  Mason Remey
Charles Mason Remey was appointed a Hand of the Cause of God by Shoghi Effendi.
Mason Remey is considered by the larger group to be a Covenant-Breaker and his followers are shunned by that group.
Mason Remey in 1960 proclaimed that Shoghi Effendi had appointed him to be the second Guardian of the Bahá'í Faith in the life-time of Shoghi Effendi by means of his appointment as President of the not yet activated embryonic Universal House of Justice.

During that time Mason Remey attempted to change the plan of his fellow Hands who had determined to elect the Universal House of Justice mentioned by both Baha'u'llah and Abdul-Baha.
Mason believed that, according to the Writings, the Universal House of Justice was to have a living Guardian as its head.
Mason Remey remained silent to the general Bahá'í community until 1960 when he stated that unity could not be preserved at the cost of the guardianship.

Mason Remey again joined his fellow Hands in signing this second formal statement that there was no successor to Shoghi Effendi as Guardian of the Cause of God.
Remey had by this time begun attacking Shoghi Effendi, declaring that the Administrative Order represented only the organizing of "the Bahá'í Faith" and must be "dismantled", and that Remey now considered himself to be the "first" Guardian of the Bahá'í Faith.
The fate of those who followed Charles Mason Remey is a case study in the nature and paralyzing effect of the virus of Covenant-breaking.

 Mason Remey - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In 1960 Remey claimed to be the second Guardian of the Bahá'í Faith [1].

 Mason Remey at AllExperts
Born in Burlington, Iowa, on May 15 1874, Mason was the eldest son of Rear Admiral George Collier Remey and Mary Josephine Mason Remey, the daughter of Charles Mason, the first Chief Justice of Iowa.
In 1965 Mason Remey called for the Council to become active, and Marangella opened the sealed letter, which was a hand-written note by Mason appointing Marangella as his successor.
Letters written by Pepe Remey to individual believers contradict each other stating in some that he was never a Bahá'í nor the Guardian, and in others that he had been a Bahá'í since the early 50's when he met Mason and that he was Mason's successor.

 Position Paper   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
Mason Remey has explained that the Persians used the word badah to signify the failure of the promise of the Word of God as given by a Manifestation or Prophet.
For three years Mason Remey privately circulated to the Hands letters informing them in no uncertain terms of the error of their ways, and pleading with them to reaffirm the institution of the Guardianship.
Thus in Mason's reasoning, his appointment as President of the nascent Universal House of Justice was not merely a temporary assignment to represent the Guardian in the latter's absence, but rather tantamount to spiritual successorship to the actual station of Guardian.

 Biography of Charles Mason Remey
Mason Remey's activities, beginning in 1960, when he "proclaimed" himself the second Guardian, were a profound source of embarrassment to his fellow-Hands who, in addition to all their other heavy, heartbreaking responsibilities, now found themselves obliged to progressively remonstrate with, admonish, warn, expose and finally excommunicate him.
Remey’s Proclamation of 1960, and his adopted son’s (Joseph Pepe) letters, indicate that Remey believed himself to be the successor of Shoghi Effendi primarily because of his appointment as the President of the IBC.
Remey’s life ended in obscurity; this perception, and his simple grave, are interpreted by many as signs of divine justice for actions of his alleged opposition to the Covenant of Baha’u’llah after the death of Shoghi Effendi.

 Baha'i Faith - Baha'is Under the Provisions of the Covenant - BUPC
When Shoghi Effendi placed Mason Remey at the head of the embryonic Universal House of Justice he was continuing this lineage of David, with Mason Remey and his descendants, to be the Presidents of the Universal House of Justice for ever.
Mason Remey explained very clearly that the token is not the same as the inheritance, for if it were someone would try to steal the token for themselves, and thereby attempt to usurp the throne.
After Ridvan, 1960, Ruhiyyih Khanum and Those Who Followed Her, violated the Covenant and Mason Remey was forced to expel them from the Baha'i Religious Faith in his First and Third Encyclical letters, as the Covenant authorizes ONLY the person of the living guardian, as chief executive, to so do.

 Joel B. Marangella
In this manner, Mason, who realized that his capacity was waning [sic] to continue to carry the burden of the guardianship at his very advance [sic] age abdicated the guardianship and furthermore confirmed this act by announcing that he was turning over to me the affairs of the Faith.
Mason's statement that the inactive President of the International Council remains the President even after it is called into action correlates with his announcement of the creation of the Second International Baha'i Council in a letter dated September 21, 1964, recorded in The Glad Tidings of October 1964.
Remey, a descendant of American Colonials from New England and Virginia, was born in 1874 in Burlington, Iowa, a town along the Mississippi River, 210 miles from Chicago.

 Mason Remey and Those Who Followed Him
Since Remey had sought to base his own claim to the Guardianship on his position as president of the International Baha'i Council created by Shoghi Effendi, this action on his part appeared to give Marangella the leading position among Remey's followers.
Remey had by this time begun attacking Shoghi Effendi, declaring that the Administrative Order represented only the organizing of "the Baha'i Faith" and must be "dismantled", and that Remey now considered himself to be the "first" Guardian of the Baha'i Faith.
Lacking the energy and capacity to arouse interest among the public, this forlorn survivor of the Remey defection appears still to hope that he may somehow draw loyal members of the Baha'i community under his influence.

 Baha'i Guardians
Mason Remey later issued a Proclamation in 1960 stating that, as President of the IBC, he was the rightful 2nd Guardian.
Mason later declared that Joel had "jumped the gun" and was not supposed to open the 1961 letter until Mason was dead, and ONLY if Mason died without appointing a successor.
Remey officially dissolved the 2nd International Baha'i Council on the 18th of October 1966; thus eliminating Joel Marangella as "President" of that Council.

 Baha'i Faith Entry By Troops
Pepe wrote back that (as Mason's only son he had inherited everything of Mason's "both material and spiritual") in fact he was wearing that very medallion around his neck as he wrote the letter.[6] Only Pepe Remey fulfilled both criteria to be a son and to be appointed by the previous guardian.
Currently the Rex King group awaits the appearance of a male descendent of Baha'u'llah separate from Mason to assume the guardianship, this shows their ignorance of the Covenant as being a son is only one of the necessary criteria for guardianship, the son must also be appointed in the lifetime of the previous guardian.
Mason Remey was only given the presidency of the UHJ and was not the representative of Shoghi Effendi on that body (Shoghi Effendi had a Liaison Officer), also he was never made the head of the Faith as was Shoghi Effendi.

In 1937 CHARLES MASON REMEY (1874-1974) contracted with Pohick Episcopal Church for 5.2 acres of land to build a mausoleum for his family.
Remey reportedly chose Pohick Church because GEORGE MASON IV, his great grandfather, was a vestryman.
Remey was an architect of international reputation and a man of some wealth.

 Hands of the Cause Refute Claims to Guardianship
Mason Remey has had the temerity to assert that the beloved Guardian of the Cause appointed him during his own lifetime as his successor.
Without one written word from the Guardian, Mason Remey claims that because he was the President of the International Bahá'í Council, and because this body is the embryonic International Institution, it automatically makes him the President of that future body, and hence, Guardian of the Faith.
The Chief Stewards of the Faith, mindful of their paramount responsibility to protect the believers, have taken action to expel from the Faith Mason Remey and his supporters because of the Covenant-breaking activities and to forbid all association with them.

 Baha'i Twin Pillars Debate--Beliefnet.com
First, one can never really know what another individual is truly thinking, but from what Mason Remey wrote in his "Daily Observations" it is clear that in the days of the first conclave of Hands he was not of a mind to push himself forward.
At that time, I would surmise that Mason Remey --like Ali when Abu Bakr was designated the successor to Muhammad (Ali refraining from open rejection of the Caliphate) --would not have wanted to see any dissension or strife at such a critical time, and he signed the documents that were prepared at the time.
It was not until Mason Remey was no longer the Guardian that he began to make statements that were 180 degrees away from what he had stated over his many previous years as a Baha'i.

Remey, born in 1874, member of an eminent American family, was reared as a Christian, was educated as an architect, and had an outstanding career.
Remey has stated in his various writings that since both Abdu’l-Baha and the First Guardian had mad it clear that there must always be a Guardian, he had after the death of Shoghi Efendi earnestly tried to persuade the other Hands that the Guardianship must be continued, but they all refused to listen to him.
Remey explains his belief that, according to predictions of the ancient prophets and apostles, a terrible catastrophe is to occur on the earth in the near future, in which two-thirds of the population of the world will perish.

 Re: "Mason Remey and Those Who Followed Him"
But their violation had nothing to do with whether they followed Mason Remey or not, for Mason Remey was not a Covenant-breaker.
But to characterize Joel B. Marangella as a "forlorn survivor" of those who followed Mason Remey is to underestimate the power of the Covenant and to exaggerate the importance of the number of adherents of the Faith.
The author's implicit assumption is that the number of followers of the Guardian is the criterion by which to judge the veracity of his claim to the office.

 The Pluralism Project:
The Baha'is Under the Provision of the Covenant believe that Shoghi Effendi, the Guardian of the Faith and grandson of Abdu'l-Baha, the son of Baha'u'llah, had instated the International Baha'i Council to be the first stage of a four stage plan culminating with the Universal House of Justice.
Mason Remey, who served as a Hand of the Cause under Shoghi Effendi, was said to be the adopted and only son of Abdu'l-Baha.
He also named Joseph Pepe Remey, appointed by his father Mason Remey, to be the next Guardian seated upon the throne of King David--the president and executive of the sIBC.

 Baha'is Under the Provisions of the Covenant - BUPC - Baha'i Faith
Then [Mason throws a bone to the materialists] in time to come let us hope that there will in time be descendants of the present AGSANS who will eventually prove to be worthy of their right by inheritance to be considered worthy of this high calling – of the Guardianship.
Mason would have delighted in [the] conclusion regarding the Afnan and Aghsan branches and if it is true that Mason was, in fact, the adopted Aghsan son of 'Abdu'l-Baha, and if that fact were to be generally accepted, then I should not be able to refuse being his only possible successor....
These letters show that both Mason and Pepe were clear on these things from the very beginning; and in keeping in alignment with the Plan of Baha'u'llah given to 'Abdu'l-Baha, took the positions they did in order for the people to figure this out on their own.

Since Remey's death in 1974, some would claim a schism of the Bahá'í Faith has occurred and that the Faith is divided between the majority followers under the administration of the Universal House of Justice in Haifa and the Orthodox Bahai Faith or perhaps one of the Minor Baha'i divisions derived from Remey's claims.
A history of the Charles Mason Remey affair, and the groups which identify with him is available here: Mason Remey and Those Who Followed Him.

 Joseph Pepe Remey to Patrick Labbe 5/9/92   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-26)
Mason Remey died disheartened because he had hoped, and expected that the masses of believers would eventually come to the realization that the Faith could not progress without a Guardian.
From what Mason told me about Shoghi Effendi's experience as Guardian and how it affected him.....plus what I experienced in the first person regarding what the Guardianship did to Mason, believe me, I wouldn't wish that role on my worst enemy.
Nevertheless, If I were convinced that coming forth and taking a definite stand as Mason Remey's successor would result in peace and harmony amongst all Baha'is, I should not hesitate one minute to do so.

 Ξ Charles Mason Remey and the Bahá'í Faith - book review
Forced into “exile” in the Florentine suburb of Fiesole, Remey lived out his life branded as a defector, who, after losing lawsuits, was publicly unable to use the term “Bahá'í.
He does not directly give the reader insight into the relevance of this to the Bahá'í Faith or Remey’s memory but he seems to imply that Moon is on the right track, as Remey was when he found the Bahá'í Faith.
Charles Mason Remey and the Bahá'í Faith seems intended primarily to encourage the followers of Remey’s “orthodox” group.

Assuredly, Mason will now be able to lend his support as never before to those of us who are struggling to win victories for Bahá’u’lláh’s mighty Covenant.
Now that our beloved Mason has left us it is my hope and prayer that all of the faithful supporters of the guardianship throughout the world will rally to the support of the third Guardian.
The third Guardian fully understands the test that was theirs in their undying love for Mason and certainly does not place them in the same category with those who have violated the Covenant since the passing of Shoghi Effendi.
