Re: Chicago Tribune Article

Really Janice – I suggest you check out some of the comments towards mainstream Baha’is on the appalling Talk.Relgion.Bahai from the followers of Joel Marangella before you get too high and mighty.

Something, more than any other thing, that defines them on that talk group is their utter willingness to succumb to the moral and spiritual gutter philosophy of “my enemy’s enemy is my friend”. For example there have been some terrible things said on there about Baha’u’llah, Abdu’l Baha, and Shoghi Effendi by enemies of the Faith (including accusations of murder, drug-running etc). Not once in all my years of bewildered lurking on that group have I EVER seen an orthodox baha’i post to defend any of the central figures of the Faith EXCEPT when they consider that the point being raised impacts on Joel Marangella’s claim to be guardian. Not ONCE have I ever seen an Orthodox Baha’i take those enemies of the Faith to task.

However I see REGULARLY the orthodox baha’is jumping into bed with these self-declared enemies of the Faith to join in their attacks on the Universal House of Justice of the mainstream Bahai’s. “My enemy’s enemy is my friend.”

I appreciate your own personal efforts to appear kind and loving towards all but, really, your own fellow orthodox bahai’s hold no moral high ground when it comes to practicing what you are preaching.

Kind regards. Doris
