Brad Pitt Goes Against Mother and Says Gay Marriage 'is Inevitable'

During a recent movie screening in London Brad Pitt offered his opinion as to why he thinks his mother and conservatives are wrong when it comes to the issue of same-sex marriage, insisting that it "is inevitable."

Pitt has been a vocal supporter of President Obama as well as homosexuality and has stated before that he fully supports the legalization of same-sex marriage.

"I am an Obama supporter and I'm backing his election campaign," Pitt told reporters at the Mayfair Hotel in London during a screening of his new film "Killing Them Softly," according to The Telegraph.

"Gay marriage is inevitable. The next generation, they get it. It is just a matter of time before it becomes a reality," he added.

Pitt's comments are just the opposite of his mother's which took conservative tones regarding homosexuality- she stated that Christians should back presidential nominee Mitt Romney because of his faith and moral foundation.

"I hope all Christians give their vote prayerful consideration because voting is a sacred privilege and a serious responsibility," Jane Pitt previously wrote in an open letter to The Springfield News-Leader.

The letter was in response to an op-ed piece by Richard Stoecker which stated that Christians would not be able to vote for a Mormon or a candidate that supports abortion and homosexuality.

"I think 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 wrote in the letter.

"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," she added.
