With You, The Force Be

A religion, belief in Jedi Knights is.

Say proponents: Formally recognize Jedi adherents, the UN should. Tolerance, it must promote!
Umada, 27, and Yunyun, 24, both from London, want the day to be renamed the ‘Interstellar Day of Tolerance’ to reflect millions of people across the globe who have chosen to follow the Jedi code as a religion and truly reflect social diversity.
‘Like the UN, the Jedi Knights are peacekeepers and we feel we have the basic right to express our religion through wearing our robes, and to be recognised by the national and international community.

We therefore are calling upon the United Nations Association to change November 16 to the UN Interstellar Day of Tolerance, to reflect the religious make-up of our twenty-first century civilisation.

Trivialize faith, does this? Offend you, does it? No doubt, going to hell I am, but say I: through the night, whatever gets you:

Without saying it should go: In Yoda-speak, your comments frame.

(Love my Apple Yoda widget, I do.)

Comments in: Starts us out right, Jimmy the Dhimmi does: Breaking of the new British religious anti-defamation laws the critics of Episode II will be.

Out Loud, Laughing.

UPDATE: A Jedi religion website, there is. Know I didn't that perfect my shower can be for meditation:
Meditate in some very uncomfortable position in the shower, water hitting as squarely as posible on the top of your head, with the water just a few degrees colder than comfortable. If your house has a small water heater, this will work even better, because as you use up the hot water, it will slowly get colder. Meditate so deeply within your inner self that you do not notice the tempterature of the water, or even the fact that it is falling on you.

To help gain this, I recommend getting about 5-6 candles, and lighting them near the shower/tub, but not where they will get wet, or catch anything on fire...then turn out the internal lights and let the dim light help to take you out of the normal feeling.

Tipping hat, I am.
