This quote and others similar to it got me thinking...If everyone in a city were Bahá'is and one of them became a Covenant-Breaker, how would this individual attend school? Work? Since Bahá'is are commanded to excommunicate (shun) Covenant-Breakers lest they also become shunned, who would teach him in school? Sit beside him in class? Who would employ him? He would probably be kicked out of home lest his family be shunned. So who would provide him tenancy? Would he be exiled? Or live in an isolated place like a leper? Would this treatment force him to recant his deviant beliefs? If so, wouldn't this contravene with his freedom of religion? Then I encountered this quote and I'm glad to know that the hypothetical scenario that I present above is false. The UHJ will probably decree that a particular teacher, employer, landlord, and other individuals will be permitted to associate with the Covenant-Breaker as necessary in order to preserve his civil rights.
