And Now, in News of Religion from Elsewhere…

May 15, 2008

And now, in news of religion from elsewhere… perhaps a galaxy far, far away???

In Wales, a man dressed as Darth Vader received a suspended sentence after he struck the founder of the local Jedi church with a crutch. The founder of the church, Master Jonba Hehol,  and his cousin, Master Mormi Hehol, were both attacked. Perhaps “Darth” should just have tried the Force instead of a crutch.  Somehow I don’t think Master Yoda would approve.
