William F. Buckley and Hugh Hefner discuss Judeo-Christian sexual ethics

By Abraham Piper

From the show Firing Line, 1966…

Buckley to Hefner:

The Judeo-Christian code, obviously, as we know, antedated Puritanism… So I’m not talking about whether or not you reject Cotton Mather’s accretions on the Mosaic law, but whether you reject the Mosaic law.

This is a remarkable conversation on a number of levels.
