    Every time I try to print my certificate, there is a barcode type thing over the top of it. Very un-dude like.

  • Allen Smith says:

    Just became ordained. I shall abide and enjoy a White Russian.

  • braco says:

    If i commit to ordination as a true spiritual leader of the dudes, could I preside over my own wedding(s), a la Napoleon’s coronation (all be it in a liberal, religious and non violent empire building sort of way)?

    Very interested in the theology of self presidation, but It’s no a deal breaker, so if you don’t care, or mind either way, don’t sweat it dude.

    Stay cool (like an iced bica)!

    I live in Missouri and my fiance wants his cousin to marry us. If he is ordained by the church of the latter day dude, can he marry us? My county clerk wasnt much help.

    • Michelle says:

      Hi Amanda,
      I’m not a lawyer or anything, but my understanding is that if we say it’s a religion, it’s a religion. And in the US, the government cannot say otherwise. He would have to get the ordination certificate and the letter of good standing to attach to the wedding licence when you send it to the state. That’s what I had to do in NY, anyway.

      • I was ordained with the Universal Life Church Monastery. In Minnesota, you’re required to have a letter of good standing when you register with the County Clerk. It was a one time fee of $5.00. After that all you have to do is sign the marriage license and mail it in for your clients after performing the ceremony. You’ll be registered in the state for the rest of your life.
