The mother of film superstar Brad Pitt wrote an anti-gay letter to her local paper urging Christians to vote for Mitt Romney.

The letter was printed by the Springfield News-Leader Thursday and the newspaper said that it had verified that it was written by Jane Pitt.

Along with fiancee Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt is a staunch supporter of President Barack Obama and has long been an outspoken champion of gay rights. Pitt once told Ellen DeGeneres, "I’ve said that we would not be getting married until everyone in this country had the right to get married."

But the two  announced their engagement in April, after seven years and six children together.

The Missouri newspaper first printed an editor's note denying any relation between the letter writer and movie star. That was later replaced with a second editor's note, reading, "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."

The letter — itself a response to another opinion piece in the newspaper justifying Christians' rights to refuse to vote for Romney because he is a Mormon — identifies Mrs. Pitt as "a Christian [who differs] with the Mormon religion."

But, Pitt continues, "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."

Pitt writes that "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."
