In Response To: Rasta Identity without Rasta Theology? (Ras Tafari Selasse)
Greets again I Bredrin Tafari Selasse
Raspeck. me whan seh dat I muma would be argueing wit de I in regards to de I use of de term theology whan talking of Rasta, since she always taught dat Rastafari is not a religion but a "Way of Life", an most Rasta me know are of de 'theology' dat all roads lead to Jah, nuh true? ones seem to pride demselves pon dem tolerance, (except whan ones Hail Jesus as dem Lord an Saviour), so given de fact dat Rasta is not a religion, an most thru dem tolerance will accept differing beliefs of different Rastafari, why would it upset de I if ones still call dem selves Rasta (followers of Jesus by de teachments of a great christian leader Haile Selassie)but nah come wit dat bag a doctrine, since dem allready been dere an done it? I woman nah kansider I self Rasta, since Selassie was nah de reason me accept de Christ, an me finally fill I void, dat existed de whole time me a Rasta, but nah becus of Selassie, so me nah Rasta. Ones ask why I still carry dread an keep I name, an again me stress yah cyant tek weh peoples kulcha, an me kulcha is well preserved! Ones haf asked why me post to Rastafari bout I Saviour, an I haf explaind dat as well, me NEVA leave I people, ILoved Rastafari an ILoved Ilanz people!!!!! Unlike JAH me show partiality in dis aspeck!!Ites an Jah blessings an Love to de I
