True persecution

Atheists have a bit of a siege mentality going on when it comes to being a persecuted minority in the US. But they’re not the hardest done by… that’d be the Jedis…

“The founder of the Jedi religion inspired by the Star Wars films was thrown out of a Tesco supermarket for wearing his distinctive brown hood.”

Imagine if that was someone wearing a burka.

He got upset, and took them to court. Here’s the report.

Tesco’s response was priceless. A prime example of treating a fool according to their folly:

“But Tesco hit back in the spirit of the epic space saga and claimed that the three most well known Jedi Knights in the Star Wars movies – Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker – all appeared in public without their hoods.”


Amy says:

Never thought I’d say this but Tesco=awesome.

Amy says:

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


Raj says:

Let me get this right – you’re ragging on someone whose belief system doesn’t align with your own. Would the reaction be the same if it was a hooded monk ?

And yet, Atheists are smug ?

Pot. Kettle. Black.

Nathan says:

Or Raj,

I thought the story was funny. I could direct you to some atheist sites – like the Friendly Atheist – that did the same thing.

You, my friend, need to develop a sense of humour. But wait. Atheists don’t have those (generally) when it comes to talking to Christians. And you can’t believe that we might.

That is all.

Go home.
