Dear Mr. Glaysher,

Thank you for your submission to soc.religion.bahai. I am returning it
to you unposted as your comment is not in keeping with the charter of srb.
Specifically, your comment is derogatory in tone and an invitation to
further inflamatory comments.

Thank you for your participation.
