    Everyone is bitching about Atheists for the down thumbs without looking at
    the actual comments. Atheists have no issue, the people down-voting are
    most likely the crazy ones commenting that Oprah is evil and other
    religious nuts who assumed they where making light of the Bible. Just
    fucking look before you call the witch hunt people. Ultra religious people
    are the most offended by this video.

    Gets me every time.

  • Teresa Harris 4 years ago

    what about the one “slaves obey your masters” or “i’ve come not to bring
    peace but the sword…”

  • Martin Rayner 4 years ago

    Not surprising that Oprah’s favourite Bible verse is one that provides
    justification (she imagines) for self-gratification and crass materialism.
    This is what makes religion such pernicious nonsense: its “holy books” can
    be read by anyone and then taken to mean whatever they want as it suits
    their self-serving convenience, all with the imprimatur of supposedly
    divine righteousness.

  • Ordrakon 4 years ago

    Jesus is an allegory for the sun.

  • Shwah Kram 4 years ago

    Did some research and here’s the deal with the dislikes: Oprah is known to
    be extremely arrogant about Atheist and claims they must believe in
    something in order to be complete people, she claims Atheists are all liars
    and really do have faith and that “awe” and “wonder” can only be
    experienced by the faithful. That’s some ugly arrogance.

    Then you have those on the other side of the spectrum, the really religious
    that see Oprah as some sort of golden calf. Oprah has built herself up to a
    god like status she uses that sway to sell people products and in turn
    horde the extreme wealth generated. “But she gives so much to charity”
    yeah, her giving thousands is like you or me giving pennies. She is pretty
    much a self aggrandizing cult leader and her cult is dedicated to buying

    There you have it, Oprah is like Hillary, they work so hard on this always
    positive persona and have generated a cult like following (Oprah went full
    cult) but a quick google search reveals a lot of ugliness. I’m going to
    thumb down Oprah. Why? Because she insults me personally by claiming she
    knows what I “believe” better than I do, I want stand for such arrogance.
    If you look into her you will find a reason the thumb down too.

    Oprah is SO full of s**t it is disgusting.

  • Jakob Schroeder 4 years ago

    For me the better question is: “Which is the worst, least God-like verse in
    the Bible.”
    There is loads of sound advice in most religious texts, but many verse are
    so horrible and hateful, or just factually wrong, that they actually prove
    the text was written without the help or approval from any higher power.

    This is New Age movement propaganda. This New Age agenda is poisonous to
    all, religious and non religious people. The main characters playing this
    agenda are the UN and the Lucis Trust. The end goal is of course is the one
    world government and the one world religion to worship their Christ,
    Lucifer. No one here needs to believe me, go to the Lucis Trust site and it
    is all there in plain sight. Your freedom of or from religion is in
    jeopardy. Comments by people like Robert Mueller make this agenda also very
    clear, don’t fall for this deception if you value freedom.

    These atheists are so unsure of themselves that they must put down others.

    Using Bible verses to make people scared to stand up against Tyranny. e.g.

    way to go Oprah… way to remove the person of God (“Lord”) from the bible
    and make God a thing rather than a person. why quote scripture is you are
    just going to butcher it.

    My favorite quote –
    I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from which cometh my help.
    My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
    He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not
    Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
    The Lord is thy keeper: the Lord is thy shade upon thy right hand.
    The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
    The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
    The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time
    and even for evermore.
    – Psalm of David 121

    Wouldn’t surprise me that Oprah doesn’t know that the original OT had been
    written in Hebrew and the word ‘delight’ is an English approximation by
    translators to the word used in the original. Could easily been indulge, or
    succumb, and very well is between different translations.

    This is some wishy-washy crap from Oprah. God is not a slot machine.. Her

    It’s a bit weird seeing Christianity discussed on a talk show, but there’s
    nothing remotely wrong with this clip. It’s separation of Church and State;
    not separation of Church and Free Speech.

    Oprah has stated several times on her show in the past that an atheist
    cannot be moral and cant ever be president. I am disliking this video
    because of her moronic views.

  • Bianca Clark 4 years ago

    Wow the dislikes??! I’m atheist and thought this was a beautiful segment.
    They’re not talking about the bible verses as fundamentalists, but as
    metaphors and advice for life. Obviously Stephen and Oprah are not
    right-wing bible thumpers, faith in anything is beautiful.

    All of this Rhetoric and commentary over Oprah, her beliefs, and what she
    stands for and the fact remains that she doesn’t care what any of us think.
    Now there, see how simple that is? If we would just worry about ourselves
    the world would be so much better.

  • Britt Moritz 4 years ago

    I’m not offended as an atheist, I just don’t see the purpose of discussing
    this on live television… You couldn’t think of anything more interesting
    to talk about? Yeah, I’ve read the bible. It’s not that great unless you
    appreciate an angry, jealous god murdering hundreds of thousands of
    innocents throughout (including the unborn…. Sanctity of life!?)

  • Omnis 4 years ago

    They didn’t include the part right after in which Stephen said one of the
    most profound things I’ve heard on late night TV. That’s a shame. It’s so
    nice to have the real Stephen on television. He is one of the most
    intelligent and reverent Catholics in the public eye, but he doesn’t flaunt
    it. I love it when he shares things that are deeper than just his
    professional talent and comic wit.

    My favorite bible verse that every xtian pretends doesn’t exist:

    But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut
    thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth
    in secret shall reward thee openly. Matthew 6:6

    Keep your shameful, primitive beliefs in the closet.

  • John Murray 4 years ago

    “You know, I go to church and I am some what religious. When I try to
    explain it to some people who aren’t, (that I have a belief) I say, “Well,
    I was given this by my ancestors.” I look at my children and I say, “I love
    them I wouldn’t want to give them anything I didn’t think would help them.”
    So I assume I was given this by my ancestors because they were trying to
    help me, and I open it like a box and I wonder whats inside. But, I don’t
    think I’ve gotten to the bottom at any point. I just keep taking it out. I
    look at it as a gift. But, I accept that it’s not the only gift you can

    – Stephen Colbert, at the end of this interview. I think it’s an important
    part they left out.

    What a bizarre definition for faith. Just one more use that theists can

    I can’t help but wonder if she’s even read the entire bible.

    Oprah’s interpretation of that Bible verse was very much exaggerated to
    incorporate her own beliefs. There is no indication that “The Lord” as it
    was written in that psalm was meant to mean anything other than the deity
    of the writer. To instill it with any other meaning of goodness or
    whatever, that is just projecting your own ideas onto a verse written by
    someone else. The same way Oprah can project her own ideas of “goodness”
    onto this verse, someone else can project their negative ideas onto it as
