My thoughts on Mr. Cosby

Submitted by Adrian on

As everyone has heard, this week Actor/Comedian Bill Cosby was sentenced to 3 to 10 years for sexual assault.  There has been a great deal of conversation, mostly bad and condemning of Mr. Cosby.  I, personally, have stayed out of the conversation (until now).  Honestly I am torn with what has happened.  I will not go into too much detail except to say that a part of me is very sad about what happened and I wish he had not been found guilty.  That is a part of the reason I have stayed out of it and before you start attacking me for feeling this way I will tell you why I feel this way.

An Observation, now that the election is over.

Now that the election is over I have a couple of observation/thoughts I wish to express.

The first of these is that as Bahá’ís we are encouraged to stay out of conflict and contention, which are the characteristics of our partisanship politics practiced in our current political system.   Being Bahá’í is about coming together, working together for the greater good of all humanity.

Bahá’u’lláh, the founder of the Bahá’í Faith also has told the Bahá’ís to be active and loyal to our government and here in the United States it means to vote our individual conscience when there is a local, state or national election and not to participate in the “which party is better, or this candidate is better” mudslinging that always seems to come up..
