"Jedi Knight" now 7th most popular religion in UK

First it was Darth Vader joining the Lutheran Church in Iceland...

...and now the "ancient religion" of the Jedi is the seventh most practiced faith in the United Kingdom! Nearly 180,000 people in Great Britain and Wales put their religion as "Jedi Knight" during that country's most recent census.

The warrior-monk creed from the Star Wars saga came in after Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, Sikhism, Judaism and Buddhism.

Ehhhhh, Star Wars ubergeek though I be, this would be going too far in my book.

But then again, Star Wars mixing it up with religious practices can have some pretty fun results...

(Please forgive me Jeff, but I've been wanting to use that pic for a long long time... :-P )
