Frank Sinatra — Disgrace Upon America!
By David J. Stewart
Frank Sinatra lived his life as a heathen. Any man who lives his life as if there's no God is a fool. Sinatra, through his worldly music, promoted booze, immoral sex, and a life without God. Without question Sinatra was a great entertainer and singer; howbeit, nothing in this life matters if a man dies in his sins without Jesus Christ as his personal Savior. As you will see for yourself, Sinatra was anything but a Christian.
Sinatra did a Playboy interview in February of 1963, in which he was asked if he was religious and believed in God. This was Sinatra's answer...
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.

It is clear from reading the entire interview with Mr. Sinatra that he was unable to decipher between religious hypocrites and genuine Biblical Christianity. I've read many comments, by many famous people, who all echo the same lack of understanding towards Biblical Christianity. Such critics have a strong tendency to group all religious faiths together and stereotype them as being hateful, bigoted and hypocritical. Certainly, this is NOT true of Biblical Christianity. The truth is that unrepentant sinners, who are running from God, have a strong bias AGAINST anyone who preaches the Word of God. Sinatra was one of them.
It was Frank Sinatra who popularized the Godless song, Chicago, in which he mocks the man of God, Billy Sunday (1862-1935)...
On State Street, that great street, I just want to say
They do things they don't do on Broadway
They have the time, the time of their life
I saw a man, he danced with his wife
In Chicago, Chicago my home town
Chicago, Chicago that toddlin' town
Chicago, Chicago I'll show you around - I love it
Bet your bottom dollar you lose the blues in Chicago, Chicago
The town that Billy Sunday couldn't shut down
Did you read that? ... THE TOWN THAT BILLY SUNDAY COULDN'T SHUT DOWN!
Some websites display the lyrics as "Billy's Sunday" or "Hilly Sunday," which evidences their ignorance of history. Sinatra was referring to the mighty evangelist, Billy Sunday, who took an uncompromising stand against the evils of the day; namely, booze, gambling, and dancing. Billy Sunday stood firmly AGAINST everything that Frank Sinatra lived his life for—wine, women and song. Honestly, Frank Sinatra wasn't worthy to shine Billy Sunday's shoes!
Some will argue that Sinatra didn't write the song, Chicago; however, he sang it, popularized it, and without any question... made it the hallmark song for the city of Chicago. It's an evil song, for an evil city, who cherishes a song that slanders, mocks and dishonors the greatest evangelist to ever set foot in Chicago. If you want to live like the Devil, Chicago is the place to go.
There's a street in Chicago named in honor of sex-pervert, Hugh Hefner, who's sicko Playboy empire is based in Chicago. Why honor such a despicable homewrecker? The show HeeHaw used to frequently honor Hugh Hefner, and then sing a Gospel song at the end. It's just sick!
Billy Sunday is slandered in Sinatra's song, Chicago, which epitomizes rebellion, love for sin, and rejection of God's man. Let me tell you something my friend, maybe Billy Sunday's preaching couldn't shut down Chicago's sinful lifestyle; but GOD ONE DAY WILL! No one is going to get away with anything...
“But I say unto you, That every idle word that men shall speak, they shall give account thereof in the day of judgment.” —Matthew 12:36
