Jane Pitt is getting attacked for her Christian beliefs. This is the “New” America… where people openly and publicly attack & bully innocent Christians and our Holy faith. They gleefully spew viscous bigoted hate at Christians and threaten their lives because they love Jesus and believe in the Holy Bible.
In fact they HATE Christians and will stop at nothing to eradicate JESUS and our Holy Bible from society.
Our freedom of speech and & religion is under attack by the liberal secular progressive Christ-hating mob. It’s a HATE CRIME to attack Christians for their beliefs.
I wonder what Brad Pitt is thinking right now watching the people he supported > now viscously attack his own innocent mother? Why hasn’t he stood up for her!? Why hasn’t he publicly addressed this hate being spewed against his own mother? Is he afraid of the mob? Why aren’t these attacks on Mrs. Pitt HATE CRIMES?
Please pray for Jane Pitt – Brad Pitts mother. May God bless her. She is coming under viscous heinous attacks & death threats by this liberal secular progressive Christ-hating mob.
Stop attacking, threatening and BULLYING Christians! What happened to tolerance? The liberal secular progressive Christophobes DEMAND tolerance but refuse to tolerate Christians and our beliefs.
Christians need to come out of the closet. End the silence. Stand up for Jesus and our Holy faith. Combat Christophobia. Legalize Jesus.
STOP THE WAR ON JESUS. END CHRISTOPHOBIA.
Jane Pitt, mother of actor Brad Pitt, has been scared into silence by the hate-filled, vulgar and even violent reaction to her public assertion that Barack Obama is “a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage.”
Pitt has even been the subject of death threats following her letter to the editor of Missouri’s Springfield News-Leader in which she asserted failure to vote for Republican presumptive presidential candidate Mitt Romney constituted a vote for Obama.
WND spoke briefly with Pitt and asked about the media assault against her for her comments as a private citizen supporting Romney. With inflections in her voice that conveyed fear and despair, she quietly and politely said she was not interested in talking to anyone in the media about the incident.
When she was told WND supported her right to speak her mind and is appalled by the threats against her life, Pitt expressed gratitude to WND for being one of the few news agencies doing so. Even her thank you, however, was said in a subdued manner laden with heaviness of heart.
Pitt had every reason to be frightened. Following her letter to the editor in her local newspaper, the mainstream media have painted her comments in a vilifying light.
The Hollywood Reporter published a story headlined, “Brad Pitt’s mother pens anti-gay, anti-Obama letter to local newspaper.” The New York Daily News went further, penning an article originally titled, “Brad Pitt’s mom unleashes anti-gay, anti-Obama fury in letter.”
She Knows Entertainment reported that Pitt actually “hates Obama, ‘gay’ people.”
These slants on the story, however, are mild compared to comments posted on Twitter.
Editors of the Twitter-scouring news site Twitchy exclaimed sarcastically, “Time for the left’s self-proclaimed arbiters of tolerance to teach her a lesson with their hateful, misogynist slurs and death wishes.”
Twitchy then spotlighted some of the tweets it found.
“Brad Pitt’s mom, die,” wrote Twitter-poster Sandy Kownacka.
A tweet from “I Bleed Gaga” echoed similar sentiments, saying, “Brad Pitt’s mom wrote an anti-gay pro-Romney editorial. Kill the b—-.”
Other comments included, “F— you, brad pitt’s mom, the gay community made your kid a star, you whacko,” and, “Brad Pitt’s mom is a dumb c—.”
Many of the comments told her to commit vulgar sexual acts with the commenter.
These statements stand contrary to Pitt’s own statements about his mother. In January, Pitt told the Hollywood Reporter that his mother was a very loving person.
“She’s very, very loving – very open, genuine, and it’s hilarious because she always gets painted in the tabloids as a she-devil,” the actor said. “There’s not an ounce of malice in her. She wants everyone to be happy.”
Jane Pitt originally penned her letter to the editor responding to another reader, Richard Stoecker, who stated that Christians should not vote for Romney based on his Mormonism.
In her rebuttal letter, she acknowledged that there were doctrinal differences between Mormonism and Christianity, but she took issue with the rest of Stoecker’s reasoning.
Pitt wrote, “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.”
Pitt went on to say, “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.”
Her statements on Obama’s record, however, are not opinions, but established facts. Obama himself has come out and said he supports the rights of homosexuals to marry. He has repeatedly backed legalized abortion. While he was a state senator in Illinois, Obama opposed a bill that would have required medical care to be given to infants who survived an abortion.
Unlike his mother, Hollywood actor Brad Pitt has taken a strong stand for same-sex marriage and supports Obama.
Brad Pitt has a long history of support for homosexual causes. He once famously declared he would refuse to marry Angelina Jolie until same-sex marriages were made legal in America in every state.
Following New York’s legalization of same-sex marriage, Pitt said, “It is each American’s constitutional right to marry the person they love, no matter what state they inhabit. No state should decide who can marry and who cannot.”
In 2008, he donated $100,000 to help fight passage of Proposition 8, a constitutional amendment in California that recognized marriage as being between one man and one woman. In March, he portrayed homosexual Judge Vaughn Walker in “8,” a play that re-enacted the trial where Walker overturned the amendment.
Brad Pitt‘s mother Jane has been targeted with death threats online after a letter she wrote last week to a Missouri newspaper, opposing same-sex marriage and PresidentBarack Obama‘s re-election, was published to much fanfare.
Other comments: “F*** you, brad pitt’s mom, the gay community made your kid a star, you whacko,” and, “Brad Pitt’s mom is a dumb c***.”
Contacted by the website WND, Jane saidshe was no longer commenting to the media on the incident.
As we previously reported, the Springfield News-Leader’s July 3 edition featured a response letter written by the A-lister’s mom in which she disagreed with a previous published letter saying presumed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney‘s Mormon beliefs should keep him from the Oval Office.
Jane — calling herself “a Christian [who differs] with the Mormon religion” — wrote in response, “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.”
Jane wrote “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 publicceremony to mark the National Day of Prayer, and is a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage.”
Jane’s comments are in stark contrast to her famous son, who has said that he and partner Angelina Jolie would not marry until same sex marriage is the law of the land.
EXCLUSIVE: Jon Voight defends Brad Pitt’s mom
after she gets death threats for penning anti-
Obama letter to the editor

LOS ANGELES – You can always count on family.
Last week, Brad Pitt’s mother Jane Pitt hit headlines after penning a response letter-to-the-editor of her local newspaper, Missouri’s Springfield News Leader, in which she advocated support for Republican Presidential candidate Mitt Romney, referring to him as a “a family man with high morals, business experience, who is against abortion, and shares Christian conviction concerning homosexuality.”
“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,” she continued. “I hope all Christians give their vote prayerful consideration because voting is a sacred privilege and a serious responsibility.”
“Good for her”
- John Voight
However, it seems the backlash surrounding Jane’s opinion has become so vehement that she has reportedly been “scared into silence.”
According to WND, Mrs. Pitt has not only been the victim of vulgar and hate-filled attacks, but she has also received death threats which have left her very frightened.
“So apparently Brad Pitt’s mom is a c***,” tweeted one, while another wrote that “Brad Pitt’s genetics have been brought into question.”
Some media outlets too had their way with her words as well, complete with headlines and references stating that she is “homophobic” and “hates Obama and gay people.”
But Mrs. Pitt has at least one high-profile supporter on her daughter-in-law’s side of the family: Jolie’s dad Jon Voight!
“Good for her,” Voight told FOX411’s Pop Tarts column, adding that he agrees with the points-of-view expressed by Jane.
A rep for Brad Pitt, an avid supporter of President Obama, did not respond for further comment. Jane Pitt declined further comment when we attempted to reach her.
Brad’s brother Doug also defended his mother earlier this week during an appearance on the “Today Show.”
“I think moms and dads and kids agree to disagree all over the world. So why would our family be any different? There can be healthy discussion when people disagree with you,” he said. “The bad thing is when it turns to venom and negativity, and we don’t have that in our family. It’s open discussion. We can learn from each other and, if anything, it solidifies your point. Or maybe you learn something.”
Oh, to be a fly on the wall when Brangelina and the family sit down for Sunday dinner in that big French castle they bought…
