The guidelines haven't changed, nor are they likely to, considering the contents of the writings on the subject.

If you were referring to anything I wrote, as you know, the Baha'i Faith doesn't allow drinking alcohol, but we're not out trying to close down bars. Similarly, while same-sex relationships are not ok in the faith, that means nothing about what happens in the secular realm. I haven't heard anyone within the faith, at any level, address the topic of demands for civil unions outside the faith.

I'm trying to find that statement on the subject from the Universal House of Justice. When I do, I'll post the link.
Yes, I was referring to your posts which leave the general impression that Baha'is condone homosexual relationships. You know this is important to me. It's one of the main reasons I started to doubt Baha'u'llah. I can't imagine a Kingdom of God in which people in gay relationships are not allowed to participate in community consultation. I know that Baha'is do not go around telling people outside the Baha'i community that they need to follow Baha'i laws, but certainly it is still expected that gay Baha'is will remain celibate, and avoid any public display of a homosexual union.

I know that's a problem for you, Lunamoth. Honestly, I wish it were otherwise, but it's tough to get past the writings on the subject and pretend they say something different.

Gays are allowed to participate on community consultation. Not everyone is sanctioned just because they are a practicing homosexual, just as not everyone is sanctioned because they are still struggling with other issues that run counter to the Faith's teachings.

I don't know the circumstances of any cases you know of, so I'm not in any position to comment on them. The cases that have come before LSAs I've served on I can't discuss, except I'd mention that in no cases did we even recommend sending the info on to National for them to consider. We read the guidelines and determined in those cases it was none of our business.

As you already know, in my opinion there needs to be more discussion on the subject among American Baha'is, because it won't work to just put our heads in the sand and ignore what's going on around us. If we're going to continue to teach that chastity is demanded except in cases of a man and woman who are legally married, then we are going to have to learn how to work with people who do believe in Baha'u'llah, but are struggling to follow what he says.

We all have our stuff that we need to overcome. I think it's weird that my personal stuff is somehow more acceptable in our society than being gay, considering the places I could've gone with my life would have been VERY destructive to people.

Homosexuality is seen as one of many tests and difficulties every individual must face, which can be discussed openly and sympathized with.


Homosexual Bahá'ís have been reprimanded for being flagrant in their presentation to the public. There are many examples of situations where an individual's administrative rights were taken away when their actions were decided by a Spiritual Assembly to be damaging to the image of the Bahá'í Faith. This response is also applied to alcoholism, heterosexual promiscuity, and anything that is considered flagrant immorality. As a general rule, the Spiritual Assemblies do not get involved in the private lives of believers, unless their actions are causing some harm to the community.


The Bahá'í Faith has received criticism in the gay community. The Baha'i administration has reminded followers of the religion not
to single out homosexuality over other transgressions of the religious code, and to be very tolerant of what is perceived to be immoral behaviour.
Thank you for posting that info Booko. I appreciate your honesty about this. The problem is that bottom line a gay Baha'i in a relationship will be viewed as being 'flagrant,' at least from all that I have heard official and unofficial on the topic. You don't need to be marching in the Gay Pride Parade with your Baha'i t-shirt on. Having a romantic cup of java and sharing a chaste kiss in the corner, but observed by another Baha'i, could be enough to get the ball rolling. So, while a homosexual person may be welcomed into the Faith, and I know first-hand that this is true, they must also accept that they must remain celibate, or work toward the goal of being celibate or in a hetero marriage. Gay people born into a Baha'i family will have to choose between the religion of their family or a life without sexual initmacy.

Hi, guys! *waves* Sorry that I'm coming into this thread a bit late, but I notice it's in the 'discussion' area, and not the 'debate' area. If one wishes to debate something like this, please create an area in the debate section. Thanks!

I've never seen a Baha'i couple of any sort having a "chaste" kiss in the corner, lunamoth. I saw a couple of teens being not at all chaste, and their behaviour was immediately corrected by one of the adults present. Actually, I'd submit that a kiss in public is not chaste at all -- it belongs at home. That isn't a very popular sentiment in this country, but it is well understood in many other cultures.

Quote:

Yes, that's true. Just as a Catholic who is ordained or enters vocations will have to choose. I know it's unfashionable in our society to believe it's possible to have a good live without having sex, but it's been possible and practiced by many people in many times in history.

And don't think the burden falls only on homosexuals. Heterosexuals who are not married have the same burden placed on them. I know a number of straight Baha'is who have never married, and remained chaste. If there's a difference, it's that I haven't heard them complain about how unjust the demands are that are placed on them, but there's probably somebody somewhere who does complain about it.

When it comes to sanctions being put on anyone, the most common reason is getting married without parental consent. There's hardly a witch hunt going on for gay Baha'is.

Well and good Booko, but it is not a 'problem,' nor does it reflect upon my 'comfort' as Scott say. I see it as a justice issue, since we are talking about the Kingdom of God here. And I see it as a compassion issue.

But is the sanctioning of even one gay Baha'i justifiable? To save the image of the Faith?

Hi Feathers, sorry if this is too hot for the community section. I do not intend to debate, just get clarification on this issue. Anyway, I think booko has answered the question.

peace,

Uh yeah...which makes it a problem for you? At least in the sense that you couldn't reconcile a belief in Baha'u'llah and the teachings on the subject. Really, lunamoth, I think you may be reading a subtext into "problem" that isn't there on my end.

Quote:
But is the sanctioning of even one gay Baha'i justifiable? To save the image of the Faith?
Is sanctioning a couple who married w/o parental permission, when there is no issue of image, justifiable?

How would you suggest we choose which of the ordinances we're going to pay attention to, and which we just ignore? We can't excuse away what it says on the grounds that it's an ancient text and meant something different in another culture. Christians can do that -- we can't.

Quote:

They too have confidentialty rules they have to follow.

I figured.

There's nothing incongruous in recognizing that same-sex relationships with children lack protections the children should have. There's nothing incongruous in demanding that simple human decency should be accorded same-sex couples on matters like hospital visits and disposition of property.

Quote:

I make the rounds doing deepenings on the subject whenever I can, because there's a lot in that statement from the House that goes ignored. And I assume when the House takes the time to write something, they probably thought it was important for us to know.
