Jedi Church

Our Batman, who art in Gotham . . .

If the Jedi can have a church, why not Batman? What’s that you say? Star Wars has the Force. Yeah, but Batman can bring down some pretty heavy force, just ask the Joker.

Leading the charge in Batmanism is the humorous and entertaining man in the Dark Knight cowl preaching Batmanism to the masses. Using his amazing knowledge of Batman comics and movies as his scripture, the Gotham Street Preacher went forth into the streets of Birmingham, England to convert the unfaithful to the Church of The Batman.

There is a lot of fertile ground in the Church of The Batman.

Who needs loafs and fishes when you can just reach into your utility belt and draw forth whatever you need no matter what the situation?

Batman sacrificed his only sidekick . . .

What other Batmanisms can you come up with? Let us hear your best in the comments section below.

Every day the internet produces an astounding amount of goodies and gems. Most hilarious, some amusing, but all worth at least a few seconds of your time. We here at Nerd Bastards try to bring you the best bits of news and nerdery the webz has to offer, with a bit of snark thrown in. But sometimes not everything makes the cut.

Monday through Friday we’ll be bringing you our inbox leftovers, our forgotten bookmarks, the nerdy bits that simply slipped through the cracks. You can submit items to Nerdy Bits by emailing us at

Come on, Darth. I don’t know much about fantasy football, but really, you’re picking your kicker!? (Geek Tyrant)


Welcome to the home of the Jedi Church

Jedi Religious Faith

The Jedi Church believes that there is one all powerful force that binds all things in the universe together. The Jedi religion is something innate inside everyone of us, the Jedi Church believes that our sense of morality is innate. So quiet your mind and listen to the force within you!

An Official Religion – Census Issues.

Make sure you answer the religion question correctly. The NZ Census bureau believe that the Jedi answer means “Response outside of scope” or “Answer understood, but will not be counted”, whereas “satanism”, “wican”, “yoga” etc are valid answers. The sheer number of people who entered “Jedi” was a significant in the last census, approximately 20000 in NZ alone (indicative result given confidentially). I note there were more Jedi’s than Assembly of God, or Jehovah’s Witnesses.

In order for the Jedi church to grow, we need access to these statistics just like any other church/order. In the UK the number of people who answered Jedi, were greater than many other common Christian denominations. In fact, in the UK, 2% of people in Brighton are of the Jedi Faith.

It is not against the law to answer Jedi, you are welcome to have any faith you wish. It is the governments responsibility to accept our faith and accurately record the statistics.

All Welcome

The Jedi Church recognises that there is one all powerful force that binds all things in the universe together, and accepts all races and species from all over the universe as potential members of the religion. Join the Jedi Church today!

Our church had 21000 unique visitors last month. The Jedi Church is a good force in the universe.

On the main Jedi Church Page you can read their doctrine, their faith, how to join, how to get a certificate. This is no joke, it is a OFFICIAL recognised church by the census bureau in a general concensus. Australia has 20,000 followers of the Jedi Faith…..Me? I love the idea of it, but the bible seems ficticious enough to me, and The Force IS fiction, so I’d really need a Jedi Master to sit me down and talk me into it!!….
