Oprah: This Aussie asks you to stick to entertainment, not religion.

Oprah. This Aussie asks you to stick to entertainment, not religion, please.

Oprah has come to Australia but I have confession I'm not a fan.

Its not the over the top characterisation of an excitable and opinionated celebrity talk show host that she has made her own that I'm not keen about.
It is the religious cult leader role that she's made out to be.

Sure she'll have lots of people tuning in to see what she says and who is on her show and I'll admit she has worked up quite a production team and together they produce quite a show.
It is good entertainment and I don't have anything against that, nor do I have anything against her enjoying the same freedom of religion and freedom of speech that we all enjoy.
So what's my problem with Oprah?

I'm more interested in what her guests have to say than her religious views and comments and sermonising and speculation on things like what universal power unites or how this universal energy unites us all.

I'm not interested in what Mr E, Eckhart Tolle's religious teachings are about the niceness of the universal energy. I've make my own religious choice thank you and well look maybe it is trivial but taking religious advice from a guy like an “E-Toll” with lots of promises of a faster way to get where we want to go … yeh Turn It Up

Who is Eckardt Tolle (whatever the correct spelling is who knows???) I've found a few online variations
