The Magic Kingdom at Prayer

By Diogenes (articles ) | May 27, 2003

Bill Cork's blog alertly picks up on the very, very flexible Reverend Tim, who, for a price, will perform a Disney-theme marriage for you, with Mickey and Minnie as costumed attendants. Tim's website makes it clear that he will admit neither theology not canon law as impediments to the marriage of true minds:

    Types of Services:
    Nondenominational Christian
    Civil
    The Catholic Wedding Outside of Mass
    Services written by the bride and groom
    Protestant
    Vow Renewals
    Special traditions and ethnic services
    Wedding services creating a family
    Interfaith Weddings

Reverend Tim may have Disney weddings cornered, but we've learned a lot about market segmentation and have good reason to think there's unexploited spiritual territory in the funeral line: picture the Seven Dwarves as pall-bearers, led by Goofy in cotta, pluvial, and biretta.

Hi-ho! Hi-ho! It's profitwards we go.
And in a jiff we'll plant your stiff:
Hi-ho! Hi-ho!

(You have to think creative if you go Disney.)
