Michael Clarke's Analysis
Selassie's position
In a 1967 recorded interview with the CBC, Haile Selassie
appeared to deny his alleged divinity. In the interview Bill
McNeil says: "there are millions of Christians throughout the
world, your Imperial Majesty, who regard you as the
reincarnation of Jesus Christ." Selassie replied in his native

I have heard of that idea. I also met certain Rastafarians. I told
them clearly that I am a man, that I am mortal, and that I will be
replaced by the oncoming generation, and that they should never
make a mistake in assuming or pretending that a human being is
emanated from a deity.[191]

For many Rastafari the CBC interview is not interpreted as a
denial of his divinity, and according to Robert Earl Hood, Haile
Selassie neither denied nor affirmed his divinity either
way.[192] In Reggae Routes: The Story of Jamaican Music, Kevin
Chang and Wayne Chen note:

It's often said, though no definite date is ever cited, that Haile
Selassie himself denied his divinity. Former senator and Gleaner
editor, Hector Wynter, tells of asking him, during his visit to
Jamaica in 1966, when he was going to tell Rastafari he was not
God. "Who am I to disturb their belief?" replied the

After his return to Ethiopia, he dispatched Archbishop Abuna
Yesehaq Mandefro to the Caribbean to help draw Rastafari and
other West Indians to the Ethiopian church and, according to
some sources, denied his divinity.[193][194][195][196]

My analysis is referring to the italicized text to the left:

In my analysis, the statement made by Haile Selassie I is not a
contradiction to Rastafarian belief.

Let's break down Haile Selassie I's statement:

First, Rastafarians agree that His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie
I was a mortal man prior to November 2, 1930; at which time,
his anointment during His coronation service, transfigurated
HIM from a mortal man to an immortal man that will be renewed
from generation to generation.  For example, I am a
renewal/replacement of my father and my sons are a renewal of
me and so on to time indefinite.

Second, Jesus the Christ is a great prophet with great
compassion for African people from which he originated.

A deity is defined as follows:

Deity - Wikipedia
A deity (/ ˈ d iː ɪ t i / (listen), / ˈ d eɪ -/ (listen)) is a supernatural
being considered divine or sacred. The Oxford Dictionary of
English defines deity as "a god or goddess (in a polytheistic

Rastafarians believe that Haile Selassie I is a mortal man that
transfigurated / ascended to the GodHead on earth.  It was not
that he came about from a supernatural being.

The Memory and Mercy of H.I.M. Emperor Haile Selassie I

Once the Emperor was distributing gifts to men who served the Ethiopian cause in World War II. After he
had finished, one man approached him and complained that he had been overlooked.
"You lie," Haile Selassie I replied, calling the petitioner by name and citing the exact place, day and hour that he had
been rewarded for obtaining a string of mules for the army.
The man flushed and trembled, for he had never suspected that the Emperor would remember, since scores of others
had been honored at the same time. He started to inch away, but the Emperor summoned him back and tossed him a
bundle of banknotes anyway. ( God is omniscient /Igizi’abiḥeri huluni awak’i newi )

Haile Selassie I speaks to be the Returned Christ


The Name of His Majesty Qedamawi Hayle Selassie, Q H S (ቀ ኃ ሥ) is also officially translated by the
King as I H S (H S I, Qedamawi is the First "I"), like the western (Greek) mystic Name of Jesus and in
the same form of the traditional monogram of Christ.

It was also engraved in the center of the Crosses, on the place of the Crucified One, and within
several Ethiopian Churches. The Selassie Church, the most important cathedral of Ethiopian
history, built by the King Himself, is abundantly decorated with Such Holy Name. In particular, as
you can see in these pictures, the Name of Janhoy is engraved on the altar until now, with the
shape of the Ark of the Covenant, among two angels in prayer. That is the Throne of God, with
Michael and Gabriel in humble worshiping.

The message is clear, bow down. The King knows Who He Is, and the whole Ethiopia recognizes
this by fact of adoration. See dem all kissing and praying the HOLA NAME, even now.
