There have been many discussions concerning the legality of the Universal Life Church, but the late Joan Rivers was an ordained minister of the ULC. She became ordained in 2013 and performed a few wedding ceremonies for same-sex couples. Many say that the organization is legal and within the rights to operate as a religious non-profit organization. In 1974, there was a case that challenged this and it was determined that the government has no right to infringe on the rights of a particular religion or to determine which is more relevant over any of them. A few people that I know decided as a tribute to the late Joan Rivers to become ordained through the Universal Life Church. In fact, one also purchased a Doctor of Divinity degree. They asked me what the legality of these credentials are? I told them that as far as the law was concerned they can use the title "Rev.," and to the one who received the Doctor of Divinity, they will be able to add either "Rev. Dr.," or "Rev., (there name), D.D.," as these are legally able to be used. They are now getting stationary and all kinds of things done to show this achievement. Now to me, they wanted me to get in on it. I told them that they have the right to do as they wish, but that I didn't think that it is right or proper to do so. What is your opinion?
