Jedi's Demand Recognition: 4th Largest 'Religion' in the UK

Geeks, nerds, dweebs, and other social outcasts of the world are demanding that their 'religion' be taken seriously. That religion? Jedi Knight.

I. Kid. You. Freaking. Not.

That, according to an article in the UK's Daily Mail today. It also claims that:

390,000 people in the UK belong to the religion of 'Jedi Knights'. There are also an estimated 70,000 Jedi knights in Australia, 53,000 in New Zealand and 20,000 in Canada.

Numbers for how many Jedi living in the U.S. were not available, but rumor has it that more Americans think of themselves as Sith than Jedi. Hey, we're just trying to bring order to a chaotic universe!

Actual. Freaking. Quote.

We therefore are calling upon the United Nations Association to change November 16 to the UN Interstellar Day of Tolerance, to reflect the religious make-up of our twenty-first century civilisation.

‘Tolerance is about respecting difference where ever it lies, including other galaxies. Please don't exclude us from your important work. May the Force be with you.’

May the Force be with you too. And may it lead you out of your parent's basement and may you finally get laid!

Hat tip Hauke, who also finds this in the comments:

"I would bet there are more TREKKIES out there - what about OUR relgion? What about OUR basic human rights? We've suffered more, and longer, than those Star Wars nerds! We've been Geeky since the 60's! When is OUR day coming?
Star Trek geeks vs. Star Wars geeks? I feel a civil war brewing.......

UPDATE Bonus: Video! Including retard speaking Wookie, and loser 'translating'!!!!!!!
