Thoughts about Some World News

Today, President Obama has spoken to the people and leaders of Iran. He has asked that no one use force to impose a leader on the Iranian people. He has warned against use of violence, or the imprisonment of those who do not agree with the Iran's rulers.

I feel that the warning against the imprisonment of those in opposition groups invites a reminder about the imprisoned Baha'is in Iran. Those Baha'is did nothing more than follow the teachings of Abdu'l-Baha and his father, Baha'u'llah. Those teachings run counter to the teachings of Islam. That is why the Iranian authorities have imprisoned an entire group of Baha'is.
