Actor Brad Pitt and his mom don't see eye to eye on politics.

Jane Pitt came out in support of Mitt Romney in a letter to the editor of the Springfield (Missouri) News-Leader on Tuesday.

As a celebrity endorsement, Brad Pitt's mom isn't exactly A-list. Romney's already seen celebrity endorsements from country singer Trace Adkins, comedian Jeff Foxworthy, actor Kid Rock, and Donald Trump.

But Jane Pitt's endorsement does point to another issue percolating among Christian conservatives: Will they vote for a Mormon?

"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. 

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," wrote Jane Pitt in the Springfield News-Leader.
