The logic the House used for taking for taking a year to answer my appeal
was that they felt I would have come to my senses in all that time. I did.
In my profound disillusionment (ridding myself of illusions) at their
insensitivity--to a problem they helped create-- I began the long process of
leaving the Faith.
Of course, none of this is really important to anyone unless it is your
faith being crushed.
I really believe, Susan, that if you had been put into my set of
circumstances and had became too disgusted to continue making appeals--you
would have lost your faith too.
The fact is Bahais leave the Faith quietly every year. They're typically
called "inactive."
For all you Bahais out there with your heads blistfully in the sand--when
not crying "foul" to what I'm saying: Do your homework and quit chiming in
with the mob mentality.
