Is Oprah Winfrey America's Pastor?

This is a very perceptive article from USA Today. While probing the New Age religiosity of Winfrey and her Joel Osteen-like evangel, cultural observers are quoted who see Miss Winfrey as contemporary America's leading guru and pastor.

I found it interesting that one of the specific examples the article cited was the prayer service held in Yankee's Stadium shortly at 9/11, a pan-religious service over which Winfrey presided.

The Christian Research Institute did a feature article on her a few years back called "Oprah Winfrey and Her Self-Help Saviors: Making the New Age Normal." It's available for reading on their website.

What's that Chesterton quote? Something like when you lose your belief in God, you don't believe in nothing... you believe in anything.
