Somebody else posted that Bob let himself be baptised because his mother always wanted him to, so he wanted to do it before he "died". If that's so, then he did it out of love and respect for his mother, what could be wrong or hypocritical about that. Maybe he felt JAH wouldn't care if he got dunked in some water or not, so why not do something to please his mother that he loved.
Maybe people on the board who knew Bob personally like Sis. Makeda could shed some light on this matter.
Long live the prophet Hon. Ras Robert Nesta Marley, O.M., a true souljah, his words and works will always live on.
