The fate of the Jedi

A couple of people were wondering what happened to the Jedi in the census religion stats. A story in the Dominion-Post has the answer:

And for those of you who were wondering what happened when you wrote down "Jedi", the cheeky reply was lumped into the "response outside scope" category.

However, census general manager Nancy McBeth told The Dominion Post there were more than 20,200 followers of the force - down from 54,000 in 2001.

No news on the Cthulhu cult, however.


"No news on the Cthulhu cult, however."

Che: R'yleh has risen; I'd expect them to be taking a higher profile.

Unless "that which is not dead can eternal lie" refers to their legendary inability to get out of bed in the morning.

Thankfully, this isn't the first time that the Jedi ranks have been thinned out. And with 20,000 adherents, we're still twice as numerous as the Salvation Army and outnumber the Quakers twenty to one.

If they strike us down, we will return more powerful than they can possibly imagine, eh.
