I see. Your argument is "It is, therefore it is!" Interesting. Why haven't you even attemted to answer any of my questions?
After posting the last message it occured to me that interpreting the phrase "My House" as the "Presence of Baha'u'llah" would in fact be far more reasonable. Isn't it concievable that entering the Presence of Baha'u'llah could be described as entering "The City of God", "The Throne of God", or "The Abode of Peace"?
Anyway, whether we chose to interpret these Tablets literally or symbolically, I do think that using a tablet of Baha'u'llah to legitimize acts of terrorism is a little unwise. Furthermore, to think that we have the slightest idea what God is thinking is, I feel, even more cause for concern.
