This is the first I post here. Now, I don't post this in order to put anybody down at all for sure; to me the whole thing is quite clear though. Read this Hailé Selassié I quote and let me know what you actually think:
"-Canada, 1967, aboard the Royal train (the first personal radio interview that Haile
Selassie ever granted).
Question by Bill McNeil: "There are millions of Christians throughout the world, your Imperial Majesty, who regard you as the reincarnation of Jesus Christ.
SELASSIE's answer: "I had heard of that idea. I also met certain RASTAFARIANS. I told them CLEARLY that 'I am a MAN', that 'I am MORTAL', and that 'I would be replaced by the oncoming generation, and that they should never make a MISTAKE in ASSUMING or PRETENDING that the HUMAN BEING is emanated from a deity'."
P.S.: I read a post below; what's this thing about "White" Rastas? I've never heard or known of any religion on this earth (Christianity, Islam, Hebraism, Buddhism etc.), except the NOI to a certain extent, that is suspicious or even against a group of people because of their skin-colour for real. What kind of religion would this be?
