    Default A Serious question about alex

    I'm not familliar with Priesthood, but what is a reverand, or a ordained minister? Does that mean Alex puts on a black gown, and a back to front white collar on a sunday. I'm serious. I know what priests are ofcourse, but priests ar'nt aloud to get married, are they, or are'nt they? One more thing, is this a part time deal for Alex?

    The title would typically imply that the person went to seminary college and was officially ordained by a church denomination after receiving a degree in Divinity or the like. However, there are some church organizations that are outside the mainline traditions that qualify as churches by meeting tax-free code requirements and have some "unusual" and simple qualifications for becoming a legally recognized minister which qualifies them in most areas of the U.S. to legally conduct marriages.

    The Universal Life Church would be a good example:

    Probably ordained online. Has about as much validity as getting your drivers license out of a Crackerjack box.

    I'm sure Alex became more spiritual over the years and eventually became an ordained minister.

    Maybe but don't be too sure. I had a buddy become an ordained minister via one of those quick/easy churches AS A JOKE! He's actually married somebody which, if you knew this guy, you would laugh at the sanctity of that marriage.

    I'm not implying the same for the VH clan. In fact, I think its pretty cool for Al to have done the ceremony. But whether he's any closer to God or whatever, Al only knows.

    True to all of that looper guy.

    Anybody can be an ordained minister. America is a country that has a constitutional right to freedom of religion. It doesn't matter what that religion is. You can be a minister to anything or any religion, even if you make one up, and you would be "legal" to perform a marriage ceremony and have it stick legally.

    That's what I'd guess, but to be a TRUE, REAL minister, you HAVE to be ordained by A PASTOR of a CHURCH.....Well, that's how it is for Baptists, not sure bout the rest.......

    Exactly Kimmie. I can't take Alex (or anyone else) seriously unless they've studied Theology and pursued it to the ninth degree.

    does anyone know if Al has undertaken a serious study of theology?
    Stay out of it, dude.

    Thanks Sum! And I agree! I mean, I know A WHOLE LOT about the Bible, but there's no way I'd try to preach it to someone, I would never want to influence a person's beliefs or tell them the wrong thing. I don't think Alex seems like that kind of guy either, but now, IF he has studied theology, then by all means....PREACH IT BROTHER AL!!!!!!!!

    He's been awfully busy dealing with court proceedings (taking care of ex wives) and selling his homes. And going to his chiropractor.

    Theology? What's that?

    I know what Theology is Kimmie. I was just being sarcastic, as if to say when did Alex ever find the time to study it? Kind of seems like he read one of those ads in the very back of a Rolling Stone magazine and decided "Hey, today I'll become a minister"! I just can't take him seriously unless there's substantial proof otherwise regarding this.
