Can anyone help me become an ordained minister? I found a website that has me type my info in and then "ordains" me but it seems a little too easy. Is it really that simple? Are there classes I should find? What's a reputable website to go through? TIA for any help or direction you can provide. :)


If evil means to be self-motivated, to be the center of one’s own universe, to live on one’s own terms, then every artist, every thinker, every original mind, is evil. Because we dare to look through our own eyes rather than mouth clichés lent us from the so-called Fathers…three cheers for Eve. -...

It depends on what you mean by an "ordained minister."  Yes, you can find a website and with a couple of clicks print out a certificate that says you are ordained.  Many people do this in order to perform marriages for friends.  The problem with that is that such a marriage may not hold up to a legal challenge depending on where you are married.

 

For most religious denominations, ordination happens after a lengthy period studying in seminary, often many years, and completing additional requirements.
