Another mindless link.
While this is a reckless and probably dangerous activity, there is nonetheless some good to be had out of it.

For example, this horrifying link.

I have only one question: are the satanic overtones inherrent in their "philosophy" deliberate? Maybe it is their idea of "parody" or "satire"?

In any case, good thing I was too squeamish to request anything from them. (Considering that to become "ordained" you only need to fill in your name and click one link, it is very easy to act unthinkingly in such a situation.)

All they want is your money. Your 'ordained minister' certificate is about as valid as that 'life-experience university degree' they also offer (via a different website).

The only person I know who has been happy with his ordination by mail is bug-eyed Earl.

I signed up for this once, sometime around '96. I might still have the certificate somewhere, although I doubt it. No money changed hands whatsoever.

A troll's true colors.

Well now Mr. Russki, as long as you have the Good Book to read, perhaps even the execrable 2nd grade reading level stylistically flat Good News for Modern Man, you have all you need to understand God and become a minister. This web page just helps.

The idea that you need a grounding in history, sociology, languages and theology to better interpret the Bible is just a conspiracy by the Papists to keep us good old rattler handlin' Americans from our place in the sun.
