Czech Republic Sees Rise of ‘Jedi Knights’ as Religious Movement
“The rise of the Jedi religion, whether serious or not, shows a strong turn away from organized religion. Nearly 1.1 million people declared themselves Roman Catholic on this census, making it the country’s most popular religion. But that’s a sharp decline from the 2001 numbers, where 2.8 million listed themselves as Roman Catholic. Also striking: nearly half the population, 4.8 million people, refused to answer the religion question.”
So, how do we get those kinds of percentages?
A great Hollywood movie, which portrays and glamorizes reason and the rejection of superstitions, would certainly help. I was hoping that the 2011 film, "The Ledge" would have an impact. But, it was sadly disappointing.
