Universal Life Church

Has anybody heard of this and is it real?

I came across the fact that actor Dominic Cumberbatch is ordained a minister and can officiate at weddings. He did Judge Rinder's.

This church it seems has very wide open arms of acceptance of members. Apparently anyone of any belief is welcome, as long as they 'do what is right' - whatever the criteria of that is.

It's a legal church that will ordain anyone.

Whether that's "real" or not depends on what you mean. The Roman Catholic Church and The Church of the Subgenius, for example, could each be either more real or less real, depending on exactly what criteria are responsible for a religion being "real."
My preferred pronouns are he, him, and his.
