Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie famously said they wouldn’t get married until everyone could. Turns out Brad’s mother doesn’t have the same idea. In a letter endorsing Mitt Romney, Jane Pitt says it would benefit her fellow Christians if they could look past Romney being Mormon and vote for him because he holds the same anti-abortion/anti-homosexual values that they do.
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.
Brad Pitt must be so embarrassed. This is like when your mom drops you off at school as a kid and starts yelling out the window that she loves you, to make new friends, makes kissy noises at you and furiously waves goodbye while driving off forcing you to yell in a really annoyed tone, “Moooom.” Except, this is 100 times worse.
