the tree!
My guess is that she prays daily for her son. ;-/
Good for Mrs. Pitt.
So when are the homosexualist and abortion enthusiasts going to demand Brad Pitt be blacklisted in Hollywood?
How uncool. Angie must make her cringe with the evil
They should not vote for him because of his past record.
She says of Romney "is against abortion, and shares Christian conviction concerning homosexuality"
Actually, what she says of Obama is true of Romney also:
"(Obama ) is a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage."
So does Romney, althogh he goes back and forth on those issues as necessary to fool people into voting for him.
His mommie supported abortion also, and he dutifully followed in her footsteps.
I rewrote your comments using another sexual perversion:
Ordinary, polite people with no hang-ups themselves can usually co-exist with all sorts of individuals. Beastialitists are little threat to me, as long as they are not aggressive, and dont make me watch.
My wife and I are very conservative, yet we have Beastialitist friends. We have many friends with whom we do not agree on all matters. No problem. We do not need the government or some identity-movement to tell us how to live.”
Sorry, just don’t want to be around either type of sicko- especially at a club for families. I set a little higher standard than “As long as they don’t make me watch”. I do think I am polite and respectful to others, but if not wanting your kids to be around sexual perverts is a hang-up...so be it.
shame she can’t knock some sense into her kid and for the life of me I cannot understand how people like this mother let her child become so screwed up.
I have kids and teach them every day what is right and wrong and what thye have to look out for off the TV, media papers , school etc.
Yet again the media try and make it out that if you oppose such sick acts and unnatural acts of sex then it's wrong.
It is they who are wrong and they can write their headlines as much as they want but it won't silence me , it won't make me shut up at events or even at the neighbors and it certainly won't stop me telling my kids that it is unhealthy , unnatural and pretty sick to be honest.
But the left pushes things so anyone against “gay marriage” is anti- gay or “homophobic.”
Next step will be anyone against man/boy love is a bigot. Sandusky will become a Civil Rights martyr.
Cigarettes in a movie gives it an R rating.
Homosexuality is a voluntary behavior that shortens life expectancy much more than smoking.
So where are the PSAs warning the public?
Who said she “let” him get screwed up? Once he reached maturity he became a liberal moron all on his own. Many parents pray for wayward children and cannot control them no matter what they do—look at Ronald Reagan and Ron Reagan, Jr....
Is that Brad’s bitch or just Bahney Fwank?
The way’s it’s getting nowadays, disagreeing with a homosexual person about anything is “homophobic”. Kind of like disagreeing with Obama about anything is “racist”, not wanting Shariah Law implemented is “Islamophobic”, not wanting one’s tax dollars used for abortions and birth control is “misogynist”, etc., etc., etc.
This dates me a bit but I remember when the infamous Dr. Jocelyn Elders was the surgeon general there was a political cartoon that showed her saying something along the lines of “of course we’ll teach children to perform every possible sexual activity there is. But they better not smoke a cigarette afterwards.”
Pitt once told Ellen DeGeneres, “Ive said that we would not be getting married until everyone in this country had the right to get married.”
I have to hand it to Pitt for finding a novel way to dodge that bullet and give his lib girlfriend the impression that he’s doing it for some noble reason too! I didn’t think he was that cunning.
So “phobic” is the trump card?
Can we introduce heterophobia? Christophobia?
Then we automatically win arguments with ad homonym attacks.
Is that Bwaney Fwank copping a feel?
Because the letter is certainly not pro-gay; as a matter of fact it spells out the anti-sodomist premise immediately.
My wife and I are very conservative, yet we have gay friends...
Well, the only comment I have here, since you state you're conservatives, is: don't turn you back on a homosexual. You never know when their pleasant demeanor will turn violent and knowing that most all serial killers are and were homosexual. Some are even cannibals.
Twitchy has some of the vile tweets directed at Mrs Pitt. I think God will use this to open up Brad’s eyes to the hatred that the homosexual community can spew on anyone who dares to disagree with them.
Why not? Critical thinking and logic have disappeared nowadays. Don’t forget Biblephobia.
Since last week, the election is no longer about politics—it’s personal.
I will not withhold my vote.
Looks like this nut (brad) fell quite far from the tree, indeed.
Another weak pr!ck who can’t stand against the prevailing winds.
I figure the homosexualists will demand Pitt disown his own mother and forbid him from ever seeing her again.
I am not trying to get anyone to vote or not vote.
The GOP has caused thousands to not vote for their next-in-line liberal. They are to blame for Obama beating Romney.
Just expressing my opinion and some facts.
Romney can’t win.
The GOP wanted Obama in in 2008, and it is clear they don’t want him defeated this time either.
Otherwise they would have run someone that could win.
You know, a Conservative
I don’t use Facebook, but a friend told me last night that there is a movement there by the American Psychiatric Association to legitimize pedophilia. And, reclassify it the way they did homosexuality in the 1970s. Like we didn’t see this coming (and of course, bestiality will be next).
I said she let him get screwed up and she did I believe.
Maybe she should have spent mroe time with him and telling him what was right and wrong.
I have 3 kids and they are no where near liberal or pro hiomo because they have been told so many times , nearly every day growing up what is right and wrong and what and how the media try to push and agenda.
Most of their friends who are liberal are the ones who have parents who hardly ever spend time witht heir kids telling them aout morals and how liberalism is so screwed up.
nail on head Tigerclaws.
I settle down and then turn the TV on and then see all of a sudden two men either making a comment or touching each other and that is on rated 14.
We have warnings of sex, bad language, etc and yet nohting about homosexuality which is the sickest one can put out on TV.
It’s about time warnings were done before a program comes on.
Actually do you or ayone know if anyone is working on that homo warning?
Not every child is amenable to parental influence, once they get to college.
I think that the reason that Pitt’s mother wrote the letter is because she is most likely offended by Angelina Jolie’s attempts to raise Pitt’s daughter in a gender neutral setting. I think that the letter to Obama was intended to be a dig at Angelina Jolie.
I’ve yet to meet a homosexual who is either happy, or normal in the head.
There is nohting natural or normal in a homosexuals head and like you said about serial killers etc is true but I’ll add another group, child molesters.
When a man touches a boy then he is also a homosexual, strange how the media ignore that point, mmmmmmm, just like they ignore the health dangers and diseases which homosexuality brings about.
Everyone of them are immature and certainly think like little children and demand like a baby.
And if you just met them it is a matter of a few moments before they will steer the conversation so they can tell you about being homosexual. Sheesh.
exactly and that is what I don’t get, why the need for so called men to act in such a girlie way and then tell us all how they like their sexual turn on’s.
Remember a time when they used to say it was their private business, boy has that time gone, now it’s look at me, I want attention, I want special rights etc.
Personally I’ve had it witht hem and if they think they can act ut in front of me or my kids or famly then they will and have be hearing from me and all the names under the sun won’t shut me up.
The presidential election this year is no longer a political event.
I will not stay away from the polls this November.
Jane Pitt must be a FReeper.
Brangelina’s mom and dad (the one whose Chrysler leBaron I drive) are A-OK!
No body should stay away from the polls this November.
There are a lot of Conservatives running for both houses of Congress and hundreds in local races.
The Presidential race has already been decided.
Just act, Brad, and stfu about politics.
Mrs. Pitt - see my tagline.
“So when are the homosexualist and abortion enthusiasts going to demand Brad Pitt be blacklisted in Hollywood?”
Probably about the same time as the believers in the sacredness of marriage demand he be blacklisted for living in sin all these years. Really, who cares? There are bigger things to worry about.
If the presidential race has already been decided, only God has made the decision.
To God’s glory, I accept the decision.
At least there are many Conservative sites on FB which I visit regularly.
God allows free will.
But judges according to how that free will is used.
When Clinton was elected President in the last century, my pastor said to me, what a tragedy.
I reminded him that when a people go away from His will, God will allow an evil leader to be in power as a divine judgment.
Remember when the Israelites wanted a King, and God made clear that they didn't need one, He is their King?
There were more evil kings than good ones back in Old Testament times. God's judgment.
When the Israelites came closer to God, they got a good king.
When they strayed away, they got a bad one.
How far must this nation have strayed that we only have a choice between two liberal men with almost the same ideals for president?
The GOP has decided to let Obama reign another 4 years by nominating a liberal GOP-e candidate who cannot win.
They decided the outcome, not God.
This is His judgment, unless an upset happens at the GOP convention in a few short weeks.
The difference is those who believe in the sacredness of marriage and human life have no power in Mr. Pitt’s business. However, those on the opposite side of these isues do.
I don’t care who is gay as long as;
one, they don’t try to force their lifestyle on me or anyone else.
Two, they don’t teach their lifestyle to children.
Three, they keep it behind closed doors.
Four, they don’t try to pretend that somehow their lifestyle is more “normal” or superior to heterosexuality.
Five, they don’t hold “gay pride” parades, after all we don’t hold “straight pride” parades.
Unfortunately a growing number of gay people are unwilling to meet any of these conditions which I personally consider to be quite reasonable expectations, therefore I say to all those, to hell with you and the jackass you rode in on and before you say anything about Matthew Shepard go and study the case of Jesse Dirkhising and then decide whether you really want to talk to me about Shepard.
