Winfrey's Influence Slammed By Baptist Editor
The editor of a Baptist newspaper has accused talk show queen OPRAH WINFREY of leading American Christians astray. James A. Smith Sr., the executive editor of the Florida Baptist Witness, claims Winfrey uses her radio network to promote "anti-biblical" doctrine. Smith singles the media mogul out for her support of author and new age guru Marianne Williamson, who has appeared on Winfrey's TV show and radio channel. Smith writes in the newspaper: "In America's celebrity-driven culture, perhaps the most harmful 'Pied Piper' of heresies leading millions astray is Oprah Winfrey. "Her adoption of anti-biblical doctrine is on display every day this year through her satellite radio network channel Oprah + Friends. "It's time for Christians to 'just say no' to the big 'O'."
