I am not an expert on free masonry. Therefore I am not at liberty to discuss openly on a forum about such things. However I do know of Rastology. However why do you need Rastology to tell you that Africa is for the Africans? Who else can claim to be native to the land but Africans?
And what part sounds like Christianity to you? The part where black children will no longer be told to shave their locks in exchange for school books? Or is it the part where a father does not have to worry about being fired from work because he is a Rastafarian? Or could it be a black woman no longer having to be ridiculed at work for covering her head, yet muslim women look like they are about to hijack an airplane, and everything is cool?
If you feel that Rastafari people are now protected under ...aka...organized religion, then I agree it does sound like other major PROTECTED religions. And if that is the case, then it is long over due.
Now keep in mind, if you disagree with this PARTICULAR Rastafarian church's methods, then perhaps you can find one that best suit your agenda. Or perhaps you are not looking for one at all.
But in any event, Rastafarian people deserve the same respect that Jews, Muslims, and Christians have in the work place, and at school.
