“...a federal judge this week blocked Tennessee’s new ban on online ordination for wedding officiants”

"Unlike most denominations, churches, and religious organizations, nonprofits like the Universal Life Church and American Marriage Ministries exist primarily to ordain the growing number of friends and family members tapped to officiate weddings. ... between a quarter and half of US ceremonies are now performed by loved ones rather than traditional ministers." - Christianity Today

My brother and his wife had a "Universal life pastor" do their wedding, and it was pretty much take the Anglican order of marriage and take out any references to God.  It can be good ministry for a pastor to have the opportunity to counsel a young couple, for sure, but with more and more couples wanting nothing to do with Scripture, this is at least honest.

But a bit tacky.

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.
