Day 3: Become an ordained minister
September 5, 2010 § 1 Comment
Thanks to Universal Ministries, a company that offers free online ordination, I am now legally capable of officiating baptisms, weddings, funerals, and other religious endeavors. The above certificate, delivered via email, is a testament to my new capabilities. Before performing any official ceremonies, however, the Universal Ministries website suggests that I first consult local laws. I can only imagine how clergymen of old would cringe if they knew that in the year 2010, it would be possible to legally perform such activities after taking a brief online survey, which literally consisted of typing in my name, address, and then clicking “okay.” The schedule of Good Reverend Moss is booking up fast, however, so if you are interested in having me organize your funeral or the baptism of your first child, I’ll need to see some cash up front.
