Oprah, a symbol of American theology

This short YouTube clip about Oprah Winfrey has received more than 5 million views in the last month. While it is focused on revealing Oprah's spiritual beliefs, it should come as no surprise to anyone who knows about Oprah. (For more in depth and scholarly analysis of her beliefs, read this article by Albert Mohler.)

This video winds up saying more about American popular theology than it does about Oprah. She is popular simply because she voices what most Americans (unfortunately) believe in their hearts.
