Spiritual evolution does not move forward through any coercion of the wills of men. God requires that men of their own volition shall co-operate with Him. He does not substitute His will for their wills, nor does He, so to speak, drive their development onward by any output of main force. He educates and trains them little by little and measures His requirements to their growing strength of mind and heart. 'Those Supreme Prophets, therefore, who are His Agents and the Masters of Evolution, are limited by the capacity of the people. They cannot put a bushel of truth into a pint measure. They cannot teach more than their hearers can learn.'


Hand of the Cause George Townshend, "The Heart of the Gospel," p. 52

Blessed is he who mingleth with all men in a spirit of utmost kindliness and love. ~Baha'u'llah

People who do not feel they can obey or accept the Teachings on a subject cannot be considered Bahá'ís, voting or otherwise.  If a time comes when they feel ready to surrender their opinions to One we believe divinely guided, they should be joyously welcomed back into the Faith.
