"She puts the cult in pop culture," wrote media critic Mark Jurkowitz in The Phoenix

Hee hee.

I never thought of her as some type of "hyper-minister", but apparently many people look to her for spiritual guidance. How sad.

"She's a really hip and materialistic Mother Teresa," says Kathryn Lofton, a professor at Reed College in Portland, Ore., who has written two papers analyzing the religious aspects of Winfrey. "Oprah has emerged as a symbolic figurehead of spirituality."

Mother Teresa was neither "hip", nor "materialistic" and no one containing the aforementioned words should be likened to her...discuss...
