Re: Chicago Tribune Article

It’s very interesting that the Sans-Guardian Baha’is believe they are faithfully following the Covenant when the very important documents describing that Covenant in detail, namely the Will and Testament and the Dispensation by Shoghi Effendi have basically become obsolete in such a short span of time following the passing of those two. When sacred documents need to be altered in order to follow Baha’u’llah how does that glorify Baha’u’llah? The concept of a Guardian or interpreter that would have final say in moments like this when there are misunderstandings is a great way to settle disputes. Many think we do not need one. It seems obvious that we do. The Current Headless Universal House of Justice in Haifa has managed to create an atmosphere of fear as opposed to one of respect for our enemies. Many of these Baha’i organizations seem to think that declaring someone a covenant breaker is a free opportunity to hate. It is preferable to follow the example of Baha’u’llah, who asked others to treat the Covenant breakers with respect and kindness. Once they were named Covenant Breakers the believers were simply told to avoid them, not treat them poorly. While Baha’u’llah was in the wilderness for a long period of time, he asked his family to be nice to Mirza Yahya and they (inspite of Yahya’s rudeness)endured respectfully and continued to feed him and treat him kindly.
