Aaron, this is a big task you propose, and will probably take a lot of time. There will probably be many missteps and miscommunications. But it may yet be worthwhile. Where and how should it begin? Are there specific topics that should be addressed? How many and in what order? This could be a great learning experience, but the scale of it may be daunting for most.

This is a misrepresentation of my point. My point was that neither Rastas nor Christians are fully represented in the FAQ. The FAQ doesn't present my Christian beliefs any better than your Rasta ones. We are both getting "shafted" by the FAQ.

Sorry for the misunderstanding!!

Of course it is a big task, but this is what everyone involved in the Rastafari/Xianity discussion is always saying is needed. Jetze, write a new FAQ; Aaron, write something that better reflects RasTafari; Xians say that they don't believe the fact is accurate. I say that we attempt it. It is better than what has been occuring in the past. Even now, with this offer on the table, there are still those who prefer to attack what they see as RasTafari descrepancies rather than work towards a serious understanding.

For all of the talk on the board, I am surprised to see that no one else has signed on to the project. Some of the most active posters in this forum have remained silent. Anyway, lets's give everyone a few days to see if they're interested and then let's start.

I agree that this a huge task, And I think that is part of why I kept asking for Jetze to write something better. It is very easy to critque, with out offering a better solution. When this is accomplished it will still be a reflection of our opinions, and it may never change the views of the owner of this site. But for the sake of clarity let us start a new thread...

It is my opinion that this is not Jetze's problem. If all of us agree that the prevailing understanding of what RasTafari is considered to be is wrong, it is our responsibility to change it.

Mr. Mohr and others in LOZ have given little to no imput in this forum. The more that I study this subject, the more I see that there will probably be no response forthcoming from him. This is not a personal attack on him, this is a fact that I am stating. Mr. Mohr and company do not engage in any public RasTafari reasoning that I am aware of. Neither will they release the "Christ and Tafari" and herb booklet that has been published.

The burden of understanding, on this forum, is always placed upon the minority opinion. This is not fair. Let's knock out a definition as a group. That would be reasoning as opposed to this rhetorical posting nonsense that is rampant on this site. With or without Mr. Mohr's approval, I say we come to our understanding of each other. To look for leadership or approval from LOZ is one of the reasons why this forum is ineffective and perpetuates ignorance.

I agree with Aaron. He said what had to be said.

And Blaminack I gave many many times answers to your quest for a definition. Dear brother, I have a website in which I have written loads of things! I write here too. Do you really need a definition from me? After all, the LOZFAQ is about all that we have. You have lots and lots more from me. With your inteligence, I think you can pretty much make your own conlcusion as to what my definition of Rastafari is.

But there is not so much agreement with my definition. I get letters from people who are inpired by the lozfaq and they label me false teacher with the loz faq as their resource material which they quote to me to show me that I am a false teacher. Literally, okay?

If that is what Christafari intends to work in the minds of their christafarians with their FAQ then they're doing a good job and have no need for a change. In any other case, they do have a responsibility to change the FAQ.

But, as allready established, this is not going to happen. Because it should have happenned long time ago. There is no sign whatsover that loz is at all interested in this matter. They don't seem to care.

I mean, this is really becoming a big joke. Here you have the lozfaq basically telling everyone in Rastafari that they can not be a Christian because they are in Rastafari, and there you have the moderator calling himself "Ras" and promoting Ital Things, telling us that all Rastas "should" eat this or that. How serious should we take LOZ?

Do You Care About These Things?

Messian Dread makes a good point. Why is a moderator called Ras B? I've seen pictures of him, also. He has dreadlocks and calls himself Ras B. In my mind that is a RasTafari. I don't understand how he could be allowed to operate with such contradictions within the Gathering. It seems to contradict the LOZ RasTa ideology.

However, that is not the topic of the thread. Some of us have agreed to work at coming to a better understanding of what RasTafari is. Those who have agreed to do so are setting out to do it.

From my reading and research, I believe that Ras B is in this picture.
