Harvard Fires Minister-Turned-Atheist for Lying; Teresa MacBain Said She Had M. Div. on Resume

A former United Methodist minister-turned-atheist was dismissed from her high-profile position at Harvard University last week after it was revealed she falsified her resume, the Religion News website reports today (September 30, 2013).

Teresa MacBain -- one of the most high-profile nonbelievers in the country -- was fired from her newly created position that she started at the beginning of September with the Humanistic Community at Harvard.

Last week, MacBain acknowledged she had misrepresented her education to Harvard, to the broader atheist community, and to reporters. "I have committed a grave error in judgment that I deeply regret," MacBain wrote.

McBain lied on her resume by saying she had a master's of divinity degree (M. Div.) from Duke University. The fact is that she just attended one summer course at Duke.
