A pro-Romney, anti-Obama letter penned by Brad Pitt's mom has gone viral because it apparently struck a chord with Americans. And also because the writer is Brad Pitt's mom.
Pitt is known for some fairly liberal views, and is a strong gay marriage supporter - so much so, that he's said he won't marry Angelina until all gay couples can marry. But Brad's mom has quite different ideas:
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'm saying she's a hypocrite who ought to have enough respect for her son and his life and positions since she's on welfare without his money that she should keep her mouth shut. Nothing like biting the hand that feeds you.
And these are the applicable definitions of "tolerance"... 1. a fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward those whose opinions, practices, race, religion, nationality, etc., differ from one's own; freedom from bigotry. 2. a fair, objective, and permissive attitude toward opinions and practices that differ from one's own. 3. interest in and concern for ideas, opinions, practices, etc., foreign to one's own; a liberal, undogmatic viewpoint. http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/tolera...
Notice definition 3? It doesn't make sense unless you use the "classical definition" of "liberal".
Definition 4 is the applicable one...
4. favorable to or in accord with concepts of maximum individual freedom possible, especially as guaranteed by law and secured by governmental protection of civil liberties.
No one will accept every opinion, position or belief they encounter in life. We are all equal in that regard. My favorite people are the one's that "tolerate" of their own free will. All I know about Mrs. Pitt is from the letter she wrote but seems like that type of person.:)
So she expects "the world" to think like her or else? Wow! Knocks the crap out of me, when was she born? Oohh that's what i thought, in the 20th century! But how long ago in that century? Obviously decades of decades ago, move in to the 21st century lady,it's time.
what an evil bigoted woman,going against the values (or lack of)of almost every Hollywood star,quick get her some left wing kool-aid!!!My gosh listen to wanna be commies come out of the woodwork against her,and no i wouldn't vote for Romney any sooner than barack
Mitt Romney penned legislation that allowed and funded abortion. Mitt Romney recently had a fund raiser at the home of Phil Frost, ceo of Teva pharmacuticals, maker of the morning after pill. Romney believes gays should be able to live together, adopt and even share health coverage. Mitt Romney is a Mormon who believes Jesus Christ was simply another prophet and not the son of God or Savior. If a vote for Obama banishes you to Hell, what will a vote for Romney do? REAL Christians will write in Ron Paul or Mike Huckabee if they are voting based on faith Missus Pitt.
Mormons believe that God lives on the planet Kolob. That they will all become Gods someday too and get their own planet. That Joseph Smith talked to God and so does the current Prophet for that matter. That the Native Americans and Black people were turned dark because of Sin. Wonder if Mama Pitt knows all that?
Loving her son unconditionally doesn't mean she isn't embarressed to have a dirty hippie for a son, a tattooed freak for a daughter in law, and foreign grandchildren because they're too good to adopt Americans orphans.
American children are harder to adopt and many times the process gets so bogged up in paperwork and money invested without results that people give up out of frustration and go the easier route to other countries. I you'd adopted before or even bothered to research before commenting, you might know this. It's very apparent you don't though. So thanks for your misguided, inaccurate and vitriol filled post of genius.
They just adopted foreign children as that's the in vogue thing now,plus they have people for raising the kids anyway. wasn,t it them that had a hell of a time getting their last kid,some Zimbabwe government adoptive issues,not sure of the exact facts but they spent a lot more red tape and money than they would of here.i'll look it up
How is this story any different from the Morgan Freeman bit. I fully expect all the comments made there to be made again if you truly believe what you wrote. That "Who cares what they think? Stardom doesn't make genius"?
