Re: Chicago Tribune Article

Again, it wasn’t the Orthodox Baha’is that spurned this whole thing on, but the BUPC. The writer of this aritcle doesn’t mention the BUPC because the Law Firm representing the BUPC pro bono declined to comment at this time.

The analogy of the vatican is funny. But, is the Catholic Church the buildings and the grounds or is it the institution of the Pope and the Catholic Heirarchy? The test for the believers 50 years ago was that the Baha’i Faith cannot exist without a Guardian. The Test that Mason gave was you have to know who is the right candidate for the job. Yes, he appointed several to be his successor, but he only had one son and according to the laws of primogeniture, the successorship goes to the son, the Aghsan, as stated in the Will, not anybody who just decides they are the one. Doesn’t work. The lineage of David through Baha’u’llah is preserved as it has been through the last three thousand years, with not any hiccups. Well….maybe a hiccup or two, but the line is unbroken and adheres to every dot and tittle of the Will & Testament of Abdu’l-Baha.

The truth is easily arrived at if you are willing to accept the truth. The truth is easy to discern, that is, as Jesus says, if you have the eyes to see and the ears to hear and the heart to understand and accept what your intellect is telling you. The will states that the Guardian has to be an Aghsan – a male Heir of Baha’u’llah. Mason was the only Aghsan left that hadn’t broken the Covenant. He was Aghsan as he was adopted by Abdu’l-Baha, but an adopted son has all the rights and priveledges of a natural son, including the laws on inheritence. Joel Marnegella, although a very distinguished and spiritual man, is not an Aghsan. Donald Harvey is not an Aghsan. Only Mason Remey was proclaimed to the whole Baha’i World that he was Abdu’l-Baha’s “Aghsan”. Shoghi Effendi acknowledged this by according to Mason Abdu’l-Baha’s inheitence to him as “Abdu’l-Baha’s ‘Dear Son'”. Shoghi put Mason at the head of that institution of the IBC for the very fact that there were no other Aghsan to fulfill that position. The IBC was the UHJ just in its infant form that was to evolve through a four stage process, the next stage from the IBC being the Baha’i World Court that was the goal for 1963, not that it would become the UHJ in 1963, but that it would become the World Religious Court for the Baha’is in Israel by 1963. Then in 1959 the “Hands” disbanded the IBC Shoghi Effendi set up (going against Shoghi Effendi) and set up another and completely bypassed the World Court stage saying In ‘Baha’i World Vol. XIII, that “due to the secularization of religious courts in this part of the world, the Baha’i world court may not be realized.” Which is total bunk as the Druze set up their religious court in Israel in 1963. The reason the “Hands” didn’t want the Baha’i Court set up in Israel is that it would have had Mason at its head and this would have only cemented his position as Guardian with the Israeli Government, so they did away with it, and this is why Mason had to come out with a proclamation.

For those who have the eyes to see and the ears to hear,
