HDR Efex ProAccording to the direct and sacred command of God we are forbidden to utter slander, are commanded to show forth peace and amity, are exhorted to rectitude of conduct, straightforwardness and harmony with all the kindreds and peoples of the world. We must obey and be the well-wishers of the governments of the land, regard disloyalty unto a just king as disloyalty to God himself and wishing evil to the government a transgression of the Cause of God.

~ ‘Abdu’l-Bahá
