Famous Lost Words: Larry Flynt


Flynt is publisher of more than a dozen adult magazines, including Hustler.
null In the epilogue of his autobiography, An Unseemly Man, Flynt says, “I have left my religious conversion behind and settled into a comfortable state of atheism. I have come to think that religion has caused more harm than any other idea since the beginning of time. The Jerry Falwells of this world are living proof of the hypocrisy that permeates organized religion in America and around the world.” Flynt dismisses his previous conversion to Christianity (since recanted) as the result of a manic-depressive episode.


  1. Religion has caused a lot of problems. Any time men start becoming religious they lose focus of God and shift the focus on their “good deeds”. They forget, or never really knew, what God is all about. In that respect, i understand why some people in this world don’t like religion.
    If Mr. Fylnt doesn’t like religion, i say fine. Good! Turn your back on religion, but don’t turn your back on God.
