Ministership

Postby Aclor79 on Fri Jan 13, 2012 5:14 pm

What does being a minister entail in terms of responsibilities and powers/privileges? Also, can minors be ministers?

AFAIK, there is no reason why a minor cannot become a minister. If you've got the $20, you can buy the certificate. There are no real powers, and no real responsibilities, but remember: with great power comes great responsibility. Spiderman's uncle said that, and he would know. As to being a minister, read the Gospel, learn the eight 'I'd Really Rather You Didn'ts', and try to live your life and preach accordingly. Dress like a pirate if you want. Eat pasta. Take Fridays off.

So it's $20 for a useless piece of paper?

Maybe you find it useless, but I am going to get great mileage out of mine (when I eventually get round to ordering one). It adds credibility to your arguments, it shows that Pastafarianism is more than just an internet meme, and it really pisses people from so-called 'proper' religions off. That's worth my $20 any day.

Actually, in california, those papers grant you the ability to marry. I did some checking and there's no listing service or whatever for these things. So, yes, those $20 can actually DO something.

I also had emailed my Immigration Department concerning the right to perform weddings. If they said Pastafarian ministers are allowed to perform weddings in Hong Kong, I sure am giving my $30 away.

No. He can't. That's Mad Will being at his most intelligible, seeing as he's after something from you.

Apparently you are giving away $30 (gibbon weigh furdy).

He will use the forum's Private Message system (Oil PM ye) his address to send the cash (postill struckshuns).

You probably need to go and check out Newbie Pirates. Larn yursel tar speek pruparrr.

That line was too difficult for me to comprehend :blush:
