mail order ordinations

From a UM perspective this kind d of "ordination" is not valid. No church weather involved. No laying on of hands. No recognized education or preparation. Were a person seeking transfer to the UMC based on this kind of ordination the person would not be received. So no ordination as we understand it took place. This was a commercial transaction undertaken to perform a wedding. Some states allow layperson to pay a registration fee which allows the person to witness the votes and sign the license. The mail order ordination was a commercial equivalent. To claim she joined another church is laughable and a transparent attempt to punish her for performing a ceremony not accepted by the UMC.
