Maybe you're missing this...baptism = conversion = accepting Jesus Christ as your Saviour etc. etc.
Now, it seems Bob remained Rasta until the end, and man, I just don't think one converts or gets baptised for the love of his mother; by the way, his mother turned Rasta too, so then?
I mean, if your mama was Muslim and you were Rasta and about to die, would you become Muslim to please your mother??? Come on.
