Re: Chicago Tribune Article

Dear Doris, Those are good points, but again, to add any other criteria other than that he must be a son and be appointed is going outside the framework of the Will & Testament. Pepe was very much in support of the BUPC and acknowledged this in numerous letters some of which both my wife and I received. Here is an excerpt from one:

“Mason was confident that in time the masses of Believers would come to the conclusion that they needed and wanted a Guardian. Had they done so during his lifetime, I should not have objected to being his successor. Mason would have delighted in (the) conclusion regarding the Afnan and Aghsan branches and if it is true that Mason was, in fact, the adopted Aghsan son of ‘Abdu’l-Baha, and if that fact were to be generally accepted, then I should not be able to refuse being his only possible successor…. The fact will always remain that if the Baha’i Faith must have a Guardian to progress, then only Mason Remey could have fulfilled that role, and Mason Remey intended me as his successor…” (Pepe, 25 July 1991, Personal names omitted for privacy)

Sorry for the contradiction to your statements, but these are letters that we have and we had correspondence with him on and many more until his passing in 1994. I’m sorry you have been misinformed. You can read more of these as well as excerpts from Mason’s diaries here
