A sad day for Jediism in the UK, it has been ruled that Jedi is not a religion as it didn’t ‘promote moral or ethical improvement’ for charity law purpose in England and Wales. On the BBC Website it states:
“In the 2011 census, 177,000 people declared themselves Jedi under the religion section, making it the seventh most popular religion.The following began as a tongue-in-cheek response from some atheists on the UK’s 2001 census when a question on religious belief was asked for the first time.”
It is the moral and ethical section that gets me. At the same time this news is coming out, it seems there has been another possible terrorist incident in Berlin. It’s about time we started introducing religions that were indeed moral and ethical.
