Greetings, I'd like your opinnions on this:

I know it is about this new hot sensation called P.O.D. and I do not know anything about them neither do I feel like I should have an opinnion aout them per se, but it is about the depiction of Rastafari on this page where I would like to ask your opinnions on.

Lot of Good points in that, but it was still very one sided.

Hey that's the book I read..."The Rastafarians"

I said no because that is the book I read about rastafarianism when I was first learning...And I see nothing in this article that is anti-rasta...Everything the article said was in line with the book.

Likewise I make no defense or attack on POD.

But the author of this critique is coming from a limited perspective on rasta, as shown by the single source of Barrett's book. Nothing wrong with Barrett's book as long as it is clear that his perspective in it is one which is now 25 years old. It would not encompass every expression of rasta even at that time, though it would be more representative of the runnings then (though the six points listed would not be universally adhered to).

It is certainly not representative now. The author has done the (sadly) typical supeficial research without really gaining a true overstanding of the diversity within the current movement. So the shift in 12 Tribes is not accounted for, as the obvious example.

The general tone of the article is typical of the christian "anti-rock" brigade - slightly hysterical and based on shallow research - although that is not to say that some valid points are not made within it as well.

i read that article a few months ago and I was quite disappointed. Like Pete said it was shallow showing no real understanding of the topic other than what some one else thought. I get disgusted with these types of "Religious" hating. Yes there were some good points raised, and the is concerned about Holiness, but they also forget about Love and Mercy...

New?
...they've been around since 92.

Personaly, I think that is one of the worst anti-christian-rock articles ever made.
If you merely do a bit of re-search you'd see that the stuff in those articles an quotes are twisted.
Like I've said, If your going to call Payable on Death a rasta band.. you might as well call Christafari one to.

But anyway, in my opinion, it gives a realy crap overveiw of what Rastafari is now.

I respect you trying to reach out to him an show him what he's got twisted, but more than likely he won't even respond.
There have been tons of people that have tried to get a straight veiw..but he doesn't listen.
anyhow..Goodluck.

Shalom.
