I dont condone any name calling when ones are reasoning. I will not say that I have not been guilty of it before. Even still, I think respect in reasoning will get more accomplished than disrespect.
I just have one question for the I blessedflames.
You made this statement refering to I, Eja, Bantu, et al:
"....you are acting more & more like the europeans as the days pass. "
You accuse Eja of namecalling, but how is the statement you made any different from him calling you an uncle tom?
Disrespect is disrespect....period.
You say that everyone is trying to enforce their beliefs on you when it was u who initially started much of this by calling people out for not conforming to YOUR overstanding of Rastafari. (for example, the reasonings on Kemet and the Pert em heru)
You have to be willing to examine your position while reasoning if someone makes u upset.
Because InI know that the truth is an offense.
