The Force without a hat

Frit is outraged to hear that an individual named Jones, who created the International Church of Jediism, was “victimized over his beliefs” by staff at a British supermarket. The Jedi religion, inspired by the sci-fi films, is practiced by 500,000 around the world and requires believers to cover their heads in public places. But Mr Jones said that staff ejected him from the store over security fears when he refused to remove his hood. "I walked past a Muslim lady in a veil. Surely the same rules should apply to everyone," said Jones. Too right, Jones. In a fair world, all morons deserve equal treatment.
