''I'm running on the gay marriage, no religion, legalization and taxation of marijuana platform. I don't have a chance.''
Actor Brad Pitt on ''The Today Show'' taking about the possibility that he may run for Mayor of New Orleans. (The Today Show)
''I grew up in a religious family, a religious community. It just doesn't make any sense to me. It just doesn't work for me in the long run. You know, I never wanted to step on anyone else's religion and their beliefs, that's what's great about our country.... Like gay marriage. You have a group of people telling other people how to live their lives. And you can't do that.... [To the Christians watching the show], you really have to check what country you're living in, because the freedom that allows you to practice your religion, is the same freedom you're stepping on. That's not right.''
