It’s Super Easy To Get Ordained Apparently
I'm not sure my mom is cool with it...but I got ordained today.
With my credentials I'll be able to:
- Legally officiate weddings across the United States
- Impress your friends, family, and peers with your new official status
- Expand your career as a minister / professional officiant
The one I'm most looking forward to is #2: Impressing my friends, family & peers. It's been a while since I've been able to do that. As a matter of fact I can't think of the last time I impressed anyone.
It could be argued that the act of marrying two people should be relegated to the leader of the church but not everyone agrees. Everyone has a different relationship with the man upstairs and different views on how marriage should be administered.
But there's no judgement from Reverend Stage.
All I did was get online at www.ulc.org. I scrolled past the celebrity minsters, Conan O'Brien, Ben Cumberbatch, Ian McKellen, Lady Gaga and The Rock...clicked on "Become an Ordained Minister", filled out my name & address and BOOM! Instant Ordainment!
Yes...I can now officially be included in the same group as Sir Paul McCartney! So, since I have no hope of being knighted or inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame...this is a huge accomplishment for me.
I may have impressed myself with this one.
So, I look forward to officiating my first wedding. This will be happening next month at an undisclosed location. I'll keep you informed to how it goes...but in the meantime:
Can anyone tell me where to get one of those weird-collard shirts? Any tips are appreciated.
