I am not down on you as a person - just the way you often reason here.

My frustration, and even exasperation at times, is not from "day one" but has come from months and months of myself and others trying to reason with you.

I just wish you could sometimes take on board even the most basic points we talk about. Like after all this time you still talk as if there is only one "real" version of rasta - your version (or is it Barrett's?).

Why is it so hard for you to understand this basic point: that there are many different formulations of rasta identity, philosophy and theology? All adherents identify themesleves as rasta, but their beliefs and practices are not the same in content. Can you really not see this? Why can you not accept the evidence so many people have laid before you on so many occasions?

Truly, I am perplexed and bewildered - you seem able to ignore all evidence and everything which anyone says that is contrary to what you have already decided is true.

Why are you so concerned with rasta?

I am concerned that there should be a truthful, rather than dishonest and ignorant, representation of a group of people and their beliefs. How can we deal truthfully and honestly with a culture if we don't engage with it as it really is?

We have to really understand rasta TODAY, not how it was when Barrett was writing 25 years ago. Many things have changed since then, although of course some still fit his model.

It is also respectful to listen and gain insight into the beliefs of contemporary rastas who take the time and trouble to reason on a board like this one. I am grateful to Ras B and others for this.

I hope this firey intermezzo shows once again that this person calling himself after burning crosses is an AGENT PROVOCATEUR meaning he is not interested in reasoning, just to mash down every positive and constructive reasoning.

I ignore him because there's a difference in debating with fire and not debating let go reasoning.

MESSIAN DREAD-You may as well stop with your anti christian propaganda....My name is not named after burning crosses...I have told you this once before....It seems as if you are the rascist one here!...The name Cross Fiyah comes from a "cross fire" which I use every day...I make neon signs...I use a ribbon burner and a cross fire....Also it has to with the power of the cross and Christ who IS a consuming fire!...So if it REALLY bothers you that much...Then perhaps YOU are the rascist one...Trying to call me a rascist to cover up your own rascism!

I have no idea what you mean by an agent provocateur...I really don't....So how can I be one?....Noone knows what in the crap you are talking about!

He says I try to bring people away from any positive reasonings...UH...Don't I tell people to trust in Jesus?...Yes I do.

What exactly do you call positive?....Decieveing yourself?....I'm not going to sing anyone to sleep!....People need to wake up!...Including you!!

Your choosing to ignore me is showing your TRUE colors....And NO that is NOT a christian attitude...Have I done something to you?...If so tell me....You choosing to ignore me is just like treating me like a dead man......You choose to treat me for dead in your mind and that is just like committing murder....Not just me..anyone you choose to ignore!......Jesus said to go out and TELL...Not ignore!

PEOPLE!

Do not listen to this guy who calls himself Messian Dread when he accuses me of being...Whatever!??!

I don't even know this guy...But apparently he is an expert on me.......??GO FIGURE??

If you got something to say to me MESSIAN DREAD then say it!

And if you don't.....Then keep your phony expert analysis to yourself!

I think it is time to drop this incendiary communication. With respect to all where it is due, I am out of here.

He's right on target with his descriptions of bands like "Stryper" (very very interesting to read)


what is that link, i looked for it.
and didn't find it.
i found a bunch of legalistic dung that grated my spirit.

i would be interested to see what you agreed with and found interesting though.
