Between Me And God

While some bad boys often praise God or contribute to their local church in hopes that their earthly sins are forgiven, Sinatra was a much more complex man when it came to religion.

In a 1963 interview with Playboy, he said, “I don't believe in a personal God to whom I look for comfort or for a natural on the next roll of the dice. I'm not unmindful of man's seeming need for faith; I'm for anything that gets you through the night, be it prayer, tranquilizers or a bottle of Jack Daniel's. But to me religion is a deeply personal thing in which man and God go it alone together, without the witch doctor in the middle.”
