Your opinion and your belief are your's and I am not trying to take it away, but I was just trying to tell you, what is there in the Autobiography of His Majesty Volume one on pages 42-43. There are other writings of His Majesty where he also said that he thank God for doing this and doing that for him and his people, even at His coronation but I am not trying to convince you about these things,I am just sharing these historic information, but if you are not there yet I do humble -stand, because most Rastafari people upon this earth, will also resist what I am saying, although it is recorded in history. Some of them may even curse me behind my back, if they read these things which I am writing about His Majesty. But what I am concerned about, is that if any one think I am wrong in what I am saying here, then prove that I am wrong not with just your opinion, or your feelings, or your beliefs, but with facts or basic truth and rights.
Since I have never been to Ethiopia and I have never met His Majesty personally, I get my knowledge from the various books which were
written by His Majesty and others. I do not know where you get your knowledge from so I am not trying to take away your opinion.
Did you know that Bishops and Priest of the Ethiopian Orthodox Church, the church of His Majesty, used to be appointed in Alexandria Egypt for many years until His Majesty made a request that it be changed before Bishops and Priests were appointed in Ethiopia? Did you know that there are Russian, Greek, Syrian and various other Orthodox churches away from the Ethiopia Orthodox church? And did you know that the Ethiopia Orthodox church is a part of the world churches organization? Please let me know if you were aware of all of these things. And for your information, Ethiopia accepted Christianity about 1600 years ago and they remain a Christian country to the present time. Page 168, of the Autobiography of Haile Sellasse Volume one.
Take the best care of yourself and your people.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE
Baba Ras Marcus.
