Luminous beams are we . . .

His Holiness

From Ananova:

Two self-acclaimed Jedi Knights want their faith to be formally recognised.

Umada and Yunyun, also known as John Wilkinson and Charlotte Law, want the UN to acknowledge Jedi is worthy of being called a religion.

It comes after 400,000 people recorded it as their faith in the 2001 Census. [. . .]

There are also said to be 70,000 Jedi knights in Australia, 53,000 in New Zealand, and 20,000 in Canada. [Emphasis added]
Apparently that makes Jedi the fourth largest religion in the UK.

(Insert Star Wars cliche here.)
