Because Everybody Is Entitled To My Opinion

"O LORD, revive thy work in the midst of the years, . . . in wrath remember mercy" (Habakkuk 3:2).
"Wilt thou not revive us again: that thy people may rejoice in thee?" (Psalm 85:6)

Use the Force - to Avoid Jail

Only in Great Britain I guess. There is an official church that follows the percieved beliefs of the Jedi from the Star Was films. A man dressed as Darth Vader attacks two "Jedi" masters with a metal crutch. 'Darth Vader' spared jail in Jedi attacks - Criminal weirdness says:
Arwel Wynne Hughes, 27, attacked Jedi church founder Barney Jones — aka Master Jonba Hehol — with a metal crutch, hitting him on the head, prosecutors told Holyhead Magistrates' Court.

He also whacked Jones' 18-year-old cousin, Michael Jones — known as Master Mormi Hehol — bruising his thigh in the March 25 incident, prosecutors said.
How did he get caught?
Unfortunately for Hughes, his March attack was recorded on a video camera that the cousins had set up to film themselves in a light saber battle.

Well there you have it. A church of the Jedi complete with ritual light saber duels. Can this world get any weirder? Maybe. The 2001 census in the UK say 390,000 people listed their religion as "Jedi".
