…I’m a “white” woman in her 60’s who joined the bahai organization in the 70’s. I was attracted to the principals, especially the oneness of humanity. I was married to a Native American in ND with four children. In the years following I remained a steadfast bahai until recent years when I noticed the organization becoming more and more “top heavy”, with the leadership not listening to rank and file bahais, only sending directives from the top down. And while many of the directives quoted the bahai writings, in actuality the activities seemed to not reflect what a deepened bahai could believe. In my opinion Ruhi was created as top-down extracts from bahai writings with the goal of bringing in troops of people to brainwash, creating McBahais. An individual being deepened in the bahai writings seemingly became a liability to the leadership who more and more were manufactured from the Ruhi factory.
Though we had become totally inactive by 2009, ultimately through the efforts of a meddling LSA member my granddaughter ended up going to a Naw Ruz party in 2010 where the girl was. From there she ended up with this girl’s pimp. I’ve never been to or allowed my granddaughter to attend another bahai activity. After I wrote a long detailed letter to the NSA, they turned my daughters against me using them and others to slander me and my granddaughter in the most horrible ways. The letter I received back from the NSA after over six months didn’t even address my valid concerns. Instead they accused me of lying, blamed me and me only for my granddaughter being trafficked. They said both my daughters had met with the local LSA, accusing me of horrible abuse to all my children. They said they were considering removing my administrative rights because of “lies” that had “brought shame on the faith! ”
Meanwhile during this time my email and facebook accounts were hacked, and soon many of my friends and acquaintances were receiving horrible slander against me and my granddaughter. My daughters, who had not spoken to me since 2009, were involved, and some local members were too. Much of this was going on before I wrote the letter, but it increased dramatically after they received the letter. I’m an illustrator and artist and it almost killed my business. I’m not mentally ill (as they say about me), and I haven’t done the things they said I did. It’s just slander. But I realize that what was done to me has been done to many other bahais. They are too good at it. They get you to give them all the info you have that would make them liable, then they figure out how to destroy you and your entire life by using your bahai family members and everyone you know. I don’t believe it’s a faith, but an evil organization that uses religion as a front to gain power.
…My original reason for writing to the NSA was for the protection of children, and I really don’t think they’re any safer now. The NSA is too busy covering up to worry about the children. The letter back from the NSA wasn’t signed by an individual, but I believe the author was Ken Bowers, the secretary at the time. He has a reputation for arrogance and ruthlessness even from stanch supporters, so he is good at his job, which is corporate. I also know deep in my heart that the only way to “blow the whistle” is outside this organization. They have too much to lose by truely cleaning up.
