"It is true that should a believer read the writings of Covenant-breakers or enemies of the Cause and permit these words to instill doubts about the truth of Bahá'u'lláh's Cause such a believer would then be considered as having been infected by the poison of Covenant-breaking. However, since you returned the book to your local library upon being informed of the true nature of its contents and told your District Teaching Committee and your National Spiritual Assembly about the matter, it is clear that you took the correct steps and should therefore, with complete confidence, turn to Bahá'u'lláh for protection and guidance, fully assured that His promise to assist those who turn to Him will be fulfilled."
(From a letter dated 29 March 1977 to an individual believer)
“The animal cannot become aware of the fact that the earth is revolving and the sun stationary. Only processes of reasoning can come to this conclusion. The outward eye sees the sun as revolving. It mistakes the stars and the planets as moving about the earth.

Dale, in America when a group of prominent people in, let's say, Alabama swindle the state and people of millions under a previous state administration and get prosecuted and go to jail under the subsequent one, you call it a scandal and justice. You never characterize the crooks as being persecuted or question the narratives around it. But when it comes to countries like Iran and the same situation, even liberals like you buy into the "persecution" myth, which is why I am generally critical of your stance on Iran, Islam etc as being biased and largely uninformed.
