The point is that putting your religious affiliation as "none" would be more useful.


Why? The whole idea of putting Jedi was to mock organised religion. Everyone that studies the data knows what the meaning is.

I submit that, despite it not being written on the census, that Dudeism is if not bigger, than a very close second as a popular religion.

Gotta love a religion created to honor a character in the most awesomely funny movie ever.
