Tesco mocks harmless religions, will it apply the same standards to Muslims?

H/T Gates of Vienna:

What on the surface is a harmless little nothing story, does reveal a few things. Remember, at one point in time all religions where new, and all seemed absurd. There are lots of records of Moe being properly mocked in Mecca when he tried to peddle his crap there.

Jedi religion founder accuses Tesco of discrimination over rules on hoods. The Guardian UK

Daniel Jones says he was humiliated and victimised for his beliefs following incident at store in Wales

Tesco has been accused of religious discrimination after the company ordered the founder of a Jedi religion to remove his hood or leave a branch of the supermarket in north Wales.

Daniel Jones, founder of the religion inspired by the Star Wars films, says he was humiliated and victimised for his beliefs following the incident at a Tesco store in Bangor.

The 23-year-old, who founded the International Church of Jediism, which has 500,000 followers worldwide, was told the hood flouted store rules.

But the grocery empire struck back, claiming that the three best known Jedi Knights in the Star Wars movies – Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Luke Skywalker – all appeared in public without their hoods. Jones, from Holyhead, who is known by the Jedi name Morda Hehol, said his religion dictated that he should wear the hood in public places and is considering legal action against the chain.

“It states in our Jedi doctrination that I can wear headwear. It just covers the back of my head,” he said.

“You have a choice of wearing headwear in your home or at work but you have to wear a cover for your head when you are in public.”

He said he’d gone to the store to buy something to eat during his lunch break when staff approached him and ordered him to the checkout where they explained he would have to remove the offending hood or leave the store.

“They said: ‘Take it off’, and I said: ‘No, its part of my religion. It’s part of my religious right.’ I gave them a Jedi church business card.

“They weren’t listening to me and were rude. They had three people around me. It was intimidating.” Jones, who has made an official complaint to Tesco, is considering a boycott of the store and is seeking legal advice.

Tesco said: “He hasn’t been banned. Jedis are very welcome to shop in our stores although we would ask them to remove their hoods.

“Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda and Luke Skywalker all appeared hoodless without ever going over to the Dark Side and we are only aware of the Emperor as one who never removed his hood.

“If Jedi walk around our stores with their hoods on, they’ll miss lots of special offers.”

  1. I think he may be a doing this as a publicity stunt. It is the same trick that muslims employ. However, they do it so often that one insightful commentator has used a new term to define it when it is done by muslims and that term is probe. The name of the commentator is Baron Bodissy. By the term probe the Baron means a probing assault which can be employed again and again at the point of weakness once that has be identified. I think this guy is nowhere near that level of sophistication so we should just ignore him and concentrate on the experts.

  2. When you are Muslim, every day is Halaloween!

    I just wanted to add one more thing to it… When you’re mahoundian, every day is also April Fool’s, since there just can’t be enough baseless conspiracy theories that they can come up with to explain away why they, the “best of peoples” (according to Mein Qurampf/The Glory-ass quran), are the epitome of failure, as evidenced by their illiteracy rates, human-development index, human-rights records; lack of economic, social, political and intellectual progress, the practice of slavery in mahoundian-majority countries, and a hell of a lot more crap whose root cause is their sick little inbred bedouin savage cult, mahound-worshipping.
