When it said at the start 'a group of Star Wars fans' what further relevance did you think it had here? ;)

We have a few 'frisco, CA people here. Thought it'd be fun to check out.

I heard a rumor that we had a SW fan, or two, amongst our ranks. (I hope that doesn't *technically* "out" anyone here!)

@Ren, yes to laugh is "good for both the mind and the body"...but to mock?, is this really Jedi? The CoJ council members are just that...CoJ council members, their members are not. @ Metsu as for poaching ppl from groups....i prefer to see it as enlightening them....in that there are other places...not preaching or "soapboxing" to them, just letting them know kindred spirits that can be found elsewhere. My point of joining here was one of curiosity...the ToTJO has a reputation in the community of being compared to that of Catholicism. That said, after speaking to some members such as Akkarin on other sites, i took the plunge. I see a wealth of knowledge here, and some great people. I have not been poached, i have been enlightened :)

Considering what they did to my (our) religion, i think a good laugh is probably the nicest thing we could have done.

They also tried to buy us with donations btw.

It wasn't behind the scenes. Them trying to trademark jediism wasn't behind the scenes either though it was lucky I checked the trademark office...

Before they started the church, they made a video of a jedi service or something... guess where they got the material from.... Then, they go and claim they're the first church of jediism lol.

I would say that they were trying to make us feel as though they could provide for us if we became one of their chapters.

Wow, that was rather beyond arrogant in my opinion.

I agree that it probably wasn't to "buy us out", but I disagree that it was to show us they could care for us. I think it was a show of "look how great we are."
