BP This Week: Hugh Hefner and the Sexual Revolution

Hugh Hefner, founder of the Playboy empire and arguably the man most responsible for popularizing the sexual revolution, passed away at 91 on Wednesday. John Stonestreet and Ed Stetzer assess the damage of pornography and “free love,” and what they’ve done to perpetuate abortion and separate sex from marriage and procreation. Our hosts also tackle (ha!) President Trump’s ongoing feud with members of the NFL who’re protesting racial injustice by taking a knee during the national anthem.

    I very much doubt that Hugh Hefner was ever really happy. In his mind, he had to know that those girls really did not care for him, but were only interested in furthering their own agendas. That essentially makes them gold diggers, and prostitutes. The basis of any working society, has to be the structure of the family, and for whatever reason, Hefner apparently never understood that. I will leave the judgement up to the one who knows everything about everybody, and try to make sure that I keep my own life straight.
