Dear Teri,
If you would take the time to read Fred's entire message including the last
line which says: "The Baha'i faith is a beautiful dream on paper..."
you would see that he ended his statement with (...) which indicates to me
and uncompleted thought. This uncompleted thought has relevance to the
subject under discussion ie. leaving the Baha'i faith. Fred's further
explaining would (I feel) indeed further the discussion.
