Hosting a Jedi service in a physical building
We don't have to assume it is because they want to quash his faith.
Save for the fact that was amongst the reasons given for their denial of his request...
Aye, I did see that, and in a sane world, you might believe the reasons given had something to do with the truth. For better or worse, I deal with organisations all day, lots of them say no - at least for a while, you just gotta talk to the right level of idiot, and when you finally get through to someone who has the authority (or knowledge, or interest) to say Yes, you find out that all the reasons you were given for "No" up until that point were basically just made up.
Most dingbats you meet or deal with are about as interesting as NPCs in a computer game - they have two or three lines they can say, and they add flavour to the world, but if you want to advance the plot you have to find the right mook.
Until then, everyone is just telling you that you can't use their building because they took an arrow to the knee.

No problems here except the usual Monday morning ones. I'm sure you know how that goes. Currently I'm fighting a parrot infestation over on my journal board. Darned thing showed up this morning and started squawking like a wounded duck. Pretty soon it learned to say something coherent but all it could do was repeat what I said. I tried to shoo it away and for now its gone. If it comes back though I may have to put it down.

Another thread, another derailment. Is it Monday already?
What about public preaching? I see people do it all the time over in Loughborough. Set up a stand, and instead of shouting out stuff, wait for questions?
This has gone a bit off the tracks
Take it as a lesson in public appeal - Violent parrots are far more interesting than sermons in dusty buildings.
Get a violent parrot out, people stop and listen!
Shake off the trappings of bygone eras (except for the pirate era, I guess) and make a faith than deals with today's problems!
Some mature language, viewer discretion is advised.
The first day the bird is with the pirate one of the crew falls off the ship. The pirate yells “Man overboard!” And so the parrot learns: man overboard.
A couple of days later one of the crew yells that a man got stuck up by the crows nest and the pirate yells “throw him a rope and bring him down!” And so the parrot learns: throw him a rope and bring him down.
At this point the parrot hasn’t said a single word. The pirate thinks the guy who sold him was lying and is happy with his good fortunes. Later that day the pirate sits down for dinner and takes a bite of the food and spits it out screaming “Oh damn this is hot shit!” And so the parrot learns: Oh damn this is hot shit.
Saturday night as they sail towards land to go to church, they are good pirates after all, one of the men calls out “Icebergs ahead, icebergs ahead!” They ship turns bit still hits part of it and the pirate says “Hot damm, hit a big one!” And so the bird learns: Icebergs ahead and Hot damn hit a big one.
The next day at church the pirate and his crew are sitting there listening to the preacher giving his sermon.
“Our God up in Heaven..” And out of nowhere the parrot calls out “Throw him a rope and bring him down!”
The preacher turns to the pirate “Silence that bird now!” And the parrot calls out “Damn this is hot shit!” The preacher screams at the pirate “Get out over here now!” And the parrot calls out “Man overboard!”
The preacher is so mad he is turning red. In a fit of rage he grabs his bible and cocks his arm back and the parrot calls out “Icebergs ahead, icebergs ahead!” The preacher throws the Bible at the same time a large lady in the front row stands up and turns towards the pirate and his parrot. The Bible slams into the back of the woman’s head. The parrot calls out “Hot damn hit a big one! Hot damn hit a big one!”
