A Question on Signatures was created by Darren
Since joining the Order, I've been seeing Jedi with signatures saying "Rite: Buddhist" or "Rite: Pure Land." I've assumed this is their previous religion that they've supplemented with Jediism. Is this right? And what is Pure Land?

In the "old days", PureLand (spell it how you like, I like like that) are "The Force" only.... No God, No Allah

Whereas Christian Jedi, may say Christian rite, Buddhist say Buddhist rite....

Now some say S.I.G, or SIG, for Special Interest Group....

There's no need to declare, some us do though....

Does that help?

On walk-about...

Sith ain't Evil...
Jedi ain't Saints....

Well the 'rites' are sort of like that yes

You can be a Christian Jedi and you can be a Buddhist Jedi and a Jewish Jedi etc...

Jediism can be supplemented with pretty much every religion

My signature says 'Pure Land' because Jediism is the only religion I'm affiliated with

Pure Land is basically just Jediism by itself

The rites were renamed 'Special Interest Groups', you'd have to ask maybe Br John or another council member the reasoning for that

I personally don't care much about semantics :)

rites were renamed special interest groups because they were confusing people, some felt they were pushed into choosing a rite, etc.

Convictions are more dangerous foes of truth than lies.
