. Well, I haven't started my own religion, but I'm a minister of the Universal Life Church. Last time I checked, I could perform legal marriage ceremonies in most US states.

I also can perform marriages, but I always feel guilty when I do.  It's sort of like watching your favorite dog get neutered.

"Sir, we've just neutralised your dog successfully."
"Don't you mean Neutered?"
"Oh. Oh god."

Like the said its different everywhere but I don't think its a notary. Civil ceremonies at city hall I think are judges. Notaries usually just witness signatures.

Well to get known people usually write a book. But these days websites are doing the job. Then write an instructable of course. Robot Rules!!!

. I dunno. Don't remember ever having seen or heard of a notary performing marriages, but that's not something I'd pay much attention to. . Marriage laws are not Federal, but State, so it will vary depending on where you live.

. Nope. Just did it to aggravate a "preacher" I worked with. (As far as I could tell, all he was interested in was passing the collection plate and "counseling" his female parishioners.) It worked. :) "Hey, look! I'm a preacher, too!" LOL

The reason I asked, is because a friend and I are in the process of writing some holy scripture. I'm betting that most of you will become Ostratarianists when we're done with it.

. Not so much that I want to, but if I'm going to worship something I think a Dog would do just fine. IMNSHO, much better than an Ostrich. After all, what is Dog spelled backwards?

Stuck a feather in his cap and called it macaroni or something like that. Big fluffy ostrich feathers that the Dudes and Dukes used to wear in the hats.

The flying ostrich is god. He created the ostrich in the image of himself. To wear the ostrich is trying to be godlike...which is not acceptable.
