[quote:Anonymous Coward 973172:MV8xMDczMDExXzE3MDU2NDA2X0U4OTczQ0E4] Rastafari is very clever. The Masons and churches hate it. The reason for this is because, Rastafari is a way to USE the vessel of religion as a vehicle for transporting the message of Self. The difference between the way masons use religion to hide the truth of Self and the way Rastafari do, is that Rastafari hides the truth in order to survive. And shares it with any and all who come seeking. [/quote]
It makes intuitive sense to me that the Masons could have had a hand in forming what is now Rasta culture. I'm not the most well-versed on Rastafarianism, but I do know they consider ganja, their all-important sacrament, to be the "wisdom weed" found growing on the grave of King Solomon. And I'm sure you know who built Solomon's temple.
Also, they refer to their Deity father figure as "Jah", and I've read that high level Masonic rituals refer to their god as "Jabulon"
Rastas also make frequent use of the Star of David symbol, which is essentially the same exact thing as the Freemason logo, minus the ubiquitous "G".
Then there's the constant references to Babylon, Zion, and the "Chosen People"...
I dunno. Just wanted to see if anyone had some relevant info on the subject.
And I don't mean to disrespect Uncle Bob. Marley was a genuine badass.
