Brad Pitt's Brother Defends Mom's Anti-Gay Letter (Video)

Brad's younger brother Doug has barely made a blip after starring in Virgin Mobile Fair Go Bro campaign, and he's already using his pseudo celebrity status to settle some stuff for his mom.
The controversy started last weekend when Jane Pitt penned a an anti-gay, anti-Obama letter to Missouri's Springfield News-Leader. Here's an excerpt of what she wrote:
"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."
Obviously, that bit of news isn't doing any PR favors for her sons. Brad Pitt, who has a long history of voicing his support for LGBT rights, has yet to comment about the letter. But Doug did say something about it during an appearance on NBC's Today show to promote Virgin Mobile's campaign. He told host Matt Lauer:
"Moms and dads and kids agree to disagree all over the world, so why would our family be any different?... There can be healthy discussion when people disagree with you, and I think there should be. The bad thing is when it turns into venom and negativity and we don’t have that in our family. It’s open discussion, we can learn from each other … maybe you learn something.”
