from publicbroadcasting:

"The Baha'i faith was founded by Shi'ite Muslim clergymen in Iran in the 19th century and more than 300,000 live in the Islamic state. Iran's Shi'ite religious establishment considers the faith a heretical offshoot of Islam."

The Koran says there is suopposed to be no compulsion in religion. Is there compulsion? Are muslims hypocrites? Bahais have no rights in Iran. They could be killed and there would be no arrests They are persona non grata.

Five more?

Iran is already holding eight for years.

Iranian Baha'is in Germany are very worried about them. They may be tortured and killed, they suspect.

Joe, your statement about the Baha'i Faith's origins - copied from Reuters - is inaccurate. An better one can be found on the official Baha'i Faith website www.bahai.org :

"The Bahá'í Faith is the youngest of the world's independent religions. Its founder, Bahá'u'lláh (1817-1892), is regarded by Bahá'ís as the most recent in the line of Messengers of God that stretches back beyond recorded time and that includes Abraham, Moses, Buddha, Krishna, Zoroaster, Christ and Muhammad.

The central theme of Bahá'u'lláh's message is that humanity is one single race and that the day has come for its unification in one global society."

Actually it was from PBS, the same people who produced a TV series on Islam and claimed it translated as "faith"!!!

"Baha’i (Persian,'of glory'), religious faith founded in the late 19th century as the fulfillment of the prophecy of Mirza Ali Muhammad of Shīrāz, known as the Bab (see Babism). The founder of the Baha’i faith was Mirza Husayn Ali of Nur, born in Persia and later known as Baha’u’llah (Arabic,'the Glory of God'). He became a follower of the Bab, and in 1850, upon the martyrdom of the Bab, became a prominent Babi leader ..."

Speaking of stones, how's your "holy" meteorite holding out inside of the kabbah?

Has anyone checked lately to make sure the stone's still in there?

Life is a changing for old Willberhum, Israels Internet soldier

My job has been so boring for so long, I quit and I’m moving on.
The only good thing about this job, besides the good pay, was, by its nature, I could spend about 50% on my time at work participating on this forum.
But then, because of the job, I needed something to stop total boredom from setting in.

I have taken almost no time off for the two years that I have been on this current contract.
I’m tired, worn out, bored to death, and ready to go home.

I also want to thanks the like of Zeal, Sent of Memories, Abu Najda, MSDefendIslam, Love, and others who stand as a reminder of just how evil Islam is and just how diligent we must be to stop an ideology of world domination and the destruction a human rights.

Several of these names are legitimate posters who simply refuse to put up w/your troll ways, but this time you've really outdone yourself, esp. after Top Mod 8 explained what spam was and wasn't: spam is forcing people to read the same message over different threads, so now I'm obliged to report YOU.

IMO, you are your own worst enemy.

Twenty five years of my life, gave up a child. My ex husband an elected member of bahai comunity in alto loma, ca stole my possision for 25 years, I went to hell and came back, what the member of this community did to me is un speakable. This man is elected member, emotionally and physically abused me for 25 yeaes, pushed me down stairs when I was pregnant, gossiped at work. All I can say I am glad I am away from this cult. Please please to all non bahai women be carefull they (bahai communiies) are very controllling and can be extremely dangerous............. I have responsibility to inform others the rest is up to you, don't throw away your dignity
