    jedi have bad traits that other religions have. i mean having a council, you'd think they would come up with better decisions. yoda clearly states that there's danger in obi-wan training anakin, but when obi-wan objects because he promised qui gon jin he would train anakin, yoda should have just excommunicated obi-wan right that instant. instead, a little bit of casualness on yoda's part allows anakin to get training.

    also the whole "can't have a wife" thing really shows how backwards the jedi council is. I mean if anakin was really going to end up a sith, why would it have really mattered if he had a wife or not? if anything, if he wasn't so paranoid about the council finding out and something bad happening to padme, probably nothing would have happened, and even if something did, i doubt it would have been as bad as what actually happened.

    the jedi seem to spout off how "good" they are, with morality, but are they really? they just interject themselves in every conflict, consistently insist that their way is the best, and have no problems going to neutral star systems to set up guerrilla rebels to fight current regimes all in the smokescreen of "justice"

    basically the jedi are as responsible for the creation of vader as anakin was himself. and honestly the circumstances he was put in with jedi doomed him from the beginning.

    this is why religion is flawed, simply "having" cookies & signing up because of it leads to the dark ages/crusades & beheading.

    many questions need to be answered, what kind of cookies? are they free or do I have to tithe for them or even offer sacrifices to the dark side? is there milk to go with the cookies or is that extra? or worse, is milk forbidden? there are many things that are called "cookies" & they are far from it; I just don't have faith in the system anymore :p

    Hmmm...... that, is an idea. ;)

    Unfortunately, the recent years have seen a serious degradation in the quality of Girl Scout Cookies.
    Will have to replace the current vendor.

    Chocolate Covered Oreos
    Deep Fried Twinkies
    Sweet Roll Burgers

    Damn, that movie actually makes Maul look like a badass. Something Episode I failed miserably at. (of course it failed at pretty much everything)

    Depends on what era Sith/Jedi we're talking about. Sure, the Fall of the Republic era Jedi had their heads up their asses, but on the other hand Darth Sidious and his idiot Skywalker were just as bad.

    NJO (New Jedi Order) was a lot less restrictive and intrusive as the FotR era, Master Luke realized it wasn't love, or attachments, etc that lead to the Dark Side, it was weakness to the seduction of power. All Jedi hear it, and actively resist it, it's the weakened heart that submits (yes, I'm looking at you Ben/Jacen).

    The Knights of Ren, sadly don't have enough backstory yet to see if they're anything but lackeys for a power hungry man-child.

    With all that said, the modern Sith are nothing but an affront to proud name of the Sith Purebloods.

    I couldn't agree more with this. Darth maul is one of the worst characters in the whole series. He's literally something an 8 year old would come up with. Looks cool (not really) and that's about it. No personality, no character development. We don't even know who he is.

    Darth Maul's face looks like a printed circuit board.

    I'd join any religion with Jar Jar Binks as the Supreme Diety.

    This is easily the most disgusting thing I've ever read on these boards. You should be ashamed of yourself. :mad:

    I'd be willing to convert for a real lightsaber. :D

    ... No good can come of this, but I see what you did there! ;)

    I'd be willing to convert for a lifetime supply of chocolate mint cookies. :D

    I'm just waiting for the darkside to come offer me a lightsaber (preferably purple) and a life time supply of chocolate mint cookies and I'd be the most fanatic Sith Lord in the galaxy.

    I'd do it only for the Peanut Butter Patties, or maybe the Samoas.

    Though really, I'd join anything so long as they tell me I'm pretty.

    Dealing with the Sith, a "lifetime's supply" of anything maybe a single box.:eek:

    Darth Vader: *handing me a box of chocolate mint cookies* Your lifetime's supply of cookies.
    Me: Da-***? This is only one box.:mad:
    Vader: Perhaps you think you're being treated unfairly?
    Me: ...:oops: No.:(
    Vader: Good. You know it would be unfortunate if I had to leave your carcass here.
    Me: This deal is getting worse all the time!

    If that happened, I'd just join the rebels, nobody f***s me over on a cookie deal and gets away with it! Not Vader or any of his emo disciples with role model issues. ... Maybe I wouln't make a good Jedi after all...
