Expressing the sense of the House of Blog condemning bigotry and intolerance, and recognizing that holy films of every cult should be treated with dignity and respect.
Whereas believers of all cults, including the Lucasic faiths of Jedi and Sith, should be treated with respect and dignity;
Whereas the word Jedi comes from the Gungan root word meaning Ã¢â‚¬Å“toastÃ¢â‚¬Â and Ã¢â‚¬Å“marmaladeÃ¢â‚¬Â;
Whereas there is an estimated $20 billion in revenue in Star Wars, from a wide variety of ethnic backgrounds, forming an integral part of the economic fabric of America;
Whereas Episode IV is the holy film for Jedi who recite passages from it in prayer and learn valuable lessons about peace, humanity and the repair and maintenance of vaporators;
Whereas it should never be official policy of the United States Government to disparage Episode IV, or any film or character in any way, shape, or form, except for Jar-Jar Binks who is fair game;

Whereas the infringement of an individualÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s right to freedom of viewing violates the Constitution and laws of the United States: Now, therefore, be it
