So why do 12 Tribes call themselves "Rasta" when they are more like followers of the EOC? Don't get me wrong, I have no "problem" with this "prophet" Dr. Carrington (although I do have a problem with doctors) and I have no problem with the EOC (obviously). But why call yourselves "Rastafarian" if Ras Tafari is not your God? Did followers of Malcolm X call themselves Malcolmian? No. They were MUSLIMS who followed the guidance of Malcolm X. So why do 12 Tribesmen not call themselves CHRISTIANS who follow the guidance of HIM?
