Jane Pitt wrote a letter to her hometown paper, the Springfield, Mo., News-Leader saying presumed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney deserves “Christian” votes, even though he’s a Mormon, because he’s against abortion and shares “Christian conviction concerning homosexuality.”
Unlike, she wrote, President Obama, “a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage.”
There was some confusion over whether the letter was from the Jane Pitt, but the paper published an Editor’s Note online today under the letter.
“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.”
It’s surprising because Brad Pitt is one of the leading gay-friendly movie stars in Hollywood. Until he got engaged to Angelina Jolie earlier this year, the two had insisted they wanted gays to be able to marry legally before they got hitched.
