Jedi May Sue for Religious Rights

This article came to my attention, and I thought it should be shared.

The founder of International Church of Jediism was ordered by a store to leave or uncover his head, something that violates the tenets of Jediism. Jediism, a religion based on the Jedi Code of Star Wars, has an estimated 500,000 followers worldwide.

However, it should be noted, in defense of Tesco, that in a 2006 British bill to protect religious freedom, Jediism was specifically excluded all with Satan worshipers.

I, for one, am interested in seeing how this plays out.


  1. Very interesting. Please let us know what happens.

  2. LW -- I'm curious as to how this is going to turn out, so I'll have my ears perked for further news.

    On a side note, yesterday I could hardly keep from feeling like a Jedi whenever I put on a hood. This, though, did not inspire a conversion to Jediism.
