The Great and Powerful O

From a current CNN [1] article about Our OWN Queen Confessor.

“One of Oprah’s major products is redemption,” Kathryn Lofton, a professor of religious and American studies at Yale University, told The Globe and Mail. “She sold the experience of confession — of hearing somebody’s darkest story, and offering to them the possibility of relief from its articulation.”

So if a penitent narcissist apologizes to a narcissist who is a combination of L. Ron Hubbard and Dr. Phil, but who possesses the mesmerizing power of Hypnotoad, he shall be saved! Unless she rips him a new one, then he’s damned.

I think Scientology might have some competition from OWN.

[1] I should probably stop pretending that CNN is actually a news source.
