I don't consider TTOI Rastafari, as they don't acknowledge Selassie I as the Almighty. Why call oneself Rastafari if ones don't believe the core principal.
Yacob, the cigarette smoking exiled baldhead will never be a SPIRITUAL sucessor to Selassie I. With the current situation, I doubt he will physically be the successor either.
Gad's statements, like "he doesn't need to read the bible anymore" and saying he was resurrected and ting seem more like a cult leader than a Rastafari.
The post "check out the real situation" about the activities of the TTOI in Ithiopia, if true, is atrocious, and an abomination uto the Lord Jah Rastafari.
Maybe I-man shouldn't have called the man folly, I&I apologize if I upset any bredren or sistren. I&I aren't trying to fight down a "house". I-man don't even see "house"- I see Rastafari and TTOI. It's like I-man saying "I don't believe in Jah, I man only sight up Y'shua, I man eat dead ass, swine, smoke cigarette, drink rum, and follow this next man Gad" but CALL ME A RASTAFARI. Nah man it nah work like that.
If ones want to explain this to me, I&I are all ears...
