Brad Pitt has been openly supportive of the LGBT community. However, his mother's views clearly don't match with his.
His mother, Jane Pitt wrote and anti-gay and pro- Mitt Romney letter to a Missouri newspaper. In the letter to the Springfield News Leader she bashed President Obama and said it was unchristian like to vote for him.

"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."
During a 2011 interview with People magazine, Brad Pitt voiced his support of the LGBT community saying, "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."
Pitt's mother letter came in response to a letter that was previously printed in the newspaper by another Christian who shared strong views on religion and politics. "Christians who want a government that reflects their values believe that God guides and protects their country," said Richard Stoecker in his opinion piece. "Not a few Christians believe that, just as Romney and his supporters are offended by complaints about Romney's Mormonism, Christians are offended, and believe God could be offended, by the teachings of Mormonism."
Mrs. Pitt ended her letter by saying "I hope all Christians give their vote prayerful consideration because voting is a sacred privilege and a serious responsibility."
