Brad Pitt's Mother Slams Obama, Gay Marriage
Access Hollywood ^ | July 6, 2012 | Access Hollywood/Staff

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 Romney’s 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 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.”

While the letter may seem harsh to some, Brad has previously said his mother means no harm.

“She’s very, very loving — very open, genuine, and it’s hilarious because she always gets painted in the tabloids as a she-devil,” he told The Hollywood Reporter in an interview back in January. “There’s not an ounce of malice in her.

“She wants everyone to be happy,” the actor noted.

Was Pitt adopted? What happened to him?

I wonder what are the chances that she could get a spot at the Convention to make a speech?

He was presented with the very same choice every successful actor or musician is today.

“Join the cause or find a new line of work”.

It really is that simple in the entertainment biz. When a high percentage of people in the business are either gay themselves or related to someone who is, thou shalt not speak against the pink mafia.

I don’t think Pitt is adopted. I think money and fame mean more to him than how he was raised.

“Wow!! What a shocker. Sounds like a very committed, Christian lady.”

That isn’t how I read it. I see someone who is ABO. Mr. Romney has already said he WILL NOT help reinstate DADT. He has a shaky history on opposition to the Homosexual Agenda. Although, just about anyone would be better than Mr. Obama, I don’t see that Romney is the answer.

I WILL NOT support him...period. He “might” be better for the economy than Mr. Obama, but that is the full extent of Mr. Romney’s worth. So, voting for him IS NOT an option for a TRUE conservative...especially one that claims to be a “Moral/Social” one. That is my opinion. As a moral/social conservative, I cannot vote for Romney anymore than I can obama.

“I hope that you do NOT live in a battleground State where your non-vote would matter.”

DO NOT START that ABO crowd NONSENSE that “NOT VOTING FOR ROMNEY IS A VOTE FOR OBAMA.” It is NOT. That line of arguement is NOT welcome here on FR. You can be ABO, but busting the chops of those that won’t drink that Romney cyanide koolaid is NOT cool. Take it elsewhere.

IF you don’t believe me, then tell Jim Robinson he is “voting for Obama” for refusing to vote for Romney...you will get booted. Don’t push is sparky.

PS on you page you post “I am a Ronald Reagan style Republican who votes morality over money.” (I agree with this sentiment strongly)

You WILL NOT get morality from a mormon cultist. You are just setting yourself up for worse (you are getting the devil in disguise). Also, Romney DOES NOT have a history of opposing homosexuality....on issues of “morality” he will be NO better than the dreaded Obama. Neighter Obama or Romney should be POTUS. You are, IMO, deluding yourself to think otherwise.

Vote for Romney and you ruin ANY chance of ever getting another Ronald Reagan as the GOP nominee. You are being a sheep for the GOPe which doesn’t give a rip what we moral conservatives think. They have lied to us for years. Don’t help them continue to do so.

That took so much courage. I was thinking about Carrie Underwood and her statement in support of homosexual “marriage”. She was a coward who took the easy way out. If she had come out against it, her career would likely have been over and she would have been persecuted mercilessly and made a mockery of until she disappeared.

He never “sucked up” to Stalin. He got muscled by commie-sympathetic FDR into bad accommodations. Britain’s need for good relations with Washington trumped all.

But when Churchill ran for re-election, he directly opposed Stalin and the Soviets and made no bones about it; and of course it cost him the election with a war-weary population that still tends to worship Marxist types to this day.

In short, you won’t be sucking up to Romney. You’ll just be doing your level best to remove a communist from power in the USA. And that is God’s work. Do it. (Churchill would.)

Yep, would be interesting indeed if the home of conservative discourse became a place where the first amendment died. No matter what you say, objectively, staying home, or voting write in, is a vote for obama.

Period, there is no logical disputation of that very unpleasant fact. Romney was my last choice, just before obama.

Vitriol only emphasizes the lack of logic in the position, IMO.

I think you’re putting too fine a point on it. He did what he had to do to accommodate a very evil man during a time of pressing need, and based on my reading of his remembrances, Roosevelt had nothing to do with it. However, “suck up” is undoubtedly too harsh a term, since it implies obsequiousness. Whatever the case, I would have done the same, assuming I were as perspicacious as Churchill at the time.

Why are you being so nasty? She’s 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 don’t have to take it out on the rest of the world. Lighten the f**k up.

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 .

“So that’s 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. It’s no secret. I’ve 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, America’s exclusive site for God, Family, Country, Life & Liberty conservatives!

Romney does not qualify on any count!”

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.

“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.

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 .

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.

Sir, you are a fool if you even remotely think Romney is the answer. BTW - IF we can get control of both House and Senate, then Mr. Obama can and will be impeached in the House and tried and convicted in the Senate for going beyond his constitutional limits. I again quote Jim Robinson:

“By the way, I’m 100% certain that with a conservative majority in the house and senate we can and will impeach and remove and expel the treasonous usurping criminal conspiracy aka Obama, Biden, Reid, Pelosi & Co., including a whole passel of corrupt/usurping congress critters, government officials and judges/justices.”

Once again....challenge him and call him unrealistic or “Fantasm”, etc. See what happens sparky!

Should you, and I doubt it will happen, get Romney elected...he will just do the same things Obama has done, just in a more sneaky manner and won’t have a congress to stand up to him because of “party loyalty.” It will negate gains in the House and Senate by conservatives.

Jim, I am sorry to bother you, but once again there are folks still messing with the “revolution” here on FR. Because, just as you, I refuse to support Romney...I am slandered by them. Please review some of the things these two have said on this thread by these two especially.

They are not merely content to express an ABO position, they feel compeled to slander those that won’t.

The unalienable rights to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness are now “self-righteous principles?”

Good Lord. What have we become? Slaves to overbearing government?

Romney is a statist. An abortionist/homosexualist statist!

The abortion and homosexual agenda thing is obvious, but maybe you’re missing the fact that his signature achievement as governor was to impose a compulsory socialist health care system complete with mandates and penalties (or taxes) against the formerly free citizens who refuse to go along with tyranny. And, yes, the government forcing it’s subjects, er, free citizens into contracts against their will is tyranny and it is a violation of our fundamental constitutional rights and is antithetical to the founders intentions and vision for a free republic. Don’t look now but that’s exactly what ObamaCare does and why freedom loving patriots are up in arms against HIS tyranny!

Obama is a statist. ObamaCare is statism. Look it up.

statism - the theory or practice of concentrating economic and political power in the state, resulting in a weak position for the individual or community with respect to the government

Statism is where the government controls the economy and restricts economic freedom. Well, that’s exactly what ObamaCare does.

And guess what, that’s exactly what RomneyCare does.

And it doesn’t end there. Obama and Romney both agree that the bailouts were good ideas and more may be needed. They both love TARP. They also both agree that government stimulus spending is necessary and good and that more may be needed. Again, government controlling or trying to control the economy is statism. Obama is a statist. Romney is a statist. They advocate the exact same thing: Controlling/restricting our economic freedom and not only limiting our choices but demanding that we purchase specific government approved products only. And worse, in this case, charge a tax penalty if you refuse to purchase anything at all.

C’mon people, resisting tyranny of this sort is not stubbornness and these are not “self-righteous” principles. Economic freedom is one of our fundamental founding principles. Without economic freedom, there is no Liberty! Likewise, without the right to life, there can be no Liberty!

Obama cares nothing about our God-given unalienable rights, and by HIS actions and well-known advocations regarding abortion, the homosexual agenda, gun control, liberal judges, compulsory healthcare, mandates against the people, etc, Romney obviously doesn’t appreciate our rights either!!

Romney is a statist just exactly like Obama!! It’s steeped into his psyche. That’s what he is and where he goes when making decisions. The state reigns supreme in his inner conscience. He’ll take us to the exact same place that Obama is taking us to and it will be a place where government controls the economy and limits your freedom!! Only in Romney’s case, the Republicans will be willing to go along.

Not only no, but Hell no, I will not trade one statist for another just like him!!

Free Republic was founded to fight against this kind of corruption and tyranny. I’ll be damned if we’re going to knuckle under to either of these statist tyrants!!

Romney can KMA!! Obama can KMA!! The GOP-e can KMA!!

Don’t tread on me!!

By the way, and this statist tyranny (ObamaCare / RomneyCare) was exactly the reason the tea party sprang up. It would be a shame and a disgrace if tea partiers now wimp out and support a proven statist tyrant like Romney!!

We are the resistance!!

Thank you very much dearest Jim.

I don't give a rip how others vote, but my vote is mine, and I've said all along, that I'm not voting for Romney.

Free Republic hasn't changed, so this talk about "what has FR become?" isn't valid.

I'm all about trying to elect TEA PARTY candidates to the US House and Senate, to block liberal legislation, no matter which liar wins the WH. God help us save our Republic.

BTW, I remain in serious prayer for a miracle in Tampa.

Must leave now for the pool. SYL. God bless and keep you all.

Ditto. There are several local, state, congressional and senate candidates that I am supporting with as much energy and finances as possible.
I just cannot in good conscience vote for Romney.

I hear you, Mr. Robinson—Just don’t know what to do about it! Apparently the TEA Party isn’t going to offer a candidate for whom we can vote-————

You ask me why I believe that President Obama could be impeached then convicted in the Senate IF we can gain a strong conservative control of both chambers. First of all I will quote Jim Robinson:

“By the way, I’m 100% certain that with a conservative majority in the house and senate we can and will impeach and remove and expel the treasonous usurping criminal conspiracy aka Obama, Biden, Reid, Pelosi & Co., including a whole passel of corrupt/usurping congress critters, government officials and judges/justices.”

I have nothing but respect of the “office” of POTUS as I do the constitution. Mr. Obama has clearly exceeded, on numerous occasions, his constitutional authority in regards to the intended limitations on the authority of POTUS set forth in the COTUS. IF, of course that is a big IF, enough dedicated conservatives can be elected in both the House and Senate, I fully believe they will properly use the power of the Congress to put in check the Executive branch. Mr. Obama is only still POTUS because most of the current members of House and Senate either back him or lack the courage to remove him IAW the COTUS. Placing a person that is not a COTUS purist (and much worse) like Mr. Romney in office will render this moot....and could destroy it because his own party members will not oppose him out of “party loyalty.”

Of course, if by some unseen miracle, a true conservative could come out of the RNC instead of Mr. Romeny....then sanity and order could be returned to the Office of POTUS. This WILL NOT happen as long as Romney is the GOPe nominee.
