Is a non traditional wedding a Humanist Wedding?
Ireland has experienced significant cultural changes in recent years as it separates Church and State and embraces pluralism. This transformation has led to the opening up of wedding ceremonies to humanists since 2012. Humanists, a non-traditional belief system, reject the existence of God. With the Church scandals people have rejected the mainstream churches en masse. views on the infallibility of the main Churches. People’s views on religion has evolved. For instance, some individuals cannot have a traditional church wedding because they were previously married in the Church. The Catholic Church does not recognise divorce. Nonetheless, many people believe in a higher power, something beyond human comprehension, which could be karma, spirit, or an energy source.
In Ireland, people have the freedom to choose what they believe in without any restriction. Traditional religious institutions do not have a monopoly on goodness, as recent scandals have highlighted. Paternalistic institutions lacking the female life force energy cannot be beneficial to any organisation. Furthermore, with numerous religions globally, it is hard to establish which one is right. They each have many passionate followers and each religion claims to have exclusive knowledge of who God is, but not all of them can be correct.
We can Draw from any Source
Non-traditional religions such as interfaith can be appealing since no religion holds the ultimate answer. Interfaith can draw from any source. Additionally, non-traditional religions offer unique ceremonies, such as OneSpirit Minister. This can provide couples with the perfect wedding experience, because each ceremony is unique. In conclusion, Ireland’s cultural shift towards pluralism has brought about changes in religion and wedding ceremonies, providing couples with more options to choose from for their special day.
