By all real world standards the followers of the “Jedi way” would be considered cult members and not followers of a religion. This cult never did achieve the critical mass necessary to earn the “religion” status yet Tarkin refers to it as a religion when talking to Vader in ANH. It could have been the politically correct thing to say at the time even though Tarkin clearly outranked Vader. Was it common knowledge at the time that Vader was a Jedi? Are Jedi/Sith practitioners of the same cult/religion? Two sides of the same coin? Catholics vs. Protestants? Does that idea fit into the latest E.U. theory that neither the light side or dark side is good or evil but merely shades of gray? What is the name of this cult/religion anyway? I seem to have a lot of questions and not enough answers. Your thoughts?
