Brad Pitt’s mum against gay marriage
Washington: Brad Pitt may support gay-marriage, but his mother Jane Pitt apparently does not.
In a letter printed in The Springfield News-Leader on Tuesday, Pitt’s mother supported Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney and his conservative views on homosexuality.
Jane was responding to a letter previously published by a reader who urged voters to shut out Romney’s presidential bid because of his Mormon beliefs. She identified herself as “a Christian [who differs] with the Mormon religion.”
“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,” Us Magazine quoted her as saying.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, the Missouri newspaper had initially printed an editor’s note denying a relation between the writer and Pitt.
However, the paper replaced the first editor’s note with a second, reading, “Editor’s note: 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.”
However, the mother and son have drastically different views on this issue.
In September 2007, Brad donated 100,000 dollars to the campaign against Proposition 8 “because everyone has the right to live the life they so desire if it doesn’t harm another and because discrimination has no place in America.”
