Posted on 07/07/2012 3:19:37 PM PDT by pistolpackinpapa
LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- Brad Pitt has long been an advocate for gay rights (initially vowing to hold off on marrying longtime love Angelina Jolie until gay marriage became legal nationwide), but his mother, Jane Pitt, apparently takes a different stance on the issue.
In a letter penned for her local newspaper, Jane urged Christian voters not to be put off by candidate Mitt Romneys Mormon faith, as he still maintains conservative views in line with Christian beliefs despite his differing religion including his posture on gay marriage and abortion.
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, she wrote in the opinion piece for The Springfield News-Leader this week.
Jane added 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.
While the letter may seem harsh to some, Brad has previously said his mother means no harm.
Shes very, very loving very open, genuine, and its hilarious because she always gets painted in the tabloids as a she-devil, he told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview back in January. Theres not an ounce of malice in her.
She wants everyone to be happy, the actor noted.
How dare you... So that’s what Freerepublic has become? Think one way or else your booted? I have been here since 1998. I have never been as ashamed of it as I am right now.
You may have to define two words - and you know which ones they are - to make you post understandable to PaleoBob and other Galloping Neanderthals.
The First Amendment and censorship laws don’t apply to private entities scheisskopf.
Why are you being so nasty? Shes taking a stance that is very unpopular in Hollywood and that opposes her son and his Liberal, Hollywood friends. You have a real attitude. Maybe you should change your FR Screen name from mrsloungitude to mrslongonattitude. You apparently have a close relation, maybe a child, who is gay and this is a sore spot with you. But, hell, you dont have to take it out on the rest of the world. Lighten the f**k up.
Wow, I made a simple statement giving my opinion and you resorted to cursing, name calling and assumptions about me and my family. Very Christian of you.
You have a limited # of options then . It’s funny that you claim the high ground on a web page when we are discussing politicians after all . Like they as a body have some morals or ethics .
Your posturing makes for a nice fantasy spasm but in the real world where the adults live it wont work . Make a choice and punch the name . Write yourself in or lay down .
All citizens have to make the same choice . Business owners are not exclusive to the choice we have to make nor are the self rightous . Dont vote . Write in . Or lay down . It’s very simple really .
“So thats what Freerepublic has become? Think one way or else your booted?”
No, it has not. You can hold a ABO opinion and espouse it. However, to say that those that don’t agree with your ABO opinion to be “Obama supporters” (even unwittingly) because, out of disgust for the GOPe’s pick Romney, they refuse to support Romney. That is just NOT true and not welcome here. A third party vote or a blank ballot is NOT a default vote for Obama...it is what it is...a vote against both Obama and Romney. Jim Robinson and a great many regulars on this forum WILL NOT roll over for a liberal (pro-abortion, pro-homo, liberal compromising) candidate like Romney that has been foisted upon conservatives by the GOP establishment that are NOT real conservatives.
So, insulting a person here that takes a principled stand against either Obama or Romney is NOT to be insulted by calling them default (or otherwise) Obama supporters.
IF you are others chose to waste your vote on a piece of human excerement like Romney....that is your choice. IF you do it because you think Anyone if Better than Obama...that is also your choice and you are free to express it. However, stick to that line...DO NOT insult principled conservatives than won’t drink the GOPe Romney Cyanide Koolaid. Romney is NOT pro-life, he is NOT anti-homosexual agenda, he is NOT even conservative. He is NOT a proper candidate to represent the conservative base of the GOP faithful. We (many of us) are sick of being marginialized by the GOPe as being the only way we can vote. So, we are standing up to them, and liberalism in the GOP.
So, if not being able to call Romney opponents on this forum, “Obama Supporters” (by whatever specious reasons you may dredge up) is something to be “ashamed” of....then maybe you are in the wrong place.
Jim Robinson wrote the following today on a post:
“We are losing our country to godless socialism and what does the GOP do? Run an abortionist/homosexualist statist whose socialist RomneyCare program was the blueprint and impetus for ObamaCare! Screw that!! I’ll vote for the GOP’s candidate for the presidency when they run a CONSERVATIVE!! Otherwise, to hell with them!! The GOP is fast becoming cementing their place as part of the problem! Wake up America!!”
He wrote this on a slightly earlier date:
“Well, people keep badgering me about this. No I will not vote for an abortionist for president. Period. Its no secret. Ive been posting that I will not vote for Rudy/Romney abortionist for many years. Have had a headline stating that fact on the top of our main forum index page for years:
Welcome to Free Republic, Americas exclusive site for God, Family, Country, Life & Liberty conservatives!
Romney does not qualify on any count!”
“Your posturing makes for a nice fantasy spasm but in the real world where the adults live it wont work . Make a choice and punch the name . Write yourself in or lay down.”
More specious logic that is NOT real world as you espouse. It is defeatism and surrender to the massa GOPe. However, I propose you write that same calumny in reference to Jim Robinson. He position is very strong and you won’t be here long if you keep lambasting those that oppose Romney as not be “adults.” Read #30 on this thread for direct Jim Robinson quotes.
How dare you... So thats what Freerepublic has become? Think one way or else your booted?
Yes . It’s gotten so much different than in the past . Damn shame really . The commonality , associations, the knowledge . I dont see it anymore . It’s all good . we have the entire planet at our finger tips ;)
So lay down then .
Ping him . You dragged him into this . The facts dont change . You have 4 choices and so you know I have to lower myself to play your game .
You keep your bubble . I dont have to like my choice either but it is what it is . Go run for office if you think you have what it takes but shoving your unrealistic standards into politics is a fantasy spasm at best .
“I dont have to like my choice either but it is what it is.”
You have other choices. I for one am supporting and voting for conservative members of the House and Senate, and helping to remove those that are not...be they Dems or Reps.
I’m NOT going to ping Jim Robinson - I will not bother him for some minor post. I have correctly quoted his positions. Do a search under his name and see what he has been saying.
The simple point is, that you had better stop directly or inderectly insulting or denigrating those of us that are more principled in our stand against Romney and Obama. Neither are acceptable. If you chose to think you are being “realistic” and “adult” then fine. However, this is not the place for those opinions. As Jim Robinson says, this is the home of the “Resistance.”
If you doubt me, then try going head to head with him.
We ALL know that Obama is a terrible POTUS and 4 more years of him unchecked is terrible; that is a given. What is NOT a given is that Romney is the answer....he is NOT. Sometimes the answer is best, “None of the above.” It is a powerful statement when uttered by large numbers. This isn’t “pie in the sky.” This is saying, NO MORE COMPROMISE.
Do a search under his name and see what he has been saying.
I dont chase him around and in fact I spoke to him 1 time in 12 years as Dorben .
The simple point is, that you had better stop directly or inderectly insulting or denigrating those of us that are more principled
The simple fact is you have 4 choices and you want to bring principles into politics ? Go have your protest vote pal . I’ll take socialist lite over a Marxist any time like you’re the only 1 huh ? Aint you special .
If you chose to think you are being realistic and adult then fine. However, this is not the place for those opinions
Oh .. it’s an opinion . Reality is an opinion ? You keyboard commando’s just kill me with your no more compromise . Every vote you ever cast was a compromise Sola . You outsource your future to them and hope they carry your water dont you ...
You go ahead and “ Stand your ground “ while I vote for Romney . Doubt he would write up EO’s at his leisure ergo slapping your sacred cow Senate in the face again . And again . I’m voting for Romney . I’ll put it in caps if you still dont get it .

“PORTLAND, Ore. A man on parole for trying to infect children with HIV nearly 20 years ago pulled a boy into a Portland restaurant bathroom over the weekend, attempted to sexually assault him and then stabbed him several times, police said.”
(AP. July 3, 2012 )
It’s not a protest.. IT’S SURRENDER. There is no argument. There is no debate. Good luck explaining it to your grandchildren when they ask you why you didn’t vote to rid America of the force that ruined America. Selfish egotists, that’s what you are.
Its not a protest.. ITS SURRENDER.
Whole site full of people who drink there self rightous “ Principles “ ... Like this is news to us . Maybe you can penetrate that rebar solidified koolaid in this “ Head “ .
American is my house and it’s more important than this house . See you soon Hildy .
“Its not a protest.. ITS SURRENDER. There is no argument.”
No you are SURRENDERING not I. You will have to explain voting for a phoney conservative and a Mormon Cultist to boot. Mormonism is a terrible lie and it breeds more lies. You DON’T fight evil (Obama) with more evil (Romney). That is just insane.
Like I keep telling you. IF you are so certain of your position....take it up with Jim Robinson. Call him the things you have called me falsely....see how long you remain on this forum insulting perosns of integrity and principle that WILL NOT be driven by fear of Obama to make a mistake in supporting Romney.
Poison is poison....either way you are dead.
