Silly??? Maybe.

This is with no dis-respect to rasta or anyone.

Example: many who make their dreads at the salon, or listen to reggae and smoke herb . Yet when asked about JAH spirit and His will, they fail to give any reason for their beliefs other than the things listed above.

I see this where I live and it seems there are many misconceptions of rasta just as there is with many christians in "today's world". This should be addressed by the rasta believers. Many rasta show their "dislike" for certain Xians yet have no mention of those people who are without any overstanding of rasta and yet portray to the public that they are ras tafari followers.

Any comments?


Yeah, I can see your point. Why act the part if you don't believe the things that they stand for?

That would be kind of like me wearing a priest collar even though I don't agree with all of the Catholic teachings.

I can see your point here. I don't think you should act like something that has so much religious undertones. Again it would be like me wearing the clothes of an Arabic man, though I am not Muslim. I don't believe that is right.

Just for the record, there are lots of non-Muslims Arabs, including many Christians

Yeah, whoops! I messed that up. But you get the idea. I just meant me or you, deciding that it would be cool to wear something that is of religous significance.

Good catch!

I think it depends on the culture. In Canada, where I am from, people dress how they want.

If you are a Christian in an Arabic country, you dress like everyone else, you know?

There are no rules or anything to how you should dress as a Christian. I think Christians who dress like a rasta do it because they like the culture, but I think that sometimes they don't know the significance of what it means to be a rasta. So even though they may not mean disrespect, disrespect if felt.

Hopefully that made sense!!!
