Thanks again everyone who has put forth an opinion, much appreciation.

As I review the posts I still do not find an authoritative Baha'i answer to what seems to me to be a simple question i.e.,

A friend reveals to you, a Baha'i, that he is a promiscuous, happy, gay person, with multiple partners, gives and gets anal and oral sex, takes photos of sex sessions which he (unwanted) shows you, describes his sexual acts in detail, introduces you to his paid and unpaid lovers, shows you his webcam which he uses for masturbation while camming with another male, boasts of his conquests, is not a Baha'i, and rejects all suggestions that he could be sinful or immoral. Begged to at least refrain from subjecting me to these graphic details, he does not or cannot refrain.

In this instance, what is the Baha'i answer? What would Abdul Baha say? What would you say? I have rejected him from my home. I have done the "wrong" thing? Have I done the right thing. Have I done a Baha'i thing? I still feel that I have not received a complete or clear and definitive answer. I also know the UHJ would hesitate to answer, at the least, or most.

Where do I turn for authoritative Baha'i guidance? My personal rights are unquestioned. My Baha'i rights and duties are still unclear.
