What is this handbasket we’re in, and where is it going?

God is to Satan as Jedi is to *blank*

There are two forces at work in the world, struggling for dominance everyday. These are the forces of good and the forces of evil – the yin and the yang, the divine and the wicked, and, of course, the light side and the dark side. Two of the founders of the Church of Jediism in Wales experienced this cosmic struggle firsthand in March when they were assaulted by a maniacal, drunken, crutch-wielding Darth Vader. I guess he left his lightsabre on Hoth.

According to the Associated Press:

A man who dressed up as Darth Vader, wearing a garbage bag for a cape, and assaulted the founders of a group calling itself the Jedi church was given a suspended sentence Tuesday.

Arwel Wynne Hughes, 27, attacked Jedi church founder Barney Jones – aka Master Jonba Hehol – with a metal crutch, hitting him on the head, prosecutors told Holyhead Magistrates’ Court.

He also whacked Jones’ 18-year-old cousin, Michael Jones – known as Master Mormi Hehol – bruising his thigh in the March 25 incident, prosecutors said.

Apparently Hughes was foiled and caught by the authorities when his crusade against the Jedi was recorded by a camera set up by the two cousins to record a lightsabre fight. But the damage has been done and the message made clear: no longer will the practitioners of the light side run things unchecked.
