Haile I Selassie I Ras Tafari!
I submit to the will of His Imperial Majesty and I live according to the way and example which he set. I educate myself as His Majesty and Marcus Garvey taught I and I to do. I read His Majesty's words, and read of His works, and read of His history, and read of Ethiopias history.
What I read I uphold and apply to my day to day life. His Majesty taught I and I that the bible is man's refuge and that He glories in it. He also kissed the cross and exhalted the name of The Lord Jes-us Christ. Yet I could get chanted down by RasTa men for wearing a cross and for reading the bible or for chanting the words of Jes-us Christ?
Now I can overstand(I do not feel) through education why some African bredrin would chant I down because of the worst crime against Imanity and the way that the cross was misused for murder, rape, and invasion. But is not that exactly what it was..MISused?
Now I seek education humbly, and from what I read His Majesty, Emmanuel, and Marcus all tell I and I of Jes-us. I know His Majesty and Emmanuel glory the bible, just as I know Bobo Shanty glory in it.
I see photos of His Majesty kissing the cross and the bible, and Her Imperial Majesty wearing the cross.
I come here to ask humbly, is not bunnin the bible, Jes-us, or the cross, going against the teachings of Haile Selassie I?
Those who feel it know, so I know it is different for I, as I do not feel it, as I am white. I overstand that for an African the cross and the bible can look like a symbol of murder and invasion, because the Europeans misused it and took what they wanted from them to enforce their weak hearted concepts like white supremacy. And just so I now see ones chanting down Jes-us as a myth. However is the words of the living God Haile Selassie I not above what the cross, the bible, or Jes-us may appear to be in the eyes of those who surffered under the false representation and misuse of these things?
I sight that it all goes back to the same Babylon, taking what belongs to the righteous and twisting and distorting it and using it for their own wickedness...and just so now one of the effects is that some now sight these thigns as wicked, instead of sighting the way they were used as what is wicked.
I hope the I them will reason with me on this, and that the I them will find the reasoning acceptable in the I sight, and above all I hope this reasoning remain acceptable in the sight of Negus I Selassie I Almighty God Jah Ras Tafari.
Selassie I live!
