Newsblast Archive Dateline : September 14, 1999

An Anglican priest in Croydon, a town in southern England, dressed up as Darth Vader to make churchgoing more fun.

His congregation sang new lyrics to the Star Wars theme.

The priest taught how the Lord of the Sith abandoned the dark side and became a good man.

His congregation tripled in size.

Parishioners who didn't tithe were choked with a flick of the priest's wrist.


News Editor Joe Crowe says, "Amen."
