RubberChickenMinistries.org is a digital, queer, non-theist, spiritual humanist ministry of Joy, Kindness and Love.
We recognize gods as allegorical representations of a spiritual reality that is neither quantifiable by, nor reducible to, a modern scientific approach.
Our Founder: Brian Gryphon
Brian was baptized in the United Church of Canada as an infant and again in The Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto as an adult. Read more in Brian’s biography.
Brian is ordained in the world–wide congregation of Universal Life Church Ministers. He is licensed to perform weddings in Ohio and available to bless queer unions or other events of personal significance.
“I vow to uphold the Spirit of Stonewall, the Destruction of the Closet, and the Celebration of the Body- which bourgeois society has banished to the Valley of Shame.”
Vows taken in 1983
At Rubber Chicken Ministries we do not worship any god, nor Man; but share the Religious Humanist approach of many Unitarian/Universalists as stated by UU Minister Kenneth Phifer: “Humanism tells us that whatever our philosophy of the universe may be, ultimately the responsibility for the kind of world in which we live rests with us.” Moral codes can no more be taken blindly from old texts than a computer could be operated by reading the texts on the Rosetta Stone.
