We Know it Happens!

Forty years ago, the Guardian predicted that a time would come when the perversion of human nature, the degradation of human conduct, the corruption and dissolution of human institutions, (would) reveal themselves . . . in their worst and most revolting aspects and when the voice of human conscience is stilled, the sense of decency and shame obscured. (Shoghi Effendi, World Order of Bahá’u’lláh, p. 187).

The Universal House of Justice has told us that “Among the signs of moral downfall in the declining social order are the high incidence of violence within the family, the increase in degrading and cruel treatment of spouses and children, and the spread of sexual abuse.” (Universal House of Justice to an individual believer, 24 January, 1993).
