The law of primogeniture as applied to God`s will is not one of mere material and worldy things but of spirituality. You can be the ONLY son and inherit all the money, furniture, and worldy possession you like but if you aren’t up to the job spiritually you do NOT inherit the Guardianship.

That is pretty much what one of the Hands told Mason Remey when he tried to persuade them to elect a second Guardian (which he did before he made any claims for himself.) I think it was Mr. Samandari who said, “You can make a paper rose, but can you make it smell?”

If Remey had any claim to the Guardianship (which he did not) he legally signed that right away when he signed the following document in Nov. of 1957:

“The Custodians shall be deemed to succeed the Guardian of the Bahá’í
Faith, His Eminence the late Shoghi Effendi Rabbani, in Palestine or
Israel Branches of National Spiritual Assemblies of various countries,
which are registered in Israel, and the Custodians may nominate one or
more persons to act on their behalf in any such Israel Branches.”
Completed, sealed and signed on this 25th day of November, 1957.”

Keep in mind that Guardians are supposed to be infallible in matters of interpretation and protection of the Faith. So if he was the Guardian, signing this document could not be a mistake. In signing it he proved he was not the Guardian.Susan
