Jedi Church - A new religion is under the spot light.
Being a write that loves comedy and serious issues life such as religion, an article today sparked of my curiosity. You see I happen to be a big fan of Star War’s, yes I have all the movies and each year. I have a Star wars session by viewing them all one after the other its a marathon event I hold on a holiday week end.
It’s very apparent that the religion related to the films has a growing popularity especially in Brighton a South east coastal town of Great Briton. Where it’s claimed 2% of the population are members of the Jedi Church.
Jedi Religious Faith
The Jedi Church believes that there is one all powerful force that binds all things in the universe together. The Jedi religion is something innate inside everyone of us, the Jedi Church believes that our sense of morality is innate. So quiet your mind and listen to the force within you!
Actually I believe this religion to be simple and more attractive than the other boring religions and as yet this religion has only caused wars and struggles on the silver screen. However it would seem that Tesco’s supermarkets in UK has restricted a leading member of this faiths religious right to wear religious dress in one of its branches
The founder of the Jedi religion inspired by the Star Wars films was thrown out of a Tesco supermarket for wearing his distinctive brown hood.
Daniel Jones, 23, who has 500,000 followers worldwide, was told the hood flouted store rules and was ordered to remove it or leave the supermarket.
This action by Tesco’s (a Jewish founded supermarket stores) is appalling. The Jedi faith says members are to wear their wonderful brown hoods in public. Yet if I was to wear the Jewish, Christian, Islamic or even dressed up as a Buddhist Monk I could shop without someone tapping me on the shoulder and banned from the store. Now I have seen nuns in Tesco’s and they have defiantly not been told to remove their head dress.
I really hate this anti-Jedism, yes it maybe a church in its infancy, but its registered as a religion and its followers do not wave laser swords nor wish to pick fights with other religions. They are defiantly not anti-semantic so why are Tesco’s banning the Jedi religious dress from their stores?
So far I can not find any thing wrong with the Jedi Faith seemingly all the followers are upstanding and morally sound. They are really pantheists of which in fact is as old as the Islamic belief. None of the followers are taught any fanaticism such that could lead them in to terrorism.
Being a fan of Star War’s I have a great understanding of their faith and as far as I can tell there is no one following the dark side of the Jedi Faith.
