It’s a question of principle

The Bahá’í Faith is the youngest of the world’s independent religions. Among the many Bahá’í principles are the following:

the unity of the races and elimination of prejudice, the equality of women and men, universal education, the elimination of extremes of wealth and poverty, a spiritual solution to economic problems, the harmony of science and religion, the independent investigation of truth, the creation of a world commonwealth of nations that will keep the peace through collective security.
