The Jedi Religion
There has been a movement in the UK, New Zealand, and Australia to get Jedi nominated as an offically-recognized religion in the 2001 census. While I find this effort entertaining, it is unlikely to work. You can read about it in several articles published in the Sydney Morning Herald:
Star Wars religion makes perfect census (15 Apr 2001)
The force is with ABS, not the Jedi (19 Apr 2001)
Why following the Jedi faith makes perfect census (25 Apr 2001)
Thanks to Randy Cassingham of This is True for pointing me to those articles, and to the numerous locals who originally notified me (way across the pond in the USA) of this movement. Here's more on the movement (27 Jun 2001). And more (16 Nov 2006).
