Christians Claim Hugh Hefner Is Burning In Hell

Schadenfreude for Jesus: Many Christians believe Playboy founder Hugh Hefner is now burning in Hell.

Hugh Hefner is dead. The founder of Playboy magazine, died Wednesday at the Playboy Mansion in Los Angeles.  He was 91.

The self-described social justice warrior was a complex and influential figure who made a fortune promoting sexual liberation while sexually exploiting women for fun and profit.

However, for many Christians there is no moral ambiguity; for many Christians it is simple: Hugh Hefner is burning in Hell.

Voicing the sentiment of many Christians, Archpriest Vsevolod Chaplin, former deputy chairman of the Synodal Department for External Church Relations of the Moscow Patriarchate, and leading Russian cleric, commented on the death of Hefner, making it clear that he believes the founder of Playboy is burning in hell now:

After his death, Hefner went straight to hell, because he has never known what true Christian faith is. All who do not have faith are outside the kingdom of God, and their fate is absolutely clear.

The archpriest is not alone in his belief. A quick look at Twitter reveals a whole host of good Christians celebrating the fact that Hefner is now supposedly burning in Hell:

As for Hefner, he has been characterized as an “antagonistic agnostic,” who claimed that “religion is a myth,” and dismissed anyone who claimed to have “the answer”:

It’s perfectly clear to me that religion is a myth. It’s something we have invented to explain the inexplicable… What does it all mean — if it has any meaning at all? But how can it all exist if it doesn’t have some kind of meaning? I think anyone who suggests that they have the answer is motivated by the need to invent answers, because we have no such answers.

Bottom line: Hefner is not in heaven, nor is he in hell. He is simply dead. Full stop. In the end, there is no heaven, and there is no hell. Death is final, and that is tragedy enough. There is no afterlife. All we can do now is mourn the loss, and celebrate the life.
