"will not type a long winded post. I think ones look at Ras Tafari as a religion as if there is ONE set of doctrine, beliefs, and rituals that one has to partake in order to dare I say, be initiated into Rastafari. That is the way some are acting as if you have to do this or that. I am glad I do not subscribe to that brand of Rastafari. I have a free mind and free thought and I will use it. This is for my life, not others. "
no , from what i grasp nobody is sayin there is only ONE set of doctrines and rituals to become or to be rastafarian nor that rastafari is a religion .
you can look at this trought Priest A.A. and some nyahbinghy . there is no quarrel on ONE set of rules .
all rastas houses have at them foundation RasTafari the man Haile Selassie I .
for some HIM Jah , for others part of the Trinity , for some Christ in His kingly carachters , for some just the ALLMighty without apology . Ivine for sure .
all a those stand firm on their foundations .
the discussion raise because some people seh that HIM is just a man , who make errors and tings , while tellin us they are rastafari or that all rastafari should think like this .
all is being sayin is that if them no confortable with the King , than they can leave RasTafari alone , that's all , and i don't and connot see anything wrong with this , do you ?
