Adjective: Making a show of being morally superior to other people. Feigning piety or righteousness
Brad Pitt has a new movie out and he’s been running around promoting it like mad.
RadarOnline.com reports that on today’s edition of the Ellen Degeneres TV talk show, Pitt was asked why he hasn’t married Angelina Jolie, despite having sired three kids and adopted others with her.
This is what Pitt gave as his lame excuse:
“I’ve said that we would not be getting married until everyone in this county had the right to get married. We live in this great country that is about freedom. It is defined by our freedom and equality and yet we allow this discrimination to go on everyday and that’s not what we’re about — that’s not what makes us great. Until that is reversed, I just don’t get it.”
Degeneres, who is a lesbian, asked, “So that means if like, next week if it’s legal for everyone to get married that you would then be getting married the very next day?”
“It seems,” Pitt said, before he crumbled, confessing that “The kids are putting on the heat. They really are. They are putting on the heat.”
“You’ll still hold out?” Degeneres said.
“Somebody help me,” Pitt panicked. “I don’t know what the future holds!”
Those who believe that’s Brad’s reason for not marrying, please raise your hand!
Stop using gays as your crutch. Listen to your kids, Brad. They have better sense — and a God-given knowledge of right and wrong — than you.
