People who call themselves Reverend

Posted in Current Events, Randomness, Ranting and Raving on July 20, 2010 by vk08

It occoured to me today after a nice back and forth my webhost about a “complaint” filed by a “reverend” just how easy it is for someone to obtain that title and abuse it.  There are sites such as this : http://www.universalministries.com/doctrine.html that will for free and with no background checks or otherwise let you print out a certificate ordaining you as a reverend in their church.  With that certificate they gain power over others and can abuse that because it’s always been held that religios personell are held to a higher standard.

Enter someone that is a total shut in, believes that famous wrestlers are lining up to bed her, and that calls anyone who dares question her hold on reality a stalker and you have a very dangerous person.

I am calling for all places that accept without question, to start questioning the validity of the documents and the authenticity of the person using the title.

It may go a long way to stop people from abusing the “name” to get results and to take abusive action against others in the name of the “reverend”
