15,070 Czechs listed their religion as ‘Jedi’ in the latest census. AFP reports:
“Fifteen thousand adherents, which is the size of a small town, is not a negligible social phenomenon,” Stanislav Drapal, deputy head of the statistical office, told reporters.
In Prague, statisticians registered 3,977 Jedi knights, or 0.31 percent of the capital’s population.
I’m sure the Czech atheists are just thrilled. Yeah, it’s funny and gives us dumb stuff to blog about, but I’m not a fan of people treating their census like it’s a silly meme. Save it for Facebook.
