Yes ... it's a well-known humor website in the States. Used to be a newspaper, for many decades, till they stopped printing recently. But their articles are often misinterpreted as real by the foreign press.

The article is of interest here because The Onion must think enough people know about the Baha'i Faith for the joke to make any sense. If the Faith was still in obscurity, it wouldn't be the subject of jokes. :-)
