Yes please read the letter again. It says

"You are one of a million...."

Meaning there are plenty who hold these beleifs. You are finding things to condemn when there is nothing there. Be careful.

In defense of my brothers who read it wrong, however, this raises a different but similar question: If there are so many Rastas who do not believe Selassie is Jah, and Mohr admits that, why would he portray Selassie-divinity as the only Rasta view in writings like the FAQ? Why would he imply Rasta and Christian are always incompatible when, in some cases, they are not necessarily? That's the problem being raised.

Ofcourse.

Ask him, you got the connections, "moderators".

Ras Aaron had exactly the same reaction:

Quote:
InI have Raspect for that man to send me this e-mail, but if he believe that(That InI am 1 in a million) then InI need to do something because what InI believe is being distorted and falsified. Anyway InI urge all to spread the knowledge of our faith in anyway we can so that the truth be known. Much Love and Raspect!!


Ofcourse Jonagus, you are right.

He surely ment that we are minority and can therefore be disregarded.

This is his standard answer.

I do not need this one quote and I am not looking for something not there JP, I have heard at many instances that Christafari freely condemns Rastas for being idol worshippers without regarding any nuance in the movement, clearly going against His Majesty Haile Selassie when he gave Christians that KEY QUESTION when it comes to the relationship of Rastafari and Christianity: "Who Am I To Deny Their Faith"?

Oh no I am definitely not looking for something that is not there. I am not founding it on this one quote, JP.

yo messian dreads posts are comic genius , no offense to everyone he lashed out on, but seriously he is using your flawed attempts to defend mark, against you........ it is hysterical
Quote:
You are seriously stating Mark met millions of Rastas?

Ofcourse that is not the case.
