Temple of the Jedi Order appiles as a "religion" in England & Wales, gets denied
https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/sy...CISION.pdf

The Order's stated purpose is:
Quote:To advance the religion of Jediism, for the public benefit worldwide, in accordance with the Jedi Doctrine … [and ] To advance such charitable purposes (according to the law of England and Wales) as the Trustees see fit from time to time.

Maybe they should have gone more for the "charity" angle instead Laugh out load

If we came from dust, then why is there still dust?

Come on, all they need to do is Jedi Mind Trick the government.

It's all a plot of the Siths who control England and Wales.

It'd be accepted in Sweden I think. I recall a few years back posting about there being a guy getting his need to go to metal concerts as a religious freedom and Kopimism being fought for as a religion.

I'm not sure that scientology is recognized as a "real" religion in the UK.

Sadly it is. Or at least has charitable status.

I guess you can afford to be charitable when you're brainwashing people into giving you all of their money and hiring indentured servants to work for you. Consider

The theological foundations of the Jedi Order (in real life) is very similar to that of zen buddhism and articulate their cosmology in a form of pantheism. When I was in colledge, in class on world religion, I made a paper on them. There is apparently 30K of them in Canada where they are recognised as a religion. In that, they are much better than scientology. At least, Jedis didn't blackmailed and attempted to kill people.

They got land and money then have it to the government, suddenly then they were a real religion.

These jedis need to make it clear they're offering a totally still existing planet Alderon as a condition towards their legitimacy.
