Hi Loren, Yes, I'm a Baha'i and, yes, I was questioning whether your statement was factually correct. The only difficulty I have with claims that the Baha'i faith champions women's rights is that "women's rights" is a recent Western concept and, almost inevitably, is tied up with equality ...

Hi Loren, I think the comparison is legitimate, based on your original statement: You may be interested to know, if you didn't already, that Baha'i women were voting and serving on assemblies long before women's suffrage had come even to the most liberal countries of the west. However, rather than a...

Women's suffrage

You may be interested to know, if you didn't already, that Baha'i women were voting and serving on assemblies long before women's suffrage had come even to the most liberal countries of the west. (Loren) I believe you're overstating the case. Women's suffrage came to the more liberal countries of t...

"...leaving them free to pursue their own methods...&am

Hi Bruce, There is no set-in-stone "Baha'i [electoral] administrative procedure" to violate: Spirit and Method of Baha'i Elections In connection with the best and most practical methods of procedure to be adopted for the election of Baha'i Spiritual Assemblies, I feel that in view of the f...

A more modest proposal

Hi Jim, I wonder whether enough time has passed to allow the ideas dreamed up on Talisman to percolate through to the community and to become mainstream. My rough guess is that the process takes 20 years or so. Talisman began in late 1994, so I have a feeling it may be premature to study the full fo...

That's a loaded question, so there's no point in dignifying it with an answer.

Re: "infallability" designed to prevent schism, or

...an article that is, at least according to the Universal House of Justice, an attack on Baha'i institutions so severe that it resulted in the author having her membership in the Baha'i community removed. Hi Eric, Nonsense. The article was written years after the author had her membership removed....

Pierced off

Hi Eric, I understood the listowner (Jonah) to say that the topic of possible corruption within the House or AO was prohibited unless we confined ourselves to what the Baha'i writings say about it. I don't believe you've put forward anything from the writings. Your post seems to be either off-topic ...

In every age...

Having said that, I'll happily allow discussion of what the <i>Writings do say</i> about the possible corruption or lack thereof of the current or future UHJ or AO. It's not an easy black-and-white answer, because there are statements from the Writings which could be interpreted as saying that the ...

Hi Dean, I accept your conditions. It suits me just fine to have your responses cease. However, I think I should acknowledge how you are feeling.

Hi Dean, Please do provide evidence for your assertions that I am a fraud and a liar; otherwise, your statements are nothing more than ad hominem. You will find that Kalimat Press has consistently acted in obedience to its national spiritual assembly and, in the face of the arbitrary action taken ag...

I can confirm that the publisher does state that, yes, everything Kalimat published passed Review. Does that include the CHURCH AND STATE: A Postmodern Political Theology by Sen McGlinn? :? Kalimat Press didn't publish "Church and State". It was published by the author. Kalimat Press sells or distr...
