Earlier this week, Brad Pitt's mom penned a letter to the Springfield News-Leader in her hometown of Springfield, Missouri, opining that folks in her community should think twice before voting for President Obama this fall, given that his opponent -- Mitt Romney -- embraces such "Christian convictions" as opposition to abortion and homosexuality. (See the letter here, as well as the paper's confirmation that this is, indeed, Brad Pitt's mother.)
We all know that Brad Pitt has been a huge ally for LGBT equality for many years, and this dangerous rhetoric from his mother is horrifying. For LGBT youth in Springfield -- and places like Springfield all across this country -- hearing this kind of rhetoric is what leads to bullying, violence, and suicide.
We stand with Brad -- and not with his mother's hateful rhetoric. We're going to take out an ad in the very same paper in which her editorial appeared, in order to push back against this hateful language. Sign your name below to have your name included in that ad, and to stand on the right side of history for full LGBT equality!
