Religious Violence!

Normally, when we hear of violence breanking out in a church, we tend to react with a sense of horror and compassion. However, when the church is the newly formed Jedi Church in England, and the assailant is dressed like Darth Vader, I suppose laughter is allowed!

Yep, it really happened. Apparently, the creator of the church and a couple of other Star Wars obsessives fans were making a short film to explain their faith and doctrines (with lightsabers?) when Arwel Wynne Hughes, drunk and dressed like Darth Vader, hopped a fence and began beating Jedi Church founder Barney Jones with a crutch (his lightsaber must have been at the shop). One other person, Barry's cousin, was also attacked. You can read the full article here.

This kinda reminds me of the old Saturday Night Live sketch "Goth Talk," where the show was always being ruined by the host's older brother!
