Oprah’s promotion of porn and adultery shameful, says Christian attorney

A special counsel with the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) is blasting talk-show queen Oprah Winfrey for promoting pornography on her program.

On a recent show titled “237 Reasons to Have Sex,” Winfrey featured a number of so-called “experts” on marriage and intimacy. Among them was a woman who traveled worldwide experiencing one night stands — and then wrote a book about the experience. Another guest advocated the use of pornography for couples to enhance their marriage.

ADF special counsel Pat Trueman says it is shameful that Winfrey would advocate destructive behavior on her national talk show. “Shame on Oprah!” says Truman. “There are lots of children who watch the show. Many adults; many, many Christians; she’s got a loyal following because she does have good things on her show.”

But he argues that because of Winfrey’s status, giving a forum to people with what he describes as “anti-Christian” and “sinful” values only serves to popularize such behavior — and that encouraging adultery and pornography can only harm marriages.

“They had a show the same week on the bipolar disorder that many people suffer from,” notes the attorney. And he points out that in the past, Winfrey has aired shows examining the topic of pornography addiction. “She has shows on a variety of issues that are helpful, so she’s built up a solid reputation.”

Trueman suggests that Winfrey think twice before using her top-rated program to promote such things as adultery and pornography.

    Does this really surprise anyone. It should surprize any Christian at Oprah’s actions.

    She promotes “The Secret” and many other cultic or New Age ideology which are counter to Christianity. She has referred to God as “she” and many other countless things yet people line up and fall in with her thinking.

    Maybe she has started her own dotrine or theology, Oprahology.

    It is like the blind leading the blind and she is laughing all the way to the bank.

    We live in the devil’s world. Its up to each individual person to decide if they want the love, favor and blessing of God, or the trickery, deceit and destruction of the devil.

    We, as Christians, have been warned over and over about false teachers, false prophets and anti-Christ and anti-Christ-like people. We are exhorted to keep guarded against ALL false teachings.

    I applaud the person speaking out against Oprah. I’m certain the Lord is very pleased. But she has chosen her path and its her choice. I pray those Christians who know better aren’t detrimentally angered by her “work” because we have the call on us to touch and teach those who are really wanting the Lord.

    So, I say, as the apostles- pray for the lost (especially those who won’t hear), and love, teach and encourage those who will. Only God can do the rest. God Bless!!!
