    google church ads

    Either I don't pay attention or religious advertising is coming upon us.
    I was scrolling way down the page and noticed the google ads on the left (the ones where Jeremy is making all his cash from) and there was one for the Ames E Free Church. It just caught me off guard that a church would be advertising on google. Curious.

    I am an ordained minister of the Church of Light. I have the certificate and all. If anyone needs to be married, let me know. =)

    I keep seeing the hair club advertisement, I wasn't sure if Jeremy was giving himself hints everyday.

    Re: google church ads

    There is a church in our little town that was purchased by a husband and wife minister team. They advertise for weddings and such. The funny thing is the wife is a hair stylist and they have a barber/beauty shop in the back of the church called Holy Hair.

    Why not? With Google being so popular, it is smart in my opinion.

    Holy crap! I am also ordained with the church of light. And I also have my certificate. It's on my bookcase.

    I'm not sure why I haven't been commissioned to do any weddings though...

    Re: google church ads

    The First Orthodox Church of the Tuff Tiger requires no advertising.

    Flapjack Rabbits, Simples and other signs of his coming will alert those faithful that the prophet has returned.

    May his Mizzou College Football wisdom shower down upon us like a beer spit-take.


    Side Note: Used to be part of the Church of Grimace, but found the meetings at McDonalds to be fattening.

    Hey, you and I can travel the countryside marrying people. It would rock. Payment would be in beer and bridesmaids.

    I didn't even feel right typing that.

    Ok, I admit, I had to look that up. I had a feeling that was what it meant, but wanted to verify. I am soooo glad I didnt live in the times this happened in frequency.

    About 3 friends of mine and I all went online in college and got our certificates one day. Why go to seminary to get ordained when you can fill out a form that takes about 45 seconds?

    They are equivalent, correct?

    Legally yes. Spiritually I would think not.
