Members of the Jedi church believe in the Force, rather than the Holy Ghost. It's a religion barely two decades old and based off a movie franchise, but there's still a lot the Jedi have in common with other religious groups.

Can't do any worse than any other belief system or some silly school of magic.

Whatever floats their boat, at least I won't have any jedi nut jobs coming to my house preaching.

They don't need to preach.  One wave of their hand and you'll believe anything they say

Sadly many religions seem to think along those lines too.

I think most religions start out over drinks in a bar.
