[quote:Anonymous Coward 897127:MV8xMDczMDExXzE3MDU2NTMyX0M1MTVDMTQ1] Masons and Rastafarianism? I don't think so. Rasta don't deal with isms or skisms. No hierarchies there. More an individual philosophy and a way of living, more than an organised "religion". Lately though there is some radicals within the branch of the boboshanti's. They are a group of rasta with coloured turbans, and lots of angry men with a bit of a suprmacist patriarchal mentality. Still complaing about this and that and its all whitemans fault and such. They even have heavy criticsm about bob marley about him white dad and love of women and smoke too much. Go figure. A minority still, that bobo's. [/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.
