I have published a BOOK

For over a decade, I have used this WordPress blog as a weapon against all kinds of irrationality, bigotry, ignorance, and hypocrisy. Recently, I decided to take many of my blog entries relating to Unitarian Universalism and/or the Baha’i Faith and assemble them into the form of a book for people to read.
Introducing:

The Baha’i Faith and Unitarian Universalism: A Personal Testimony and Analysis

8747fe7e-cb0c-4559-8f91-1a02599247e3_temp

It can be purchased as either a hard-copy book or an e-book from this link:
http://www.thebookpatch.com/BookStore/the-bahai-faith-and-unitarian-universalism-a-personal-testimony-and-analysis/8747fe7e-cb0c-4559-8f91-1a02599247e3

I’d like to sell a few dozen copies, at least, but my real hope is that the book influences people. If its contents can deter at least one person from joining the Haifan Baha’i cult and maybe even persuade him to join Unitarian Universalism instead, then my efforts will not have been in vain.

Another version that can be viewed for free can be found here:

A Critical Analysis of the Kitáb-i-Aqdas, Part Nine

At long last, I have reached the home stretch of my dealings with the Most Holy Book of Baha’u’llah. This has been a catharsis of sorts for me and I now think that once this is done, I need never write anything about my former religion again, though I will always keep and use the various blog entries I have made about it as weapons against it.

Here are the links to Part One, Part Two, Part Three, Part Four, Part Five, Part Six, Part Seven,  and Part Eight of my critique of the Most Holy Book of Baha’u’llah. And as always, I will include direct quotes from the book in red bold and my responses will be in blue italics. My source for this book is:

A Critical Analysis of the Kitáb-i-Aqdas, Part Eight

One of the most amazing things about really sitting down and going through the contents of the Kitáb-i-Aqdas is that I probably never would have been impressed with the book had I first read it as a non-Baha’i about 25 years ago. I only got a copy of it after I’d been a Baha’i for several months and by then I had strong personal ties to other Baha’is that blinded me to the flaws of the Faith. When you fall in love with PEOPLE, it often makes you overlook FACTS that otherwise should matter.

A Critical Analysis of the Kitáb-i-Aqdas, Part Seven

Once again, Dr. Dale Husband takes his scalpel and cuts into the guts of the Most Holy Book of Baha’u’llah to see what can be exposed for others to see.

A Critical Analysis of the Kitáb-i-Aqdas, Part Six

Once again, I dig into the Most Holy Book of Baha’u’llah looking for precious metals but what I tend to find instead are tons of pyrite. Despite my frustration, I continue because I hate to leave a job unfinished.
