    Well, this bit at the end gave it away even before reading the description of the author at the end as a humorist:

    "Elsewhere, the CIA created more controversy today by acknowledging that it accidentally returned several interrogation tapes to Blockbuster."

    :laugh:

    :laugh: Joke or not, that was funny! :laugh: Oprah worships Obama (when she's not busy worshipping herself), and he worships her. How's that for circular theology? :laugh:

    In reality, though, here is something to really be concerned about:

    Oprah Winfrey will be letting out all the stops on her XM Satellite Radio program this coming year. Beginning January 1, 2008, ?Oprah & Friends? will offer a year-long course on the New Age teachings of A Course in Miracles.1 A lesson a day throughout the year will completely cover the 365 lessons from the Course in Miracles ?Workbook.? For example, Lesson #29 asks you to go through your day affirming that ?God is in everything I see.?2 Lesson #61 tells each person to repeat the affirmation ?I am the light of the world.?3 Lesson #70 teaches the student to say and believe ?My salvation comes from me.?4

    By the end of the year, ?Oprah & Friends? listeners will have completed all of the lessons laid out in the Course in Miracles Workbook. Those who finish the Course will have a wholly redefined spiritual mindset?a New Age worldview that includes the belief that there is no sin, no evil, no devil, and that God is ?in? everyone and everything. A Course in Miracles teaches its students to rethink everything they believe about God and life. The Course Workbook bluntly states: ?This is a course in mind training?5 and is dedicated to ?thought reversal.?6

    Teaching A Course in Miracles will be Oprah?s longtime friend and special XM Satellite Radio reporter Marianne Williamson?who also happens to be one of today?s premier New Age leaders. She and Conversations with God author Neale Donald Walsch co-founded the American Renaissance Alliance in 1997, that later became the Global Renaissance Alliance of New Age leaders, that changed its name again in 2005 to the Peace Alliance. This Peace Alliance seeks to usher in an era of global peace founded on the principles of a New Age/New Spirituality that they are now referring to as a ?civil rights movement for the soul.?7 They all agree that the principles of this New Age/New Spirituality are clearly articulated in A Course in Miracles?which is fast becoming the New Age Bible. So what is A Course in Miracles and what does it teach?

    A Course in Miracles is allegedly ?new revelation? from ?Jesus? to help humanity work through these troubled times. This ?Jesus??who bears no doctrinal resemblance to the Bible?s Jesus Christ?began delivering his channeled teachings in 1965 to a Columbia University Professor of Medical Psychology by the name of Helen Schucman.

    One day Schucman heard an ?inner voice? stating, ?This is a course in miracles. Please take notes.?8 For seven years she diligently took spiritual dictation from this inner voice that described himself as ?Jesus.? A Course in Miracles was quietly published in 1975 by the Foundation for Inner Peace. For many years ?the Course? was an underground cult classic for New Age seekers who studied ?the Course? individually, with friends, or in small study groups.

    As a former New Age follower and devoted student of A Course in Miracles, I eventually discovered that the Course in Miracles was?in reality?the truth of the Bible turned upside down. Not having a true understanding of the Bible at the time of my involvement, I was led to believe that A Course in Miracles was ?a gift from God? to help everyone understand the ?real? meaning of the Bible and to help bring peace to the world. Little did I know that the New Age ?Christ? and the New Age teachings of A Course in Miracles were everything the real Jesus Christ warned us to watch out for. In Matthew 24 Jesus warned about false teachers, false teachings and the false ?Christs? who would pretend to be Him.

    When I left the New Age ?Christ? to follow the Bible?s Jesus Christ, I had come to understand that the ?Jesus? of A Course in Miracles was a false ?Christ,? and that his Course in Miracles was dangerously deceptive. Here are some quotes from the ?Jesus? of A Course in Miracles:

    ? ?There is no sin. . . " 9

    ? A ?slain Christ has no meaning.?10

    ? ?The journey to the cross should be the last ?useless journey.?11

    ? ?Do not make the pathetic error of ?clinging to the old rugged cross.??12

    ? ?The Name of Jesus Christ as such is but a symbol... It is a symbol that is safely used as a replacement for the many names of all the gods to which you pray.?13

    ? ?God is in everything I see.?14

    ? ?The recognition of God is the recognition of yourself.?15

    ? ?The oneness of the Creator and the creation is your wholeness, your sanity and your limitless power.?16

    ? ?The Atonement is the final lesson he [man] need learn, for it teaches him that, never having sinned, he has no need of salvation.?17

    This was posted by someone on another forum I participate on, and you can see by the website it is actually true...the Oprah/Obama combination is dangerous!
