A letter to the editor of News-Leader in Springfield Missouri is causing trouble for the writer, Jane Pitt, as well as for her son and mega superstar, Brad Pitt.

The male portion of Brangelina may be suffering some backlash from his fiance, Angelina Jolie, who is an avid Obama supporter. Here is what the letter said:
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.
Both Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have made their celebrity opinions clear that they are in favor of gay marriage and even went so far as to declare they would not marry until ‘everyone could legally marry.’
The couple, who havea total of six children, are now engaged but details about when are still unclear. Here is what the Daily Mail printed about the topic:
Jane has never wanted to talk politics with Angelina. Since the letter was published, Angelina has now reportedly asked Brad to teach his mother not to be so outspoken about same-sex marriage, especially since the celebrity couple clearly support it. ‘(She) has told Brad he must educate his mother, but Brad is too much of a mama’s boy,’ a source told the magazine. ‘If Brad won’t do it, Angelina will have to take matters into her own hands and talk to Jane about how, as the mother of such a prominent celebrity, she shouldn’t be writing letters that clash with her son’s personal opinions.’ And it appears that Brad just wants to brush the entire issue under the carpet, in fear of being stuck in the middle of his future wife and own mother. ‘It’ll inevitably end up in a huge blowout, with Brad stuck in the middle.’
So now Brad’s mother is not supposed to voice an opinion that differs from her famous daughter-in-law-to-be? How grossly self-absorbed and self-important. Just remember that rich and famous Hollywood types can afford to be uber-liberal.
