Scotland Officially Awesome, May Let Jedi Officiate Weddings

If you want to have the ultimate Star Wars themed wedding then you should be looking at reception halls in Scotland. If the proposed Marriage and Civil Partnership bill becomes law, then it will allow couples to be married by the usual religious organizations, judges and a member of a group promoting a certain belief. That last bit is the part that possibly opens the door to Jedi Knights.

“The third category is quite astonishing because it is the so-called belief category without really defining what belief means,” said Church spokesman Reverend Iver Martin. “There are loads of people in a diverse society like this for whom belief can mean virtually anything – the Flat Earth Society and Jedi Knights Society – who knows?

As for the government’s point of view, they’re not going to let people get married all willy-nilly.

“We are proposing the introduction of tests which a religious or belief body would have to meet before they could be authorised to solemnise marriage.”

Tests, huh? Considering the training a Jedi Knight has to endure, passing whatever tests the Scottish government can muster will be a cake walk.
