Ok,since Jedi knight is an officially recognised religion since the 2001 UK census.

How about a Jedi Court .. Council of Master Jedi's?.
I mean,fair is fair.
If Sharia courts are a new UK practise then why not?

Does that mean we can make up our own laws/punishments/guidelines too?

(Yeah,I was one of those who participated.)

Suggestions for points of order/proceedings welcomed.

We Sith choose not to be recognized by any such Jedi council

My young apprentice, Stevan Segal, shall bring great peril to your established Jedi order.

I like to think im quite opened minded about things. I have no problem with other people who are different to me, be it Gay, vegetarian, Emo, Muslim, Atheist etc etc

But to have a seperate legal system in the country I live in for people of a different religion seems absurb. Who knows maybe the Satanists will want their own legal system next.

Surely when you live in a country you are bound by its rules and laws, and if also by religious laws then they should be those of the country *shrug*

I think it's heading on to dangerous territory granting a law system to one religion and not to another.

Would denial of another system be grounds for anti-religion proceedings?

It could be a gateway to denying recognition of the British judicial system.

"Yes officer,of course I can carry a loaded Broadsword,I'm a member of King Arthur's 'round table' religion,Your laws do not apply to me..All your maidens are belong to us "

hey you never gave us the King aurthur option

its a slippery slope, once you grant it to one faith can you realistically deny any other faith

how far do you allow these courts to go if they demanded ful sharia law rights then they are granted the right to stone people to death and remove limbs

the toe is in the door how far will it force its way in when no ones paying attention

and then would denying them the new powers be anti religeous

one nation one law multipul beliefs ... you dont like it your not bieng forced to be here what ever your religeon or place of birth

I thought they just counted it as an anomoly. We need a repeat in 2011 and then add Star Wars to the national curriculum.

Thats cool that the UK considers Jedi's to be a religion.

As far as being a sith with steven segal at your command I will now one up you.

I too am a sith but I have something much worse than steven segal at my beckon call. Although I do have segals music to terrorize with, I can make gary buesy manifest at anytime anywhere. imagine that. nothing is worse than being locked in a room with gary buesy. thats how I punish people by making him appear while people are stuck in elevators and other confined spaces. some sith make lightening bolts shoot out of their fingers I conjure buesy. my special sith trick.

Seriously though. almost all of star wars's jedi/sith ideas come directly form taoism. more correctly Shaolin Taoism/buddhism. Infact the shaolin try to stay on the positive side of things. enlightened not straying from the light so to speak. However there is "dark" taoism. a shaolin monk known as "white eyebrow" went over to the dark side. he used his Qi Gong- techniques to master ones inner chi or prana to manipulate and influence others. he was the real darth vader. he went on to kill 5 shaolin masters (jedi) including the great Fong sai-yook. "white eyebrow" was eventually killed by a shaolin who created a new style of gong fu to avenge his fathers death.

Most of the jedi sotries are similar to toaist ideology and the history of the shaolin monks. that coupled with the fact that george lucas' best friend whom he credits to giving him the ideas of the jedi for his story was a specialist in taoist history. along with other asian philosophies.

so these Jedi in UK are really just taoists.

I agree.
The laws preventing parents from properly disciplining their own kids have led to the criminal state we are in now.
Now they're allowing a world-wide criticized system for others.

After spending a lot of time in the M.E, I am a staunch supporter of allowing other countries the right to their own laws..and respecting the laws of the country to which you are a guest,I've made no secret of that.

Are Muslims going to allow British/Western/Roman Catholic/Jewish law courts in their lands?did I miss that announcement?

I think it's against the law to use the force against a policeman already.

Very good,and overlooked point.
If I now declare my obedience to the Jedi law,could I refuse to swear on the Bible in a 'British' case?Refusing to recognise it's existence.

As leading Jedi-master I now declare all debts void.
All current laws void.
Land is now owned by the person standing on it at the time.

Now who's with me storming area 51 and liberating an X-wing.?

how are the cops gunna proove that you used the force against them. its perfect!

Personally I would use the jedi mind influence at bars to pick up on women.

(waves hand) "you want to go home with me." "you find me completely infatuating and you can't resist the urge to get better acquainted with me." (know what I mean? nudge nudge, wink wink)

We have a problem, we only have a few films and books and need to determine Jeddi law, should we look for a sufficiently respected Jedi Council?

originally it was christian faith based

then we had the whole seperation of church from state deal and it went to common values

you swear on what ever book your perticular faith considers holy christians the bible jews the torrah muslims the koran

ok so if we have 2 legal systems

if i can get the justice i want under the laws of sharia court but not under mainstream law i would simply use sharia to get what i want ... the fact im not muslim has nothing to do with it, if its a legal system then i have a right to access to it, not allowing me to makes it discrimanating system so i can then sue shaira law courts so they are forced to handel none muslim cases as well

but if im not allowed to use sharia court then that should mean muslims arnt allowed to use mainstream law either

we now have 2 systems forced to work independantly for 2 seperate groups of people

the law is based on common values of the people of greatbritain what ever religeous values they hold make no differance(or shouldnt at any rate) can the same be said of sharia courts

and again how far should they be allowed to take the law system? what point does sharia stop and mainstream take over? would allowing some but not all of sharia law be anti-islamic?
