Re: Is Oprah the false prophet?

The very term that you attempt to apply to this woman indicates that you are rather wrapped up in the manipulative fear mongering fundamentalist Christian set.
Life can be really nice, positive and even joyful when you scrap the religious filters through which you view the world.
Admittedly, it is not necessarily an easy thing to do, but it is worth it.
Oprah plays on the credulous, the gullible, the vulnerable and the poorly educated. She does well out of that, she is able to back track easlily as in the case of the Tom Cruise couch jumping, which she was fine on, untill his profile crashed and she did a soft ball interview with him to give him and his nasty cult a bit of support up in his Colorado 'Eagles Nest' two years later. She pulled the same gag with Armstrong.
She is smart and savvy in terms of her comprehension of her business and how to manipulate her audience, many who seem to adore and worship her.
False Prophets? All prophets, all 'enlightened and blessed leaders' are false prophets.
I recommend that you sit and watch Hitchens, Dawkins, Fry, Grayling and Bertrand Russell et al. Do that for a week or two, they are all on you tube. Then go back and watch oprah, and you will see her for the shallow emotional manipulater that she is.
