Russell Brand Is A Minister!?!

Russell Brand Katy Perry Ordained Minister

Yep, it's true.

The once upon a time sex addict is now a minister!

No, we are NOT joking!

Russell Brand went online and became ordained through America's Universal Life Church.

So now he can perform weddings, funerals, and church sermons!

Crazy to think about it, isn't it?

The performer has already put his newly given power to use by marrying a couple at one of his stand-up gigs — Mr. and Mrs. Will De Boor!

According to a source:

Russell has had a total turnaround since he met wife Katy Perry as her parents are super religious. He’s been reading a lot of theological texts, especially by the Maharishi, and he wanted to take it further. With the Universal Life Church anyone can get ordained online and Russell did it as a half-jokey, half-serious thing. When he talked about it at his gig, one couple stood up and said they wanted him to marry them. Unfortunately, the words he used during their service can’t be repeated as they were somewhat unorthodox. But it was all 100 percent legal.

Wooow. Who wouldn't thunkit?

    anyone can get ordained online…look into it for yourself
    interesting thing for him to decide to do
    we shouldn't be trying to read anything into it

    LOL I can just imagine him marrying a couple or doing a funeral and cursing it up or making naughty jokes! Awesome!

    You still have to sign a marriage license to be legally married, no?

    She is more into him, than he is into her. Thus, their marriage won't last as long as they hoped. Not really suprising looking at Russell's history, but it's still a shame as they are some of the few people who could actually tolerate each others antics and erratic behaviour. But, I always did find Russell too intelligent for Katy, because he is very, very intelligent - she is not. And dumbing oneself down can get awfully tiring.

    I've been a Minister with the ULC since 2002. There are a lot of celebrities who are Ministers in our religion. I would like to welcome Russell Brand to ULC. I do that being a Minister isn't something he did lightly. A great thing about the ULC, is that each person who comes to it does it for their own reasons. Those who do it as a lark, get bored wit the the notion quickly. I wish him well, and you also Perez..

    I have been ordained for a couple years now, would like to seriously do something with it some day. It should be very easy to be a minister, so many people have used the title for bad, that the more we get out there that may use it for good the better.
