"A former Methodist minister-turned-atheist has been fired from her high-ranking post at Harvard University last week after it was discovered that she had falsified her resume," reports the Christian Post.
"Teresa MacBain was formerly a United Methodist pastor in Florida before announcing at the American Atheists convention in 2012 that she had lost her faith and had decided to become an atheist. MacBain's announcement led to a large amount of publicity, including the American Atheists organization naming her the 'Atheist of the Year' for 2012. Additionally, she was named the organization's public relations director in the same year," CP reports.
"Earlier in September, Harvard University in Cambridge, Mass., offered MacBain the job of project director for the college's Humanist Community Project. The purpose of the newly-created project was to form local communities for humanists across the nation through schools and various organizations. MacBain's job would have been to travel to these various places to start the communities," according to the Christian Post.
"The New York Times profiled MacBain on her new position at the high-ranking university in an article that appeared earlier this month. The article claimed that MacBain had received a Master's of Divinity from Duke University. After the article ran, the newspaper was contacted by the university to clarify it had no record of MacBain's reception of a master's degree," CP reports.
