Ras Makonnen Was DefenderOf The Orthodox Faith.
Tafari's father Ras Makonnen, was a serious defender of the Christian faith and a member of the Ethiopian Orthodox religion, therefore, after Tafari was born, he was taken to the Orthodox faith to be baptised and was given the name Haile Sellasse as his baptised name, because Haile Sellasse maens Power of the Trinity, but he naver used that name Haile Sellasse, until the time of His Coronation which was 2nd of November 1930. It is to be realized, that the name Haile Sellasse is a very common or popular name in Ethiopia, and that there are many people who have that name including women. It is more like how many parents would give their children names out of the bible like Moses, Job, Ezekiel, Jerimiah, Merriam, Mary, Solomon, David and so many other names which were taken from the bible. His Majesty in His writings and teachings tell the world that he is a defender of the christian faith, but there are some Rastafari people, who change his words around to suit what they would like the world to imagine. His Majesty was really an African Liberator who stood up for the rights of African people everywhere, and did work seriously with various African leaders, to help with the liberation of the African continent and it's people, and that is what true Rastafari must be about and be doing.
Take the best care of yourself and your people.
Again I send many oceans of blessingsc and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE.
Baba Ras Marcus.
