Harvard has a new chief chaplain and he’s an atheist: NPR
Greg Epstein is the author of Good without God. In his new role, he will oversee the activities of all religious communities on campus. His personal beliefs or disbelief don’t seem to be a problem.
STEVE INSKEEP, HTE:
Hello. I am Steve Inskeep. Harvard has a new chief chaplain. Let’s go through the curriculum vitae here. Greg Epstein started at university in 2005, so he knows the organization. He is the author of “Bon sans Dieu”, so it is published. And he’s an atheist. In his new role, Epstein will oversee the activities of all religious communities on campus. But her personal beliefs – or disbelief – don’t seem to be a problem. The vote of his fellow chaplains was unanimous. This is the MORNING EDITION.
