You may know actor Rainn Wilson for parts in The Office, Six Feet Under, and Many others.

The interview that appeared in Religion Unplugged provides a great introduction to The Baha’i Faith.

I know very little about it, though the following quote is why I am interested in learning more.

“Baha’u’llah’s teachings are very much progressive social teachings that are here for the unification of humankind,” Wilson said. “This is why I’m a Baha’i right now, especially because of this current political climate, Baha’u’llah’s message is one of love and unity and bringing people together. It’s the elimination of racial prejudice, the equality of women and men, elimination of extremes between wealth and poverty, universal education and the harmony of science and religion.”
