The Church of Jedi

Dracula
By Dracula

In the 2001 census, nearly 400,000 people in the UK said that their religion was "jedi." Years later, Star Wars enthusiasts (and brothers) Barney and Daniel Jones decided to make it a reality:

And now Barney and musician Daniel, 21 - or Master Morda Hehol, self-appointed UK "church" leader

"It’s serious," said Barney. "We will have teachings based on Yoda - the 900-year-old grand master - as well as readings, essays submitted, meditation and relaxation, visualisation and discuss healthy eating.

"The Jedi religion is about life improvement, inner peace and changing your lifestyle so you have a more fulfilling existence. "It’s based on the films but we have brought things into it because the films are a bit more sci-fi.

But we have developed on the film’s teachings, introducing teachings we believe the Jedi Knights would seek. We used to watch the films over and over again and it came about from that."

I'm still amazed and much more convinced over the "Use the force". At least it's not just all talk. You really need to use some 'force' in your life.

Do Transylvanians look like Muppets and wield light sabres?

I think not. Yoda is the ancestor of the infamous 'Swiss Family Robinson', and as such he is responsible for some terribly painful songs and at least one ridiculous movie.

He should be punished, not worshipped!

Did you know that Yoda's ancestors colonised Switzerland in pre-historic times?

Hence the Swiss national call, 'Yoda Lay Eee Dee'...
