God is Still Dead

And now so is
William Hamilton
, who wrote GOD's obituary.

Being a theologian who did not believe in GOD made for an interesting career.

His son, Donald Hamilton, recalled how fellow faculty living on their leafy dead end street "hated my father."

Their family recited The Lord's Prayer before bedtime and attended a Presbyterian church until his father's notoriety made him no longer welcome at services, at which point he led his family in Bible studies at home.

Despite holding an endowed chair and full tenure, and being sent by the school to represent them at the funeral of four black girls killed in a church fire, William Hamilton was no longer allowed to teach and left for a new job at New College in Sarasota, Fla., said Ronald Carter, a student of Hamilton's at the time and now an emeritus professor of humanities at the University of Texas.

Barbie died for our sins.
