There is a lot of disagreement about what the term "Christian" means. I'd say that Oprah does not identify herself as such so she is probably not. Beck identifies himself as a Mormon (which, while using some similar terminology, has a fundamentally different understanding of who God is, who Christ is, and what he did, than what has been historically understood as Christianity). Bush, Obama, and Palin all identify themselves as Christians. And while I may question some of their actions at times I don't think I need to put myself in the position of judging whether they are Christian believers. Perhaps if the question were framed, "Which, if any, of the following people do you believe are followers of Christ?" the answers might be different still. Which is the more fundamental question?
