Whoa... when did Haile Selassie ever claim to be divine? He only claimed descent from a biblical line.When interviewed in Canada 1967 and asked about people who said he was God his reply was that he had met with rastafarians and told them it was wrong to deify man. I think you should read up a bit more on the history of HIM Selassie, he never claimed to be Divine.
