I think he is saying that to not scare away the teens who associate reggae with religion so they can keep making him money.

They won't leave a legendary mark on Reggae music but at least they are having fun partying.

Giving thanks!

That's a ridiculous take. I think he's saying they not reggae music because...they're not reggae music.

I've never heard anyone, let alone a teen, say they don't listen to reggae music because they find it too religious.

I myself ,in my early youth had avoided certain types of music which did not match my own religious convictions and that included reggae.
I have since found a way to listen to reggae and still apply my own beliefs to the lyrics. Many Holy books are so similar.
The people who deliberately avoid reggae music I would assume Are religious and that’s the reason they might not want to listen.

Edit: also my takeaway from the Rebelution article are in his last question and answer:

DT: Reggae has enjoyed quite a bit of growth the last five years. Do you feel like Rebelution is at all responsible for any of that?

ER: I do. It’s tough because I don’t know how to categorize our music. I feel a little weird saying that we are reggae music because we mix in a lot of different genres. So I like to say that we’re “reggae-inspired.” If people want to say reggae, then great. I’m honored because I love reggae so much. I do think we are a big part of that (growth) though. Because when a lot of people hear “Rebelution,” they’re like, “Oh, I like reggae,” and then maybe they see the bands we take on tour and look up some of the people that have influenced us. I think Rebelution is a great gateway band to the genre of reggae music, even though I don’t consider our band to be strictly reggae.

To me it's all about spirituality, regardless of ones' religious (or not) beliefs...

Not all reggae is religious based.

To me, true reggae is rooted in spirituality...

True that.

To me, reggae without spirituality is hollow. Like most other genres of music.

bob andy wrote some of the greatest reality tunes in reggae; joe higgs is toppa top, just an all-time favorite of mine and he rarely mentions "jah".
it would be ridiculous to call the music of these artists "shallow".

sometimes i think the ones constantly chanting/singing about jah are probably in a good many instances the most hypocritical of reggae artists.

i'd rather listen to roots reality reggae than spirituality reggae any day.
but to each their own...

One can be spiritual without ever mentioning "God", "Jah", "Jesus", etc...

There's a difference between religion and spirituality...

one of my favorite works that i think of as very spiritual is yahadanai's "one atonement".

For me , Roots reggae is about history and ancient texts..that’s the part I enjoy the most, the knowledge and constant reminder of who I am. I also enjoy spiritual music.

Edit: I really enjoy classical Indian ragas played at the proper time of day. I have a lot of classical Indian vinyl
