Hillsong Pastor: Why Did People Praise Hugh Hefner, Outraged by Harvey Weinstein?
Hillsong New York pastor, Carl Lentz, dropped by The Breakfast Club to talk about his new book, Own the Moment.
While there, hosts Charlamagne Tha God and Angela Yee asked him about the Harvey Weinstein scandals and why he preaches that pornography is wrong.
Lentz pointed out the absurdity of people who laud the late Hugh Hefner, a man who made millions off of pornography and sexual promiscuity, yet they readily condemn Harvey Weinstein, the Hollywood producer who used his position to harass and assault women sexually.
He said, “It’s interesting — on one hand we honor Hugh Hefner when he passes away who was a pornographer but yet Harvey Weinstein is this demon in culture right now. I think, ‘How could one thing be acceptable and then we not expect things like what Harvey Weinstein did to not be accepted for so long?’ In no way am I likening these two things together. I’m saying we have a culture that can’t pick which direction we want to go.”
Regarding pornography, Lentz said, “I think the evidence is there that pornography is destructive to anybody that’s involved with it. From what I’ve seen and from what I know, I don’t think it’s helping anybody. I think it definitely devalues what is right and what is holy. I think you can get to a point in culture where you’re so ingrained to think things are right, you know, we start to lose our sensitivity.”
