Brad Pitt’s mom: A vote for Obama is a vote to kill babies

I have given much thought to Richard Stoecker’s letter (“Vote for Mormon against beliefs,”June 15). I am also a Christian and differ with the Mormon religion.

But 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.

I hope all Christians give their vote prayerful consideration because voting is a sacred privilege and a serious responsibility.

  1. I am totally shocked!  Who knew?  I keep thinking I need to check this article out on “Urbanlegend.com”!  If this is totally true, then WOW!!!!  I say, “Good for Brad Pitt’s Mom!”  I would encourage everyone to pray for her!   Now that her thoughts and her stand for what is right is out there, she will be under attack by people who oppose her and will insult her or try to change her mind.

  2. I really get tired of hearing pro-life people say that they’re not going to vote because they’re having to choose the “lesser of two evils.” 

    Hate to break it to ya, folks- someone is going to be elected President in November. If it’s not Romney, it’s going to be four more years of Obama.

    Sometimes inaction can also be a great evil.

  3. Michelle, which is why people should not have voted for Romney is the first place. Vote on principle and you won’t be voting for evil.

  4. Jayson, I agree with your first statement, but that die is now cast.

    No one candidate will ever be a “righteous” choice, but we have to choose one, whether by active vote or by sitting out. There is no third option when the polls are counted.

  7. Courtnay – Ha, thanks for the clarification!  I’ll remember that next time the quote of the day is from a hollywood actor and everyone asks why we care!

    This election is a bit weird I must say – so is the prevailing thought going forward that the beliefs of a candidate really don’t matter?  Just align your values and you feel that they do an okay job representing you, don’t worry if they are Christian, Mormon, Islamic, Atheist, etc…?  Their religion is out the door in regards to things to consider?

  8. I’d vote for a one-eyed purple Muslim communist female if I thought she was truly convicted about saving the unborn.

    Right now, though, I got Romney. That’s what I got. Anything, anyone but your boy. Including the purple woman.

    Uhhh, yeah. That’s kinda how it should go EVERY election. Are you saying that you DON’T vote with those who align with your values and do a good job representing you? Why DO you vote for someone, Ex-RINO? Because they promise to give you free stuff?

  11. I am a Christian. I am not happy that my only choice is Romney, but it is. Obama has called himself a Christian, but every time he makes a decision, it flies in the face of Christianity. Example: abortion (there are so many more, but that’s the only one needed). My faith may differ from Romney’s, but he lines up closer to my Bible than Obama, who claims to be a Christian. He loves his family, he is more fiscally conservative, and he is a great family man. Do I agree with him on everything? No. Do I agree with Obama on anything? No! I will not let my reservations about Romney keep me from voting. That, indeed, would be a vote for Obama, and we can’t handle four more years of a pro abortion, tax hiking, deficit increasing, anti American president who has done nothing but golf, vacation, and make terrible policy! He’s had four years of destruction. It’s time to move him out!

  12. I would not put it passed Brad Pitt to call his mom and berate her for her comments it’s a well known fact that he was raised Southern Baptist and now calls himself agnostic/atheist in interviews. Not only that him and Angelina are for homosexual marriage and love Obama which leads me to believe they are OK with abortion too even though they have 6 kids 3 which were adopted. Angelina’s dad (Jon Voight) is VERY vocally opposed to Obama as well he’s a HARDCORE Republican. Both Angelina and Brad are total opposed to their parents politically. Pitt and Jolie were known for saying they would not get married until all the homosexuals could but thankfully their innocent children that aren’t brainwashed to the “shacking up is good enough” junk bugged them so much that they are deciding to marry.

    Yes, because if Romney was elected, abortions would stop on his election day.

    Because tax hikes would be awful – I mean, we might get to the rates we had in the days of Reagan.

    Anti-American President-  please refrain from drinking before posting.

    Do you know takes more vacation days than Obama?  Just about every other President.

  15. Ex-GOP – it would not be a bad thing to get back to the tax rates we had under Reagan – he cut taxes from the days of Carter and got the economy humming with 100,000s of jobs created each month unlike the current occupier of the WH.

    I will side with Romney because he has a verifiable track record of job creation, making a payroll, and turning around failing businesses.  Yes he is wealthy because he was in the right place at the right time and was smart enough to invest at that time.  You would do the same thing – everyone wants to make money.  My hope is that in the next couple of weeks, he actually steps up and demands answers from the Occupier to questions that need answering – what are you hiding regarding “Fast and Furious”, where are your college transcripts, if you were born in the US how did you qualifiy to get into colleges while listed as a foreign student…there are still way too many questions that have no good answers about Oblahma to allow me to even consider him for another term.  He HATES this country and wants us to be more like Greece or Spain – if he is re-elected, we will be there and in 8 years he will have destroyed a 230 yo success.
    What is amazing to me is that he really must hate himself because he is one of the 1% that need to be taxed more to pay their fair share…

  16. Karat – 

    Reagan had the benefit of a private-public sector growth at the same time.  It’s frustrating to see the private side growing while the public side continues to cut – which doesn’t happen in recessions – we’ve historically spent to keep those jobs going until things get good again.

    Romney has been a solid left leaning governor – not sure if it will translate with his new conservative stance.  

    The rest of your post moved you from somebody making points to some crazy person ranting – your last 100 words are borderline psychotic and not worth a response.

  17. Thank you for your considered response, Ex-GOP.  I am no huge fan of Romney, I do find, though, that he is a better choice for me because he is more aligned with my values and beliefs.  I should show more respect for the person currently in the WH, but I am not sure he has given any respect to the American people over the past 3 and half years to deserve mine.  That said, I find there are many unanswered questions about him that really should be answered – I just commented on a couple of them.  Romney will come under lots of scrutiny too, deservedly so, given he wants to President of the US.  Obama deserves the same scrutiny especially about the past 3 and a half years.

  18. How has he not shown enough respect to the American people?  The President of the United States is a big job, and while we might disagree with Bush, Obama, Reagan, or anybody else – to say they don’t deserve our respect is frankly un-American, un-Patriotic, un-thoughtful, and classless.

    Obama’s had scrutiny from Fox, Drudge, Donald Trump, congress, and 40% of the US for the last three years.  To say he’s gotten off lightly is to ignore the obvious.  To even bring up the things you did in your 5:15 post shows that there’s a lot of people making up a lot of things. The country has ignored these issues?  Come on.

    The things that need to be answered are this:

    – By both – what are we going to do long term about the debt?  If we raise taxes, how much?  If we don’t raise taxes – what are we cutting – military, social security, medicare?  
    – For Romney – if health care reform is repealed, what do you want to replace it with?  What is the number of uninsured Americans under that plan?
    – For both – how do we college to be an option for American youth?  How do we start controlling costs?

    There’s thousands of more good questions that matter to the future of the country – rehashing birth certificate battles is NOT one of those good questions.

    Yes she does. Southern Missouri. In fact, we live in the same city. I grew up in the same church (never knew Brad) and went to the same high school (Brad attended with my oldest sister). My niece was on the same sports team for years with his niece. Just some interesting factoids for you!! :)

    Yeah! We all know those atheist/agnostics are meanie pants and bullies automatically!! I mean, shoot, I constantly berate all my friends who are conservative Christians for not agreeing with me on politics and religion!! Just the other day I messaged Carla just to tell her off for being anti-gay marriage. *snicker*

    Oh wait, I don’t do that. It doesn’t seem Brad does either. The few interviews I have seen him mention his mom in he seems to love and respect her, even if they don’t agree. Just FYI. I love it when people make assumptions about people they don’t know just because they don’t like their views.

  22. Polygynist Kody Brown of “Sister Wives” once joked, “If I was going to have a brother husband, I’d want Brad Pitt.” Someone else said, “If Brad Pitt was his brother husband, Mr. Brown wouldn’t get much action.”
    Of course, this was all joking as the polygamy practiced by the religious group to which the Browns belong teaches that a man is to have multiple wives and the wives are to be faithful to one man.

  23. It’s un-American to not give our respect to someone who we believe has not earned it?

    I guess there have always been and will always be those who believe we must respect someone just because they hold a title or are in a leadership position.

  24. Jack-
    Absolutely! Being agnostic/atheistic myself, I make sure to at least once a day try and beat the Christian out of my daughter who was baptized by her choice at a non-denominational church last year. :P
    The notion that non-believers cannot peacefully interact with those of a religious inclination is patently absurd.

  27. Thank you X and JackBorsch,

    I join with you conniving agnostic/atheists when it comes to intolerance.

    You will NEVER hear me defend religious involvement in social issues. OK, so the Quakers were the first to organize against slavery and Dr King led a civil rights movement, but you will never see me acknowledge this in any of my posts or when discussing issues of church and state with people. You will never see me posting that the president has no Constitutional authority to issue mandates on religous issues.
    I pass up no opportunity to show the most appalling disrespect imaginable for religious convictions expressed by anyone on this board. My daughter and husband’s strong faith is a source of endless anguish for me.

    Absolutely, people of all faiths and and no faith cannot stand together on important moral issues.
    Oh my, I just remembered that the National Right to Life Committee is just such an organization where people of all faiths and no faith stand together.
    Well gee, maybe we can after all.

    Maybe Barack Obama..mmm…mmmm…mmm… will call her like he did Sandra Fluke.

  29. You know what I find so funny about some of these comments is how intolerant atheists are of people who have different beliefs.  A mother wanting to beat faith out of her daughter is hardly a loving way to behave.  That said, how does an atheist have a moral compass when they don’t have anything guiding their lives?  I am asking because I really don’t know, not to spark off a bitter, flame throwing spew. 

    Why don’t atheists band together and serve others the way Christians do?  I know many great ministries that put their lives on the line to serve others who are dying, in need of food, clothing, shelter.

  30. Hi KaratGirl,

    Xalisae, like JackBorsch and myself, was just being facetious. She doesn’t anymore beat her daughter than Jack bullies people of faith and I refuse to respect the beliefs of others.

    I have a hard and fast rule that I never get into religious debates and I will continue to adhere to it. I may not agree with one’s faith, but I will be the first to defend their right to have it.

  31. I am pretty sure organizations like Doctors Without Borders, UNICEF, and the like count as non-religious groups that help people. But I guess that doesn’t.count, or something like that. Sigh.

    I am so not arguing that old argument about whether atheists/agnostics have a moral compass and all that. No way lol.

  33. If you couldn’t tell that I wasn’t being serious (even AFTER I ended my statement by summing up exactly what I was getting at in clear terms!) with my first paragraph in my post, you have more things to worry about in your own life than whether or not other people are religious. Learn basic literary devices, then get back to me.

  34. [Hi, Jill. Wonderful blog that you have. Here’s what I found expressed on the web.]
    Brad Pitt’s Mom is Right !

    In Luke 17 in the New Testament, Jesus said that one of the big “signs” that will happen shortly before His return to earth as Judge will be a repeat of the “days of Lot” (see Genesis 19 for details). So gays are actually helping to fulfill this same worldwide “sign” (and making the Bible even more believable!) and thus hurrying up the return of the Judge! They are accomplishing what all of the Bible-thumpers couldn’t accomplish! Gays couldn’t have accomplished this by just coming out of closets into bedrooms. Instead, they invented new architecture – you know, closets opening on to Main Streets where little kids would be able to watch naked men having sex with each other at festivals in places like San Francisco (where their underground saint – San Andreas – may soon get a big jolt out of what’s going on over his head!). Thanks, gays, for figuring out how to bring back our resurrected Saviour even quicker!
