Dr. Tafari Argues: Catholic Priest Molesting Little Boy Has Religious Equivalence With Rastifarian Smoking Marijuana
Doctor Ikael Tafari is a bit confused about the differences between religious practices that are legal in our society, religious practices that are illegal in our society – and what is sexual perversion by an individual that is sanctioned neither by religion nor society.
As near as I can figure from Dr. Tafari’s latest rambling missive in The Nation News, the dear doctor believes…
a/ If you are of African descent, you should not be Christian. Instead you should be a believer in one of the traditional African religions by virtue of your race. (While he doesn’t come right out and say this here, the theme runs through his entire works and is certainly lurking about this piece.)
c/ When Catholic priests sexually molest little boys, this is a widespread part of the Catholic religion that should be considered equivalent to the central religious beliefs of a Rastafarian smoking of marijuana or the Orisha practice of sacrificing live animals.
From Tafari’s latest vomitus in The Nation News (link here)…
“Did the illegal sacrament at the heart of the Rastafari faith disqualify it? Is it because the Orisha practise blood sacrifice that they were left out? But there is a widespread sexual practice of interfering with young boys among Roman Catholic priests – and they were at the head of the service…”
Our Catholic friends might want to read Tafari’s whole work and then let him know that they don’t consider the sexual molestation of children to be central to their religious beliefs.
I can’t believe that the Government Of Barbados still pays this Tafari guy and provides him with the credibility of an official position and title.
