Tish Harrison Warren on why the best morality rests on the words and deeds of Jesus

The weekly New York Times lucubrations of Anglican priest Tish Harrison Warren are anodyne and sometimes off-putting, yet I cannot resist reading them—for the same reason that you smell the milk when you know it’s gone bad.  This week, Warren interviews Rachael Denhollander, the first gymnast to publicly accuse team doctor Larry Nassar of sexual … Continue reading Tish Harrison Warren on why the best morality rests on the words and deeds of Jesus

Does Uvalde need prayers? Tish Harrison Warren says, “Definitely”

Tish Harrison Warren may be the lowest-hanging fruit in the New York Times op-ed section, but what I wonder is why the paper wants low-hanging fruit. At some point, a NYT executive must have thought, “Hey, we need religion to draw more readers—but not that old-timey, fundamentalist religion. We need a more Sophisticated form of … Continue reading Does Uvalde need prayers? Tish Harrison Warren says, “Definitely”

Tish Harrison Warren says that Christian virtues dispel racism

I subscribe to Tish Harrison Warren’s NYT column for the same reason I sniff the milk when I already know it’s gone bad. Masochism, I suppose. Today we have a very confused column from the Anglican priest, whose schtick seems to be to take a conventional and approved moral position, inform us how virtuous she … Continue reading Tish Harrison Warren says that Christian virtues dispel racism

More anodyne cures for the world’s ills by Reverend Tish Harrison Warren

Yes, Tish Harrison Warren, the Anglican priest who writes a weekly column to fill up empty space in the New York Times, has once again proffered a cure for the nation’s ills. It’s trivial and far from new, but at least it doesn’t involve God.  The email I got with the column (Ceiling Cat help … Continue reading More anodyne cures for the world’s ills by Reverend Tish Harrison Warren

Tish Harrison Warren thinks it’s critically important that Jesus DID rise bodily from the dead

And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain. —1 Corinthians 15:14 (King James version) The quote above is one I use in Faith Versus Fact to help demonstrate that truth does matter to many believers—that factual claims of religion are often vitally important to sustaining the faith. If it were all just … Continue reading Tish Harrison Warren thinks it’s critically important that Jesus DID rise bodily from the dead

NYT columnist and Anglican pastor Tish Harrison Warren on why abortion should be banned

I’m still not sure why Anglican Priest Tish Harrison Warren was hired to write a weekly column on religion for the New York Times. Not only does she push mythology on the paper’s educated readers (I think of it as an “astrology for the elite” column), but her sentiments are nearly always trite and anodyne. … Continue reading NYT columnist and Anglican pastor Tish Harrison Warren on why abortion should be banned

Tish Harrison Warren becomes the female Jordan Peterson. And suggest your own “rules for life”!

Well, Anglican priest Tish Harrison Warren isn’t nearly as weird as Peterson, but they’re both religious and they’ve both made lists about how to improve your life and your world. Harrison’s column (click to read) is to fixing the world as a cough drop is to a cough (cough drops don’t work). I’m starting to … Continue reading Tish Harrison Warren becomes the female Jordan Peterson. And suggest your own “rules for life”!

Pastor Tish Harrison Warren sees prohibiting abortion as part of the Social Justice Movement

Reader Kenneth said he found the latest NYT column by Anglican Priest Tish Harrison Warren “hallucinatory”. His reason, amply supported by Harrison’s words, is that she is in favor of the upcoming Supreme Court decision that overturns Roe v. Wade (and is apparently against abortion per se), but sees this as an opportunity to create … Continue reading Pastor Tish Harrison Warren sees prohibiting abortion as part of the Social Justice Movement

Tish Harrison Warren presents her readers’ prayers for Ukraine, but God doesn’t seem to be listening

Once again Tish Harrison Warren is spreading Christian dogma in the pages of the New York Times, and once again I’m baffled that her unevidenced superstition is being purveyed to the paper’s readers. The typical liberal religionist rationalizes praying to God as simply a form of meditation or a way to get emotional support. When … Continue reading Tish Harrison Warren presents her readers’ prayers for Ukraine, but God doesn’t seem to be listening
