"The tendency to turn human judgments into divine commands makes religion one of the most dangerous forces in the world." -- Georgia Harkness
Georgia Elma Harkness (April 21, 1891- August 21, 1974) was a Christian theologian in the Methodist tradition. Born in Harkness, New York, a town named after her grandfather, Harkness has been described as one of the first significant American female theologians and was important in the movement to gain ordination for women in American Methodism. Teaching at Garrett Biblical Institute and later at the Pacific School of Religion, she was also one of the first women to teach theology in a seminary, and became a leading figure in the modern ecumenical movement.

Harkness had an affinity for ministry through poetry and the arts. Her theological interests centered around the influence of the ecumenical church, eschatology, applied theological thought and a desire for all persons to understand the Christian faith. She made clear a distaste for the doctrine of original sin, saying that "the sooner it disappears, the better it is for theology."
