Closed-Minded Retailer Tesco Bans Jedi Religious Garb

The persecution never ends for the Jedi, does it? First, they were nearly all murdered by one of their own. Then, just when they’ve built a presence on modern Earth, a grocery store in Wales tells a practicing Jedi that he can’t wear the hood of his robe up in their stores. Bigotry!

The founder of the UK Jedi Church refused to take down his hood, insisting that he must keep it covering his head at all times when out in public.

Mr Jones, also known by his Jedi name Morda Hehol, told The Sun: “I told them it was a requirement of my religion but they just sniggered and ordered me to leave.

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

The handbook of the UK Jedi Church, founded by the Star Wars fan last year, states: “Jedis must wear a hood up in any public place of a large audience.”

Daniel added: “It was discrimination. I was really upset. Nobody should be treated like that.”

“I’ll advise worshippers to boycott Tesco if it happens again. They will feel the Force.”

Ah, but if you boycott them now, they will come back even more powerful than you can possibly imagine.
