Hollywood is a liberal town, and they like their stars to hew to the party line. When a relative goes off the reservation they get their panties in a wad. The Hollywood Reporter and Think Progress are especially apoplectic about a letter to the editor by Jane Pitt, mother of A-list actor Brad Pitt and future mother-in-law to Angelina Jolie and their brood of kids. In the piece, which is a response to another letter to the editor, Mrs. Pitt makes the case that Christians should not refuse to consider voting for a Mormon, and should look at what the candidates support as compared to what their faith teaches.
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.
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.
How’s it being covered by the left? Here’s a sample.

UPDATED: Brad Pitt’s Mother DID Write Anti-Gay Letter [Think Progress]
So for accurately pointing out the positions of both candidates she’s “anti-gay”? I’ll give you that’s she most certainly appears to be “anti-Obama,” but not supporting same-sex marriage does not make you “anti-gay,” no matter how often the left perpetrates that fallacy.
