May the Force be with you

StatsCan released the latest census figures on religion, and the results were pretty predictable. Most Canadians are Christian, there are a bunch of Muslims and Jews . . . but 20,000 claimed to be Jedi: (via Jon)

The 20,000 Canadian followers of Obi-Wan Kenobi pose little threat to the major religions.

That number came as a result of an e-mail campaign that urged people to respond “Jedi” when asked about their religion in the 2001 Census. Similar campaigns were even more successful in other countries such as Britain, where more people said they were Jedis than called themselves Jews.

Canada’s Jedis are concentrated in British Columbia, Alberta and Ontario.

May the force be with you.
