Franklin Graham has never been one to shy away from the truth.
So I love to see when he chimes in on current events.
Unless you’ve been living in a cave recently, you know Hugh Hefner, the famous porno king, recently died. Many celebrated his life, but Franklin Graham was not one of those people. He chose to stand firm on truth, and
If you can’t read that, here’s what he wrote:
Hugh Hefner, who died yesterday, was asked by The New York Times in 1992 what he was most proud of in his life. His answer? “That I changed attitudes toward sex…That I decontaminated the notion of premarital sex. That gives me great satisfaction.” He wanted to be known as the one responsible for the sexual revolution. That’s a sobering thought. This was a revolution in direct rebellion against God’s Word and His laws. News reports also said that Hefner paid $75,000 years ago for the vault next to Marilyn Monroe so that he could “spend eternity with Playboy’s first cover girl.” This is a reminder to realize that where our soul—not our casket—is going to spend eternity is what matters most. That will be only one of two places—Heaven or Hell. Trusting Jesus Christ as Savior by faith is the only way to Heaven. God is the ultimate judge.
Exactly right! Thank you Mr. Graham for telling the truth!
For more on the seedy life of Hugh Hefner, here’s Fox News:
Asked by the New York Times in 1992 of what he was proudest, Hefner responded: “That I changed attitudes toward sex. That nice people can live together now. That I decontaminated the notion of premarital sex. That gives me great satisfaction.”
When he turned 85, he cheerfully observed, “You’re as young as the girl you feel.”
After a round of celebrity cheating by Tiger Woods and Jesse James was exposed, Hefner summed up his own attitude: “I had a lot of girlfriends, but it’s not the same as cheating. I don’t cheat. I am very open about what I do. … I think that when you are in a relationship, you should be honest. The real immorality of infidelity is the lying.”
His parents were strict Methodists and Hefner went to Chicago schools before joining the Army, attending the Chicago Art Institute and graduating from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana with a degree in psychology.
“Part of the reason that I am who I am is my Puritan roots run deep,” he told the Associated Press in 2011. “My folks are Puritan. My folks are prohibitionists. There was no drinking in my home. No discussion of sex. And I think I saw the hurtful and hypocritical side of that from very early on. ”
After working first as a copywriter for “Esquire” – where he reportedly left because he didn’t get a $5 raise – Hefner decided to start his own publication and he raised $8,000 from 45 investors to launch “Playboy” in December 1953. (He had originally planned to call it “Stag Night,” but was forced to change the name to avoid trademark infringement.)
It was produced in his kitchen and carried no date because he wasn’t sure there would be a second issue.
But with the trademark intuition and shrewdness that seemed to always ensure his success, Hefner had acquired a nude photo of Marilyn Monroe for the centerfold, taken before the start of her film career.
The magazine sold 50,000 copies, making it an immediate success. (Hefner later bought the crypt next to Monroe’s in a Los Angeles cemetery.)
“If you had to sum up the idea of Playboy, it is anti-Puritanism,” he was quoted as saying as the country’s mood became more hedonistic.
“Not just in regard to sex but the whole range of play and pleasure.”
In August 2016, Hefner sold the iconic Playboy Mansion for $100 million. The deal was contingent on the understanding that the Playboy founder would live in the Mansion until the time of his death.
