Brad Pitt And Angelina Jolie's Potential Wedding RUINED By 'Fight Club' Star's Anti-Gay, Christian Family
Religion is tearing Brad Pitt and Angelia Jolie apart.
Which is ironic considering that Pitt, who was raised a Southern Baptist, is now an outspoken atheist.
Unfortunately, Brad's Christian background is coming back to bite him. The Enquirer reported that Jolie is disgusted by the anti-gay preachings of Pitt's childhood church, which the "World War Z" star's family is still active members of.
She now refuses to marry Pitt unless he does something about it.
"Angie is completely broken up over the situation involving Brad's family and their church," a source revealed. "It destroyed their plans for the wedding, at least for the time being, and had her in tears."
Pitt's mother, father, sister and brother are devoted members of the James River Church in Springfield, Missouri. The church's pastor, John Lindell, is a notorious gay basher, who argues that homosexuality is a wretched sin on par with gambling and greed.
Unsurprisingly, Lindell's message doesn't bode well with Angie, who is a vehement supporter of gay rights and gay marriage.
"Sobbing, she told Brad in no uncertain terms, 'If you won't talk to your family about this, I will!" the source said. "I'm not going to marry into a hateful situation like this!'"
Talking to the Pitts will likely have little effect, however, as the family is not only Christian—they are Christian anti-gay crusaders.
According to The Enquirer, "Obama supporters Jolie and Pitt were shocked when his 73-year-old mother Jane sent a letter to the Springfield 'News-Leader' newspaper praising Romney for his anti-abortion stance and his 'Christian conviction concerning homosexuality,' while harshly criticizing Obama."
When Angie heard about the letter, she apparently "freaked out" and was "almost tearing her hair out."
Not that Pitt's family cared. They are still loyal members of James River, even earning the admiration of none other than Mr. Lindell himself.
"They are regular church attendees," Pastor Lindell told the Enquirer. "They are awesome people. I've known (Brad's brother) Doug for years. As a family, they are deeply caring."
Pitt doesn't deny that religious people can be caring or that religions are useless. He does, however, hate gay-hating Christians.
"I don't mind a world with religion in it," Pitt said in 2011 interview. "There are some beautiful tenets within all religions. What I get hot about is when they start dictating how other people must live. You grow up in a religion like that and you try to pray the gay away. I feel sadness for people like that."
