See! They told you so! First we let Adam and Eve become Adam and Steve now we have to agree to marry Qui Gon Jin to Mace Windu.
Why? Because Scotland is planning an amendment to the current Civil Partnership and Marriage laws which will allow any group purporting a belief to conduct weddings.
The government claims it’s to allow humanists to perform marriages, however the Free Church of Scotland says it will allow anyone with a belief to officiate at weddings.
More than a 100,000 such “knights” exist in the UK according to the last Census.
“There are loads of people in a diverse society like this for whom belief can mean virtually anything – the Flat Earth Society and Jedi Knights Society – who knows?” says church spokesman the Rev Iver Martin.
“I am not saying that we don’t give place to that kind of personal belief, but when you start making allowances for marriages to be performed within those categories then you are all over the place.”
I think someone should tell Rev. Martin that the Jedi Knights are a joke religion. The Jedi don’t believe that they can deflect bullets with lightsabers. And if anything there would be a schism between Republic and post Republic Jedi philosophies since one allows marriage and the other does not. In fact it’s kind of a major schism.
And all because we want to let gays marry each other. Such a slippery slope.
Why it’s like the sliding increases in the powers of Palpatine and indeed Jacen Solo when they both usurped power… Where will it stop!
