The Baha'i Faith & Religious Freedom of Conscience


It should be noted that Ron House has been posting for a number of years
in many Bahais forums, including on soc.religion.bahai, and is known to be a Bahai
and not what Bahais call a covenant breaker. The issue of CB material was
specifically addressed in the early draft of the RFD by quoting the UHJ's support
of civil rights for covenant breakers and unmoderated forums. Mr. Hyman's
message here appears to me to be an attempt to cloud the waters after apparent
agreement regarding the "neutral" RFD.
