The newspapers will, no doubt, carry long obituaries detailing the long and brilliant career of Charlton Heston, who died on Saturday in the company of Lydia, his wife of 64 years. Heston was a great actor, but that should not overshadow his efforts for human rights and responsibility. His efforts extended from in person support of the Reverend Martin Luther King in the 1960s (above, 1963) to his more recent presidency of the National Rifle Association and his advocacy of the US Constitution. As someone well placed in the entertainment industry, Mr. Heston was a strong critic of the cultural Marxism which allows that industry to defy the values of civilized man. We can only pray the God will be pleased to take to His bosom the man who played Moses, John the Baptist, and Michelangelo.
