Odds-n-Ends :: Godless Chaplain

According to WORLD Magazine, "Stanford has appointed an atheist "chaplain" to serve its non-believing students. Stanford's independent Humanist community technically employs John Figdor, but he is an officially recognized chaplain under Stanford's Office of Religious Life. . . . Figdor originally entered Harvard Divinity School with the aim of becoming a religion journalist, but along the way he met Harvard's own humanist chaplain, and became his assistant. Stanford's Humanist Community hired Figdor in July. He recently led students through a program he calls "The Heathen's Guide to the Holidays," in which he suggested alternatives to celebrating Christmas or Hanukkah.
