Hello,

Just very quickly --
(1)The infallibility of the House of Justice is for the purposes of keeping unity -- it means we just say yes for the sake of saying yes. They are guardians of Bahaullahs legacy. The big guys.

(2)The House are being conservative in their interpretations. Eventually they will welcome homosexual marriage.
In my opinion Bahaullah did not forbid homosexual marriage.

(3)The way a Bahai who is homosexual can live a joyful Bahai life is to live at peace with the Administrative Order. Dont ask dont tell.

(4)which means this site is quite an excellent start.
