You missed an important thing in the statement and by doing you you missed the point. He said the Rasta FRINGE. That means the edges. Not the Central teachings. Those that are claiming Rasta but are closer to something else. This a huge tread that I could give tons of links to show, like mixing in New Age teachings, Indian Gurus, Yoga, Kemetism etc. Rasta is being taken over by hippies...


Them who don't live it aren't Rastas. Rasta can't be blamed for fakes and dreadicrites, even among their number. That would be wrong and unfair, like blaming practicing Christians for nominal church-goers who never change.

Exactly! The guy who wrote the article was addressing the fringes with this statement, not mainstream Rasta. Therefore the offense is directed to those that are part of the fringe that call themselves Rasta who are in fact not. Like the guy who made the website that says that Cannibas is God's name. Obviously fringe, yet to the outsider looking in he is Rasta because he says he is Rasta. Those are the types being addressed.
