would kind of spoil it for me.
Umm...2 things here.

1) We wouldn't let them have a say. We would just be taking ideas (read: blatanly copying) from the ULC. They wouldn't have a say.

2) ULC allows anybody to become ordained - even the anti-religious. From what I've seen, they're very free-thinking too and less cliquy than us. So, in spirit I think, we're affiliated with them. And I don't see a problem with that.

If you can do it without it being affiliated with another Church, then ok. I guess you could base the CoG ordination on another's style, as long as when you do it, you don't have to affiliate with any other Church at that time, still remain FREE and all...I guess that would work. Still sounds culty, though.
We're not going to be stockpiling weapons anytime soon, nor are we going to be encouraging polygamy. So, no worries there.

OK, I googled it. Fine, but I still don't think it's necessary.
If you do it, make it still fit the parody theme, otherwise it will feel too serious and we don't really want to be a real church like that. The name ULC threw me. Life + Church = trouble.

But, I will understand if you want to offer it. I'm not the facist here.

Sorry, I'd not seen this thread before.

I'm easy () but count me out. That's getting too close to organised religion for my liking.

Actually, soccerstarr summed my view point up nicely.

Whatever's decided I'll go along with but I promise that if this place starts with doctrine and shit then I'm offski

..........well, I'm with Loki and SS on this one. No need to offer ULC type ordinations. Let ULC do that....they can do their thing, we have ours.

Oh, you're allowed to have more than one. Just not at the same time.

As to the others - I was just offering my services. In truth, I don't really like the idea either.

I think the idea is striked down. I also was not for it! I think if you want it get ULC and Google minister and all is well.
