An Atheist Jew is the Chaplain of Harvard and MIT

 Who better than an atheist jew to be the chaplain for two of the most “prestigious” schools in the world? Greg Epstein, author of “Good without God”, was recently elected unanimously to the position of chaplain for Harvard, while he also serves as humanist chaplain for MIT.

From NY Post:

Despite his disbelief in any higher power, Harvard chaplains felt Epstein — author of the book “Good Without God: What a Billion Nonreligious People Do Believe” — was a good choice for the position due to young people’s increasing lack of religiosity.

“There is a rising group of people who no longer identify with any religious tradition but still experience a real need for conversation and support around what it means to be a good human and live an ethical life,” Epstein, who grew up in a Jewish home, told the New York Times in an interview published Thursday.

It really is best for everyone that a jew be in charge of the religious life for an entire school.

Harvard’s liberal values and desire to prioritize engagement over tradition make Epstein a great fit for the job, many insiders feel. Indeed, his election was unanimous.

Apparently Epstein is all about pushing the whole “coexist” thing.

Greg’s leadership isn’t about theology,” 20-year-old electrical engineering student Charlotte Nickerson told the Times. “It’s about cooperation between people of different faiths and bringing together people who wouldn’t normally consider themselves religious.”

While I do not care one bit about people believing in Yahweh, the psychopathic daddy of rabbi Yeshua, Epstein being the chaplain for Harvard and MIT really is a sign of the times.
