Famous liberal and gay rights advocate Brad Pitt has a surprising new adversary: his own mother.

Jane Pitt recently penned an anti-gay, anti-Obama letter to The Springfield News-Leader. In it, she pledges her support to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney while expressing disapproval of abortion and gay marriage.

There's more: the elder Pitt even takes a few shots at President Barack Obama.

“Any Christian who does not vote or writes in a name is casting a vote for Romney’s opponent, Barack Hussein Obama,” Jane wrote, adding that Obama is “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.”

Jane wrote the letter in response to another letter that was published by the Missouri newspaper; in it, the reader supported Christians who don't vote for Romney because of the politician's Mormon faith.

Mrs. Pitt responded: "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.”

Verification that the letter was indeed penned by Brad Pitt's mother was shaky at first: the newspaper had printed an editor's note denying any relation between the writer and the Moneyball star. Later, the publication printed a second editor's letter, saying, "To clear up earlier confusion, the News-Leader has verified the letter writer is the mother of actor Brad Pitt and local businessman Doug Pitt."

Her views certainly stand in stark contrast to those of her famous son. Last year, the 48-year-old expressed his approval of gay marriage, telling PEOPLE magazine, "No state should decide who can marry and who cannot. Thanks to the tireless work of so many, someday soon this discrimination will end and every American will be able to enjoy their equal right to marriage."

He also proclaimed that he and partner Angelina Jolie would not wed until "everyone else in the country who wants to be married is legally able" -- and this year, he declared his support for Obama in the 2012 election.

Another person the actor has supported? Ironically, his mother.

"She's very, very loving -- very open, genuine, and it's hilarious because she always gets painted in the tabloids as a she-devil," he told The Hollywood Reporter in January. "There's not an ounce of malice in her. She wants everyone to be happy."

    So you've never, in your entire life ever told anyone to "shut the fuck up"??? Just because you didn't proclaim it on a public site doesn't mean that you are any better than this person. Don't point out another person's (much less a stranger you know nothing about) flaws just because you dent yours.

    That is the response to anyone that has a different opinion. Shut up or I shut you up. Tolerance indeed.

    I don't give one fig what any celebrity says. I am certainly not going to vote one way or another just because Brad Pitt does. People need to think for themselves and not follow any celebrity. Celebrities are given way too much credit and for what? The put their pants on one leg at a time like everyone else - they just get paid a lot more for it which is disgusting!
