Jedi Delusions

AHN reports that the Jedi are fighting for their rights.

Two self-proclaimed Jedi Knights have petitioned the United Nations to officially recognize their faith as a religion.

 

John Wilkinson and Charlotte Law, who calls themselves Umada and Yunyun based on their Jedi “religion,” have told the U.N. that the Jedi is worthy of being called a religion.

 

The petition came after a 2001 census in the U.K. showed that some 400,000 people “practice” the Jedi belief as their faith.

 

They also want the world body to rename the International Day for Tolerance to Interstellar Day of Tolerance.

 

Umada and Yunyun said, “For the last ten years the United Nations has marked the International Day of Tolerance. While we support this important work, we feel the U.N. needs to move with the times.

 

Like the U.N., the Jedi Knights are peacekeepers and we feel we have the basic right to express our religion through wearing our robes, and to be recognized by the national and international community

These “Jedi” must be pretty deluded to believe they are actually real-life peacekeepers. But I guess many people have such misguided views about the UN.
