USAR President, C. Cannon – Bey, recently issued an Executive Order to the MSTA. The Executive Order is calling for the MSTA to unite under one “vine and fig tree”. I assume this is due to the split that has existed between the many Moorish Science Temples of America for several years.
Unbeknownst to many Moors, the MSTA is not one unified body. It is similar to the many McDonald’s franchises scattered all throughout the so-called United States. Though they carry the same name and serve the same food, the only thing that connects them is the name and the food (doctrine). Hell, sometimes the doctrines are different, even contrary to one another.
Another example of this is the existence of the many Christian denominations throughout the world. They all claim to be devout followers of Christ; yet their doctrinal differences cause them to branch off into sects such as Baptist/Southern Baptist, Seventh Day Adventists, Mormons, African Methodist Episcopal, Catholicism, etc.
Another issue that is said to exist between the several different MSTA bodies is that members of the different temples have alleged that some Moorish Science Temples have bad paperwork. This means the temples were not lawfully established with a de jure charter. I, of course, can’t leave out the F.B.I. files that evidence a tumult within the temple going back to the early-mid 1900s.
The existing conditions have led to several rifts within the MSTA. It has been alleged that there can be 2 MSTA buildings right around the corner from one another, yet, the congregations do not congregate. All over the internet you can find videos of members from different Moorish Science Temples of America, speaking ill of one another. It is unfortunate indeed.
Even with all those issues existing for the several MSTA bodies, President C. Cannon – Bey has seen fit to utilize his Presidential power to get the ball rolling on a national unity effort. I, just like many other Moors, am very well aware of what many Moors think of President Cannon – Bey’s demonstration with the United States of America Republic (USAR). My personal opinion is that the jury is still out on that.
In fact, President C. Cannon – Bey addresses those exact sentiments in the video below.
What is an Executive Order?
An executive order is defined as being a declaration by the president or a governor which has the force of law, usually based on existing statutory powers. They do not require any action by the Congress or state legislature to take effect, and the legislature cannot overturn them. – https://www.law.cornell.edu/wex/executive_order
Who or What is USAR?
USAR is short for ‘United States of America Republic’. USAR is a Moorish body politic, a corporate entity operating in governmental fashion, hence the title, President for C. Cannon – Bey. United States of America Republic is said to have been established in 2015. It has several governing bodies established in most of the 50 Provinces. Due to USAR being a corporation, many Moors think it is not a de jure government (Google ‘Clearfield Doctrine’ and ‘Hale v. Henkel’). This leaves the question, will President C. Cannon – Bey’s executive order have the force of law?
