"REGGAE AND RELIGION" (WEBMASTER'S COLUMN)
WWW, October 17 2009 - A while ago, on the Dubroom Message Boards there was a short mention of the fact that within Reggae Culture, it is no offense to give thanks and praises to the Creator by His Name JAH.
People who are not personally affected by the worship of Jah, sometimes would call the faith a "religion" and then subsequently treat the worship and faith of others as if they were representants of some sort of "religion".
The postings on the Message Board made me write a rather short commentary entitled "Ras, Reggae Religion?", which you can find in this edition of Dubroom Online.
It is my hope that you might find it a little bit thought-provoking, as this really is a hot topic in certain circles.
One Love, Give Thanks,
Messian Dread (Dubroom Webmaster)
