Finally, a religion who doesn't speak about politics. THAT I can respect. Would you send this article to the Vatican,please?

Religion has very little to do with my vote. To each his own I say.
Bahá'í, founded on May 23, 1844, sounds decent and peaceful though.
From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bah%C3%A1%27%C3%... :
The Bahá'í Faith is a religion founded by Bahá'u'lláh in nineteenth-century Persia, emphasizing the spiritual unity of all humankind. There are an estimated five to six million Bahá'ís around the world in more than 200 countries and territories.
Bahá'í teachings emphasize the underlying unity of the major world religions. Religious history is seen to have unfolded through a series of divine messengers, each of whom established a religion that was suited to the needs of the time and the capacity of the people.

I agree. But who checks the messenger's credentials?I don't believe in ANY religion at all, and all who claim to be messengers of god are liars. What we need is a faith in ourselvs,not some imaginary friend. Elmo is not god.
