Q1: Why do you call yourself a “Minister”? Doesn’t the term at least hold a religious connotation which you, as an atheist, should be against?
First, I call myself a “minister” and a “reverend” because I AM legally A Minister / Reverend.
The term “Minister” or “Reverend” DOES often hold religious connotation. However, “Minister”, “Reverend”, or “Clergy” in the United States have been provided with special privileges.
For example, they can officiate weddings, or re-commitment ceremonies, or funerals, or visit the infirm in hospitals, or inmates in prisons.
Furthermore, “to minister” can also mean “to apply or administer” or can refer to a person in a role such as Minister of Finance.
However, TO BE CLEAR, I prefer to use the term in the same ways as a religious person … just without the religion.
Atheists deserve the same rights
And that is where I come into the picture.
Q2: What do you do?
I am allowed to do anything a traditionally ordained Minister would do.
