    10 members of the police force registered Jedi as there religion!

    Are there any Jedis in the Hub religion forum, are you happy to finally be able to come out?

    Eight police officers serving with Scotland's largest force listed their official religion as Jedi in voluntary diversity forms, it has emerged.

    This is a quote from that BBC article

    "Last year, brothers Barney and Daniel Jones founded the UK Church of the Jedi - which offered sermons on the Force, light sabre training, and meditation techniques."

    They left out sermons for Jedi Mind Trick. I would've liked to see them teach that lol

    I wonder how they make they light sabre sounds during training?? lol

    I thought my eldest son may convert to Jedi at one point, but a few more birthdays intervened and stopped that from happening.  (There are worse religions than Jedi, I think though.   smile  )

    Pretty sensible really compared to most religions.

    I registered as Jedi just to stir the pot. I was a practicing pagan at the time and thought it might be fun. smile

    And for those raising an eyebrow at my profile, I *did* live in the UK at the time!
