Doctor of Divinity, Anyone?


food for thought header 2
In Evanston, Illinois, are the “Missionaries of the New Truth” who also advertise under the heading: “We want you to join our faith as an ORDAINED MINISTER with the rank of DOCTOR OF DIVINITY.”

They state: “We are a fast-growing faith, actively seeking new members who believe as we do that all men should seek the truth in their own way, by any means they deem right. As a minister of the faith you can: Set up your own church and apply for exemption from property and other taxes; perform marriages and exercise all other ecclesiastical powers; seek draft exemption as one of our working missionaries. We can tell you how. Get sizeable cash grants for doing missionary work for us; some transportation companies, hotels, theaters, etc., give ministers reduced rates. GET THE WHOLE PACKAGE FOR $100.00.” This “ordination” is declared to be legal and valid anywhere in this country.
