  1. "Unlike the nations and peoples of the earth, be they of the East or of the West, democratic or authoritarian, communist or capitalist, whether belonging to the Old World or the New, who either ignore, trample upon, or extirpate, the racial, religious, or political minorities within the sphere of their jurisdiction, every organized community enlisted under the banner of Bahá'u'lláh should feel it to be its first and inescapable obligation to nurture, encourage, and safeguard every minority belonging to any faith, race, class, or nation within it."
    (The Universal House of Justice, 1995 Apr 27, Separation of Church and State)

  2. The path to guidance is one of love and compassion, not of force and coercion. This hath been God's method in the past, and shall continue to be in the future!
    (The Bab, Selections from the Writings of the Bab, p. 77)

    No one is to be slain for unbelief, for the slaying of a soul is outside the religion of God; ... and if anyone commands it, he is not and has not been of the Bayan, and no sin can be greater for him than this."
    (The Bab, the Bayan, quoted in The Dawn-Breakers, p. 330)

  3. As a human rights actvist and blogger for the Society of threatened people, I am thankful for your blog - as it is a valuable source of information.

    Sincerly yours,
