Brad Pitt's mommy dearest made headlines last week after making her not-so-accepting views of the LGBT community known. In case you missed it, she wrote a letter to her local newspaper which encouraged readers to vote for Mitt Romney because of his opposition to same-sex marriage.
Obvi, we weren't thrilled and since Brad is a major supporter of equality, we bet he wasn't either. However, the woman is a faithful conservative Christian and we all know how hard it can be to shake some sense into that crowd.
We have our beliefs, they have theirs, but we wish we could all compromise when it comes to treating every human being with fairness.
Either way, Brad describes his mother, Jane, as a "very, very loving — very open, genuine" woman who "wants everyone to be happy." His brother, Doug, seems to agree and defended her right to express her views in the manner she did.
