    Descrimination against the Jedi !

    Supermarket bans Jedi Knight

    The International Church of Jediism has 500,000 members

    The founder of a religion based on the Star Wars movies has accused Tesco of discrimination after he was ejected from one of their stores for wearing a hood.

    Daniel Jones, 23, who founded the International Church of Jediism, was asked to leave the supermarket in Bangor, North Wales as his robes fell foul of Tesco rules which forbid the wearing of 'hoodies' in their premises.

    The leader of the Jedi Church was deemed a security risk by staff and was told to leave. In turn, Jones has accused Tesco of religious discrimination.

    'I told them it was a requirement of my religion but they just sniggered and ordered me to leave,' he told The Daily Telegraph newspaper.

    'I walked past a Muslim lady in a veil. Surely the same rules should apply to everyone.'

    According to the rules of the International Church of Jediism, all members of the religion should wear a hood when in a public place.

    Jones claims the Jedi church, which has its own scriptures and ceremonies, has 500,000 members worldwide.

    Hinting at a threat of 'Store Wars' and a turn to the Dark Side should the ban continue, Jones, who also goes by the Jedi name Morda Hehol, said: 'I'll advise worshippers to boycott Tesco if it happens again. They will feel the Force.'

    A Tesco spokesman said: 'Jedi are very welcome to shop in our stores although we would ask them to remove their hoods.

    'If Jedi walk around our stores with their hoods on, they’ll miss lots of special offers.'

    I agree with Jedi Mora Aehole. Dress codes should only apply to the sane.

    I wonder if he uses the drive up window at the bank, or goes inside?

    The guy has a good point about them letting the muslim lady wear her religious garments. No-matter how rediculous the religion may seem, you can't let one lady by because her religion seems more legit.

    I haven't had any problems entering public places while wearing mine.
    Once that happens I will start complaining.
    The non-pumpkin wearers only have until Nov. 7 to figure it out, so none of it really matters anyway.

    I keep forgeting the secret handshake. So they tend to not let me in most places.

    They also accept home-made wine, as long as it has a screw top.

    Re: Descrimination against the Jedi !

    You are all missing the point, A Jedi is not required to wear a hood in a public place.
    This radical splinter faction is giving the Brotherhood of the Jedi Knights a bad name.

    Think about it, how many times did you see Obi-Wan, Yoda, Annakin etc wearing a hood in the [s]movies[/s], sorry fact based documentaries!

    It's about time someone brought this back into reality.
