Do those organizations have entire temples (yes plural) that they consider "sacred", though?[/quote] Again, we're facing the difficulty of defining "religion." The word itself come from the latin verb religare, which means "to tie, to bound together." The most non-specific definition of what "religion" is should include: - a distinction between sacre and profane things - belief in one or several supernatural entities (not necessarily faith or worship, just belief) - a moral code that is belevied to have a supernatural basis - ritual acts - a global view of the world and how individuals fit into it and relate to each others - certain forms of communication with the supernatural - a social group bound together by all of the above. The Jedi certainly fit that picture. Ergo, "Jediism" is a religion.
