What is the Bahá’í Faith?

The Bahá’í Faith, founded by Bahá'u'lláh, represents essentially the renewal of religion with teachings relevant to contemporary needs and the requirements of humanity’s collective future. It rests on a broad base of sacred scriptures that both nourish the soul and provide laws and principles of social interaction.

The Bahá'í Faith is the youngest of the world's independent religions. Its founder, Bahá'u'lláh (1817-1892), is regarded by Bahá'ís as the most recent in the line of Messengers of God that stretches back beyond recorded time and that includes Abraham, Moses, Buddha, Zoroaster, Christ and Muhammad.

The central theme of Bahá'u'lláh's message is that humanity is one single race and that the day has come for its unification in one global society. God, Bahá'u'lláh said, has set in motion historical forces that are breaking down traditional barriers of race, class, creed, and nation and that will, in time, give birth to a universal civilization. The principal challenge facing the peoples of the earth is to accept the fact of their oneness and to assist the processes of unification.

One of the purposes of the Bahá'í Faith is to help make this possible. A worldwide community of some five million Bahá'ís, representative of most of the nations, races and cultures on earth, is working to give Bahá'u'lláh's teachings practical effect. Their experience will be a source of encouragement to all who share their vision of humanity as one global family and the earth as one homeland.

Baha'u'llah was the founder of the Baha'i Faith in the 19th century in Persia. Keeping with the trend of making up philosophies to control people's lives, Baha'u'llah is portrayed as a perfect, divine being who is the only one to apparently understand God.

Suffering from Persian egotism and butt hurt about all of the Western Imperialism going on the in the area, he went about creating an ideology that would ensure Persian dominance over the land.

Now everyone that is a Baha'i talks about how Baha'u'llah was the greatest thing ever, and that anything about unity of the human race, being nice, etc is because he said something about it.

Basically he was a philosopher that wanted everyone to be like the Persians and not have any fun.
"Have you heard about Baha'u'llah, the manifestation of God?" asks the hippie.

"Please stop Baha'i Jacking every conversation I have with you." says Bob.

Baha'i Jacking occurs when engaged in normal conversation, somewhere the other person brings up the Baha'i Faith, Baha'u'llah, or something about world unity.

They will do this in everyday conversation with strangers in hopes of teaching them about their obscure, dying religion. Baha'is are taught to lay traps in conversations which give them an excuse to bring up what they really want to talk about. This may range from anything.

To protect yourself from Baha'i Jacking, just ignore them unless actually interested. If interested, make sure you actually research it.
Bob: Yesterday, I was just simply having a conversation with my neighbor and he mentioned the Baha'i Faith.

Sally: What happened?

Bob: I told him to stop Baha'i Jacking and that it was really proselytizing... something Baha'is aren't supposed to do. I was offended.

BNASSA stands for Baha'i Network on Aids, Sexuality, and Addiction.

It is a pretentious organization that seeks to spread its religious views to vulnerable members of society who supposedly need something to shame them for their life choices.

The site details how homosexuality is immoral, birth control and tying your tubes is against nature, and even flaunts the use of controversial methods of "fixing homosexuality".
"The stated purpose of BNASAA is to explore Bahá’í principles and concepts related to AIDS, human sexuality, addictions, abuse and other challenging personal issues, and to consider questions and concerns that arise in the application of these principles to Bahá’í community development."
