A guy I know told me about how he agreed to become a minister so that he could marry some friends of his. Then he was like, “If you want to get ordained I could forward you the website, it’s really easy.” Stunned at the time I said, “Ahh, No, thanks.” But today I was reading the Wittenburg Door’s newsletter and this ordination thing popped up again. It turns out there’s this church that will grant whatever you want, free ordinations and then whatever title you desire–for a small fee. Would you trust a place with this sentence on the instructions?
“Please only ordain others with their permission. (This includes public figures as well as cartoon and other fictional characters.)”
