"O ye children of men!  The fundamental purpose animating the Faith of God and His Religion is to safeguard the interests and promote the unity of the human race, and to foster the spirit of love and fellowship amongst men.
Suffer it not to become a source of dissension and discord, of hate and enmity."

-- Bahá'í International Community, Eliminating Religious Intolerance

Religion should unite all hearts and cause wars and disputes to vanish from the face of the earth; it should give birth to spirituality, and bring light and life to every soul.  If religion becomes a cause of dislike, hatred and division
it would be better to be without it, and to withdraw from such a religion would be a truly religious act.  For it is clear that the purpose of a remedy is to cure, but if the remedy only aggravates the complaint, it had better be left alone.  Any religion which is not a cause of love and unity is no religion.

-- Esslemont, Baha'u'llah and the New Era
