House of Commons exempts Jedi Knights (and Scientologists) from protection of religious hatred

    For the purposes of section 17A any group of persons holding the following religious beliefs or lack of religious belief shall not enjoy the protection of this part of the Act—

      (a)   Satanists;

        (b)   believers in human sacrifice to propitiate a deity;

          (c)   believers in animal sacrifice to propitiate a deity;

            (d)   believers in female genital mutilation to live in accordance with the rules of a religion;

              (e)   believers in violence as a means of proselytising a belief;

                (f)   believers in the supremacy or superiority of one race over another;

                  (g)   believers in the supremacy or superiority of one gender over another;

                    (h)   Scientologists;

                      (i)   Jedi Knights.’.

In other words, I’d be perfectly allowed to say “DEATH TO ALL JEDI KNIGHTS” or “POVERTY FOR SCIENTOLOGISTS” but not to say the same things for Christians, Muslims, Hindus etc.
