DOVER has more Jedi than Jews, according to the latest census which also reveals a strong Christian contingency amongst residents.

There are 462 believers of the Star Wars-inspired religion in the district, compared to just 97 who follow Judaism.

SPIRITUAL PEOPLE: Rev Michael Hinton thinks Atheism is a “minority position” within the Dover district reflecting huge support for Christianity

But the combined force of all the Jedi is overwhelmed by the 71,541 Christians in Dover almost three-quarters of the district’s population and the second-highest percentage in Kent.

Express columnist, Rev Michael Hinton, said the number of people claiming to be Jedi in the district is “probably a bit frivolous”.

When asked if the high proportion of Christians was reflected in the number of Dover church-goers, Rev Hinton said: “No, definitely not.

“I think I would say that most people are still spiritual and most people express their spirituality by being loyal to Christianity.

“But they don’t feel the need to practice their Christianity by church-going.”

Figures from the latest National Census were released last month and have revealed some other interesting religious trends in the region.
