The following comes from a July 11 story on World News Daily.
The battle over Brad Pitt’s mother and her comments slamming Barack Obama while supporting Mitt Romney is collecting another member of the Brangelina clan: actor Jon Voight.
Voight, known for his roles in Midnight Cowboy, Deliverance, National Treasure, and TV’s 24, is the father of actress Angelina Jolie, who is married to actor Brad Pitt.
As WND reported this week, Jane Pitt, mother of actor Brad Pitt, has been scared into silence by the hate-filled, vulgar and even violent reaction to her public assertion that Barack Obama is “a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage.”
Pitt has even been the subject of death threats following her letter to the editor of Missouri’s Springfield News-Leader in which she asserted failure to vote for Republican presumptive presidential candidate Mitt Romney constituted a vote for Obama….
Now, Fox News is reporting Mrs. Pitt has at least one high-profile supporter on her daughter-in-law’s side of the family: Jolie’s father, Jon Voight. “Good for her,” Voight told FOX411′s Pop Tarts column, adding he agrees with the points-of-view expressed by Jane….
Unlike his mother, Hollywood actor Brad Pitt has taken a strong stand for same-sex marriage and supports Obama.
Brad Pitt has a long history of support for homosexual causes. He once famously declared he would refuse to marry Angelina Jolie until same-sex marriages were made legal in America in every state.
Following New York’s legalization of same-sex marriage, Pitt said, “It is each American’s constitutional right to marry the person they love, no matter what state they inhabit. No state should decide who can marry and who cannot.”
In 2008, Pitt donated $100,000 to help fight passage of Proposition 8, a constitutional amendment in California that recognized marriage as being between one man and one woman. In March, he portrayed homosexual Judge Vaughn Walker in 8, a play that re-enacted the trial where Walker overturned the amendment.
