On Why There Haven't Been Mass Conversions to the Baha'i Faith: Leighann Lord lays it on the bizarre idea of equality

In her copyrighted column, "the Urban Erma" Leighann Lord gives a nod to the Baha'i religion. Oh my, Lord! -gw

Although not a formal member, I subscribe more to the Baha'i religious philosophy which teaches equality of the sexes.

“The world of humanity has two wings—one is women and the other men. Not until both wings are equally developed can the bird fly. Should one wing remain weak, flight is impossible. Not until the world of women becomes equal to the world of men in the acquisition of virtues and perfections, can success and prosperity be attained as they ought to be."

Or as Rob Base so eloquently put it, “It takes two to make a thing go right.” This bizarre idea of equality vs subjugation is probably why there haven't been mass conversions to the Baha'i faith. Nice gardens though.
