He seems pretty cool. They have really nice temples, too. I've visited the one in Chicago.
(Didn't feel "God" there, but I only ever feel "God" when I'm outdoors.)
Baha'u'llah was a muslim, but his beliefs rendered him an apostate to both the Shia and Sunni sects, for his claim to being a divine messenger.
His message of unity of world's religions running along a common goal under our common Creator had been appealing to many. It is not my place to
denounce or pronounce his message, for I am only a simple insignificant and nobody fellow human, and each human has his/her own free will to choose,
so long as whatever was taught or followed would NEVER hurt or harm another innocent.
I am a follower of our Messiah, and strive hard to follow his teachings, and would never hurt or harm another fellow human, regardless of his faith,
for we are all one race - human, children of our common Creator. I will only defend my loved ones -family, relatives and friends, if they are attacked
by beasts or man turned beasts.
It would be the same with you on your basic world view, despite our differences. Our fellow human brothers and sisters of the muslim faith have yet to
get out of the clutches of repressive senile old foolish leaders who believe in form than substance to progress and evolve, similiar with most
mainstream religions anyway, drunk on power and priviledges religon gives but otten misused.
Back on topic - I can't believe a mere tomato had led to this discussion.........
