Brad Pitt's brother, Doug Pitt, has
suggested he disagrees with his mother's anti-gay views but supports
her right to have them.
Last week, Jane Pitt made headlines
with an op-ed critical of President Barack Obama for supporting
“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,” Jane Pitt wrote, referring to presumed GOP presidential
candidate Mitt Romney.
“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.”
Brad Pitt is a strong advocate for gay
rights and in particular marriage.
In an appearance on Today, Doug
Pitt suggested disagreements are healthy.
“Moms and dads and kids agree to
disagree all over the world, so why would our family be any
different," Pitt said. "There can be healthy discussion
when people disagree with you and I think there should be. 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. If anything, it solidifies your point or maybe you learn
something,” he said.
