The Internet: Sites for online ordination

You can become ordained on these sites with little fuss and for little or no money.

Themonastery.org, the site of Universal Life Church Monastery, performs online ordination for free, instantly. The church’s ordination not only qualifies you to marry but also to “bury, anoint, or exorcise others.”

Spiritualhumanism.org will ordain at no cost, but requires an e-mail “within 48 hours of sign-up to activate ordination credentials.”

Amfellow.org, the American Fellowship Church site, charges $25 plus a $3 fee for ordination. The AFC requires “signature and document mail-in”—meaning you may wait up to two weeks before officially being ordained.

Dudeism.com is the online shrine of the unconventional Church of the Latter-Day Dude. Its philosophy blends ideas from Taoism with principles from the film The Big Lebowski. If you don’t mind the frequent uses of “dude,” become ordained instantaneously at no cost.
