Description

Jediism is a religious movement based on the philosophical and spiritual ideas of the Jedi as depicted in Star Wars media.

Practitioners identify themselves with the Jedi Knights in Star Wars, believe in the existence of the Force and that interaction with the Force is possible. Believers align themselves with the moral code demonstrated by the fictional Jedi. One Jedi church described the religion as syncretistic, incorporating beliefs from various religions including Christianity, Buddhism, Taoism and Shintoism.

George Lucas has cited history as his inspiration for creating the Force, saying in a Wired interview: Similar phrases have been used extensively by many different people for the last 13,000 years to describe the 'life force'.

During the drafting of the UK Racial and Religious Hatred Act, an amendment was proposed that excluded Jedi Knights from any protection. Jediism was excluded from a 2010 UK Act protecting organizations such as the Church of Scientology from discrimination. In 2009, a Jedi was banned from a Tesco Supermarket in Bangor, North Wales, for refusing to remove his hood on a religious basis. The following year, a Jedi was thrown out of a Jobcentre in Southend, Essex, for refusing to remove his hood; he later received an apology.
