Hulk Hogan Leans on His Faith

posted by dross

hulkhoganpic.jpgWrestler and reality TV star Hulk Hugan has been in the news a lot the last couple of days for a quote he recently gave Rolling Stone magazine during an interview about his pending divorce from wife Linda.
The quote: “I could have turned everything into a crime scene like O.J., cutting everybody’s throat…I totally understand O.J.. I get it,” Hogan says, was taken out of context.
In a video interview with TMZ (from his car) Hogan said that Rolling Stone leaked only part of the quote in order to “sell magazines.” He also said he is relying on his faith during these tough times.

[I’ve] leaned on my religion. I was saved when I was 14. I accepted Christ as my savior. He died on the cross and paid for my sins….I found some very good friends–Michael Beckwith with the Agape Church told me about being positive and the power of positive thinking. I could have went the wrong way. I could have self-destructed, but I took the high road. [Rolling Stone] took half a sentence to sell magazines.

There’s no denying that the media often sensationalizes events and takes quotes out of context to get viewers or readers or page views, but what do you think of Hogan’s response? Do you think he’s genuine? Or should he have never even mentioned the name O.J.?
***By the way, RollingStone.com is no longer featuring all of the print magazine’s full-length articles. I haven’t picked up the new edition yet (it hit newstands today) so I have not seen the actual quote. If you have a copy, post the full O.J. quote from the interview below so we can discuss.

    I think the magazine should have focused on Mr. Hogans faith not his feelings. Anger is a great motivator but I think he was only verbalizing his feelings in a way that would show how hurt and angry over his situation that he is.I think OJ is got a whole different mentality than Hulk and it would take his mentality to actually kill somebody verses saying you feel like killing somebody.

    I would hope that we learns the difference between leaning on “religion” and the Value of a true “relationship” with GOD. People cannot give what they don’t have… and the source of our strength and ability to forgive andto be renewed resides in our unlimited power source… Jesus.
    Greater is He that is in us.. than he who is in the world. Jeremiah 33:3 “Call unto Me, and I will tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know”.

    Hulk Hogan did an appearance in Walker: Taxas Ranger and he clearly gave a gopsel message for salvation thru Jesus Christ. He played a reformed gang member. He did a good job in this episode.
