Count Tiger & Elin’s ‘Wedding Pastor’ Among Those Who Believe The Two Will Stay Together

Well, if a person who has not had contact with Tiger or Elin for six years believes they can work things out, well gosh darn it, why shouldn’t we?

Reverend Ricky Kirton, the pastor who married Tiger and Elin at their lavish Barbados wedding in 2004 , broke his silence and agreed to discuss the couple’s many issues – or at least as far as the confidentiality agreement would allow him – with People magazine, and he had a very deep, thought-provoking message for the troubled duo:

“Forgive each other. Be there for each other, and it will work out.”

Seriously, that’s it? That is all the wisdom he would wish to impart to Tiger and Elin? Essentially, forgive and forget is this guy’s motto. This guy is like the Bizarro Maury Povich! Kirton also used the words “charismatic” and “attractive” to describe the two at the wedding and “how, like all the couples he marries, they appeared to be in love. ” Well, that about blows the lid off this story. Good to know.

The Reverend added one more nugget of wisdom obviously derived from years upon years of scripture study, which he advises all couples to follow, not necessarily just Tiger and Elin:

“Remember these four phrases,” he says. “I was wrong. I am sorry. Please forgive me. I love you.”

Holy crap, somebody get this guy a daytime talk show, a nationally-syndicated advice column, anything that can get his overly-simplistic message out to those who are too moronic to figure out these concepts on their own. This guy has got it, folks. I don’t know exactly what, but he’s got it.
