Frank Sinatra’s views on organized religion were decades ahead of his time

The interview originally appeared in Playboy Magazine in 1963, and it demonstrates the timeless performer’s incredibly deep and evolved thoughts on organized religion – thoughts that rival many of today’s scholarly critics of faith.

I came across this old interview with Frank Sinatra recently, and needless to say, it was surprising.

The interview originally appeared in Playboy Magazine in 1963, and it demonstrates the timeless performer’s incredibly deep and evolved thoughts on organized religion – thoughts that rival many of today’s scholarly critics of faith.

Check out this excerpt:

Playboy: Are you a religious man? Do you believe in God?

Sinatra: Well, that’ll do for openers. I think I can sum up my religious feelings in a couple of paragraphs. First: I believe in you and me. I’m like Albert Schweitzer and Bertrand Russell and Albert Einstein in that I have a respect for life — in any form. I believe in nature, in the birds, the sea, the sky, in everything I can see or that there is real evidence for. If these things are what you mean by God, then I believe in God. But I don’t believe in a personal God to whom I look for comfort or for a natural on the next roll of the dice. I’m not unmindful of man’s seeming need for faith; I’m for anything that gets you through the night, be it prayer, tranquilizers or a bottle of Jack Daniel’s. But to me religion is a deeply personal thing in which man and God go it alone together, without the witch doctor in the middle. The witch doctor tries to convince us that we have to ask God for help, to spell out to him what we need, even to bribe him with prayer or cash on the line. Well, I believe that God knows what each of us wants and needs. It’s not necessary for us to make it to church on Sunday to reach Him. You can find Him anyplace. And if that sounds heretical, my source is pretty good: Matthew, Five to Seven, The Sermon on the Mount.

Playboy: You haven’t found any answers for yourself in organized religion?

Sinatra: There are things about organized religion which I resent. Christ is revered as the Prince of Peace, but more blood has been shed in His name than any other figure in history. You show me one step forward in the name of religion and I’ll show you a hundred retrogressions. Remember, they were men of God who destroyed the educational treasures at Alexandria, who perpetrated the Inquisition in Spain, who burned the witches at Salem. Over 25,000 organized religions flourish on this planet, but the followers of each think all the others are miserably misguided and probably evil as well. In India they worship white cows, monkeys and a dip in the Ganges. The Moslems accept slavery and prepare for Allah, who promises wine and revirginated women. And witch doctors aren’t just in Africa. If you look in the L.A. papers of a Sunday morning, you’ll see the local variety advertising their wares like suits with two pairs of pants.

Playboy: Hasn’t religious faith just as often served as a civilizing influence?

Sinatra: Remember that leering, cursing lynch mob in Little Rock reviling a meek, innocent little 12-year-old Negro girl as she tried to enroll in public school? Weren’t they — or most of them — devout churchgoers? I detest the two-faced who pretend liberality but are practiced bigots in their own mean little spheres. I didn’t tell my daughter whom to marry, but I’d have broken her back if she had had big eyes for a bigot. As I see it, man is a product of his conditioning, and the social forces which mold his morality and conduct — including racial prejudice — are influenced more by material things like food and economic necessities than by the fear and awe and bigotry generated by the high priests of commercialized superstition. Now don’t get me wrong. I’m for decency — period. I’m for anything and everything that bodes love and consideration for my fellow man. But when lip service to some mysterious deity permits bestiality on Wednesday and absolution on Sunday — cash me out.

Playboy: But aren’t such spiritual hypocrites in a minority? Aren’t most Americans fairly consistent in their conduct within the precepts of religious doctrine?

Sinatra: I’ve got no quarrel with men of decency at any level. But I can’t believe that decency stems only from religion. And I can’t help wondering how many public figures make avowals of religious faith to maintain an aura of respectability. Our civilization, such as it is, was shaped by religion, and the men who aspire to public office anyplace in the free world must make obeisance to God or risk immediate opprobrium. Our press accurately reflects the religious nature of our society, but you’ll notice that it also carries the articles and advertisements of astrology and hokey Elmer Gantry revivalists. We in America pride ourselves on freedom of the press, but every day I see, and so do you, this kind of dishonesty and distortion not only in this area but in reporting — about guys like me, for instance, which is of minor importance except to me; but also in reporting world news. How can a free people make decisions without facts? If the press reports world news as they report about me, we’re in trouble.

Playboy: Are you saying that . . .

Sinatra: No, wait, let me finish. Have you thought of the chance I’m taking by speaking out this way? Can you imagine the deluge of crank letters, curses, threats and obscenities I’ll receive after these remarks gain general circulation? Worse, the boycott of my records, my films, maybe a picket line at my opening at the Sands. Why? Because I’ve dared to say that love and decency are not necessarily concomitants of religious fervor.

Playboy: If you think you’re stepping over the line, offending your public or perhaps risking economic suicide, shall we cut this off now, erase the tape and start over along more antiseptic lines?

Sinatra: No, let’s let it run. I’ve thought this way for years, ached to say these things. Whom have I harmed by what I’ve said? What moral defection have I suggested? No, I don’t want to chicken out now. Come on, pal, the clock’s running.

    My gosh, Mr. Sinatra makes some intelligent statements, but not sure if I want to take advice from a narcissistic mobster who had people’s legs broken, committed adultery, got drunk, controlled people’s lives, worshiped fame and money over all else and cavorted with prostitutes.

    Decades ahead of his time? This is as old as the words “non serviam”, with a little Pontius Pilate’s “what is truth?” thrown in. This is nothing but the whiskied rantings of the village atheist who sadly slept through catechism, lived a life of womanizing and then tried to justify his immoral behavior by spouting tired banalities in Playboy. If ever there was a man in need of God and his Son, the Crucified Jesus, it was Sinatra. Judging by his Catholic funeral, he may have realized it at the end of his life. So too may you all – for those who seperate themselves from the love of God in this life find in eternity a separation that is final and complete.
    If you dare have the intellectual courage to go beyond trite cliches about Inquisitions and witch doctors, investigate the claims of the Catholic Church through the Catechism, Thomas Aquinas, Blaise Pascal, John Henry Newman, GK Chesterton, Peter Kreeft, Catholic Answers…

    “Decades ahead of his time”!?! As if what he says is a consensus now? He stated his opinion, which happens to be the same opinion some people have in 2014, and which happens to be the same opinion some people had in 1789. There’s nothing scholarly, or ahead-of-its-time about any of it (in fact, the idea that Christians burned down the Library of Alexandria is effectively an urban legend.)

    Well, you just described St. Augustine before he found his faith. I’m not sure a man’s character necessarily undermines the validity or eloquence of his arguments. As for the quality of Frank’s character – as a good example – reasonable minds may differ. As for your argument, your point is well taken but I think Sloe Moe concisely points to its weakness.

    Unlikely this is real or at least unedited. His reaction to the Pope’s photo being ripped-up in protest on Saturday Night Live seems unlikely if these are his true thoughts. Also, I’ve read and seen many interviews with the man and he’s never come off this articulate or forward-thinking.

    Of course I was shocked to read such profound comments from someone I thought of as a thug. But I never met Sinatra I never walked a mile in his moccasins. Maybe all I heard about him was a lie. Or on the other hand maybe his publicity agent or someone was paid to write the comments. All I can do is take them face value and not worry about who actually said them. Sinatra is dead anyway. I agree with the ideas expressed and find that they were expressed in a very sophisticated way.

    Interesting projection at the end of your reply. Sinatra merely says men of god, not christians per se. However, it is clear that anti-intellectualism played a serious role in the burning of the Library and this was a key element of Christianity.

    My Grandpa thought the same way. In his youth he was an Alter Boy in a Catholic Church. Later he decided the people of religion were hipercrits. Also, that God was a fragment of his imagination. Grandpa suffered social stigma. They claimed he hated God. How can you hate what doesn’t exist? Grandpa helped me form my creed. He was a very loving man. I believe he was surprised to discover himself in Heaven.=]

    Frank Sinatra did not say any of this. He was not an educated man, and whomever wrote this went far above and beyond any standard literary vocabulary. Playboy in the early 60’s sent their interview questions to the celebrity to be answered at their convenience. This is clearly a ghost writer at work… Show me evidence anywhere on video or audio tape of Sinatra speaking in any form similar to this…

    Completely indecent to mock a man’s position for the way he looked at the world. How indecent of you to judge atheist, which by the way sinatra just said he wasn’t. But if you want to prove something please demonstrate and/or ellaborate how you know the first thing about eternity, as a matter of fact tell us how you learned the first thing about death and what happens after (if anything)

  46. Keith Ziegler

The burden of proof beyond any reasonable doubt lies upon those claiming there is a God.

    You realise to an atheist you sound like a crazy loon when you talk about the Crucified Jesus as though that should carry some significance? He inferred in his article why he would have a catholic funeral – for the same reason he was afraid to be honest about his opinion of religion. Because of hateful bigots, of which the Christian Church (amongst others) specializes in producing. And by the way, the inquisition was not a cliche. It was a murderous cult of power thirsty, brutal, repressive bigots slaughtering the innocent in the name of their imaginary God.
    Here’s the deal, believe what you want, just don’t hurt anyone else, and keep your mumbo jumbo about crucified zombies saving my soul to yourself.

    Nothing new about the feelings of any intellectual man who does not belive in lies and fairy tales. What is unique is that Sinatra was not only an intelect he was very courageous to openly speak his mind. Considering his status and the era.

    The part that makes this ‘ahead of his time’ is the fact he spoke this opinion publicly. I am from his era – if you didn’t believe in god you kept your opinion to yourself and your mouth shut. The consequences for anyone who wasn’t as famous or well-loved as Frank Sinatra vocalizing this non-belief were catastrophic. Literally. Loss of family, job, reputation ensued.

    And I wouldn’t place too much credence to his having mafia ties. Back in the day you didn’t achieve success without them. It was how the world worked.

    Much like today’s Joni Ernst who sold her soul to the Koch Brothers for her shot at political success.

    Sounds nice but don’t forget that later he had his first marriage annulled by the Catholic Church. He then married his last wife in the Catholic Church and went back to mass. Tom Dreeson(sp.) who used to open for Sinatra went with him at times and said Sinatra used to do a reading at mass.

  88. Ed Mattson

    September 2, 2014 at 8:34 am

    Many have glossed completely over what is relevant and ahead of his time. That is not the ongoing argument about God, or practiced religion. No, what was ahead of his time, was his prophecy about if the news media presenting the news from a prepositioned or biased perspective. That leads to they themselves driving the consensus, instead of allowing the pubic to interpret the events themselves.

    Religion has always had believers and deniers. Detection of the beginning of the media expressing opinionated articles like we are experiencing today, was very much out front. Almost prophetic of him. He was very astute, as reality shows us. His theory was dead on target.

    There is nothing new under the sun. Sinatra was not “decades ahead of his time”, he was actually embracing philosophies and tenets of the Old Religion, which predates Christianity by millennia.

    I think most of you need to read this part again: Sinatra: No, wait, let me finish. Have you thought of the chance I’m taking by speaking out this way? Can you imagine the deluge of crank letters, curses, threats and obscenities I’ll receive after these remarks gain general circulation? Worse, the boycott of my records, my films, maybe a picket line at my opening at the Sands. Why? Because I’ve dared to say that love and decency are not necessarily concomitants of religious fervor.

  96. John Webb

    It probably was ghost written but you can bet your bottom dollar that it would have been read altered and read again before being approved by Sinatra himself. Most of us would run something by someone before publishing or proclaiming a difficult position. This I would suggest is just his thoughts clearly laid out with the help of others.

Sooo many of us accept what is reported in the ‘news’ instead of investigating the facts.

    2- it never supported Hitler; not sure what propaganda machine told you otherwise (fact: Hitler had Catholic priest executed and churches sacked.)
    3-you know nothing of religious practice; Catholics hold no one above anyone in the sense you paint. We do, however, rely on a leader, which (fact) we are not alone in doing.

    The man is talking about human character, how you can have good character and it not stem from a religious motive. Therefore, his character is fair game. He lived what he’s preached in this article and it clearly failed.

    Such a profound view expressed so intelligently. I’m not convinced it was Sinatra who wrote this but that doesn’t take away the message behind it.

    I agree that this opinion, if it truly originated from Sinatra in his era, was ahead of its time. Honestly, its still a bit ahead of its time now. Socially atheism is a lot more accepted but I’ve still lost friends over it because they feel being ‘Godless’ is horrible.

    Still though, while Frank was happy to accept organized religion in some capacity as whatever it takes to get people through their days… I have to comment that one recent thing that bothers me about deeply religious folks is the lack of tolerance. Not just in homosexuals, but the small minority of religious people who wanted to ban Harry Potter. Also, Black Jesus (A show on Adult Swim) had swarms of them trying to boycott the show. That sort of stuff bothers me.

  133. Terrence

    September 2, 2014 at 4:31 pm

    It’s interesting that people express scepticism at Sinatra being “well read”, because he used words like ” opprobrium” and “obeisance”. One should recall that the members of his generation had books, instead of the 24/7 entertainment glut that current generations enjoy, at the expense of their vocabulary and intellect.
    Fifty years ago, there were 3 networks ABC, CBS and NBC…period.
    His comments to the interviewer about blowback from these remarks demonstrates the strangle hold religion had (has) on rational thought.

    Just like there’s no need to judge the lifestyles of some Christians to prove the wisdom of Christianity. Much like Sinatra believed in “decency and love” but didn’t always show it, so do plenty of Christians believe in the teachings and example of Christ while failing to live up to them.

    I think those who criticize Sinatra have missed the point he was making. Did he resent organized religion because he didn’t agree with it’s ideology? No. Did he resent it because he was unable to live according to that ideology? It seems not. He resented it because those who were in the Christian hierarchal leadership commited terrible atrocities, while justifying these sins as necessary to revere God and promote the church’s legitimacy. Those leaders were pious hypocrites, who urged more righteousness from their congregants than they displayed, themselves.

    Many of the comments on this thread perfectly exemplify the hypocrisy Sinatra was railing against. Anyone resorting to name calling and denogration in their comments should read his answers again. The man explained his relationship with God, how he finds God in nature and in human beings. He also said he understands the comforting need for faith, but that decency is not dependent on church attendance. Sinatra even illustrates his position by referencing the words of Jesus via the gospel of Matthew. I happen to agree that if you call yourself a Christian, the only true commandment is the Golden Rule, love thy neighbor as you love yourself, treat others how you want to treated.

    Cathryn, it’s not that the church is full of hypocrites, it’s that we’re all screw ups. We have a difficult time trying to follow ten simple commandments. Jesus Christ made it simple for us to remember the ten commandments by condensing it down to two. God knows we’re screw-ups so he gave us the sacrament of reconciliation. It’s not just saying your sins to a priest then doing your penance and you’re out the door. It’s also counseling, helping you to stop doing things that’s not only offensive to God, but also offensive to your family, friends, or anyone.

    Chad, you, and many others who share your thoughts on the Catholic Church really need to back up your claims and statements with reliable facts. I agree there was the sex abuse scandals within the church and there is so much more in the public school system. The church had a concordat with Hitler and his government, which still stands today. The church, both Catholics and Protestants, denounced Hitler and his final solution. The idea that the Catholic church supported Hitler started in the 1960’s with some play. If you want to know how the church treated the Jews during WWII, find out what prominent Jews during that time frame, and immediately after it said about the Pope and the Catholic church. Some of it may be negative but you might be surprised by what you find.

He could not have risen to the power which he held without that. I do agree that Playboy at times would “punch up” an article. But the ideas and philosophy forwarded there are those of the man quoted. I’m an historian of popular music and those who changed it from the 1930’s thru 1960’s. Trust me in this, the Sinatra I have read about was deeply spiritual but not religious.

    One way to solve all of this. Prove to everyone using true evidence that god exists…, not using the bible or other RELIGIOUS book, scroll, etc… that he exists, being as such that you cannot prove the existence or truth of something by using that item itself. BTW “faith” doesnt count either. i have faith that if you burn hydrogen and oxygen together you get water, but I can PROVE that faith with evidence by the act of doing it. Especially since if you use actual existing historical records even the bible is proven false when it cones to people existing/ruling etc.

    Sad how nasty gossip is taken as fact. Of course he was smeared with views like that. Smearing their detractors is the forte of the church. Nasty, malicious…unconscionably bearing false testimony and judging without good cause…based solely on gossip. Justifying hate via malicious discrediting lies in the name of god is exactly what Sinatra was referring to.

    True, there are bad religions, more to the point of the responsibility to search for God’s sanctioned church. As the New Testament says, ” one Lord, One faith, one baptism. There are many good churches in the world. I believe there is one true church, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints

    So agree with your comment. As well, we were taught to “drink his blood” and “eat his body”. Really? Eat the body of a 2000 year old dead man? Riiiiggghhhttt….

    The absolute worst, modern blood ritual is the Catholic Trans-substantiation during Mass. Cloaked in shadowy, psuedo-intellectual idiocy, and foisted upon children (children!) at impressionable early ages. How very sick. Only a Roman created God-Man myth would involve some type of blood ritual. What idiocy.

    Even as an 11 yr old, I began to question this Catholic ‘sickness’, all my years thinking it was ME who was wrong to doubt. By 30, I had pretty much gone through ‘withdrawal’ (because leaving Catholicism is quite like quitting a hard drug).

    Imho, religion has set Humanity’s progress back at least 2500 years. How sad.

    Doesn’t matter Phil. The RCC set itself up as a Moral vanguard, and even suggested that the Pope was ‘infallible’ on Earth. Sorry, no. Fail. There is no argument to make at this point in history which can in any manner apologize for the terrible influence the RCC has had on Humanity’s course on this Earth.

    No agency can set itself up as an Authority of God’s Love, then molest children by abusing that trust. In a just world, at the first validated existence of child molestation (now decades ago), the UN would have declared the RCC an outlaw organization, seized it’s assets, revoked the sovereignty/statehood of the Vatican City and barred the RCC from continuing to practice in any of it’s member nations.

    Your comment about faith and being able to prove that faith with evidence by the act of doing, completely goes against what faith means. Faith is to beleive, or trust in something with the logical proof. I think true Christians have faith that God does exist without needing that proof. And why would you need proof? Look at all the wonders in each and every day of your life. That’s your proof.

    Agnosticism and atheism refer to different philosophical concepts. Agnosticism refers to personal opinions on knowledge. An agnostic says, I can never be 100% sure, a gnostic says, I am certain. Atheism and theism, however, refer to belief in a deity. Any person who does not believe in a deity is an atheist. Any person who does is a theist. One can either be an agnostic atheist, An agnostic theist, a Gnostic atheist, or a Gnostic theist. There is no middle ground. you can not both believe and not believe at the same time.

    September 5, 2014 at 10:33 am

    With regard to this article on organised religion, whether it was Sinatra or not, I have to agree with a lot that was said. Now in reply to your comment my following
    comment will not prove God exist because you cannot prove my word. However this is my testimony. I was born into the Catholic religion like most babies of the world are born into a religion, which we call indoctrinated into a faith. I left the Church around 18 and lived my life according to me and I ended up frustrated, angry and I didn’t like myself and unfortunately could not escape myself as I am not one for drugs or alcohol or prescribed medication, I was 27 1/2 and luckily I came to my senses at a New Years Eve party after meeting 2 Catholics who reeked “peace” and I knew what was missing – it was God, but this time I didn’t want religion I wanted to research and find truth. After 14 months solid study and seeking with my whole being I came to the conclusion that Jesus was God in the flesh, that He ate, He talked,He lived among mankind, revealed Himself and died for me on the cross for the forgiveness of sin and reconciliation. After coming to this final conclusion that Jesus is who He said He was I was certainly not expecting what happened next,simply because I didn’t believe it could happen but I was in the presence of God Himself in my room, I could not see Him as He is spirit, I also had what felt like oil being poured inside of me and His love was penetrating, you could actually experience and feel the love. He is so loving, so humble and so gentle that the depth of it is immeasurable. I could not stop crying and saying “sorry, thank you” and “why is our heart so far away from your heart?” as what I thought was good does not compare to Him, He truly is the only One who is good. He walked with me for 6 days, I didn’t eat, I didn’t need to, He sustained me. When I went out in the public shops I got to “see” His response, He loves everyone, He doesn’t gossip or judge, He cries for those who are sick and disabled, He hurts when another human will not help another in the smallest way. On the 7th day He left and I thought I had sinned but He has given me the Holy Spirit who has taught me and led me and corrected me over the past 25 years since. I have come to know by my experience that the following Bible verses are true statements,
    “that those who diligently seek Him with their whole body, mind and soul will find Him” and “we are like filthy rags in the sight of God”, that’s what I felt like in His presence but He didn’t judge me instead poured out His love into me, because I had accepted and received Jesus and the Cross.
    Lastly He asked me to go tell people that He loves them and for them to come out of ignorance and into the knowledge of Him. I hope you will take a sincere search for God and have your own unshakable experience too.

    I do find it odd that this is turning up on many sites (google and bing searches) as “recently rediscovered” material. Must be a slow news day, as the website linked published the interview in 2006.

    He spoke of Fox News before he could have know about the travesty it is:
    “We in America pride ourselves on freedom of the press, but every day I see, and so do you, this kind of dishonesty and distortion not only in this area but in reporting — about guys like me, for instance, which is of minor importance except to me; but also in reporting world news. How can a free people make decisions without facts? If the press reports world news as they report about me, we’re in trouble.”

    John your a moron, science doesn’t prove those things. They are theories, at this point in time, with the information we have, they are the best answers. Science is always will to change with no information. Religion isn’t. Gravity is a theory. If tomorrow we found out that there was a better explanation, the theory of gravity would be disproved.

    Let’s make this a bit more clear…

    “Any person who does not believe in a deity is an atheist. Any person who does is a theist.”

    Not quite…

    Any person who does not believe in a deity… According to his or her opinion on what this deity is… Is a person with an opinion… Who then may claim to be something that doesn’t actually exist… That being an atheist.

    Any person who does believe in a deity… According to his or her opinion on what this deity is… Is a person with an opinion… Who then may claim to be something that doesn’t actually exist… That being a theist.

    The interesting thing is that both must believe — as in, be engaged in the act of believing.

    And it is at this common point — the act of believing — that religion cannot enter a person’s thought, other than through choice.

    Meaning… Believing is directly related to a person’s choice.

    Which… Would you know it… Is what the Judeo/Christ scriptures declare.

    No, not religion… Just the scriptures.

    Science has the proof for all of those things. It’s called physics and the proof is built on the labor of the scientists who worked hard at demonstrating it. Religion is built on imagined revelations. Science shows its work not just its answers. Science bends to new information, while religion shuns it in order to protect its aire of infallibility. That alone makes religion a sham. Have faith in the lies if it makes you feel better, but I’ll take my advice from the people who can prove what they say and who allow me to add to the conversation with new proofs.

    Your argument, sir is the one that fails. It fails because you have attempted to ignore facts in order to maintain your premise. Science has theorized of many unseen things, which all have been demonstrated, including those in your list.

    When you say “science accepts..multiple universes,” you’re implying “science is certain of the truth of multipe universes,” which is completely false. It’s a straw man: you’re trying to equate science with religious faith.

    First of all, science does NOT prove. Proof is the realm if mathematics and formal logic, not science. In science, you have varying degrees of confidence (a new concept, John?) in an idea depending on the quantity and quality of evidence that supports that idea.

    Your statement makes no sense whatsoever. The idea of multiple universes solves some problems in astrophysics if it is true, and it is mathematically plausible. That does not mean that any scientist is certain that it’s true. Far more evidence will have to be found to support the idea before it progresses beyond the speculative.

    Do you see how science differs from religion?

    And yet, the idea of multiple universes is no wackier than the idea of a creator god. In fact, the god idea cannot be tested, so it’s even more ridiculous.

  247. Lissa

    September 10, 2014 at 5:32 am

    I thought I had a very unique and rare experience because I had never met or read or believed you could actually find God in a real tangible way, however when I began to share what had happened to me among a few new Christian ladies at a home for a birthday party, they just smiled and nodded their heads reminiscing back to their experience with God, I was amazed that they too had this similar experience. Also, 4 years ago my brother had the same experience and he told me “For the past 20 years you would talk about God, I thought good for you but I’m okay thanks, not for me” Now he says to me “I just wish that everyone would come and experience this, the love of God is so amazing, but they just don’t want it”.
    I replied, “I know, I feel the same. God is so beautiful and your life is never the same, even in the trials and tribulations the peace and joy and trust in Him is unshakable, you would never go back to your old life would you?”
    The change in my brother is so beautiful and I would confess by the worlds standard he was a good law abiding person before his encounter with God, but the difference in his countenance and confidence is dramatic, he is God centered not self-centered, loves doing acts of kindness, talks to anyone, loves reading the Bible, attends Church, everyone who knows him comments that Todd is amazing, he is so different. He allows the Holy Spirit to work through him and he and others are benefiting from it. I am so over joyed every time I see him knowing we are finally on the same page. You can ask me any question you like if I can answer it I will. God bless you too.

    If Frank received any backlash over this, I’ve never heard of it. In contrast, three years later, when John Lennon, referring to the Beatles’ popularity, said they were “bigger than Jesus” — a figure of speech, not a boast by any means — many of their records were publicly burned and Lennon had to “apologize” for that misconstrued remark while on tour in the U.S. Wonder what Sinatra thought of that.

    Mental illness causes all of those sensations, feelings, and thoughts. You are simply interpreting your internal mental queues as being from God when in reality they are from your brain. If the idea of a “God” helped you than I am happy for you, but to put that much weight on something intangible and 100% imaginable is not always the best or right way to sort through mental health issues. Take a look at your parents and you will see where all of your confusion, dysfunctions, delusions, allusions, disorders, etc. came from. All parents pass on their mental disorders, illness, and dysfunctions to their children, hence the phrase “the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.” 1 in 4 adults has some form and degree of diagnosable mental illness, disorder, dysfunction, or affliction almost always caused from receiving poor parenting or from childhood trauma, abuse, or neglect to some degree. The problem is that everyone is also taught to “respect your parents” even when they don’t deserve it, at the same time everyone is taught “respect must be earned.” We have all been brainwashed with oxymorons while cementing into us to never question our parent’s responsibility for the way we turned out. Personality disorders all come from our parents or caregivers. Our brains, personality, ways of thinking, feeling, and behaving, all come from our environment when we were between the ages of 0 and 27.

    You clearly missed this fact: “Over 25,000 organized religions flourish on this planet, but the followers of each think all the others are miserably misguided and probably evil as well.” But he should have added “the followers AND MEMBERS of each religion think that all others are miserably misguided……”

    Frank Sinatra had his first full Catholic marriage annulled. He had a second wife but it was a civil union. After his first marriage was annulled by the Catholic Church which took alot of money, he remarried his 3rd wife in the Catholic Church. Thereby insuring a Catholic funereal. I bet all that really ticked off St. Peter at the Golden Gates. By the way, I was raised a very strict Catholic.

    Frank Sinatra had left the Catholic Church at this time of his life. He later had his first Catholic marriage annulled, his second civil marriage did not matter, he renewed his 3rd marriage vows in the church. Thereby insuring being buried with full church services but of course you cannot buy yourself a place in heaven, and he must have really pissed off St. Peter. Only God knows where his soul is….

You had your chance a long time ago. We call that time The Dark Ages. You’ve held us back for long enough and now you’ve been reduced to clutching at straws, while the bigoted religious leaders have one hand on your tiny, easily manipulated “minds” and the other on your wallets. Try following the social laws as laid out in the bible and you’ll find yourselves locked up quicker than you can say:

    Excuse me, but Ben Franklin left school at the age of 12, and was close friends with the Governors of NY and Penn while he was still a teenager. He also confessed that he was not a good orator, but man could he write! Plus there is plenty of evidence that Frank was a very bright individual.

    20Feb15…..Frank wasn’t very bright at all. Yes, he could speak…but only in the movies where he had plenty of time to study and remember his lines. Also, with time and importance he was able to ‘ ad lib. ‘ His lack of brightness allowed him to leave his first wife Nancy to run off with someone else…..his kids hated him for this. He even married Mia Farrow when he was 107 and she was 12 for God’s sake. That lasted a coupla months. In addition, he married Ava Gardner ( who saved his sorry arse by getting him a role in ………..where he garnished an Oscar for best-supporting actor. )…..but he couldn’t hold onto her as she was more so into living in Spain and frolicking around with the bull fighters. Frank had no nerve for that one…..

    Sinatra was an avid reader throughout his lifetime. As an adult, he suffered from long stretched of insomnia, and would stay up until the wee small hours of the morning, reading anything and everything he could get his hands on to alleviate the boredom. Have you ever seen “The Manchurian Candidate”? The wide variety of books laying around Major Marco’s apartment was based on Sinatra himself. And after reading the novel, not the screenplay, “From Here To Eternity”, he saw himself as the only actor who could portray Maggio, and lobbied heavily for the role.
    As for him leaving school at an early age, well, you must have never read a book yourself. Frank was born in 1915, and lived in a relatively poor, working class section of Hoboken, New Jersey. Not many people finished grade school back then, let alone high school or college. The normal decision was to dropout as a teen and find a job that helped support you and your family. Luckily Frank was a natural singer, and he used that ability to earn money, while also teaching himself through reading, listening, and talking with others. He was “bright” enough to notice Tommy Dorsey’ technique of playing long, unbroken passages on the trombone through breath control, and devising a way to translate that to his vocals.Every Capitol concept album he recorded was imagined and organized by him ~ he chose the theme, and picked the songs to fit it.
    Because he was a hard drinker, a fighter, and a womanizer, people assume that he was also less than intelligent, but in concluding so, it says more about your bias and narrow world view than it does Sinatra. Being smart and acting impulsively are not mutually exclusive behaviors.The man lived life on his own terms ~ and yes, he hurt some people along the way, but history is filled with brilliant narcissists and egomaniacs who don’t always act according to the mundane standards of a bland, frightened society.
    BTW, doesn’t the bible teach to be tolerant, forgiving, and not to judge others? You might want to give that book a read before you make another foolish comment.

    14May15…..It was Ava Gardner who ‘ got ‘ Frank the part in From Here To Eternity. Nothing more. Nothing less.
    Frank’s mother swore worse than a dockside stevedore and carried out abortions at the time. Make no wonder her ‘ little boy ‘ grew up with no scruples. Frank ‘ deserted ‘ his first wife Nancy and having been Baptized into the Roman Catholic Church, he went against his ‘ sacred vow ‘ in marriage to Nancy ‘ to have and to hold, in sickness and in health, for better or for worse, until death us do part. ‘
    Frank couldn’t keep his drawers up. Why, even Howard Hughes who owned most of ‘ the Strip ‘ in Vegas during these times had Frank thrown out of the Sands on his ear for being drunk, arrogant, belligerent, and wanting ‘ more money ‘ to continue gambling. Howard was having none of it. You need to read up on these things. Truth is sometimes stranger than fiction. In addition, Frank was an arsehole. While on one hand he would help somebody out, on the other he would take someone down either with words or deeds. Frank would settle for ‘ nothing less ‘ than being the leader of the Rat Pack. He ‘ cried ‘ like a baby and Dean Martin in particular said ‘ Frank, if it means that much to you, take it. ‘ Everyone knew that when it came to comedy – which is what the Rat Pack was all about – it was Dean that kept the show on its feet…..while Frank believed he was the group by himself and spent his time ‘ packing Angie. ‘
    Yes sir, ‘ ol Blue Eyes sure knew how to keep ’em guessin’. Especially his family. Young Nancy, even today, is looking after the farm in order to live in the style she has become accustomed to. These boots were meant for walkin’ all over anyone or anything in order to make it so.
    Frank Sinatra…..bah, humbug…..nonsense. Wherever Frank is now, he needs all the help he can get to clean the record…and we don’t mean ‘ Sun ‘ Records tooooooooooooooooooooooo…..Go figure…

    also you have the audacity to assume a ‘god’ is YOUR chosen monotheist diety,when in fact there could well be an infinite set of possibilities you haven’t and could not in this form begin to imagine which far surpass the senses with which you guage the world around you.the creator of the universe more likely than not has nothing to do with the fables you’ve accepted as fact based on your bias of fear and childish need for wish fulfillment,no one knows and that is fine.life needs mystery.be at peace with yourself and realize that life is nature and not the social constructs of collective men.cherish this beautiful ephemeral existence because once your heart stops beating the only thing left are your deeds and actions.

    a dupe for the dopes to keep them in line chasing the carrots of fear,ego and acceptance,and yet 2000 years later you still pull that cart never having tasted of the fruit (or vegetable in this case). snap out of it and get some truth by way of perspective which relies on reason and not emotion,you are not a child anymore and no one is coming to save nor is there a need for anyone to,if you need a fractured fairytale to provide you a moral compass then you need a sit and a long think.

    Of course the person who puts forward a contention that something is real bears the responsibility of supporting it.

    The fact is you also believe this to be true, but give yourself a self-serving exemption for the gods of your religion.

    If not being able to disprove something made it exist then Vishnu would be equally as real as the Jesus god, as well as every other god in every other religious system of all time.

    You don’t believe in Vishnu because there is no proof of his existence. I take the same line of reasoning, but go one god further to include yours.

    Bottom line disproving the existence of nothing isn’t possible, and there is no logical or empirical reason to think the invisible extraplanar Jesus god is any more real than nothing (or any of the other god systems).

However, this put Frankie in debt to the ‘ boys ‘ so much so that when he welched on the deal they had his son kidnapped and eventually got some money out of it. Frankie tried to hide in the bosom of JFK….but became frightened schidtless when the mafia got JFK in their crosshairs for ‘ shagging ‘ one to many women who turned out to be the girlfriend of one of the head hunchos.

    There was nothing “ahead of his time” about these comments. These have been standard, facile criticisms of religion for a long time, and many of such criticisms are just historically ignorant, such as the oft uttered myth that Christianity has been the source of most of the wars of history (one just needs to list off all the wars they can think of to see how wildly wrong that myth is), or his unsubstantaited claim that religion has made many more steps backwards than steps forward. These are just ignorant atheist platitudes abd bumper sticker slogans that are contradicted by a rudimentary study of history. Christianity for one has been a civilizing force that eliminated child sacrifice, blood feuds in Europe, slavery, propelled the progressive and civil rights movements, was the source of countless pieces of artwork, music and history, inspired scientists to understand the handiwork of God, kept writing alive in Europe, and inspired countless charitable movements, etc.

Having said that, he did spend some time with Jackie ‘ O ‘ ( the woman who would Never marry again after Jack was killed …….people don’t know that her and JFK were discussing divorce at the time of his expiring ).

Some of the Kennedys ( from Robert Kennedy Sr. ) family spent plenty of time with Frank…albeit not drinking with him, but watching him drink. It was the style back then including lighting up a cigarette. Drinks and smokes went together. As previous owners of clubs and bars prior to the ‘ politically correct ‘ arseholes who have showed up in the past 25 years. How many of these clubs, lounges, and bars had to close up shop and thousands of people were left jobless. Never mind the hundreds of thousands of tobacco workers in foreign countries who no longer work in harvesting ‘ as much ‘ tobacco. But Frank sure kept the industry humming besides humming along with Ada…….Go figure…

Kudos to Sinatra for being up-front about religion, especially more than 50 years ago. He was also extremely generous, giving away hundreds of millions of dollars “just because.” He was not a perfect man and not necessarily a great singer, but he was (and still is) “Da Man.” R.I.P., Crooner.

You need to readup some more on ‘ ol Blue Eyes. But it is true that he was ‘ bangin ‘ 2 waitresses at a time on the Strip in Vegas. This got him to be copied in The Godfather. His name preceded him wherever he went and he went so far as to advise Bobby Kennedy that Bobby’s brother John F. Kennedy had to ‘ knock it off ‘ when he was droppin’ his drawers to mafia dons’ women . Of course, Frank got the message via Bobby that JFK wanted nothing else to do with him. This put Frank into a ‘ tizzy ‘ and he hated the Kennedys from that point onwards…..

    10Dec15…..Now, don’t you try to tell Bob Loblah that Michaelangelo’s belief was a waste of time.
    ,,,and in modern times that Neil Armstrong was just ‘ too far out of touch ‘ to believe in GOD…….Go figure….BobLoblah

    Mr Lobiah – you dont have to believe in a Supreme God to look into the Universe and feel In awe of Nature – to be Spiritual !
    Michaelangelo was paid to paint/ chisel the pretty subjects demanded by the rich and powerful Pope. Whether he believed the Catholic Doctrine or just played along for the Facilities, the Job and the warm companionship of his Handsome Buddies is questionable.
    As to Neal Armstrong he was launched out of NASA in Houston Texas, fer Gods sake! It was 1969 – a time when NO ONE except the courageous, Madelin Murray O’Hare dared question Christianities God based fairy tales. And Madelin, along with her young Son and Daughter were savagely murderded by Knife and buried in barrells, for their 1964, Athiest challenges against forced Religion in our Public Schools. – Killed by Timothy McVei like, God believing Christians !
    Kind of like the the Allah persuading Bombers and Gun firing Religionists we see on TV today and almost every day !

    — Look at the Stars –
    – be one with the Universe
    – there in no God !

    Of course, churches should be tax just like any other organization that has a business and expendses. The business of a church is to spread it doctrim. So, go do it and keep a record of your expenses . If you have anything left at the end of the year, pay taxes on it. But a good church will have spend its money on working with its people and the groups they help: homeless, parentless, ill, helpless, needy, etc. Buy what you need but put a ceiling on salaries and on types of bonus and have a group of church members each year keeping up with a budget proposed by the members and the leaders. NO leader of a church should make millions of dollars. No church should own wealth beyoung a reasonable. It is time to look at fraud and kick out lies and fraud.
